Why Sci-fi Based Superheros Can be Solid Films

9 July 2014 12:28 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The role of ComicBook films expands every year. They fill vast genres and pull off more than the simple "Person in tight spandex" aspect so many people give them credit for. Now these films have managed to center on mystery,  adventure, and even intergalactic threats. Sci-fi films as whole have existed for quite some time, and some films have even become iconic.
