Cinema has always created worlds that are hard to imagine for an ordinary person, worlds where there is a blurry line between reality and fantasy and where larger-than-life characters exist. The world of superheroes teaches the audience different moral values and mostly follows the storyline as ‘triumph of good over evil’.
