10 Superhero Movies You've Probably Never Heard Of

Superhero movies weren't always cool.

Superman, Spider-Man, Batman, and Wonder Woman are household names, taking center stage in multiple movies that have grossed billions of dollars worldwide. They’ve made comic book movies the most profitable blockbusters on the planet. And they’ve paved the way for other, lesser known characters to cross over into the mainstream, from Doctor Strange and Deadpool to Aquaman and Captain Marvel.

But over the last four decades, there have been some brand new superheroes in cinemas as well, with names like Captain Avenger, Pumaman, and SuperBob--and with budgets that wouldn’t cover the catering on your average Marvel or DC movie.

Rather than being ripped from the pages of comics, they’ve been created specifically for the big screen, with many designed to spoof or satirize the genre. Yet while the majority of these movies have been made with good intentions, they’ve rarely hit the mark. Some have developed a cult following in the intervening years, and others disappeared into obscurity. Either way, these are 10 superhero movies you've probably never heard of.

New Gotham Poster Gives First Look At Batman

There are only two episodes left until the end of Gotham, and the show is going out on a high note. In the series finale, Batman will finally make his way to the beleaguered city, thanks to a 10-year time jump. Why wait until then to see the Dark Knight, though?

Fox and Warner Bros. TV have released the first look at Gotham's Batman via a promotional poster that shows the Caped Crusader from behind. Sadly, we can't see his face just yet. But finally seeing that cowl on Gotham is exciting. It also gives us an interesting look at the details of this particular Batman costume.

We can't wait to see the Bat in all his glory in the final episode of Gotham. Meanwhile, there's still one more installment before that happens. A description of the April 18 episode reads, "As Bane enacts his final plan for Gotham's destruction, Gordon rallies his former enemies to save the city. Meanwhile, Nyssa al Ghul kidnaps Barbara's newborn daughter with ambitions to raise her as her own. Then, Bruce's decision to leave Gotham points him to his destiny, while devastating Selina."

While series fans are eagerly anticipating Borderlands 3, those interested in playing some of the existing games will soon be treated to a better-looking experience. As part of its PAX East panel, Gearbox revealed that it's releasing improved texture packs for both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, and expanding Borderlands 2 VR.

Specifically, these ultra HD texture packs are coming to Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel on PC, and the Borderlands: The Handsome Collection (which consists of the two games) for PS4 Pro and Xbox One X.

There are some differences between how the texture packs work on consoles versus on PC. Console players get 4K and HDR support, along with remastered environment textures, characters, and vehicles, along with improved anti-aliasing and improved shadows. PC gets many of these same things, but there's no mention of HDR, though Screen Space Ambient Occlusion (SSAO) has been improved. The full lists for the respective platforms follows below.

Borderlands 3 Trailer Released, Confirming The Game At PAX East

about X hours ago from

Following countless teases and years of suggestions that it was in the works, Gearbox Software has officially confirmed Borderlands 3, as part of what it is calling The Year of Borderlands. The third mainline game in the series was revealed at the developer's PAX East panel. Although the reveal was plagued by technical issues, we did ultimately see the debut Borderlands 3 trailer, which you can watch above. We did not, however, get a release date, although more details are coming on April 3.

The trailer begins with a shot of the iconic Psycho mask and pans up to reveal that the wasteland is as desolate and full of mayhem as when we last saw it. A Children of the Vault camp is one of the first things we see and next to the entrance there are signs referring to Calypso. One message reads, "Answer Calypso's call," while another invites people to "Meet Calypso." This enigmatic figure is introduced in the very next scene and from her wry grin, overconfident swagger, and snarling sidekick, it's a pretty safe bet to say she'll be one of the key villains of Borderlands 3. For those that know their greek mythology, Calypso is the daughter of the titan, Atlas. It just so happens that Atlas is also the name of one of the big corporate entities on Pandora, where the Borderland games primarily take place.

about X hours ago from

During Gearbox's PAX East keynote presentation, the company revealed Bulletstorm: Duke of Switch Edition, a Switch port of Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition that also includes the Duke Nukem DLC. This way, you can play the game with original protagonist Grayson Hunt or the titular protagonist of the Duke Nukem franchise.

Releasing in 2011, Bulletstorm is a first-person shooter that focuses on rewarding players for killing enemies in the most creative way possible. A remaster for Xbox One, PS4, and PC, titled Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition, released in April 2017, adding the option of playing as Duke Nukem--who fits in perfectly with the game's rather crass humor. The Switch port is scheduled for Summer 2019.
