Ranking Live Action Superman

On Facebook, some of my friends were discussing ‘Man of Steel’ and Zack Snyder. Bob Bretall made a list ranking the live action Superman movie and TV shows, so I decided to do the same. I am not including Superboy or anything animated. I also decided to not include The Donner Cut of Superman II because it was an incomplete project.

Superman II
Superman: The Movie
Man of Steel
Smallville (taken as a whole and not by individual seasons)
Superman Returns
The Adventures of Superman (1950’s TV series)
Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman
Superman III
Superman IV: The Quest For Peace

How would you rank them?

To be entered, correctly answer the following question: Mike Norton shares a studio with what fellow comic book creator?

VIDEO: “Batman: Strange Days” – Bruce Timm’s Batman 75th Anniversary Short (Official)

From Youtube: “A brand new short from producer Bruce Timm featuring a lost tale from Batman’s past, the Dark Knight tracks a strange giant to the mysterious lair of Dr. Hugo Strange.”

I’m not as enamored with Batman The Animated Series as some of my friends seem to be, but I think this is pretty cool.
