Name Email Address Is 2012 the year of the superhero movie showdown? ‘The Avengers’ (1 May) ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ (3 Jul) ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ (19 Jul) Giant-sized superhero properties are Hollywoods latest golden ticket – meaning, you have to do a lot wrong to botch it all up; which ‘Green Lantern’ did last year. Sorry Ryan. Modern superheroes are this gen’s action heroes, with the superhero movie as the tent-pole release of the summer for quite a while now, for a number of reasons. Most of the action heroes (Stallone, Willis) are all old and broken down now, and without suitable replacements. Experts The over-the-top nature of the superhero medium also ensures their status as the most accessible form of true escapist entertainment. And in the era of the internet, fan-boy hype can begin as early as two years before release, ensuring free word-of-mouth marketing. Kids, kiddults, and women are into these movies these days. And yes, it is a little disconcerting to see your girlfriend openly drooling at men in spandex. Page 1 of 4

Thats way too much fan-boy power on one screen and way too many SC Reviews Contests abs for the ladies at the same time. Movie Lover Reviews Announcement Weekend Guide Review Search for feature articles The Amazing Spider-Man trailer Sandwiched in the middle, we have a “way too soon” reboot of Spider-Man – ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’, especially for those of us who still have the image of Topher Grace repeatedly pulling back his Venom symbiote mask. But we digress! The first trailer left us thinking this would be a depressingly mopey take on ol Webhead, but the second trailer has shown a new side of Spidey -- the trash-talking kid from the comics that wasnt shown much in the Raimi movies.

  3. 3. 2012 summer movie preview: The Superhero films - 6/18/12 5:57 AM The Dark Knight Rises trailer Rounding things off is Christopher Nolans Batman trilogy, ‘The Dark Knight Rises’. Its a bittersweet thought, knowing that the movie before ‘Batman Begins’ was ‘Batman And Robin’ – lets hope we never ever reach that point again – and while “The Dark Knight” is one of the best movies of all time, surely the only way to top it is to have new villain Bane and Batman duel on screen with unintelligible dialogue through slurred voices.
