THE BEST Superheroes

Wonder Woman: A Symbol of Progress

Wonder Woman: A Symbol of Progress

Wonder Woman and her insignia are often adopted by people fighting for recognition and equality. And for good reason. Kaptainkristian traced the origins of the superhero to remind us that Diana Prince was born from a progressive and optimistic (albeit egotistical) mind.

Spider-Man: Homecoming (Trailer 2)

Spider-Man: Homecoming (Trailer 2)

“If you’re nothing without this suit, then you shouldn’t have it.” Spider-Man: Homecoming appears to be a reverse origin story: young Peter Parker already has super powers, but not a real reason or appreciation for what it means to be a hero.

Hot Toys’ 12″ action figure gives us an in-depth look at Peter Parker’s homemade suit in Spider-Man: Homecoming. The figure comes with three different eyepieces, an unmasked Tom Holland head, four pairs of swappable hands and spider-web effects.

Justice League (Trailer)

Justice League (Trailer)

While we got burned by Zack Snyder’s last DC Comics film, we’re hopeful that the teamup of Bats, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg, and The Flash will result in something more magical. The first full trailer certainly doesn’t seem as dreary and humorless as Batman v. Superman.

Wonder Woman (Trailer 3)

Wonder Woman (Trailer 3)

Yup, another superhero origin story. But we have to hand it to DC for putting together compelling trailers for Wonder Woman, which follows the princess of the Amazons, and her rise to become a hero for all of us. We’re also excited that Patty Jenkins (Monster) directed it.

Wolverine: Logan’s Retrospective

Wolverine: Logan’s Retrospective

YouTuber Yoko Higuchi shares what is surely just one of the thousands of inevitable online tributes to Hugh Jackman and his 17-year stint as Wolverine. Johnny Cash’s cover of Hurt is the slow motion of soundtracks, but if you watched Logan you know that the song is a great fit.

Deadpool 2 (Teaser)

Deadpool 2 (Teaser)

(PG-13: Language) The merc with a mouth drops by to remind us of his existence with this hilarious parody of a famous superhero trope, a Stan Lee cameo, a pint of delicious ice cream, some fast moving smallprint, and more snark than you can shake a stick at.

Wolverine’s Movie Timeline

Wolverine’s Movie Timeline

Instead of dwelling on the fact that most of Hugh Jackman’s 17-year stint as Wolverine was wasted on bad movies, IGN chose to sift through the wreckage to piece together the feral X-Man’s history as told through the films.

Guardians Vol. 2 (Trailer)

Guardians Vol. 2 (Trailer)

“All you do is yell at each other. You’re not friends.” Groot says hi, Gamora channels Marvel vs. Capcom, Drax kills a spaceship, Rocket laughs maniacally, and Peter meets someone special in the first full trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

Thanks to Marvel’s hit movies, more and more fans are being introduced to the hyperbolic world of superhero comic books. Variant Comics gives us casuals a look at how far the dragon balling goes with this list of the Marvel world universe multiverse’s gods.

Avengers: Infinity War (First Look)

Avengers: Infinity War (First Look)

Marvel rings the bell for the hype train with a short interview with the cast and crew of Avengers: Infinity War. The two-part film is the culmination of nearly a decade of after credit-scenes. Seriously though we hope they can make Thanos interesting.

Logan (Trailer 2)

Logan (Trailer 2)

(PG-13: Language) The first trailer for the Wolverine movie Logan focused on its dramatic aspects. This one shows us the lighter and more action-packed sequences from Prof. X, Wolvie and X-23’s road trip. Please let this be good.

Batman: Arkham Knight Action Figure

Batman: Arkham Knight Action Figure

Hot Toys ends the year with a bang by announcing this incredibly faithful sixth-scale action figure of the Dark Knight as he appears in the Batman: Arkham Knight video game. The 13″ tall figure comes with two faces, four pairs of hands and a ton of weapons and equipment.

Wonder Woman vs. Wolverine

Wonder Woman vs. Wolverine

(Gore) What’s a goddess to a fast healer? Actually, probably more than he can handle. The feral Canadian invades the land of the Amazons in the latest episode of batinthesun’s Super Power Beat Down. Skip to 4:16 for the fight.

Superheroes Halftime Show

Superheroes Halftime Show

During the recent lopsided battle between the Buckeyes and the Cornhuskers, OSU’s marching band kept us entertained with a fun halftime show featuring a variety of our favorite heroes taking over the turf. It also reminded us how much we miss memorable superhero music.

Logan x X-Men Fan Trailer

Logan x X-Men Fan Trailer

“Charles, the world is not the same as it was. Mutants – they’re gone now.” YouTuber afauclair intensified the already somber trailer for Logan, adding scenes from the past FOX X-Men movies to contextualize Wolverine’s exhaustion and loss.

Doctor Strange (Teaser 2)

Doctor Strange (Teaser 2)

“The Avengers protect the world from physical dangers. We safeguard it against more mystical threats.” The Doctor conjures his cape out of thin air, Kaecilius provides comic relief, and reality origami is a hit mystic hobby in this TV spot for Doctor Strange.

ROAR

Not to be confused with the insane 1970s film about living with lions (which you also must watch), Stuart Langfield & Dylan Rekert’s short film is a contemplative take on the superhero genre, and a rare look at where superpowers lead heroes in their dying days.

Nightwing vs. Winter Soldier

Nightwing vs. Winter Soldier

The former sidekicks square off in Super Power Beat Down’s latest episode. You can skip to 4:45 for the fight, but you’ll miss out on a sweet Legion cosplay and the young Suicide Squad. Plus you won’t be able to brace yourself for the cringey acting and dialogue.

HISHE: X-Men: Apocalypse

HISHE: X-Men: Apocalypse

How It Should Have Ended questions both the quantity and quality of the Horsemen, the role of Magneto’s family, and how all the destruction could’ve been avoided if Apocalypse just opened up a hair salon. Stay fierce, Beast.

The Flash Season 3 (Trailer)

The Flash Season 3 (Trailer)

“Now who’s the villain Flash?!” My name is Barry Allen, and I messed up big time. Unable to let go of his tragic past, Barry uses his super speed to change his childhood. He got the present that he wanted, but he literally created a whole new world to get it.
