The Ten Spot: Favorite Superhero Movies
With IRON MAN 3 due to open in thousands of movie theaters all over North America by the end of the week (my review will be up around Thursday), we here at JoBlo.com figured it would be a great time to look back at some of the best superhero movies (my faves, at least), a genre which has come to dominate the summer tent-pole movie season. As this is a "Ten Spot
", and not a twenty or thirty spot, some favorites have no doubt been left off the list, but I tried to make this as broad a list as possible, with a few of the entries pre-dating the post SPIDER-MAN comic-book movie explosion of 2002. The fact that I had such a hard time boiling my list down to ten just goes to show how good the genre has become, with pretty much all the films on this list being both commercial, and
critical successes. Clearly, the superhero movie isn't going anywhere.
