In fact, the superhero genre as a whole seemed to swing towards the dark and gritty at the time, however Guardians showed how much it’s a comic superhero movie was not a genre parody might do the trick.

What does it mean for a legend to die? Most mainstream superhero franchises that follow the lead of comics will not let their universes end. Maybe some characters may die, and a few of them may not reappear, but the universe and the brand live on. This is not the case Logan.
Like the finale in the original x men actor Hugh Jackman (and originally also Patrick Stewart), Logan take the superhero fantasy of invincibility and see what happens when that fantasy ends and reality sets in and brings violence and death to a world of heroes.

Aside from its influence, however, it is still a gripping and well-told story about Batman and his relationship with Gotham City.

Stream on Disney +
2018 Avengers: Infinity War was the accumulation of more than a decade of work on 17 MCU movies, and it was planned as few movies sooner or later, with its first trailer garnering hundreds of millions of views on YouTube. Somehow the film met and even exceeded those expectations.
Seeing all the great MCU actors on the same screen was a monumentally exciting feeling, but crossover films are best when their novelty is combined with amazing character work and each actor brings their A-game, word game. When half of the heroes turn to dust, it feels like a full-scale tragedy, creating one of the toughest obstacles for the second film in this two-part story.

Second half of Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame was a time travel, robbery and superhero movie all in one. Since half of Infinity WarThe actors in Gone Until the Final Battle also meant more time with the survivors, who for the most part happened to be the most veteran characters in MCU.
Half of the universe that turned to dust may have been tragic, but it was always expected to return End the gamebut non-dust-related deaths in End the game is irreversible.

1 The Dark Knight (2008) – 9.0
Stream on HBO Max
What gives Black knight trilogy the best IMDb average is not only due to the fact that the three movies are in the top ten of all time for superhero movies on IMDb, but that The Black Knight in itself is the 4th highest rated film period, on tens of thousands of titles. It’s no surprise that this is IMDb’s favorite superhero movie.
That recognition comes down to the story, which is really led by Heath Ledger’s Joker, as he and Batman are locked in a truly epic battle for Gotham’s soul to prove which worldview is correct: order and decency, or chaos and destruction. It is on par with the mythical, with a resonance that goes back to the earliest written stories in history. It’s hard to imagine a superhero movie beating its legacy.
