Admire the fact that Disney, who owns the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will soon be able to remove his superhero movies from Netflix as soon as they launch their own streaming site this fall. That is why you may want to visit some of your favorites on this list again before they disappear. There are also two Batman films, as well as the cult films & # 39; The Crow & # 39; and the original & # 39; Hellboy & # 39 ;.
1. "BLACK PANTHER" (2018)
Director: Ryan Coogler. Starring: Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker.
This Marvel film with a predominantly African-American cast, marked a new path as the first cartoon hero superhero film to participate in the Academy Awards Best Picture category, one of seven nominations. It would claim three trophies – for costume design, original score and production design. The plot: T’Challa (Boseman) is called the King of Wakanda, a hidden and highly advanced African nation who vigorously monitors vibranium. His primary enemy is Killmonger (Jordan), a black-ops soldier who wants to fire his cousin. Rotten Tomatoes score: 96%.
2. "THE DARK KNIGHT" (2008)
Director: Christopher Nolan. writers: Christopher and Jonathan Nolan. With: Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Aaron Eckhart, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Morgan Freeman.
The middle film of the DC Comics trilogy by Nolan is considered to be one of the best film translations of the superhero genre. Fans of the film thought it was worth getting a nomination for a Best Picture Oscar in a year in which "Slumdog Millionaire" won. Instead, it received eight other Academy Award nods, almost all for technical categories – except Ledger & # 39; s creepy personification of the psychopathic Joker, complete with the slogan: "Why so serious?" The actor – who died six months before the film was opened – would win a posthumous supporting actor Oscar for his critically acclaimed act as a villain who will take on Bale & Batman aka billionaire Bruce Wayne. Rotten Tomatoes score: 94%.
3. “THOR: RAGNAROK (2017)
Director: Taika Waititi. Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo, Cate Blanchett, Anthony Hopkins, Benedict Cumberbatch, Idris Elba, Tessa Thompson, Jeff Goldlum.
New Zealand helper Waititi is a cheeky devil and he turns a rather bleak Marvel franchise into an amusement park of fun in this third-screen chapter on a big screen starring Hemsworth as the hammery Asgardian God of Thunder. The muscular deity has to compete against Hela (a nicely filthy Cate Blanchett), his sister whose nickname & # 39; the goddess of death & # 39; and who strives for a reign of terror. Rotten Tomatoes score: 94%.
4. "AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR" (2018)
Drivers: Anthony and Joe Russo. Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Josh Brolin.
A crowded third edition of Marvel & # 39; s "Avengers" franchise finds Brolin & # 39; s growling purple gargoyle of a space villain named Thanos in an attempt to sweep six magical gems known as the Infinity Stones. His mission is to wipe out half the population of the universe. It actually determines what happens in this year's monster hit "Avengers: Endgame". The visual effects were nominated for an Oscar. Rotten Tomatoes score: 85%.
5. "ANT-MAN AND THE WASP" (2018)
Director: Peyton Reed. Starring: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lily, Michael Pena, Michelle Pfeiffer, Michael Douglas.
The second round with this insect-sized Marvel superhero has a fascinating cast that is not afraid to mock their missions and themselves in this benign flight of imaginative ridicule. Rudd as Ant-Man (who can also blow himself up to gigantic proportions) and Lily as the wasp form a winning pair as they save the galaxy, like mortals with super powers who often appealed to reach. The vehicle hunts for overkill, but it's especially fun. Rotten Tomatoes score: 88%.
6. "BATMAN BEGINS" (2005)
Director: Christopher Nolan. Starring: Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Liam Neeson, Katie Holmes, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Cillian Murphy, Ken Watanabe.
This original story restarting the film franchise that began in 1989 with Michael Keaton as the Caped Crusader is a more realistic, dark and sinister interpretation of the DC Comics character. Bale's orphan Bruce Wayne trains to become a hunter and learns the manners of the ninja. He decides to fight back against those criminals who want to destroy Gotham City while posing as a self-serving playboy while chasing two criminals, the Scarecrow (Murphy) and Ra's al Ghul (Neeson). Rotten Tomatoes score: 84%.
7. "THE CROW" (1994)
Director: Alex Proyas. With: Brandon Lee, Ernie Hudson, Bai Ling, Rochelle Davis.
This comic book hero was based on series published by Caliber Press. The film has become a cult classic in the genre, a status that is partly due to the premature death of his then rising star Lee, the son of combat sport icon Bruce Lee. He died on the set after being shot by accident. As for the plot, Eric Draven (Lee), whose fiancee is raped and beaten on Devils Night in Detroit, is brutally murdered by her abusers the day before their wedding H. A year later a crow visits his grave and Eric climbs out of his grave. He then pursues those responsible for his death and his future bride. Rotten Tomatoes score: 81%.
8. HELLBOY (2004)
Director: Guillermo del Toro. Starring: Ron Perlman, John Hurt, Selma Blair, Jeffrey Tambor, Doug Jones.
This supernatural action thriller is based on a graphic novel by Dark Horse Comics about character, a demonic beast that has become a superhero, who secretly protects the world against evil supernatural powers. Much of the praise was given to Perlman's achievements. As critic Roger Ebert wrote: "In Perlman it has found an actor who not only plays a superhero, but enjoys it … he chews on his cigar, pulls his tail and fights his demons with something approaching." Rotten Tomatoes score: 81%.
