The 50 Best Comic Book Movies

Superman

Director: Richard Donner
Year: 1978
Even in the peak of the cynical disco years, Christopher Reeve politely calling Margot Kidder "Miss Lane" and rescuing cats from trees was so gosh-darn sincere you couldn't help but love it. Despite some elements that border on deal-breakers (Lois's flying poetry recital, Ned Beatty's comic relief), this movie captured the heart of Superman as well as anything before or since.
