Here it is, a collection of the very best superhero movies of the millennium. Whether they're from Marvel, DC, Darkhorse, or just the top of a daring director's head, the supernatural vigilantes in this list are sure to entertain.
Sick of morally pure cape crusaders or dark and brooding vigilantes? This collection features supernaturally gifted individuals who add an unexpected twist to the superhero formula. Don't think they're real superheroes? Why don't you say it to their face.
Inspired by the industrialized Western world of the 19th Century, these post 2000 films often feature alternate realities where steam-power was never supplanted by electricity. Fans of H.G. Wells, Conan Doyle, or Jules Verne will have plenty to pick from.
Forget perfectly coiffed softies like Superman and Captain American. These tortured superheroes have some pain behind their eyes. Their enemies have pain all over their face and bodies. Think Batman, Hellboy, and Ghost Rider.
Graphic novel action movies that retain the comic-book feel of their source material, including 'V for Vendetta', 'Sin City', and '300'. Make sure to check out Bruce Lee's son Brandon in cult classic 'The Crow', for a dark treat! Note: all mainstream superheroes excluded.
Adventures in the vein of 'John Carter'; 'Weird West' is a genre that combines sci-fi, fantasy, or just plain weirdness with elements of traditional westerns. So forget straight-laced John Wayne types and start expecting the inexplicable!
