I wouldn’t call this Captain America serial “the best,” but as Marvel’s oldest, live-action adaptation, it’s a fascinating look at superhero history. It drastically deviates from the original story — and there’s a lack of Nazi-punching — but it’s a fun deep-dive into Marvel’s archives.
It’s definitely not the snore-fest that was Ang Lee’s Hulk. This Hulk has far more action and an actual plot. Edward Norton gave a solid performance as a very believable and vulnerable Bruce Banner — at least until Mark Ruffalo came along.
Before 2018, Black Panther was sadly underrepresented. If you’re looking for more Black Panther material (especially after Chadwick Boseman’s death), check out this mini-series. The story is rather rushed and character development is a bit lacking, but visually, it’s pretty cool to see.
He’s not Tom Holland, but Andrew Garfield gives a pretty great performance as our favorite web-swinger. He’s less nerdy and more wisecracking, but still enjoyable. And Emma Stone is an obscenely perfect Gwen Stacy. Best scene: Spider-Man vs. the Lizard in the school — flawless.
This is the TV movie that started the famous series starring Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno as Dr. Banner/the Hulk. Despite straying from the original material, it’s the best stand-alone Hulkmovie. A solid story with engaging characters, this Marvel classic is worth a watch.
X-Men gave moviemakers a nudge towards superhero films, but Spider-Man was the push they needed. Fans flocked to see one of Marvel’s most famous heroes on the big screen for the first time, and they weren’t disappointed. An authentic, funny Spider-Man; a memorably psychotic villain; and a comic book-feel were just what fans wanted.
