Marvel comics fans rejoice!
X-Men (Dir. Bryan Singer, 2000): Born into a world filled with prejudice are children who possess extraordinary and dangerous powers - the result of unique genetic mutations. Cyclops unleashes bolts of energy from his eyes. Storm can manipulate the weather at will. Rogue absorbs the life force of anyone she touches. But, under the tutelage of Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart), these and other outcasts learn to harness their powers for the good of mankind. Now they must protect those who fear them as the nefarious Magneto (Ian McKellen), who believes humans and mutants can never co-exist, unveils his sinister plan for the future...
X-Men 2 (Dir. Bryan Singer, 2003): Mutants continue their struggle against a society that fears and distrusts them. Their cause becomes even more desperate following an incredible attack in The White House by an as yet undetermined assailant possessing extraordinary abilities. The shocking attack renews the political and public outcry for a Mutant Registration Act and an anti-mutant movement now led by William Stryker (Brian Cox), a wealthy former Army commander who is rumored to have experimented on mutants.
Stryker's mutant "work" is somehow tied to Logan's mysterious and forgotten past. As Wolverine searches for clues to his origin, Stryker puts into motion his anti-mutant program - launching an attack on Xavier's mansion. Magneto, newly escaped from his plastic prison, proposes a partnership with the X-Men to combat their common and formidable enemy: Stryker. With the fates of Xavier, mankind - and mutantkind - in their hands, the X-Men face their most dangerous mission ever!
Daredevil: Director's Cut (Dir. Mark Steven Johnson, 2003): When justice is blind, it knows no fear.
30 minutes of never before seen footage seamlessly edited back into the film, creating a whole new sub-plot featuring a brand new character!
Ben Affleck is Matt Murdock, a.k.a Daredevil. As a young boy he lost his sight in a chemical accident, which left him with his other senses superhumanly enhanced (and some incredible acrobatic skills). Flash forward and Matt is working by day as a pro bono lawyer (with partner Jon Favreau) and by night as a righteous avenger. The plot sees New York supercriminal Kingpin (Michael Clarke Duncan) calling on Irish assassin Bullseye (Colin Farrell) to take care of some business involving the father of Jennifer Garner's Elektra (with whom Matt falls head over heels in love). Daredevil is a shadowy comic book fantasy that provides plenty of fast-paced, high-kicking action.
Elektra (Dir. Rob Bowman, 2005): Looks can kill.
From the pages of Marvel Comics, creator of 'X-Men' and 'Spider-Man' comes 'Elektra'. In the ultimate battle between good and evil stands a warrior who makes the choice that tips the balance...
Elektra (Garner) is a strong, mysterious and sexy action heroine; a lethal synthesis of grace and power. Not long after recovering from seemingly mortal wounds, Elektra has severed all ties with the world, living only for her next assignment. But in an unexpected turn of events, she is forced to make a decision that can take her life in a new direction or destroy her...
