  • The quality of CGI is better than ever. Hulk for example, looks super realistic. Also the quality of actors and writing in these movies is better than ever.

  • They've always been popular. Since year fucking 1. People naturally are attracted to hero characters. I mean the "superhero" Thor is literally a god from Norse mythology. Jesus too, they all just capture our interest, its innate in us to be curious of who the best is.

    Type "jordan peterson hero" on youtube. He basically says it has to do with the importance of dominance and how those who can move up it are most sought after, and when people talk about what those people are like, that's where you get heroes.

  • I believe it's mostly because of the great actors who portray them. Robert Downey Jr, Hugh Jackman and so on. They make the movies fun.

    Also, I'm a big fan of comic books and I'm glad we finally have the chance to see our favorite stories and characters in movies.

  • Plots are entertaining and action is great.
    Like with Captain America movies? All were good plots and great action. Worth the price of admission.

  • Because the characters were already famous and the storyline were already expected to be good even before people watch it

  • We have always loved hero’s that took on the bad guys. On black and white tv there were westerns like Roy Rogers and Hopalong Cassidy. Sci-Fi had Flash Gordon, Jet Jackson and countless others. Before tv there was Sherlock Holmes and Robin Hood. Early civilizations had their mythology. As long as man has been around and has suffered injustice, he has invented heroes that save the downtrodden.

  • Simply coz they are a part of the American culture or American society... It's so logically that after all this years of comics books and animations, movies become successful! They hv a kind of preparation of public minds and psychology...

  • Ever since we were kids we all fantasized. Now with special effects and better scripts, we get to see a version of our fantasies "come to life" on the big screen, that is. It's something a great deal of us can relate to.

  • why shouldn't they? its kinda like the same reason why comics were sucessful and popular: the fantasy it brings up to whoever is the audience/reader.
