Execelsior! It’s Kulture Shocked’s Comic-Book Movie Month!

Posted in The Screening Room by - May 03, 2015

Comic-book movies weren’t alway the insanely successful, multi-billion dollar property that they are today. Long before The Avengers and The Dark Knight, there was Mystery Men and The Rocketeer. While current lineup of comic book movies boast interconnected story arcs, grittier story-lines, or re-imagined versions of old favorites, the 80s and 90s, and even early 00s offered some interesting take on comic book movies. While some are forgotten in the onslaught of Marvel and DC’s ever-expanding cinematic universe building, these movies are awesome in their own rights, and some even rival the current comic book movies. Join us, won’t you?
