Superhero is one of the genres that has been very popular throughout the world for the past decade, without exception in Indonesia. This can happen because since the 2010s, Marvel and DC have started to enliven Hollywood with their cinematic universe, namely the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe. At least until the end of 2022, the two giant franchises will soon release a number of their respective flagship films.
This year the MCU itself will soon release a movie Black Panther: Wakanda Forever on November 11th. Then Black Adam and Shazam! Fury of the Gods from DCEU will be released on October 21 and December 21, respectively. Interestingly, in addition to the three upcoming films, actually in August there are at least two ‘non-Marvel–DC’ superhero films that are quite promising for us to watch.
