Superhero movies were introduced around during the 30s where we saw the first flicks of a guy fighting villains in order to establish peace in the society. However, soon after the release of the first superhero film we saw an increase in the number of these films produced during that time. An interesting thing to note is that, in this course of time many comics made it to the big screen and different characters were casted in the movies based on the comics. These movies were greatly appreciated and readily accepted by comic enthusiasts and other fans and became trending. Batman, Superman and Spiderman are all just examples of this massive change in the film industry. However, their journey was not over yet and we could see different sequels of these movies. Besides, all this fame and popularity these movies have other relation with the American film industry and they owe a fair deal to the industry. These movies have bought huge amounts of revenues in the Box Office and the number of viewers can be seen multiplying.
If we look at the history of superhero movies, we can see that these movies have a long story, probably as old as the early as the 40s. The movies were basically derived from their comic book versions and they were quiet appreciated by the people. Superhero movies were a great source of enjoyment and leisure for people at that time.
