One of the most famous genres of movies in Hollywood these days is superhero movies. When ace director Christopher Nolan adapted comic-series Batman, he proved comic-adaptations could perform like regular movies. Following this, Marvel Studios started a series of interconnected superhero films and changed the whole game.
