Movies in the vein of 'Jumper' or 'Limitless': where normal people are granted supernatural abilities, only to learn the wisdom of Uncle Ben's adage 'with great power comes great responsibility'. Mainstream superhero movies excluded in favor of more realistic, and often grittier, narratives.
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.
Ever wondered what $160 million could buy you? Only the very cheapest of these films, for starters. If you like eye-popping CGI, star-studded casts, and characters that are just begging to be made into action figures, then check out this collection of the biggest sci-fi blockbusters Hollywood has to offer.
