Avengers has made the greatest opening ever in cinema history. In five days, it has gained $1.2 billion and exceeded the prior table.
The film is a logical climax of a long-lasting, intergalactic storyline, epic personalities, and superstars that have synonymous with the people they have performed so much that there are no post-credit scenes that spark interesting fan ideas on the next film. That’s it. In combination with the mental blows of the Avengers: Infinity War, in which half of the living things of the universe — including many great heroes — became dust.
When we speak about superhero films that have influenced the crowd indelibly, only a few come to mind.
The Avengers by Marvel Studios is an epic battle with all of the powerful infinity stones, inter-galactic wars, wormholes, alien invasions, gods and men who fight for the survival of the Marvel universe. The Dark Knight (2008) from DC Comics is the other end of the range in which real people — Batman and Joker — clog it out without superpowers in the earthly town of Gotham.
There can be no stronger contrast between the treatments, characters, stories, and contexts in the two films. One reason why the two movies linked to the public and what makes it awesome is the presence of supervillains, who all had more layered personalities and motivations than simply conquering the universe.
The driving force behind Josh Brolin’s Thanos is his belief that the universe is overcrowded for the resources it needs. The sole practical alternative he can think of is to collect the six all-powerful Infinity stones into the gag and just snap his fingers to murder half of all the living creatures impartially. Easy and efficient. He does not want to become the universe’s overlord, as the modest life that he leads as a farmer after he has cut half the world is obvious. He does this to prevent the world from imploding— such a noble thought.
At first, he begins serially, one planet after the other — killing 50% of his people, taking up his adopted daughter, Gamora. But it is so slow and time-consuming that all living humans produce— the original ones may have repopulated themselves by the time he reached the last planet.
He plans to gather all the infinity stones and then accomplish his goal in a snap to prevent getting stuck in a violent cycle. When he does this, he even destroys the stones of infinity that made him unbeatable so he couldn’t undo his deeds. Do we remember any other hero or villain who gave up this great power or transmitted it or destroyed it? He knew he might kill him (which he almost did), but he still does so anyway, just to become a so simple, powerless being that he almost feels comical when he beheaded Thor.
And then we got the Dark Knight Joker. It was released in several respects 11 years ago. Although opposite to Avengers in therapy, Batman protects the town of Gotham and intends to destroy Joker. However, he is not a villain who wants to agonize the system with a bomb-loaded bus blowing a hospital. Indeed, Joker is the real agent of chaos, unlike Thanos, for no greater purpose. He only intends to break the status quo, boost system entropy and generate chaos. Portrayed by Heath Ledger who received an Oscar posthumously, it was a portrait of a villain once-in-a-lifetime. Joker did not have any unique powers, nor did Batman, so we’ve got the same game.
Joker revels in other people’s misery. He wants to break morally oriented individuals. Given the correct quantity of impulse, which is generally not much, he intends to demonstrate that most of the parties change too readily. However, Batman requires much more to behave against his principle, which is why Batman expects Joker to kill him, only to demonstrate that even he, of all men, can turn around. Batman and Joker are worthy adversaries.
Joker is a rabid dog who is running behind cars, but when they stop they don’t know what to do. He even refused to murder Batman when he could, unlike every villain. Because in life he would not lose intent.
These superheroic films are not the superpowers, the CGI, and the storyline. Survivors like Joker and Thanos— the crazy titan king — are driving the films on. They assist the crowd to take sides and create superheroes who they really are by pulling them from the comfort and only dropping them so that they can get up again.
