Superhero movies have become the staple of blockbusters for the past decade with movies featuring major and not-so-major Marvel and DC Comics characters, taking these heroes straight from the comic books onto the big screen and it has been a very enjoyable experience. Now, with Avengers: Infinity War coming out in nearly a month and more superhero movies (Ant-Man and the Wasp and Aquaman) gracing the big screen later on this year I would like to share with you my ten favorite superheroes. Enjoy!
Okay, I didn’t even realize how much I liked Bucky until I saw him in the end-credits scene in Black Panther. I got giddily excited seeing him and that’s saying something. Throughout the films he has been in he has slowly begun to grow on me and now I can honestly say he is one of my favorite superheroes. I can’t wait to see him return in Avengers: Infinity War and I’m beyond ecstatic to see what his new vibranium arm can do.
I used to not like Thor. In fact, I thought he was kind of lame. He was this pretty-faced, god of thunder with flowing golden locks and a special hammer and he just wasn’t cool to me. Whenever he was around the other Avengers he was always the one I was least interested in. And then there was Thor: Ragnarok and my view of him changed completely.
Not only was he funny but the fact that they gave him a complete, unconventional makeover by cutting his golden mane and ridding him of his hammer was the perfect growth for him. After seeing the film a few times I actually really like him now and I’m so glad about it.
8. Black Widow
I am SO excited to see Avengers: Infinity War and one of those reasons is because of Black Widow. She’s been on the run since Captain America: Civil War and now that she’s back it’s awesome to see how different she has become. Her signature red hair is now replaced by a blond do-over, she’s got new weapons and a new outfit, but I’m sure she still the same kick-butt hero she was the last time I saw her. Another thing that’s exciting about her return in Avengers: Infinity War is how prominent her role seems to be in the movie. For a long time she was just a sidekick, a pretty face among the rugged male heroes, but now she’s standing alongside Captain America not as a co-star but as a leader in her own right and it’s kind of amazing. And that’s why I can’t wait to see her movie in 2020 because I know for a fact it’s going to be off the chain! 🙂
