Just Comics? No, It’s a Movie.
Why People Love Marvel Comics Heroes.
  Spiderman, Hulk, The Fantastic 4, Ironman, Thor: God of Thunder, X-Men – First Class and The First Avenger: Captain America. Do you know what these movies all have in common? The origins of these movies are all    from Marvel Comics that have been turned into a successful motion pictures series.
What Is Marvel Comics
  Now the next question is what is ‘Marvel comics’? Most of us have all heard of these movies before and Marvel Comics is the brand that    created them. Marvel comics is a well-known American comic book publisher that is famous for comics such as Captain America, X-Men, The Fantastic 4, Hulk, Thor, Ironman, Dr. Strange, Blade, Punisher, Dare Devil, Iron Fist and Ghost Rider.

Interesting Features of Marvel Comics Movies
  There is an interesting common feature in all the movies that I have mentioned, and that is the unexpected guest star appearance of Stan Lee. Stan Lee is the creator and founder of Marvel Comics and is known to be the father of Marvel Comics throughout the comic world. He is currently the chairman and producer of the Marvel movies. When you first watch the movies you probably don’t notice him at first, but try watching it again, and this time pay close attention. I think these types of cameos are very interesting and a clever move by Stan Lee. 
<X-men, 2000>
<DareDevil, 2003>
<Spiderman, 2004>
<Fantastic 4, 2005>
<X-men : The Last Stand, 2006>
<Spiderman3, 2007>
<Ironman, 2008>
<Incredible Hulk, 2008>
There Are Always Hints of a New Series at the End of Each Movie?!
  You should always watch the movies until the credits are all over because sometimes there are teasers of the next series once the credits are done showing. These hints can sometimes be an important key to expecting a new series. Let’s take a look at some of the teasers shown at the end of the credits.
* Spoiler Alert! Do not read if you haven’t seen the following movies!
<X-Men – The last stand>
  At the end of the movie Magneto has become human, losing all his mutant powers after being injected with a serum by Beast. However, as he was sitting in a park by himself, he was able to move a pawn made of steel         from a chessboard. This tells the audience that Magneto’s powers are not completely vanished and it might be giving us a hint at something in the near future.
  Also after the credits are over, they show Professor Xavier, who died earlier in the movie, in a hospital bed. During the movie, Professor X taught his students that it is possible for someone to transfer their high-quality brain to another human who is in a vegetative condition. In the hospital bed, someone has apparently woken up, and the doctor saw the man and called him ‘Charles!’ So you see, Magneto didn’t lose his powers, and apparently Professor Xavier didn’t die since he did a mental transplant. This tells the fans of X-Men that the battle is not over, and it could very well continue on into a new series. 
<The Incredible Hulk>
  Bruce Banner, who is the main character in the movie, has maintained stable for 31 days by the end of the movie. And as he was sitting down a caption was shown saying ‘Non-   change 0 days’ with his eyes turning green. This shows the audience that Hulk now knows how to control his    change and maintain his thoughts. This could suggest that a second film might be coming out as well. 
  Nick Fury, who is the director of ‘SHIELD’, is found in Tony Stark’s house and tells Tony that he has come to him to talk about the Avengers’ The Avengers is a comic series    where a lot of super heroes are together on a team for the first time. So this was just a minor hint that the Avengers’ movie is in production.  
<Ironman 2>
  In this film the hint is related to the movie < Thor: God of Thunder> because they mention Thor’s weapon the ‘Mjolnir’ The weapon was found in New Mexico when a mystery man called someone and said “Sir, I found it.” 
Why Do We Love Marvel Comics Heroes?
  To    change the question into a more fundamental one, why do we like heroes? I think it is because of the fact that we humans are    limited and sometimes frustrated when we realize our    limits in our world. But a hero on the other hand always finds a way to overcome these hardships, which makes the audience admire and envy them at the same time. Even though comparing a movie to a real life experience may seem dull, people admire these films because they are able to find hope.
 Another reason why people enjoy Marvel Comics Heroes is because of the action scenes. In Spiderman, you can see a lot of acrobatic action, and in Thor you can witness raw power. In Ironman we can watch miracles happen with the technology of man, and in X-Men we can see all sorts of different powers all put into one movie. I think these various action scenes and powers are what overwhelms the audience and draws them into Marvel Comics.
Next Upcoming Movies    from Marvel Comics
  Would you believe it if someone told you that all of your favorite Marvel Comics heroes can team up together to fight other villains? Well you better believe it now because coming next year a movie with all your favorite Marvel Heroes will be released. The movie is called ‘The Avengers’, and the main characters will be: Ironman, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Nick Fury and Captain America.    
  Unfortunately, Spiderman will not be in the movie due to copyright complications, but the movie will still be action packed. People are looking forward to the movie because they are curious to see how the filmmakers are going to set up the distinct and interesting relationships among the heroes. The movie is planned to be released next spring so mark your calendars.
