It is not new that superhero movies fascinate people of every age group starting from kids to even grownups with kids of their own. We all love to escape to the imaginary world. In this daily stressful life, we all hope a superhero would come and take away all our problems, sorrows and save the world from any sort of danger. The glorifying actions, the visual effects, sound effects overwhelm the audience to the highest level possible. It works like an escape- from reality.
Superhero movies make the impossible things look possible, their success makes us happy, we hold on to the little hope that world will be a better place to live again, the good things will conquer the evil. The superheroes go through trauma, they too get haunted by the past and they survive all of that. No matter how old we get, we will never be too old to hold on to a little ray of hope.
