Why The World Needs Superhero Movies

There is a lot of shade being thrown at superhero movies at the moment. It’s disheartening. Fanboy culture has been under relentless attack since last comic con when Deadline published this inflammatory article. It seems like every week there is some anti-superhero movie article that pops up somewhere that either throws shade at the movies or the companies behind them.

Not cool.

Not having it.

I’m here to tell you folks, pardon my language, it’s bullshit.

I was in the middle of writing an ‘anti-superhero article’ editorial and struggling with it a bit because of course I am biased. I mean, after all I just launched a new outlet that covers these movies. Then a video made by a young talented filmmaker named Zachary Frost caught my attention and touched my heart. Not going to lie, it even made my eyes well up a bit.

It completely nails on the head why these movies absolutely matter. Instead of an editorial, I present this video in the hopes we can spread the positive message about these movies.

If there is only one article you share today, I ask that you share this one with everyone you know that loves superhero movies.

Check out the video and please comment below.


Pretty touching video correct? Zachary is so talented that I asked him to create the Heroic Hollywood launch trailer and he nailed it out of the park as well. Check it out.


Thanks Zack! I’m going to be keeping a close eye on you.
