Okay, Darkman doesn't have a better script or direction than Superman but the cinematography is definitly more creative! That was Raimi in Evil Dead mode!
I second that! But, getting back to Darkman I simply think its a really fun movie to watch! Superman is a great film but Darkman is just so much fun to watch. Maybe it isn't better but I definitly enjoy watching it more.
I've never liked Darkman - except for the crazy pink elephant scene - but I like the concept. I love the idea, like a Universal monster movie crossed with the 70's Hulk TV show. But execution is awful. IMO.
There is no Marvel/DC rivalry. Most of the great comic creators worked for both; Jack Kirby, Frank Miller, Grant Morrison, Walt Simonsen, Gil Kane, Steve Ditko, John Byrne, Steve Englehart, Mark Waid...even Stan Lee.
