Superhero movies are a great escape route from realism and, needless to say, that we love it. And with the end of each year, we love to anticipate seeing our comic book heroes on the big screen. Most people get flattered with the supernatural powers that our heroes possess and think that’s what makes them great. But in reality, the courage and the sacrificial behavior is what sets us apart from our superheroes. Also, with the rise of superhero movies, the concept of Computer Generated Imagery (CGI) has developed drastically. All those epic fight scenes, backgrounds, costumes, and high-tech weapons that we witness are mostly a result of CGI. However, here we will discuss the most anticipated superhero movies in 2020.
