The origin story. The love interest. The final battle. They are the three staples of any superhero movie, and the latter in particular is of great importance, especially to fans who have spent years dreaming of seeing their favourite heroes and villains brought to life on the big screen.
Of course, as these movies continue to get bigger and better, they often feature more than just one battle, and that leaves us with a huge number of choices when it comes to selecting just ten of the very best.
10. Thor vs. Loki (Thor)
One of the most fascinating aspects of Kenneth Branagh’s Thor was how the movie delved into the relationship between the titular Thunder God and his half-brother, Loki. The chemistry between Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston proved to be so appealing that the rivalry between the two brothers was explored further in both Avengers Assemble and Thor: The Dark World.
In Thor however, the final battle is satisfying because of how well it was built up throughout the movie, and the emotional exchanges they share as they trade blows really helps make this one stand out. Hiddleston was superb in these scenes (as was the fact that the stakes were so high for Thor) made for an extremely satisfying and memorable fight scene in this particular superhero movie.
