The announcement that Ride with the Devil director Ang Lee was going to be stepping behind the camera for the 2003 title Hulk caused many hands to be rubbed together in gleeful anticipation. The comic book movie as a genre was still recovering from the nipple-clad camp fest that was Joel ...

If Batman & Robin set the caped crusader back a decade with its overtly campness then it could be argued that it set the comic book genre back by at least half that. Arriving right on cue to save the day is Tobey Maguire in Evil Dead director, Sam Raimi's Spider-Man.

In an alternate universe this 1990 adaptation of the much loved super soldier starred Val Kilmer which maybe prevented him from stepping into the Batcave for Batman Forever. Maybe Michael Keaton stayed on-board and helped use some star-power to get Tim Burton back behind the lens.
