We are now approaching the end of this decade, and I just felt like discussing the best and the worst of the Superhero movies which came out. Despite some occassional disappointments in the genre, the 2000's overall, is the best decade ever experienced by Superhero films. Early on, we were treated with X-Men, Spider-Man and their fantastic sequels; Spider-Man 2 and X2, all of these films where character development mattered just as much as the action gave a lot of heart set the bar higher for the genre. In the middle of the decade we were treated to a massive revamption of the Batman saga with Batman Begins: One of the darkest and compelling of the character's films. Also, in 2006 we were given a surprisingly good Superman film and near the end, we were astonished with the supremely amazing critical and commercial success of The Dark Knight, often hailed by many to be the best Superhero movie of all time. Iron Man was great too, and I heard Watchmen was well appreciated by the critics.
But what about the shortcomings? Yeah there were quite a few, nothing like the 80's or the 90's (everyone knows what I mean when I talk about the 90's), but still, we were thrashed a lot mid way through with the release of X-Men the Last Stand to Zoom and all the way forward to Spider-Man 3. Blade Trinity was a somewhat disappointment and Elektra was a disastrously boring film. Need I say more? Yes I think so. Fantastic Four: Rise of the Sliver Surfer was a bust and there was the mediocre Punisher film by Thomas Jane.
Overall, this decade was a great decade; one responsible for revolutionising the superhero film industry, and hopefully next decade, we'll have an even bigger success in this genre.
