2018 had a plethora of great movies, both in Hollywood and Bollywood. We had the pleasure to go through all the genres in this year. But what made this year truly great were the amazing superhero movies that came out one after the other. We would get over one and the very next moment we would be watching another superhero movie, which was equally great. So, for all the fans of superhero movies, 2018 must have been their favourite year, the one which they will remember for good.
So, let us take a roller coaster ride down the memory lane and check out which superhero movies made 2018 a rocking year:
Bhavesh Joshi Superhero – The Story Of Revenge
This film of Vikramaditya Motwane took a different style of presenting to us the superhero. There was no flying from one place to another, or no magical powers. The movie featured Harshvardhan Kapoor, Nishikant Kamat, and Priyanshu Painyuli. The movie is all about being the superhero of the middle class. Though it did not receive great acclaims at the box office, the movie had a gritty plot and the execution was also great.
2.0 – The Thalaiva Is Back To Rock
This great sequel to the 2010 movie, Robot, saw the coming together of the two legendary actors of Indian cinema, Rajnikanth and Akshay Kumar. What is more interesting about the movie is that, 2.0 had our very own Akki play the negative role. This was our first time that we saw Akshay in this hatke avatar. We see Chitti still engaged in his fight against the evil, and this movie made as much as 543 crores at the box office.
Deadpool 2 – Blend Of Action, Drama, And Comedy
This was another great superhero movie directed by David Leitch. It stars Josh Brolin, Zazie Beetz, and Julian Dennison. This was a sequel to the 2016 movie, and has made its great mark in Hollywood. The movie is power packed with some crazy action, and will have you glued to it till the end. You will not want Deadpool 2 to come to an end, such was its magnificence.
Venom – The Quick Moving Plot
This movie is true to its genre because of its fast moving plot. This Ruben Fleischer movie was released on 5 th October. Though the movie was slightly flawed in its execution, it can still be called one of the best superhero movies of 2018 because of the impeccably funny performance of Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock. The true fans of superhero movies were disappointed by Venom, however, it was Tom Hardy who kept Venom from drowning.
Avengers: Infinity War – The Much-Awaited Superhero Movie
Famously known as Avengers 3, this much awaited superhero film of 2018 was released on 4th May. This movie saw the dizzying war between the ignoble Thanos and Iron Man, Thor, and the Hulk. The movie, quite obviously, was a great hit, and did great at the box office as always.
So, both Bollywood and Hollywood have given us our favourite superheroes this year.
