THE BEST Superheroes

What’s Wrong with Superhero Movies?

What’s Wrong with Superhero Movies?

(PG-13: Language) While you may not agree or feel as strongly as YouTuber I Hate Everything does about the flood of superhero flicks, he makes several great points. A movie should stand on its own, not be a mishmash of references, CGI and teasers for sequels.

Doctor Strange (Teaser)

Doctor Strange (Teaser)

Dr. Stephen Strange used to be a neurosurgeon, but an accident damaged his hands. While looking for a way to heal, he comes upon a mystical being that trains him to be the Sorcerer Supreme, which sounds like an awesome pizza flavor but is sadly just a mystical Neo.

The Road to Civil War

The Road to Civil War

“If we can’t accept limitations, we’re no better than the bad guys.” MCU Exchange did Marvel a huge solid with this awesome montage of clips from past Marvel movies and TV series that point to the big confrontation in Captain America: Civil War.

A behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming animated adaptation of Alan Moore and Brian Bolland’s comic book Batman: The Killing Joke. Kevin Conroy, Tara Strong and Mark Hamill return as Batman, Batgirl and the Joker respectively. The movie drops Summer 2016.

Captain America: Civil War (Trailer 2)

“We need to be put in check.” Iron Man throws his support behind a jail for super-powered beings, whether friend or foe. But Captain America doesn’t think his colleagues deserve such an insulting – HOLY CRAP.

Batman v Superman (Trailer 4)

Batman v Superman (Trailer 4)

Everybody loves Clark Kent, Diana is like no other woman and Bruce Wayne is chaining combos like his video game counterpart in the final trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Go go Bat armor!

Capt. America: Civil War (Teaser)

Capt. America: Civil War (Teaser)

The lines are drawn and the characters – well, most of them – have chosen their sides. Iron Man, War Machine, Black Widow, Vision and the Black Panther take on Cap, the Winter Soldier, the Falcon, Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch and Ant-Man in a super powered Civil War.

X-Men: Apocalypse (Teaser)

X-Men: Apocalypse (Teaser)

“Everything they’ve built will fall!” Olivia Munn’s Psylocke is fully revealed and the X-Men’s god-like villain wreaks havoc on a scale befitting a man who calls himself Apocalypse in the film’s Super Bowl spot.

Zaschitniki (Teaser)

Zaschitniki (Teaser)

While we don’t know if it’ll be shown outside of Russia, this X-Men style superhero flick looks like it could be fun. The film is set in an alternate Soviet Union where mutant superheroes band together to protect the country from supernatural threats.

Batman v Superman: DoJ (Trailer 2)

Batman v Superman: DoJ (Trailer 2)

Even Batman and Superman’s earthly alter egos dislike each other, but they will have to work together to defeat a terrifying threat. The main characters of Zack Snyder’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice make themselves known in this new trailer.

Batman’s in over his head in the newest teaser for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Who knew Ben Affleck would look great in the Dark Knight’s mask? Perhaps Matt Damon would be a good Robin. Or Martian Manhunter.

Superhero Movie Mistakes

Superhero Movie Mistakes

Cracked points out some of the useless quirks of some superhero movies: totally unnecessary revisions, overusing characters and settings, and repeating origin stories. Do the opposite and you might just get a winner.

Capt. America: Civil War (Trailer)

Capt. America: Civil War (Trailer)

The world’s governments want superheroes to be accountable for their actions, with Cap and Iron Man taking opposing stances. The film adaptation of Marvel’s hit comic book crossover appears to be much smaller in scale, but we’ll take what we can get.

Batman v. Superman Circa 1949

Batman v. Superman Circa 1949

The criminally underrated Vulture Remix used clips from the 1948 serial Superman and the hilariously awful 1949 serial Batman and Robin to create an early 20th century version of Zack Snyder’s upcoming film.

Wolverine Monkey

Wolverine Monkey

While in Indonesia, photographer Lessy Sebastian captured this photo of a Wolf’s mona monkey – whose coloration and pointy ears are reminiscent of Wolverine’s costume. Though its claws aren’t made of adamantium. At least we don’t think so.

Fantastic Four (Trailer 2)

Fantastic Four (Trailer 2)

This trailer for the Fantastic Four re-reboot is notable for two things. First of all, it’s the most comprehensive look yet at the background stories of Marvel’s royal family. Then there’s its special announcement.

Dogs of the Marvel Universe

Dogs of the Marvel Universe

Illustrator Josh Lynch has an ongoing series of illustrations where he turns Marvel superheroes into dogs. We can’t decide which one we like best. MODOG is probably the right answer, but we love the Mr. Fantastic dachshund so much.

Every Justice League Member Ever

Every Justice League Member Ever

DC Comics’ video presents all of the characters who became part of the Justice League, from Superman and other fan favorites to obscure ones like General Glory. It’s also proof that it’s hard to come up with cool character names.

Avengers: AoU Easter Eggs

Avengers: AoU Easter Eggs

(SPOILERS) Avengers: Age of Ultron is packed with characters, teasers for future Marvel films and as Mr. Sunday Movies points out it, references to the comic books that casual fans won’t recognize.

Marvel vs. DC: Fight!

Marvel vs. DC: Fight!

(PG-13 Language) The Avengers take on The Justice League in this ridiculously over the top cosplay battle from the guys at RackaRacka. Despite Bruce Wayne and Tony Stark’s wonderful toys, the Hulk’s fist is still our favorite weapon.

Ant-Man (Trailer)

Ant-Man (Trailer)

The debut trailer for Ant-Man assures us that Marvel is sticking to the formula that made a bunch of a-holes household names: equal parts action, comedy and eye candy. Besides, there’s this guy for the wilder stuff.

Superpowered Post-Punk Marvels

Superpowered Post-Punk Marvels

Butcher Billy’s new series of superhero-themed mashups features post-punk and new wave artists such as The Smiths, Siouxsie and the Banshees and Devo. Get them on various merch on Red Bubble.

Batman: Arkham Knight (Gameplay 2)

Batman: Arkham Knight (Gameplay 2)

The latest gameplay video for Batman: Arkham Knight showcases the game’s open world, where citizens gawk and scream as Bats basically flies and power slides all over Gotham. We wish we could also even the odds just by pressing a button.

Avengers: Age of Ultron (TV Spot)

Avengers: Age of Ultron (TV Spot)

Our first glimpse at Avengers: Age of Ultron was heavy on the drama. Then we saw a smattering of humor. And now we have this reassurance that yes, the movie will meet its quota of lighthearted quips and nonchalant badassery.
