We could all use a hero…or two sometimes. Settle in for a night of crime-fighting adventure with some of our favorite superheroes.
Why It’s Perfect for Superhero Night: Much like an origin story, Spider-Man is about Peter Parker, a high schooler who lives in NYC and is bitten by a radioactive spider. He develops superhuman abilities and becomes your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. This classic superhero movie has a 90% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and is considered by fans to be one of the best superhero movies ever.
- Spider-Man 2
Why It’s Perfect for Superhero Night: In Spider-Man 2, Peter faces Doc Ock (aka Otto Octavius), which coincides with Spider-Man losing control of his powers and his life. It’s a heartwarming story about a kid who is trying to balance life while being a hero (aren’t we all?). This combination of a relatable main character, fun plot, and a likable villain is what makes this one of the best superhero movies ever and a great follow-up to Spider-Man.
Why It’s Perfect for Superhero Night: Venom stars Tom Hardy (a “walking work of art”, according to Buzzfeed) as an investigative journalist who becomes the host of an alien that gives him superpowers, and Michelle Williams as his eccentric she-Venom fiancée. The story revolves around Hardy’s enjoyment of his new-found superpowers, balanced against the enormous imminent danger of the alien species spreading through more hosts.
- X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Why It’s Perfect for Superhero Night: James Logan is not just a killing machine, a mutant, or a soldier, but very much human, which is contrasted well with Victor Creed’s (Sabretooth) pleasure in killing. Combined with the fight scenes, levity from Deadpool’s character, and stellar acting, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is a damn good way to spend 1 hour and 47 minutes.
- Spider-Man: Far From Home
Why It’s Perfect for Superhero Night: It follows Spider-Man (Tom Holland), as he teams up with former S.H.I.E.L.D. director, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), in order to fight the new creatures wreaking havoc, each made up of the elements: earth, air, fire, and water. A show-stopping addition to the Spider-Man series and a cast of new, young characters with some classics, we think you’ll be watching this movie on repeat.
