COOL VIDEOS: Superheroes always do a three point landing
Have you ever not noticed something until someone pointed it out to you and after that you cannot stop seeing it? This video did that to me. Thanks a lot, Roger Ebert.
If you go back and look at every superhero movie released in the last fifteen years you will likely see the signature landing maneuver. It would make a nice drinking game for THE AVENGERS to see how many times Thor and Iron Man use the move (Note, JoBlo.com does not condone doing shots in a movie theater while watching THE AVENGERS. Please wait for Bluray and get sloshed at home).
It is obviously a more dramatic entrace to land in the Tebow-esque kneel rather than landing upright. Plus, it gives filmmakers the opportunity to act like true auteurs and get a nice female ass shot at the same time.
