Although 2020 did not allow us to enjoy cinema too much, especially in the one that premiered in large viewing rooms, before house confinements were imposed, Birds of Prey managed to reach the big screens around the world, becoming one of the few superhero movies that have been released this year.
And although we do not know if the fact of having been seen in movie theaters has benefited him in any way, the truth is that the film directed by Cathy Yan and starring Margot Robbie, has become the Film based on a comic with best Rotten Tomatoes score of 2020.
The ranking, which has been established by making an average between the scores of the critics and the audience, is led by Birds of prey (and the fabulous emancipation of Harley Quinn), followed by The Old Guard, the Netflix film starring Charlize Theron, and Wonder Woman 1984 that closes the top 3, even though critical ratings didn’t get her a “fresh tomato.”
In the last positions of the top 5, we find the film produced by the Russo brothers and starring Chris Hemsworth, Tyler Rake, followed by The New Mutants, the battered X-Men film that finally premiered on Disney + and failed to win. neither the favor of the specialized critic nor the public.
But without a doubt, the most striking thing about this list is that for the first time in more than a decade, there is not a single film starring Marvel superheroes, and that is that last year Disney preferred to save his films for when they can be seen on the big screen.
