From spandex-draped superheroes to leather-clad mutants, from Caped Crusaders to film noir assassins, the comic-book movie comes in all shapes, sizes and (intergalactic) species. In the first part of a two-month season, we celebrate a genre too often unfairly dismissed as mindless entertainment.
Screenings take place at BFI Southbank (NFT1, NFT2, NFT2, Studio) and BFI IMAX.
Includes The Dark Knight: The IMAX Experience from 24 July - see the most hotly anticipated film of the summer on the biggest screen in Britain!
