It's A Bird! It's A Plane! No, It's My Superhero Movie Reviews!

This Friday, March 25th marks the release of easily one of the most anticipated movies of the year, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" (2016). So, in honor of this event, the dream match-up of every young comic book loving fan, I have provided links to every superhero movie adaptation I have reviewed, just to help you get ready for this Friday.

You may notice I have not always been supportive of comic book adaptations but I have slowly, very slowly, tried to give these movies a second chance and have actually written quite a few reviews for this genre.

Reviews are listed in order of release.

1. "The Mark of Zorro" (1920) - silent version starring Douglas Fairbanks.
