It is now officially the season now it's December and most people will be getting their or have got their trees decorated. Some families are traditional and have the same style, colours and ornaments each and every year, others like to have a different colour scheme each Christmas, buying a new set of decorations to match however some people are complete Superhero Geeks. 

These are the ones we love, I have found some epic trees to inspire and encourage any fans to be a little different and create a truly unique and personal tree which shows off their love of all things sci-fi.

RIP to David Prowse, these two are for you!

After Hugh Jackman poignantly bowed out in the excellent LOGAN movie, moves are afoot to cast the next Wolverine to appear in the Marvel universe, this time an actor who is somewhere near the right height.

At 6’3’ Jackman was a full foot taller than the original comic book mutant who first appeared in Incredible Hulk #187 as a member of Canadian super team Alpha Flight. The nicknames “short stuff” and “runt” couldn’t really be applied to the lanky, Aussie actor. As no known actor springs to mind it is likely to be a newcomer, rumours also abound that Wolverine will appear in the next Hulk movie, both share a raging temper and a healing factor which means they just keep coming.

The film may pay homage to the classic ULTIMATE VS HULK 6 issue mini series which saw the Hulk actually tear Wolverine in two, throwing the bottom half to the top of a mountain, so a PG rating would be unlikely.

Check out all the HULK and Wolverine memorabilia in our store.

These are my favourite out of all the X-Men movie scenes including scenes from the Wolverine and Deadpool solo movies. The X-Men movie franchise is one my favourite movie universes, obviously we love everything Marvel here at www.worldofsuperheroes.com.

5. Quicksilver's Slow-Mo Run
I loved how they took on the tricky 'Future past' storyline that is a fan favourite for comic readers since it's release in 1981. Actually In 2001, fans voted the first issue of this storyline the 25th greatest Marvel comic. So one of it's scenes had to be in my top five. My favourite scene from the movie has to be when Quicksilver runs around the prison kitchen in slow motion.

4. X-FORCE Sky Diving Deaths
By far the best scene in Deadpool's sequel is when Deadpool's X-FORCE team sky dive from a plane to AC/DC's legendary Thunderstruck and all tragically and hilariously lost their lives apart from Domino. 

3. First Appearance of Wolverine
I always remember the first time we see Logan way back in 2000 in 'X-Men' when Rogue see's Wolverine in a cage fight. That scene introduced Hugh Jackman to the X-Men Universe on screen and definitely helped launch the franchise.

2. WHERE'S FRANCIS?!?
Despite the crappy first appearance of Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, his solo movie didn't disappoint fans when it was released back in 2016. Ryan Reynolds finally got to play Wade Wilson as it was intended with gore, violence and a fudge load of laughs. I laughed so hard at the cinemas back on Valentines day 2016. The 12 Days of Deadpool over the Christmas period leading up to its release in February teasing the film is the best advertising ploy I've ever seen. My favourite scene does not include unicorns but a hilarious killing montage of the merc trying to find the man who tortured him, "Where's Francis?"

1. Death of Logan
Logan was the first time we got to see Wolverine allowed to unleash his powers in an R-Rated setting. The storyline was taken from one of Marvel's favourite comic series Old man Logan with the first issue released back in 2008. Although many points in the film hit me hard emotionally, the final scene where the un-killable Wolverine dies actually made me mourn as if losing a family member as it made me as a parent and a daughter connect with the characters fate and after watching him from his memorable first appearance through many different films, it made me feel very close to the character. This is why it's my favourite X-Men scene, I've never felt that high intense emotion at the cinema before or since and it's shows how perfect Hugh was to play Wolverine.

We have some epic X-MEN artwork and memorabilia to check out in our store.

As I have said before we love our top 5's and with increasing news coming from the 2022 'The Batman' movie, we thought we'd choose our top 5 Batman movies that have been on the big screen so far. 

5. Justice League 2017.
It’s no Avengers but the film made a good fist of Batman pulling the team together. It introduces a little humour into the DC movieverse and has some great set pieces but I didn’t understand why Cyborg is in there instead of a more established character like Green Lantern.

Best bit; The team trying to subdue Superman when he awakens, especially where his eyes follow the Flash.

4. Batman The Movie 1966.
Adapted from the camp and colourful TV series, this movie is simply a joy. Bright, brash and unashamedly entertaining, it had the greatest cast of villains thus far assembled and a classic score.

Best bit: “Hand me down the shark repellent Bat spray”.

3. Batman V Superman. Dawn of Justice 2016.
I realise I’m the only person on Earth who likes this film but I don’t care. I had waited for half a century to see the Dark Knight meet the Man of Steel on screen and I loved it. It introduced Afflecks older and wiser Batman, the fabulous Gil Gadot as Wonder Woman and set the stage for the Justice League. Stirring Stuff.

Best bit: “Do you bleed?”

 

2. Batman 1989.
The best ever portrayal of both Batman and Bruce Wayne by Michael Keaton and surely Jack Nicholson’s Joker is the greatest screen villain, full stop. Tim Burton's gothic take on Batman was dark yet playful and sits perfectly between the colourful 60s Adam West and the gritty 21st Century Christian Bale.

Best bit: “I’m Batman.”

1. Batman Returns 1992.
From the score to the set design, from the costumes to the dialogue, this is not just a great superhero film, it is a great film. Filled with stellar performance from Keaton, Devito, Pfieffer and Walken, it delivers on every level.

Best bit. “I am Catwoman. Hear me roar.”

 

We have some epic artwork and memorabilia to check out but be warned you will want these
