Top 3 Right Now: Superhero Movie Edition

What is the best Superhero film you’ve ever seen? We’ve seen an explosion of superhero movies being made in the past 10 years, so there are certainly a lot to choose from!

Marta – the Teen Librarian at our Marysville community library – has been kind enough to give us her top 3 right now (though she notes she’s pretty excited to see Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther in the coming months).  So, Marta, what are your top 3 Superhero Movies and why?

Wonder Woman: It felt like I waited my entire life for this movie. I saw it twice at the theater and would go again. Sno-Isle Libraries has over 90 of the DVDs on order. The DVD will definitely be worth the wait. Meanwhile, gear up for the Amazon princess by streaming the Wonder Woman: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (composer Rupert Gregson-Williams) using the library’s Hoopla service. Cue up Track 8, “Wonder Woman’s Wrath” first and you’ll be ready to take on No Man’s Land all yourself, even if you don’t have a magic lasso.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Get “Hooked on a Feeling” watching the movie that seriously doesn’t take itself too seriously. While the fate of 12 billion people lies in the hands of criminals, look for all the ways the filmmakers poke fun at the superhero movie tropes, especially during the power walk when Gamora pops her jaw and Rocket is his uncouth but lovable self. You can stream the awesome mixtapes that make up the soundtracks for Guardians of the Galaxy and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 at the library’s Hoopla service. You could also make your own awesome mix using the library’s Freegal service, where you can legally download 3 MP3 files every week.

Captain America: The First Avenger This movie has everything a more-traditional superhero movie has: An origin story steeped in mad science, Nazis, Red Skull and Hydra vs. Cap, Bucky and the indomitable Agent Carter. The action scenes will keep you on the edge of your seat, Chris Evans brings heart and kindness to the role, and the special effects with Cap’s vibranium shield are tons of fun to watch.”

What do you think, readers? Does your Top 3 list look like Marta’s at all?
