THE BEST COMIC BOOK FILM VILLAINS OVER THE LAST 25 YEARS (PART 1)
2014 will mark the 25th Anniversary of Tim Burton’s Batman. After the success of Superman (1978) and Superman 2 (1980) comic book related films took a downward turn. Movies like Howard the Duck (1986) and Dolph Lundgren’s The Punisher (1989), as well as a couple of failed Superman sequels brought the genre down to juvenile status. This would change with Batman. Since 1989 there have been over 40 films between DC and Marvel. While some are near perfect in terms of origin story and execution (Iron Man), some, not so much (Daredevil).
