First time I saw Batman Begins I walked out of the theatre and I was like . Compared to the first time I saw Batman '89 which was .

But best superhero origin movie? Superman wins by a landslide. The whole beginning on Krypton is one of the best movie sequences ever.

Spiderman..... gets bitten by a spider. Lame.

Iron Man was pretty good, though.

Haven't seen Captain America.

Anyway, I think they should have directly adapted Batman: Year One. That is my favourite Batman origin story.

As soon as someone seriously uses "Lame" to prove a point, I suddenly care less about what they have to say.

But, That is the established origin of Spider-Man, if you find it Lame then, why go and watch the movie ?

The first two Spiderman films are pretty good.

Spiderman just has my least favourite origin, compared to Superman, Batman and Iron Man.

Batman's origin is cool and Begins did it brilliantly.

Batman Begins / Superman: TM / Iron Man / Spider-Man

Cream of the origin crop, as far as it goes for me.

Batman Begins is a good movie and I have appreciated it more over time. Same with Spiderman and X-Men (partially an origin story, I think?).

Iron Man is the best. Batman 89 is second.

Probably Spider-Man and Superman next.

Does Batman even count as an origin film?

No. Batman 89 isn't really an origin movie.

Anyway Begins isn't the best, because it leaves out too many essential things that make up the Batman character.

It might. It shows the character and how it all began. And you cana ctually see the hero in action, that's gotta count for something.

But that's not really the focus of the film, so I don't think it counts.

The focus was the emergence of Batman in Gotham, if B89 isn't an origin, then YO wouldn't be an origin either.

Well, Bruce's parents' murder is shown, but it's a short flashback, and Bruce's training is not shown at all. That, and Sam Hamm and Tim Burton's intentions were to not tell an origin story.

That's not what qualifies an origin story. An origin story is about how the hero came to be. In Batman, he's already Batman by the time the film starts. Batman: Year One shows much more of Bruce's evolution towards becoming Batman much more by comparison.

Bruce's killing got more or less the same screentime than in Batman begins. it's not like Begins showed 30 minutes of Chill killing the Waynes while B89 30 seconds.

And then, if I'm not mistakenm Superman's training wa snot shown in STM. So, is it not an origin film wither?

Now I cannot give a damn about any director's intentions. What the movie showed was there, no more nor less. If they didn't want to show the origin, then they failed. But, if I'm not again mistaken, their intention was NOT not to show the origin but to keep it a secret while Batman was introduced to keep him a total mistery.

When Batman Begins starts he's half-way into Batman. We know about Bruce's parents killing through a flashback, just like, a certain other Batman movie. Same as Batman Year One.

YO shows more evolution sure, but Batman very much details Batman's psychological scarring and advancement from his childhood trauma to adulthood. He very much evolves and grows as a character throughout the film.

I think Thor introduced us to him and his world very well. It succeeded where GL failed, in terms of "out there" concepts being executed well. It was also a great origin for Loki as well. It was his path towards villainy as much as it was Thor's towards heroism.

But i wouldn't put it in my top 3.

1. Iron Man
2. Batman Begins
3. Spider-Man

I liked Thor. It takes the superhero origin formula and puts it into a unique environment. I think Spiderman is, by itself, a better film than BB. It really set the paradigm for origin stories in the 21st century.

But if you look at BB as in the first chapter of TDK saga, it makes much more sense has merit by that standard. The themes aren't as deep in Spiderman, but it's engaging, well-cast, and the action is tops. Also, despite a lighthearted atmosphere, it still does have a little substance.
