Superman all the way. In my book, he's the best superhero ever with Batman a close second. However, when it comes to these two movies: Superman by a mile. This is pure cinema. That John Williams score. The cast. The first two thirds of the movie are the best parts and that's before Clark even becomes Superman! And the Kansas scenes are pure Americana.
I love Batman but the original Superman film is iconic. Christopher Reeves IS Superman!!
I've always thought 'Superman' as a hero is great idea but never that great in execution, so 'Batman' has my vote.
Flying backwards thro
This is the only battle in which Superman will always beat Batman.
Christopher Reeves as Superman was great, no doubt on that, but the the whole Batman movie is better than an actor
I liked Burton's Batman, but the original Superman film is a true classic.
I, too, appreciated Christopher Reeves as Superman/Clark Kent, as well as Margot Kidder as Lois & John Williams's score. But Hackman's Luthor never did much for me, and the final act--insisted upon by the studio--never worked for me, either. "Batman" all the way.
Aw come on!
Superman is a better movie and a better superhero.
Christopher Reeve was the best Superman, and the movie almost worked. But BATMAN is my personal fave, since Tim Burton knew exactly how to portray a jaded hero as well as a gleefully homicidal clown. Also, Danny Elfman beats John William's score.
I know, let's randomly go back in time in order to remove all obstacles and errors, thereby nullifying the need for an actual resolution! Brilliant! That's what good writers do when they don't have any logical way to end a story. Also shines a light on Hollywood's pathetic yet absolute desperation to have good triumph over evil. Superman (like Ocean's 12, I guess) is a good movie with a bad, bad ending. Batman, suffers no fools.
It's the original Batman on this one. Nicholson's performance isn't talked about enough...
Oh, this is a hard one!
Supporting cast: Superman
Superman is one of my favourite movies of all time! Batman is not half as good. Marlon Brando as Jor-el = Amazing
This is easy for me Batman is way better superhero and also a way better movie.
Suoerman wins, by a hair.
Gotta go with Batman if it was Superman 2 i would have picked that.
Batman is much better.
