Friday Link-Up: Superheroes
Feel free to drop any of your favorite links from the last week into the link-up below.
But today, our theme for discussion is Superheroes! I've never been a big comic book guy, so I don't have a huge encyclopedic knowledge of Superheros. Most of my Superhero knowledge comes from the 90s Superhero TV shows I grew up with, videogames, and friends who know more about them than I do.
That being said, I love a good Superhero movie. Marvel has been knocking it out of the park lately and I've been eating it up. They've had some misses along with their hits, but movies like The Avengers and Captain America: Winter Soldier show that they're on the right path. I'm super excited for the next Avengers movie and I'm really curious to see what they do with Ant Man. The Marvel movies are helping me get a new appreciation for superheroes as a genre.
I've been less impressed with the DC movies, except for the latest Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy. Those were amazing. I think I've watched all the other DC movies and none of them had a big impact on me.
What I would really like is a new twist on Superheros. I loved the premise of the show Heroes that was on NBC a few years ago, but that show got hit brutally by the writers strike and never truly coalesced into what it could have been.
I think Superheroes as a genre is just waiting for someone to come along and reinvent it. We'll see how things pan out.
As always, drop any of your favorite links from the last week below. Whether it was something you found or something you wrote, we'd love to have it as part of our Link-up!
