Default Re: Batman Begins Best Origin Movie ever ?

Batman Begins is far superior to Spider-Man, because it has an actual throughline from origin to first adventure, a much stronger plot, much better villain(s), and it does a far better job of exploring its protagonist.

Fan of Christopher Nolan's Batman!
