The Spiderman movies have amazing character development which the X-Men movies lack. The X-Men movies have better action scenes and villians.

The character development in the Spiderman movies is so hokey and fake though, thanks to some pathetic acting and writing, that I could never give half a ****.

The Spiderman movies pander to kids in the 8-12 years old range. X-men to preteens and while Begins did have some dialogue to try and keep the younger audiences in the loop (unfortunately enough) it was meant for a teenage to adult audience, and it shows through the superior story, believability and the much superior acting (Katie Holmes aside).

Sue you? Is the consensus on Hellboy bad around here? It got great reviews. I thought it was a fantastic film, and I can't wait for the sequel.

Satirical stuff, nothing like the movie... Was a good read. I've only read a couple of issues of the old stuff, and the mini-series from a few years ago (I liked the send-up of the marketing machine that is the music industry)...

I wouldn't mind seeing the new Batman franchise become a trilogy of the best of Batman tales... the sequel (which is in development, but just to toss an idea out there...) could be a villain-fest, with most screentime going to the Joker and Black Mask...

the final could be an adaption of Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns. It would probably be a very abbreviated version, and leave alot of the interior dialogue out, pissing off fans of the 1986 series worldwide. A successful adaption of the either the three chapters starring the Mutant gang, The Joker, or the politically charged final chapter featuring Superman could blow alot of minds...

Since DKR's not creator-owned property, maybe FM wouldn't be as jazzed about being on the set as he was for his own baby Sin City, but it'd be cool to see him on set since he's gotten some experience from that and his Robocop work... not to mention 300 coming out next year.

In various stages of development:
Captain America
IMO this should of been done a lot sooner.

Nick Fury
Really? Could Sgt. Rock & Easy Company be far behind? I'm a big war movie guy.

Hellboy wasn't too bad. II really prefer DC with Batman (even the old ones), Superman (Cristopher Reeves), V for Vendetta and how about League of Extrordinary Gentlement which was great

While Marvel has come out with more films lately, I'm only going to say that I think the best of the bunch will be the Batman series. I know many people didn't like Batman Begins, but I really enjoyed the fact that they catered the movie to an older demographic, or so it seemed. BB just seemed like a darker movie, which I enjoyed. I'm looking forward to the next one. I'll also add that this new Batman series is a million times better than the previous ones. Even though Jim Carrey made a good joker, the Batman series is better suited to go against the sort of comedic script that's been prevalent in the previous ones.

I'll also give a thumbs up to the X-Men series, which I also really like, as well as the Spiderman movies, which do a great job of showing the Peter Parker/Spiderman struggle.

I was going to say the exact OPPOSITE! I think all the Marvel movies are better than the DC movies, even crap like "Daredevil". It's still better than the last 3 "Superman" movies were.

Although I liked the first "X-Men" movie a bit, I don't think they are really very good. No need for a 3rd one, guys.

"Batman Begins" was, however, very good (if a bit long). I'm not a fan of that whole "Dark Knight" thing from the 90's, when they changed Batman into a near-criminal himself. But anything is better that the movie with Val Kilmer and Jim Carrey in it! That was embarrassing!

I've probably enjoyed the Marvel series a bit more as a whole, but Fantastic Four was so craptastic, it spoils everything that comes in contact with it.

If you want an enjoyable comic-to-movie transition, then go no further than Sin City. It's a great comic book and the transition into movie was done exceptionally well, in my opinion. Also, the Watchmen is another solid comic that is going to be a movie soon and I think it has the opportunity to be great.

Batman Begins believable? You make me laugh! ha, ha, ha...

I do agree that when the writers/film makers stuck to what they actually knew a little about (U.S.) then it was actually pretty good.

However, the plot was so stupid that I laughed and couldn't help but mock the entire premise of some gang of people living throughout history to do whatever the heck they were doing through out the entire movie...gimme a break!!!

Then to make matters worse, the writers/filmmakers didn't even do their research on the other cultures and their history that they used before writing in a mish-mash of phony baloney stuff from Tibet and Japan so that what comes out is historically and culturally laughable kiddie story aimed at little kids who don't know any better!

I'd pick the 2nd Spiderman movie over the large part of the movie that is garbage in Batman Begins any day of the week and twice on Sundays!

Sin City was fantastic. Arguably the best comic book movie ever.

On topic; I think Marvel has the edge right now;
I really think they have done a great job with the Spiderman series; very nice blend of action and character building. The X-men movies have been very well done too. As someone else said they are weighing more towards the action than character or story, but the overall movies are very entertaining.

Right now, I only liked Batman Begins on the DC side (newer stuff), and really loved the original (1978) Superman & Superman 2. Don't know how much I'm looking forward to the re-make even because I liked the first so much. Although, after 1 & 2, that series really falls apart.
