This monsoon it has been raining superheroes. The trend started earlier in May with the extremely popular The Avengers, which was followed by Men in Black 3. The new Spider-Man film with young Andrew Garfield doing an ‘amazing’ job as our friendly neighbourhood Spidey is a great hit and The Dark Knight Rises promises to give all Batman fans their money’s worth. Sequels, and that too superhero sequels, seem to be the new Hollywood recipe for success. If you see the menu set for 2013, we have The Wolverine, Iron Man 3, Man of Steel, Hancock 2 and The Flash — all being prepared to be served to us hungry audience.
