News culture It’s one of the best Marvel movies, but people seem to have forgotten about it. It’s available now on Disney Plus
What do you think are the best Marvel movies? On the sidelines of Black Panther, Spider-Man and the Avengers, we must not forget the animated feature films which are sometimes really worth it.
Since its launch in 2008 with the first Iron-Man, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has seen green and unripe ones. We are also talking about major critical and commercial successes, including Black Panther et Avengers Endgame (respectively 96%, 94% on Rotten Tomatoes) only films that did not convince: Eternalsin 2021, and more recently Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
In any case, it should be borne in mind that the Marvel universe is not limited to cinema projects… In addition to many series on Disney + (Moon Knight ; Loki ; She-Hulk), the company that guarantees superheroes has also offered us animated feature films, such as Planet Hulk and of Doctor Strange. But, in the middle of all that, there is above all a 3D film: Big Hero 6 (Les Nouveaux Héros, in France), the first of its kind to use Marvel superheroes since it was bought by Mickey’s dad in 2009. Want to see it? That’s good, it just arrived on Disney +.
“All the ingredients of a great film”
If we’re talking about it today, it’s because our colleagues from 3DGames announced the arrival of Big Hero 6 on the Disney streaming platform! It is therefore an animated film released in 2014 and inspired by the comics of the same name… For 1h40, we follow the adventures of Hiro, a little genius of science, living in the fictional town of San Fransokyo. But, one day, his older brother is going to have an accident. Baymax – a big white robot created by him – will then be one of the most important supports. Thus begins a touching and action-packed adventure (because yes, there is a big villain).
Landing a 90% of the press, a 91% of the viewers on Rotten Tomatoes, The New Heroes is one of the highest rated Marvel movies. “Pleasantly entertaining and brilliantly animated, it’s fast-paced, action-packed and often touching entertainment” writes the famous site – in the “critic consensus” section… For its part, 3DJuegos notes a work that has “all the ingredients of a great feature film”, in particular thanks to the relationship between Hiro and Baymax, touching and really funny.
