There's a teenager finding his powers and place in the world through mentoring and training in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Samuel L. Jackson is pretty iconic as Nick Fury in the Avengers movies, while the Guardians of the Galaxy movies hit a similar tone. Matthew Vaughn and the writers also worked on X-Men: Days of Future Past, First Class and Stardust. And there's more secret organisations in the Men in Black and more British spies in The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
