Superman Vs Spiderman















I watched Superman Returns twice and can't believe he has a son! Wow, now that that spoiler is out of the way lets talk reviews.

It's a good movie...but not the Summer Movie I have been waiting for! Boy the sound effects are really SUPER! Lord bless Surround. Special effects were awesome.


Brandon Routh plays superman really well and I think in time he will acquire that polite modest arrogance/confidence of being superman...instead of looking like he is pouting. Dean Cain and Tom Welling had/have that confidence...and Brandon will too. I believe he was well cast for this gigantic role and will mould with it come the sequel.

Don't get me started on Lois Lane played by Kate Bosworth!


Kevin Spacey was great (though I kept seeing him as Kevin Spacey and not Lex Luthor) and his side-kick Kitty delivered some good laughs!

He always plays villains extremely well, remember him in Se7en?



Unfortunately for me I was looking for action and not a big romantic storyline. Boy, they wasted reel-time with 'Superman in hospital' sequence/Superman and Lois flying around the world...I needed more action than I did a romance!







You all know the story, Superman had returned to krypton and has been missing from earth for 5 years. Sure, the same triangles of Lois/Clark were there...Lois/Superman...Jonathan Kent was dead...Lois has moved on and had a son who ends up being superman's kid...But its kinda funny knowing that Superman done done the nasty with Lois! hahahahaha

As good a flick as this was, I feel XMen3 delivered more! and I'm sad to say i preferred XMEN


I took my nephews to go watch it yesterday. And after returning the last one home yesterday he changed into his superman pyjamas and climbed into his spiderman sheets. Conflict of interests i'd say..but from there a post was born!

Between Superman and Spiderman who is your hero? Who's is more cooler or tougher? Tho both have killer theme music...

Cause obviously Superman is uber powerful.Superman could kick Spidey's ass even if his webs were made of Kryptonite. Superman is one bad mutha....


1.Has NATURAL powers. His strength and abilities are innate.No spider bite!
2.Invincible except when it comes to that lil green rock
3.That S sign on his costume and the cape totally ROCK!
4.HE CAN FLY!!!!!! no superhero has that on him..wacha that Batman and his fake leaps..he can FLY!


Ever wonder how his cape dangles under his suit? where his specs go when he changes...and don't even get me started on the boots?

So, that out of the way. Why on earth does SPIDERMAN rule more. Cause as much as I like Superman I think I have Spidey fetish.

When it comes to BOXoffice wise. Spiderman will always thrush Superman. SPIDEY rocks! There is something that was missing in Superman Returns that you will always find in Spiderman movies. Have you seen the preview of Spiderman 3..watch it and you will see the X-factor I'm talking about that makes Spidey Rock! And hence I'm always biased towards Spidey!


It is darker, grander and more overwhelming-check the preview here
A reviewer said " this is sex, in a video! kinda like porno. but better."

I CANNOT wait for SPIDERMAN3.

Now is that a costume or what? ebu someone hook Nick up with this template.








Spiderman has more villains, more action sequences and that MaryJ Spiderman love triangle in an entangled web isn't too overplayed like the Lois/Clark one.

Not to mention they too go all the way out with special effects.

1.Remember the closing sequence in Spiderman1...as he leaped up and about and landed on the American Flag? Some serious C-G choreography...which don't compare to Superman's flying!


2.Not to mention that upside down kiss..boy I wish I could dangle like that

well spiderman is coming in 2007 .not next month or anything 2007 , now thats a long wait man - suggested reading till then marvel's Civil War , has everything that superman doesnt .

think I will stick to smallville superman returns is/was overhyped .
well as for your summer movie , POC DMC seems to be the only hope left speaking of which 44% done already ...

Hola, heard you were watching Superman for the THIRD time on Saturday!

Between the two, I'd go for Spiderman, but ultimately I'ma Batman fan - with the dark side, no super powers, just hard work and human flaws, it's the most real

spicebear said...

of course, you forgot to mention that superman is invincible lakini his underwear always ends up outside his pants ...

am i out of order if i say that captain planet absolutely rocks? i am? ah well, then i chose spidey.

The curse of Batman: Each good movie is followed by 2 bad ones (presenting superman vs. batman: http://www.popoholic.com/2006/07/07/batman-and-superman-movie/)

Bollocks!Instead of comparing this superman movie to the lastest spiderman movie you should compare it to spiderman 1.Superman returns beats it hands down.The first movie is always to set up the story with minimal action.I am sure the next superman movie shall be full of action and a super villain or two!But I will admit that the new spiderman movie looks good and so does ghost rider.But at the end of the day superman and spiderman fans are two very different sets of people and so are the characters themselves!

Just two quick lines on this post Nick even though I have no access to a template-worthy pic right now:

Superman 3 was shot some 30mins away from home & yours truly is already reworking some scenes from the 2007 release. Check your inbox in a couple days & catch the dark costumed Spidey...Peace!

kelitu said...

I'd go for spiderman coz anyman who can kiss me upside down in the rain has my vote...

Movie Buff said...

Im so done with Spiderman. I saw that trailer and I felt NOTHING for it. N.O.T.H.I.N.G..........

But between the two, I would with Superman...... but if I were to choose from all HUMAN super heros... Batman....

mwasjd said...

Xmen 3 was tight but was sad that Scot & the Professor kufad mapema, still was deep.

What about MI:3? I kinda found it too mushy... Not like the more action ones before it.

Kevin Spacey should play the role as Mysterio in the upcomming spider-man 4 movie because he looks mysterious and unpredictable and seems like he can win at cards tricks faster than the naked eye. I think He would make a better mysterio than Lex Luthor
