2013 is well underway, but we thought wed permit ourselves one final look at what has been a brilliant 12 months of cinema. It was of course a particularly successful year for comic book movies; The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises were easily the biggest films of the past year, bringing in a healthy box office return of $1.5 billion and $1.08 billion respectively.
The two aforementioned blockbuster behemoths werent the only entertaining superhero movies of 2012; both The Amazing Spider-Man and Dredd successfully embodied their comic book counterparts, and all these films were packed with some great moments that had many a fanboy or just me returning to our respective multiplexes for repeat viewings. From Hulk punching Thor, to Spider-Man battling the Lizard, and Batmans fights with Bane, weve compiled some of them into a short and sweet two minute montage.
With no fewer than four comic book movies heading our way this year in the form of Iron Man 3, The Wolverine, Thor: The Dark World, and of course Man of Steel, both anticipation and expectation are high for what looks set to be another great year for superhero fans. For now though, you can relive the magic of 2012 above.
