The superhero genre has exploded, with comic book heroes conquering the big screen and making massive inroads on the small. Whether well known brand names like Batman and Spider-Man, or lesser recognized characters such as Daredevil and Hellboy, the superheroes are here to stay.
Superhero Confidential is the first in a series of books to go behind the scenes on the making of these filmed adventures. Volume I includes "Spider-Man: From Cannon to Cameron," which explores the numerous aborted attempts at bringing Spidey to movie screens in the '80s and '90s; the making of the two Hellboy films with director Guillermo del Toro and Ron Perlman; a comprehensive exploration of Ben Affleck's Daredevil; director Christopher Nolan and writer David S. Goyer chronicling the challenges of Batman Begins and much more.
From comic books to feature films, Superhero Confidential is your ultimate guide.
