Netflix just announced their slate of new releases coming for the month of June and there are quite a few new shows to get excited about if you're a fan of superheroes.
However, the movie side is looking a little thin unless you're a glutton for punishment.
There are already a ton of amazing shows and movies on the streaming service, such as the entire Young Justice animated series featuring DC Comics greatest teen heroes and sidekicks.
Netflix also hosts its own slew of original content in partnership with Marvel Television, creating its own universe of street-level superheroes with Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. Though we'll have to wait until August for their inevitable team-up in Defenders, you'll be able to pass the time with what's already offered.
All of these great shows will be joined by the newest seasons of shows that have or will soon end, joining previous episodes of the series for the latest binge watchers to catch up.
Check out the following pages to find out more about the comic-based offerings coming to the popular streaming service this June.
Catwoman (June 1)
Yeah, yeah, I know. Catwoman is considered among the worst comic book-based movies of all time.
But the Halle Berry film is actually pretty hilarious if you can stomach it. Some people might find a bit of charm in its cringe-inducing plot and acting, but if you're the type of viewer that can enjoy films that are "so bad, they're good," this one might be up your alley.
Berry stars as Patience Phillips, a shy graphic designer working for a cosmetics company owned by the villainous Laurel Hedare, played by Sharon Stone.
Hedare's company is set on releasing a new product that melts skin if you stop using it, but hardens it if you keep using it. Talk about a lose-lose scenario! Phillips discovers the deadly side effects, causing Hedare to sick her goons on the Phillips who end up drowning her.
But when Phillips is rescued by a mysterious Egyptian Man cat, she becomes the Catwoman! Yes, that really is the plot of this movie. Yes, it is as ridiculous as it sounds. Yes, it is worth a watch if you don't take yourself too seriously and don't mind wasting a couple hours of your life.prevnext
Arrow: Season 5 (June 1)
The latest season of Arrow is bringing Oliver Queen's journey full circle as he fights a mysterious villain named Prometheus.
The newest Big Bad knows a lot of the Green Arrow's secrets, his sacrifices, and compromises to become the hero of Star City. And he wants Oliver and his friends to pay for it.
The show reveals more about Oliver's past and how he became the powerful vigilante he was when he returned after the devastating boat trip that killed his father. It also puts him and his allies through tumultuous trials as they endure the wrath of Prometheus.
When Prometheus reveals his shocking identity, everyone on Team Arrow is left reeling. But they have to pick up the pieces as the exposed villain only becomes more dangerous.
Oliver has to recruit some unlikely allies to take down Prometheus, but not before he faces his own personal demons that have plagued him since the show began.prevnext
Agents of SHIELD: Season 4 (June 15)
The newest season of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD suffered from being forced to take two separate breaks, but the producers behind the show made up for them by grouping the episodes into three separate "pods."
Netflix watchers won't be subjected to those delays and instead can experience the show at their leisure.
The first pod introduces Robbie Reyes, AKA the Spirit of Vengeance, AKA Ghost Rider. Helping the SHIELD Agents search for a power artifact called the Darkhold, villainous forces attempt to obtain it for mysterious reasons.
The second pod reveals that Life Model Decoys—life-like robotic replicas of human beings—have been created and infiltrate the team. A villain named Radclife betrays Fitz trust and uses his knowledge to perfect the technology, utilizing the Darkhold to enact his misguided vision.
It all comes to a head in the final pod of the season where the agents are plunged into an artificial reality called the Framework, where Hydra is in control of the United States and Inhumans are rounded up and executed, causing paranoia to infect everyday lives.
Daisy, Coulson, and the rest of the gang must rally up the troops in order to defeat a maniacal L.M.D. who is hellbent on enacting her own sense of justice on the world.prevnext
