The superhero content has caught on like wildfire. Right the whole of the internet including video-streaming platforms like Netflix are flooded with superhero TV shows and movies. In the past decade, there has been so much superhero hullabaloo that it is impossible to watch it all. But with Netflix, all the superhero fans can watch their favorite superhero film without any interruptions.
Superhero movies have always been a staple on Netflix but with Disney+ Hotstar in action now, it looks like the Marvel movies will be leaving Netflix after all. The exit will not happen suddenly so you’ve still got time to watch all your favorite superhero movies on Netflix. Keep reading to populate your ‘Watch List’ with superhero movies on Netflix.
The Amazing Spiderman
This one happens to be the first one of The Amazing Spiderman series. It didn’t break the Box Office but it’s a good watch on Netflix. The story starts like any other Spiderman movie where a radioactive spider bites Andrew Garfield, playing Spiderman, which turns him into the ever-loved Spiderman. The geeky Peter Parker must fight off the lizard as Spiderman before his family returns from the vacation.
Marvel’s Avengers have to be the jewel in their crown of superhero films. Before the Avengers happened nobody could imagine their entire universe’s superheroes in one frame. Avengers brings together Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye, Black Widow and the Hulk in a ruthless battle with Thanos and Loki.
Captain America – The First Avenger
It is the gripping, old gold storey of how Steve Rogers, a struggling military aspirant turns into the powerhouse Captain America. The first film of the Marvel Universe showcases how Steve turned into Captain America. It is an entertaining watch, to say the least.
The Dark Knight
Director Christopher Nolan must be lauded for his contribution to the superhero world. Not for the Dark Knight but for The Joker, an antagonist that is far more loved and admired by superhero fans all over the world. In this film, Batman travels across the world to save Gotham City from the ghoulish young man calling himself The Joker.
The Dark Knight Rises
The Dark Knight Rises is the last film in the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy that sees Batman healing off a gruesome injury that he faced at the hands of his nemesis, Bane. The action-packed film caps off the extravagant Dark Knight series with a bang.
Iron Man 3
Coming a long way from the disastrous Iron Man 2, this film in the series captures the audience’s attention with a talented star cast where Robert Downey Jr plays Tony Stark, Guy Pierce is seen as Adian Killian, and Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin. This one also promises a good nostalgia trip where the best Ironman stories like Extremis have been revived.
Gorilla Grodd’s time displacement machine transports all of Batman’s enemies to feudal Japan. Batman Ninja must travel to the city and seek the help of his allies like the Catwoman and the extended Bat-family to restore peace in the city. The enemy gang is ruled by none other than the Joker who tries every trick in the book to defeat Batman Ninja.
The legendary comic book finally got a big-screen space in 2009 with Watchmen. Jackie Earle Haley’s representation of the uncompromising and brutal Rorschach is hands-down the best art direction of its times. The enigmatic characters and excellent art direction will win your hearts this weekend. It’s a MUST-WATCH superhero movie on Netflix.
Guardian of the Galaxy: Volume 2
Do not watch this one before you’ve watched the Guardian of the Galaxy: Volume 1. Both of the films have such a great heart and fun factor that they’re hard to ignore if you’ve got the love for superheroes. Produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Motion Pictures introduces Ego, a charming character who introduces himself as Quill’s alleged father. Quill and his team of galactic defenders set out on a mission to find the truth.
The dashing Ryan Reynolds essays the role of the superhero Green Lantern. As a test pilot, he’s been granted superhuman powers to become invisible, travel in time, and heal among other powers. He is assigned the responsibility to fight off the evil Parallax from the face of the Earth to prove his worth to Hal Jordan. It is a good watch when you’re just getting into the superhero universe.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
This film takes the accolade home when talking about the best Marvel film ever made. Relying heavily on the action-thriller aspect of the film, this one barely touches the superhero element of the characters. After the Battle of New York, Steve Rogers finally comes to peace with his role in the agency called S.H.I.E.L.D. but his instincts tell him otherwise.
Gotham is yet another side story to the Batman franchise. This film gives us a look into the early lives of police detective James Gordon, Selina Kyle, The Riddler, The Penguin, Poison Ivy, and others. In this film, Bruce Wayne is young and still under the making while James Gordon’s story takes the centre stage.
