At least this thread popped up after the Hulk and Iron Man. Still, I expect another one in a month when Dark Knight comes out.

Why? What makes this thread any different than the half dozen identical threads that get posted every year?

The only movie on that list that I liked was Batman Begins.
I thought Iron Man was so bad that it became the first movie I've ever walked out of.

I rather enjoyed both Constantine and V for Vendetta, but they don't belong in the same category as Batman/Superman/Iron Man/Hulk/X-Men/Spiderman/etc.

Just so we can finally have one and any others that pop up gets deleted. Hell, if you can find the first one, then use that.

I originally had V for Vendetta on my list, as well as the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, but I pulled them off the list, because I felt they weren't super heroes. Constantine though, to me, fits the bill of a superhero, albeit, a very odd one.
