The Internet now offers you the possibility to watch all your favorite blockbuster movies. 2012 was the year of superhero movies. The theaters were invaded by some of the most famous superheros of all time: Batman, Spiderman, Ironman, Thor, Hulk and many more.
Prepare to have your mind blown, your bum stuck to the seat and the inability to blink for the whole duration of the movie.
The Dark Knight Rises
Just look at the cast of the movie! It’s almost like an Inception cast reunion: Tom Hardy, Michael Caine, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Cillian Murphy. Let’s not forget Christian Bale and the astonishing Anne Hathaway. This is the third and the final installment in the Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. Can you expect anything but epic-ness from Christopher Nolan?
The cast list for this movie is more than awesome: Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Scarlet Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson and Tom Hiddleston. Everybody looked forward for this movie, and as expected, the public was more than ecstatic about it.
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance
As Johnny Blaze, played by the awesome Nicholas Cage, hides out in Eastern Europe, he is called upon to stop the devil, who is trying to take human form. Despite the mixed reviews the first movie received, Marvel decided to create a sequel to this kick-ass comic book. Fans of the comic book character loved it and the movie became another superhero blockbuster.
The Amazing Spiderman
Director Marc Webbs takes on the challenge of creating a different Spiderman movie from the previous trilogy directed by Sam Raimi. Andrew Garfield plays Peter Parker, the shy yet very smart college kid whose life takes a whole different turn once he is bitten by a radioactive spider. As the other Spiderman films have, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko are coming in to make sure that no one messes with the characters.
Upcoming Superhero Movies
Man of Steel
Remember Christopher Reeves playing the all-American superhero Superman? The Man of Steel is back this year under the magic hand of Zack Snyder, director of Watchmen and 300. As an alien infant is raised on Earth, and grows up with superhuman abilities. With a great cast that includes Henry Cavill, Russel Crowe and Kevin Costner, the movie is sure to become a box office smash.
Unfortunately, the teaser trailer for this movie hasn’t been released yet. But, from the very short synopsis found on IMDb we find out that Wolverine travels to Japan to train with a samurai warrior. James Mangold (director of 3:10 to Yuma, Walk the Line, Girl, Interrupted) takes on the job of directing the movie. Wolverine: Origins was a great movie. Let’s hope that this one will do justice for X-men’s best mutant, Wolverine.
Superhero movies have taken over the theatres. Comic book geeks, fans of one hero or another and children are more than ecstatic to immerse themselves in a whole different world. So, are you looking forward for the next superhero movies?
