Comic book movies are by no means a new medium. In 1951 we saw George Reeves hitting the silver screen as the man of steel in Superman's first movie appearance, and then Adam West in 1966 as Batman, with many more to follow suit. But with DC and Marvel set to release just under 30 movies between them by 2020 they are more popular than ever and with superb advances throughout cinematography it takes more than a quick costume change and invisible wire to impress an audience these days. With cinemas offering 3D, IMAX and even 4DX experiences studios are having to up their game, and in most cases they are not disappointing.
