Season of the Superhero

bat signalIt’s the season of the superhero! Lately, it seems as though all the biggest and best superhero movies hit theaters during the summer months. This summer was no different, with highly anticipated continuations and reboots (including The Avengers in May, The Amazing Spider-Man this week and The Dark Knight Rises just around the corner) opening with great fanfare and big ticket sales. 

I have always adored superhero movies. I love the costumes and the sweet romances, the big plots and the action sequences. Mostly, I love the battle between good and evil, where the hero prevails. Whether the hero of the hour wears a cape and flies, has mutant or alien abilities, or uses science and smarts to replicate super powers, they are always on the front line, saving the world from the dastardly villain.    

If your cape is at the dry cleaners and the Bat-Signal is dark, take the night off, browse the HCPL catalog and request a superhero movie today!
