Batman: Year One (2011) — Max
Batman: Year One gives us an opportunity to witness the early days of our favorite brooding superhero, Batman. With top-notch animation and absolutely gripping storyline, this movie is a peek into Bruce Wayne's personal diary, witnessing his transformation into the Dark Knight.
What’s particularly great about the movie is how it stays true to the comics, giving us that gritty, down-and-dirty feel of Gotham City. The movie takes us through his early challenges and victories, which makes it a must-see for any Batman fan out there.
Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United (2013) — Disney Plus
This animated feature is a blast, especially if you're into the whole “opposites attract” buddy dynamic. The tech-savvy Iron Man teams up with the raw power of the Hulk. The animation style is unique, blending 3D elements with traditional 2D, which gives it a cool, modern edge.
The story is packed with action, humor, and, of course, that classic Marvel charm. Definitely a fun ride for those who love seeing unlikely heroes team up.
Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox (2013) — Max
Back to DC with Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox. If you thought you knew the Justice League, this movie will make you think again. It centers around Flash, and let's just say things get wild.
Flash accidentally alters the timeline, and the world gets turned upside down — we're talking a completely different reality. The coolest part is seeing different versions of our beloved heroes and villains. It's like a “what if” scenario taken to the extreme.
Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors (2018) — Disney Plus
This movie is about a diverse group of young heroes stepping up to save the day. We're talking Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, Quake, and more. It's not just about flashy powers and epic battles (though it has plenty of that too). It's about teamwork, overcoming doubts, and embracing your true self.
The animation is vibrant, and the story is super empowering, especially for the younger crowd. It's a feel-good movie that packs a powerful punch.
Son of Batman (2014) — Max
Son of Batman is a real treat for Batman fans. It introduces us to Damian Wayne, Batman's son, who's as fierce and stubborn as you'd expect from the offspring of the Dark Knight. The dynamic between the ever-serious Batman and his headstrong son gives a fresh twist to the Batman saga.
The animation style is classic DC — sleek and dark. Definitely a must-watch for those who like their superhero stories with a bit more depth.
Big Hero 6 (2014) — Disney Plus
Yes, Big Hero 6 is loosely based on Marvel comics. The movie is set in the futuristic city of San Fransokyo and follows young genius Hiro Hamada and his adorable inflatable robot, Baymax.
It's perfect for both kids and adults, filled with humor, heart, and some cool tech. Big Hero 6 isn't just entertaining; it's a movie that'll leave you with a warm, fuzzy feeling inside.
Batman vs. Robin (2015) — Max
This movie takes the complex relationship between Batman and his son Damian (aka Robin) to a whole new level. It's not just a story about fighting bad guys; it's a deep dive into trust, control, and the clash between Batman's strict code and Robin's more impulsive nature.
The animation is sharp and dark, fitting the intense mood of the story perfectly. It's action-packed, emotionally charged, and full of twists.
Iron Man & Captain America: Heroes United (2013) — Disney Plus
If you thought Iron Man and Hulk made a great team, wait until you see Iron Man teaming up with Captain America. The chemistry between these two iconic characters is just fantastic, — Iron Man with his high-tech solutions and Cap with his old-school heroics.
The storyline is a fun mix of action, humor, and classic Marvel teamwork. Again, you’ll enjoy it if you love seeing your favorite heroes team up to save the day.
Justice League Dark: Apokolips War (2020) — Max
This movie is a game-changer. It's one of the most intense, dark, and action-packed entries in the DC animated universe. The stakes are incredibly high, with the fate of the entire planet hanging in the balance.
It features not just the Justice League, but also the Justice League Dark team. It's a gripping watch that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Hulk: Where Monsters Dwell (2016) — Disney Plus
