Having detested superheroes for being these fancy people who seemed far off from the regular folks we see every day, with crazy superpowers and unimaginable strength, I have never cared enough to watch these movies or read the comics! To me, like a lot of other people, they happen to be Batman and Superman!
But then, these superheroes go beyond protecting the world too much more! They inspire us to bring out the best and contribute our part for melioration.
As a kid who has never had much of an attraction toward superheroes of any sort, I can’t help but laugh at the irony behind me being excited about the upcoming movie!
1. THE DARK KNIGHT:
BATMAN! The silent guardian, the watchful protector, The Dark Knight. Breaking the stereotypical description of a superhero in every sense, The Dark Knight Trilogy hasn’t failed to impress the masses.
When someone with no inherent powers but just a multitude of resources and strong willpower aspires to save the city that brought him into living, motivated by what he fears the most, he does occupy a considerable space in all our hearts! Also, thanks to Christopher Nolan, Christian Bale, and those thought-provoking dialogues. As Alfred puts it, He endures! When he does fall, he learns and picks himself up. He makes the choice that no one else can make, the right choice.
As the movie says, it’s not who he is underneath, but what he does defines him. The heart-melting compassion, the sturdy willpower, the impressive freak, the deceptive theatrics, and the challenging rebel that he is, is what makes him! Amid tons of people who want to watch the world burn, he strives, fights, and endeavors hard to make the world a better place.
2. THE MAN OF STEEL:
After my initial exposure to Batman, my interest in superheroes expanded. Frankly, after Batman, none of the others kept up to my expectations as they all had these inherent superpowers.
But then, who doesn’t love Superman? Being the last son of Krypton, Superman has come down to the Earth to save the dying planet. Nicknamed The Big Blue Boy Scout, he has played an important social and cultural role.
Often being paralleled with Biblical stories, Superman was born before any of us readers were even born. They will continue to enlighten, motivate and inspire us, the commons, for ages! Superman will remain a symbol of hope, strength, and modern certainty!
Those moments of relief once Superman insinuates the crime scene are unforgettable! Superheroes like these do not just impress us for the media’s sake but remind us that the world needs the help of every individual for betterment.
3. THE DAWN OF JUSTICE (Superman VS Batman):
With the hysteria of the Superman VS Batman movie on the rise, expectations continue to grow.
What excites me the most is that these superheroes are to appear together on the large screen. The two largest, geekiest, nerdiest fandoms are to merge. As the two greatest heroes of our generation combat each other, unite towards their common goal, fight injustice together and bring the dawn of justice to the world. The movie is expected to gain enormous applause.
As they battle each other, the best and the worst in each of them will come out. As the cities that nurtured them and brought them up are to be burnt down to ashes, will these heroes let go of their conflicts and save the world?
The buzz it has created has been boundless since its announcement at the San Diego Comic-Con. Is it going to be Gotham and Metropolis or Gotham v Metropolis? We will have to wait to know!
Making a cinematic history, Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder have gotten us all to expect heights out of the film as two of the most iconic and cinematically successful heroes are to be brought together. With a fantastic crew, the prospects of a great movie are bright. Fingers crossed for it to meet all expectations.
Together, let us wait for justice to dawn!
