5 Most Shocking Superhero Surprises of 2022

In 2022, superhero films and TV series were as common as ever, but for the first time in a long time, they weren’t the only ones. Box office winners were “Top Gun: Maverick,” “Avatar: The Way of Water,” and “Jurassic World: Dominion,” while the streaming scene was dominated by “Stranger Things,” “Wednesday,” “House of the Dragon,” and “Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.”

For a genre that has seemed almost untouchable for the better part of a decade, it is a surprise all by itself, and it wasn’t the only one. The drama in 2022 was brought on by superheroes, both on and off screen. The 5 most shocking superhero surprises of 2022 events of the year are listed below.

1- Kevin Bacon and Star-Lord Interact in “The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special”

The greatest meta-twist yet for the Marvel Cinematic Universe—and yes, the teaser kind of gave it away—was sending real-life actor Kevin Bacon across the galaxy as a Christmas present for a depressed Peter Quill (Chris Pratt). (For example, in 2011’s “X-Men: First Class,” which is sort of a part of the larger MCU multiverse, Bacon as the villain Sebastian Shaw. It’s mind-boggling!

2- In “Moon Knight,” Marc Spector Awakens in a psychiatric Hospital:

The fundamental plot device of “Moon Knight” is Marc Spector’s (Oscar Isaac) dissociative identity disorder, which he uses to compartmentalise both his pain and his responsibility as Khonshu, the avatar of the Egyptian good. But it still comes as a destabilising shock to learn at the end of Episode 4 that everything we’ve seen on the programme up to that point may truly be a delusion from Marc’s stint in a mental institution. Even while it isn’t the most novel twist—Shutter Island, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and “St. Elsewhere” come to mind—it is nonetheless incredibly powerful.

3-  In “Black Adam,” Dwayne Johnson makes his acting debut:

Teth Adam, played by Dwayne Johnson in “Black Adam,” is shown as the heroic alter ego of a young kid from the prehistoric Kahndaq civilisation. Teth Adam, however, reveals later in the movie that he is the child’s real father. When we see in a flashback that Teth Adam’s mortal adult body is still in svelte, rugged condition, but not The Rock jacked, it turns a decent twist into a terrific one. It’s a fantastic meta-joke that has its punchline in the closing credits when Benjamin Patterson, the actor who played Teth Adam in his mortal body, is referred to as “Skinny Teth Adam.” Skinny, skinny.

4- In “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law,” She-Hulk encounters K.E.V.I.N:

The first of several fourth-wall-breaking moments in “She- Hulk’s” nine episodes begins with Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) speaking to the camera and revealing that she is the star of a Marvel Studios legal comedy. However, it was nonetheless startling when she made the decision to break the fourth wall in the season finale, flying through our Disney+ home screens to criticise the show’s creators for coming up with such a tired conclusion.

She turns to K.E.V.I.N., an artificial intelligence-controlled robot that stands in for Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, out of exasperation. Jennifer informs K.E.V.I.N. that “It’s generally believed that Marvel movies always end the same way,” to which K.E.V.I.N. cautiously responds, “Wait, who’s saying that?” — a delightfully self-aware show’s ideal self-aware finale.

5- In “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” Queen Ramonda passes away:

The untimely death of “Black Panther 2” actor Chadwick Boseman, which was depicted on screen as the off-screen death of his character King T’Challa, was already a problem. The third act of the movie is then introduced by having Namor (Tenoch Huerta Mejia), the antagonist, assassinate Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), T’Challa’s adored mother, in front of everyone who loved her most, including her daughter Shuri (Letitia Wright). The death of the Queen of Wakanda was the biggest surprise in the film; others were the appearance of T’Challa’s kid and Killmonger’s (Michael B. Jordan) reappearance.
