Default Best Origin Movie?

Batman Begins seems to have a bit more competition these days than it did a few years ago, so I was just curious as to what everyone else felt was the best superhero origin movie we have had so far.

Batman Begins is my number one origin movie, but for me Hulk isnt far behind it, same with a few others. Also, because the likes of The Incredible Hulk and Superman Returns are only SORT OF origin movies, they dont count for me, same with Batman '89. And the likes of Transformers, Constantine, V For Vendetta and Sin City are really not origin movies either.

So choose you pick from the rest.

^It was very faithful, my problem with Iron Man was that it brought nothing new to the table with regards to CB movies, and the action scene's left a lot ot be desired.

The main reason I made this thread is that a lot of people still consider Superman: The Movie the best origin movie ever, but I think its far from it myself, just wanted to see what others thought.

Superman:the Movie will always be the greatest to me. No other origin film captured my attention and inspired me quite like it. Christopher Reeve remains the quintessential Superman, and took comic book material from the camp of the Adam West Batman series to a new exciting vision of what the material could be. From the last hours of a grand civilization to a rural farm town, we follow Kal-El to his destiny of becoming Superman. I believe that a man can fly because of that film. It will remain number one for all time!

Until this year I'd have said Superman 1, but Iron Man wins this IMO. Supes comes in at # 2 and then Batman Begins with Spidey bringing up the rear.

Superman The Movie, by far.

Despite the campy villains and some plot holes, Donner captured the spirit and wonder of the character perfectly. The film still works, it is epic, magical, poetic, timeless and classic. Plus Christopher Reeve and the William's score were superb. I truly believed that a man could fly.

BB, IM, Spidey and X-Men are also very good, but they lack the magic and epic qualities of Superman The MOvie for me. Or maybe I prefer STM because I just prefer Superman over the other superheroes? Who knows.

I don't consider X1 an origin story per se, AVE. It's more of an introduction to the characters, if that makes any sense.

Easily Batman Begins, Spiderman shot itself in the foot by excluding Gwen Stacy so second spot goes to Iron Man.

And by saying the story is "All about a girl".

That's not what Spider-Man is about.

I see what you are saying about X1, but at the same time, it did give the origins of Magneto and Rogue.

Personally, I dont see how it wasnt, it showed how the character got his powers, and explained why he began doing what he was.
