Comic Book Heroes on The Big Screen

Superheroes are everywhere these days, especially in the movies. You've seen Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2, the X-Men have hit the big screen a couple time and now this summer you can look forward to even more superhero action. Batman Begins starring Christian Bale and Katie Holmes is at a theater near you and soon you can catch Jessica Alba in the Fantastic Four flick. See what I mean? Superheroes cannot be stopped.

Tobey Maguire has suited up a couple of times now as the infamous Spider-Man. And of course he also plays spidey's alter ego Peter Parker.

Superhero Movies - X-Men

The first X-Men movie (released in 2000) was a huge hit, with X-Men battling for equality while the Evil Mutants try to take over the world. In 2003, these comic book heroes hit the big screen again in X-Men 2. Bet you already have them in you DVD collection, huh?

Superhero Movies - Batman

The whole Batman saga was pretty crazy. In 1989 Michael Keaton played the caped crusader in Batman and received awesome reviews. He returned in 1992 to play the same character in Batman Returns. Three years after that came Batman Forever with Val Kilmer as Batman. He didn't receive the hottest reviews but it was still a good show. In 1997, the creators busted out with Batman and Robin and George Clooney took the Batman role. Clooney was arguably the worst Batman of them all. Most recently Christian Bale has donned the black cape in Batman Begins.
