Superhero movies are all the rage in Hollywood these days, and many of them are among some of the greatest action flicks ever made. One aspect of superhero films that tends to be overlooked is accuracy, specifically when it comes to science and culture. And surely, no one expects comic book films to contain surprisingly accurate historical details. After all, there's no factual scientific basis for someone getting superhuman strength and the powers of a spider if a radioactive one bites a person. In the real world, they'd probably just get really sick.
Despite this, the people making the multi-billion dollar superhero films taking the world by storm do their best to include as much accuracy as possible. Just because gamma radiation can't turn a person into an Incredible Hulk, that doesn't mean the basic science isn't correct. Fortunately, there are quite a few surprisingly accurate details that superhero movies somehow got right despite the presence of otherworldly/super-powered explanations going around.
Most people never notice these details, as they tend to linger in the background. Fortunately, there are some who see something and post it to the Movie Details subreddit. Whenever this happens, something particularly remarkable about a film's production comes to light, and this list highlights the very best examples of surprisingly accurate details that superhero movies somehow got right.
