Our Movies Editor Simon has put together a gallery of most Marvel movies, past and present:

We're wondering: which Marvel Comics movie franchise is your favourite? ('Franchise' because listing each individual movie would make a very big poll!)

I've separated Hulk/The Incredible Hulk because the latter is a reboot.

was Incredible Hulk a reboot??
They didnt explain Hulks origin again in part 2..
I think Punisher:war zone was just as much a reboot as Incredible Hulk

they kind of did in the opening Credits(shows bruce's gamma radiation accident and initial transformation into the Hulk) but it also starts in South America so could be used as a loose continuation if they wanted but i tend to forget the Ang Lee film,as i prefer the 2008 film(it reminds me more of the old TV show)

You shouldn't have lumped the third X Men film in with the superb first two.

Indeed. I'd rather not have, it was a very poor film - but it is a continuation of the same franchise/marvel universe...

Went for Blade on the basis of consistentcy across all 3 movies.

Spiderman, X Men and Iron Man suffered with poor sequels after spectacular first outings.

For the record I thought Thor was really quite pointless(much like his band of god buddies) and Eric Bana's Hulk was deplorable.

Hoping to be entertained by Capt America tomorrow night.


EDIT: Buggrit. It was multiple choice.

I'm glad it said 'or Spiderman 3' as opposed to 'and Spiderman 3'

I wouldn't want anybody to think that I liked Spiderman 3.

This should be an interesting poll since you can multiple vote.

Loved the Spiderman franchise, annoyed they're rebooting it. Whatever happened to 'with great power comes great responsibility?' What about their responsibility to the fans? Will miss the great soundtrack to those too, and Maguire and Dunst.

The X-men films I love too, including the third, though that's mainly due to Ellen Page being in it

Thought Thor was a great film too, think he's my favourite superhero now.

I think we can blame Twentieth Century Fox's marketing department for that. Still, it didn't do badly considering it was an all new cast.
I'm sure the sequel will perform much better.

X-Men 2 without a doubt has to be the best. The opening with nightcrawler in the white house was brilliant!!!

X-Men First Class, Spiderman 2 and Thor, are pretty much tied for 2nd

In my case it was all those multiple screens. They just drove me mad.

Didn't realize it was multiple choice. Went for the X-Men movies, nothing can beat a team of people with powers. Looking forward to the Avengers.

No Conan? I know he wasen't a Marvel invention, but they did have a lot of Conan Comics (Dracula as well).

Just don't think the cinema going public were quite ready for such a deep, existential, tragedy of a movie when they were just probably expecting a big-screen version of the Bill Bixby tv show. It was essentially an art house film from an art house director. However, there was still much to enjoy by true comic-book fans; I didn't mind the split-screen comic panels, myself. The desert tank attack sequence was brilliant. Shame about the hulk-dogs, the barely discernible cloud-thing / fight at the end and the low-key performances by Bana and Connelly.

Marvel were brave to take a chance on Ang Lee, but can see why a far more conventional (and action-orientated) approach, was taken for the reboot.

Batman 1 with Jack Nicholson and the other one with Heath Ledger beats all of them imo (and I know it's DC).

X2. XMen movies are definitely the best Marvel ones... except Wolverine.

The mulitple screens is one of the things i like most about it...the editing was oscar worthy, i thought it was innovative how they stylised it to look like comic book panels.

The Spiderman films work best for me . I like all 3 , in fact I'd say they're even better than the comics .
