Default Re: Superman the Movie = STILL the greatest superhero movie

I doubt we will ever have another film like it. The new paradigm is that films have to be grim, replete with scenes of death and destruction, heroes sacrificing their moral code, and without humor, as we all know Marvel invented humor and enforces their copyright on it aggressively...cannot have humor, as we all know DC's depictions of superheroes are "realistic," and no one in the real world cracks a joke.

Besides, if the studio did return to the S:TM paradigm, there would be the biggest crapstorm the internet has ever seen. I am not saying the film is without flaw, but, we will never see a film like it again.

"I defeated your uncle Victarion and his Iron Fleet off Fair Isle, the first time your father crowned himself. I held Storm's End against the power of the Reach for a year, and took Dragonstone from the Targaryens. I smashed Mance Rayder at the Wall, though he had twenty times my numbers. Tell me, turncloak, what battles has the B---- of Bolton ever won that I should fear him?"
One of the best soundtrack sections. Ever.
