Everyone loves Marvel and DC. These are the films when we think about any superhero film. The Iron man, Spiderman, Batman, and every other super-cool superhero. However, there are other superheroes apart from these franchises.
Below are some non-Marvel/DC superhero films.
1. Hancock (2008)
Director- Peter Berg
Because of his drinking and carelessness, the mighty superhero John Hancock has become a laughingstock. He’s also the most despised man in Los Angeles. Though he has saved countless lives, he has also destroyed a great deal of property. Along with costing the city millions of dollars each time he is deployed. When he saves PR expert Ray Embrey from an oncoming train, the executive is grateful. He feels he can help Hancock regain his reputation as a true superhero. He invites the anti-hero to dinner and introduces him to his son Aaron, who is a huge fan, as well as his wife Mary. Mary, on the other hand, does not want Hancock near her or her family for some inexplicable reason.
2. Chronicle (2012)

Andrew Detmer, an unhappy adolescent, and outcast at his high school have an excellent reason to harbor long-term bitterness and contempt toward the world—powerful feelings that arise from years of maltreatment and the fact that his ailing mother is dying. When his cousin Matt and their popular classmate Steve stumble into a mysterious hole in the forest floor, their surprising discovery will change their lives forever, as an unimaginable and indestructible force imbues their young bodies. However, what began as a harmless game between friends will soon spin out of control—and Andrew’s floating camera will continue to film until one of them gets consumed by this double-edged extraterrestrial gift.

Soon after, Dunn’s polar opposite, Elijah Price, a brittle-boned comic-book art dealer, approaches the tragedy’s sole survivor, convinced that luck had nothing to do with his miraculous survival; moreover, the mysterious stranger has a ridiculous theory that explains the condition of the man whose bones never break.
5. The Crow (1994)

On the night before Halloween, the brutal henchmen of the deadly criminal kingpin, Top Dollar, murder up-and-coming rock sensation Eric Draven.
