Last Year's Superhero Movies Are Better Than This Year's. Here's Why.

This year's superhero movies? They kind of suck — well, in comparison to last year's kickass superhero movies. What gives?

According to Slacktory, last year's supherhero movies practically gave us a 10-step guide on how to be awesome! You'd think the success would be easily replicated. Really, this year's movies have no excuse.

Speaking seriously though: yeah, despite liking some of the movies highlighted here a lot, they can be pretty formulaic if not silly sometimes. But, hey. Popcorn flicks and all that.

How to make a superhero movie in 10 easy steps [Slacktory]


    On the Dark Knight Rises:

    Was it supposed to be the next day after he escapes from the hole? I never got why people complained about that scene but that's pretty egregious. I just figured people didn't consider that they had supplies in the prison

      I don't remember if the timing was mentioned in the movie specifically, but there was 3 months between the start of the uprising and the finale, I think he had at least a few weeks to get home. And he showed he was good at living off the grid at the beginning of the first movie so I don't think it's a big issue personally.

    Gawd, the new Spiderman was so drab and boring. All it needed was some personality to interrupt the self serious tween angst soap opera.

    2015 will likely be a bigger year in geek fandom. Batman vs Superman (give Affleck a go before you discredit him, the guy is good... lets just forget DareDevil, he has done a lot better since), The Avengers 2 and Star Wars Episode VII... 3 movies, but 3 god damn massive movies.

    Man of Steel itself has enough 9/11 imagery and terrible in it to bring the whole year down.
