There are superheroes everywhere. Every few months, a new movie is released featuring a new superhero or following up on the story of the ones we have already met. In fact, I think, for the coming decade at least, the schedule is pretty packed! But it’s not just the silver screen, our TV screens have been graced with the presence of all kinds of superheroes. There are just so many stories out there now that it seems an impossible task to catch up with all of them. It’s hard to keep track of so many things all at once. Netflix makes this task easier. It offers you a wide selection of movies and TV shows featuring the stories of superheroes. You can take your pick, spend two hours watching a film or dedicate the whole day to binge watch a show. The following is the list of the best superhero movies and shows that you can stream on Netflix:
19. Batman vs Superman (2016)
The title of this film was enough to bring all the comic book fans from all walks of life together in a theatre. Who wouldn’t want to watch the epic battle between the two most powerful superheroes, not only in DCEU but all the combined universes? All the filmmakers had to do was make sure that this film would be absolutely epic. Unfortunately, it failed to exceed expectations, barely meeting them. However, it wasn’t so bad a film. People just couldn’t get over how great Christopher Nolan’s Bat-verse was. Anyhow, ‘Batman vs Superman’ laid a foundation, even if a bit shaky, for DC’s universe, something that fans had been waiting for since a very long time.
18. The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)
Alright, this wasn’t the best time in the world of Spider-man. For that matter, this series shouldn’t even have happened. Especially considering that ‘Iron Man’, and a couple of other MCU stuff’ had come out by then. Sony should have given up the rights long ago. But then, we wouldn’t have had Tom Holland as the web-slinging teenager in the present form. Anyway, let bygones be bygones. Andrew Garfield did try his best. This film was a reboot to the origin story of Peter Parker and how he got bit by a spider. It was darker, had more backstory for the superhero and his family, introducing some new, interesting villains for Spider-man. Overall, it was a rather good film, and immensely successful at the box-office.
17. The Umbrella Academy (2019- present)
