Circuit 3: Superhero Movies



With Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel flying into theaters this weekend (read Terence’s review here), I thought this would be a fun time to rank our favorite Superhero Movies, Heroes, and Villains. So if you prefer The Dark Knight over The Amazing Amazon, or whether you are a bigger fan of The Clown Prince of Crime than The God of Mischief and Lies, we want to know! Feel free to use this week to rank anything you like regarding superheroes.

My Circuit 3 for Superhero Movies:

  1.  The Dark Knight Trilogy (2005, 2008, 2012) – I had to cheat here because otherwise these films would take up all three slots
  2. Superman (1978)
  3. The Avengers (2012)

My Circuit 3 for Superheroes (as portrayed in film):

  1. Superman (Christopher Reeve)
  2. Wolverine (Hugh Jackman)
  3. Batman (Christian Bale)

My Circuit 3 for Villains (as portrayed in film):

  1. The Joker (Heath Ledger)
  2. Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman)
  3. Loki (Tom Hiddleston)

What are your Circuit 3 for Superheroes week? Be creative. Rank something fun.
