No bubble can last forever — it must eventually pop, as is the nature of bubbles. Marvel has built a vast media empire on the strength of such stars as Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, and Chris Hemsworth, but no actor would be content with playing and re-playing the same role forever. All good (and obscenely lucrative) things must come to an end, and Evans has begun the long and painful process of consciously uncoupling from Captain America’s star-spangled shield and cowl. But a new quote from the actor suggests that he may not be the first big name to make a departure from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
I'm a big comic book fan, and really love superhero movies. Since the turn of the millennium, it seems that every summer will have a superhero blockbuster. Or bomb. Remember Elektra? I'm not even sorry for making you remember that. I have compiled a list of the absolute best superhero movies released since 2000.
