There are a couple of different types of super hero movies -
The Marvel style - which are fast, funny and extremely popular
The DC style - which are fast, not as funny and a less popular
and the Christopher Nolan style - dark, realistic and (in my opinion) the most watchable
The new "Joker" movie - coming in October is the Nolan style. Directed by Todd Phillips and starring Joaquin Phoenix - it feels perfect for people who are more "Dark Knight" than "Avengers"
