I am a huge fan of the comic book superhero movies that have been coming out from Marvel and DC Comics seems to be pretty absent so far from this scene but who knows what they’ll do; the movies feel like they are getting much better. Not only on the visual effects, but I find the casting of actors and the acting of said actors is becoming far better.
I recently saw Captain America: The Winter Soldier, maybe not Oscar worthy but it was pretty damn good; I especially loved Robert Redford as Alexander Pierce because he did an amazing job. Anthony Mackie as Falcon was also a great addition to the Marvel universe; I just feel like the superhero genre of films keeps improving.
It won’t be long till an Oscar will be given to a superhero movie; Heath Ledger was the first actor to recieve an Oscar for the portrayal of a comic book character in a movie. Heath won for his performance as The Joker in “The Dark Knight“; he did do an amazing job presenting a new take on The Joker and really deserved it. I believe it’s only in due time that Superhero movies will start being contenders for the Oscars, I can’t wait to see that day.
