Re: What are your top 5 "first in the series" superhero movies?
1. Batman Begins - 8.5/10
2. Batman (1989) - 8/10
3. Superman (1978) - 8/10
4. Iron Man - 8/10
These 4 are all in my top 6 superhero movies along with Batman: Mask of the Phantasm and X2: X-Men United.
To round out my top 5 franchise starters, this is where it gets tougher for me. I would probably go with Spider-Man or The Amazing Spider-Man. Both of them are around a 7.5/10 for me and I like them slightly more than Captain America and X-Men.
