Greatest Superhero Movie Franchises of all time

By Peter Lang & Nathan Taylor

So what is your favourite all- time Comic Book Superhero movie series?

Over the years there have been some fantastic superhero movies made, there's also been some stinkers as well.

Even wonderful series like Superman which began with an epic tale in 1978 produced a few clangers when Parts III & IV were released.

Then there's the Batman franchise which spawned such classics like Batman Forever (1995) and The Dark Knight (2008) and such rotten tomatoes like Batman Returns (1992) and the truly woeful Batman & Robin (1997) with George Clooney in the title role.

The new millennium bought about a superhero revolution with the X-Men (2000-06) and Spiderman (2002-07) trilogy re-igniting our passion for comic book movies. They were so adult in orientation and sophisticated in their presentation that we fell in love with superheroes all over again.

In our latest podcast we discuss all these movie franchises in detail and reveal some interesting facts about each series you might not have heard before. Click this link to listen now or go to our sister website
