Superhero Day hits the North East!

Superhero Day hits the North East!

5th May 2017 Off By Tabitha Peverley

Today (May 5) is a very special day, it is a day to celebrate our favourite superheroes!

With the superhero genre growing in popularity with help from popular movie franchises such as Marvel’s The Avengers, it feels like there is no getting away from the legendary characters. The North East, in particular, seems to have been hit with hero fever recently, with the new Avengers: Infinity War film being filmed at Durham Cathedral this week. Everyone wants the chance to catch a glimpse of their favourite heroes.

Why? They allow us to escape from reality and imagine ourselves as an exaggerated version of ourselves which may be why we love them so much! But who are our favourites? We asked the people of Sunderland who their favourite heroes were and why. Watch their answers below:

Who is your favourite? Black Widow? Iron Man? Superman? WonderWoman? Let us know by tweeting us @North_LightsNE and use the hashtag #SuperheroDay.
