Really now. Because I was under the impression that it in large part began the course of the genre.

Sam Raimi:


I was going to say, there’s a few parallels with Superman II and III in the corresponding Spider-Man films.

Sam: There probably are, and I loved Superman II. I thought Richard Donner and Richard Lester both did a great job. It’s hard to say who did what on that. I don’t know, but I’m sure the aficionados know. That was another great picture. I cannot remember Superman III.
Let's hear from Christopher Nolan:

I was hugely struck by the Dick Donner films in the '70s when I was a kid. In 1978, I saw [Superman] and it had such epic scope to it. It took on this incredible, iconic figure and gave that iconic figure an appropriate framing. It made quite an impression on me. It's definitely one of my childhood touchstones of what epic cinema can be.
Superman II: Clark gives up his superpowers to live as a normal human.


Spider-Man 2: Peter Parker loses his powers and starts reverting back to what he was.

The Dark Knight: Bruce Wayne wants to hang up his mantle and live as a civilian with Rachel.
