    The Dark Knight. Great performances, action, score and it ends in a coverup.

    While I love Dark Knight, Superman is my go to movie.
    Probably just nostalgia though.

    Dark Knight is clearly the best. The only other two in the conversation are The Avengers and Batman 1989, both of which are extremely campy.

    The first one? I considered it too but Ledger's Joker was a masterwork. Nothing like it in Superman.

    Spiderman 2. Very true to the comic, had some great fights, Doc Ock was a really good villain, and the scene on the train is fantastic.
