The report focuses on the mythical structure hidden within the popular movies from its golden times to the present days. More specifically, it deals with the epic, which, although not being exactly mythology, possesses many of its characteristics. Nowadays, it is the epic the one invading both the big and the small screen, even more than the literature. This occurs through movies and TV series that are joined by their stylistic and structural elements: strong realism, a complex narrative structure, a popular attitude, fantastic elements, a struggling hero full of dark sides, and a gloomy vision of reality hiding a slight hope. Within this framework, it is important to understand if, beyond the grandeur of the massive scenes, there is indeed some material belonging to the traditional western epic. Here, without entering into the merits of history, we will try to find out whether the term „Epic” is used properly when talking about movies like: The Lord of the Rings series by Peter Jackson, 300 by Zack Snyder especially the Dark Knight trilogy, where the one only known as Batman becomes the Dark Knight.
