Soaring through the skies,
He’s just another superhero.
Up and down he flies,
Keeping crime rates down to zero.

DIRECTV CINEMA™ is your go-to source for action-packed summer of superhero fun! Sit back with a tub of popcorn and watch how these mighty characters save the world.

Iron Man 2
With the world now aware of his superpowers, wealthy industrialist Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) works to make sure the energy of his powerful Iron Man suit doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. Ivan (Mickey Rourke), who has decided to put Tony in his place for betraying his father, starts building unique super weapons. Together with Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) and “Rhodey” Rhodes (Don Cheadle), Tony takes on his new enemy.

Kick Ass
Teenage comic book connoisseur Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson) has dreams of being a real-life superhero. But while the only thing he’s really good at is being invisible to the opposite sex, he sets out to make a name for himself. Our wannabe hero becomes “Kickass,” a vigilante of sorts who combs the streets of New York in search of people in distress. After he becomes an Internet sensation he teams up with other crime-stoppers with an affinity for spandex costumes. With Nicholas Cage and Chloe Moretz.

Superman Returns
Metropolis has gotten used to life without Superman (Brandon Routh), and Lois Lane (Kate Bosworth) has found the strength to move on. But when our hero returns after a long absence, Lex Luthor (Kevin Spacey) is eager to destroy him once and for all.
