Batman is cooler. Superman is stronger. Either side of this decade-long debate has left comic book enthusiasts on either side slightly more angry at each other than they should be. No matter where you come down on the oft-argued showdown between these two DC comic book superheroes, everyone can get behind a movie involving the Dark Knight or the Man of Steel. When the two of them get together, well, frothing madness may be an understatement.
In raucous anticipation of the release of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice on March 25th, we’ve decided to throw our own movie marathon honoring the caped Crusader and The Last Son of Krypton. Both have had strong entries and not so strong entries, but all of them have people with strong feelings about them. We’ve lined up our contributors to tackle some of their favorite movies covering multiple iterations of both the Bat and Supes. In order to stoke the fires of your enthusiasm, here is our full schedule including the fabulous contributor who is reviewing the movie.
