Superhero movies seem to be all the rage in Hollywood for the last several decades. Yet, getting them right is quite difficult. There are more bad ones than good ones (Daredevil, anyone?).

Yet, when a really good superhero movie comes along, it transcends the genre and can be held high amongst the best that cinema can offer. Watch The Dark Knight online and you'll see one that won an Oscar!
And sometimes a superhero movie can buck the trend that a film series gets worse as subsequent chapters come along. Watch Iron Man 3 online and you'll see what we mean.
