Hulu started off as a destination for television programming. However in May, there are a lot of movies to check out. Two that caught my attention are original documentaries about Batman and James Bond.

"Batman & Bill" tells the story of one of the creators of Batman -- Bill Finger. While Bob Kane got all the publicity for years as the creator of the Dark Knight, it was actually Bill Finger who deserves the lion's share of praise. The documentary was inspired by the book, "Bill The Boy Wonder: The Secret Co-Creator of Batman."

Then there's another documentary entitled, "Becoming Bond," which explains how a car mechanic named George Lazenby became cinema's most famous spy for a very short time.

Check out the full list below. Titles marked with an asterisk require an additional subscription to Showtime to watch.
