The Best 10 Unknown Superhero Movies of all time

Unknown Superhero Movies

There are always some peoples who fade in the limelight of others, and the same applies to our beloved unknown superhero movies. When anyone says who’s your favorite superhero, your answer will be surely someone like Captain America, Iron Man, Spiderman, Deadpool, Hulk, Superman, Batman, etc. But there are some who are lesser-known to the world of superheroes.

It’s not that they don’t have enough storyline or action scenes but due to some unknown reasons, these superheroes didn’t get the attention of peoples for long. Just about 20 years in the past people laugh thinking about superhero movies as an industry, this was proven by 1997’s Batman and Robin, this movie was so mocked that George Clooney spent 20 years apologizing for the same.

But in August 1998 Wesley Snipes Blade was released and it changed the way people look at the superhero industry and superheroes themselves, peoples loved this movie at it earned around $131 Million worldwide.

  • They should be action-packed.
  • The storyline should not be too bad.
  • VFX should be good, enough to be able to call it a superhero movie.
  • I will not go too much back in time, because, in my opinion, they don’t have good visual effects.
