I enjoyed Henry Cavill in Man of Steel. There were several problematic moments with Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner) surrounding "keeping his secret" and even Kent Sr's death but in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he's made peace with the man he wants to be... or at least, wants to try to be. There's a lovely back and forth between the Last Son of Krypton and America (the Political Monster) in which they're all set to put sanctions on him because he operates outside of their authority; and though it's never mentioned you get the impression if he was willing to become the U.S.'s special weapon (ala The Dark Knight Returns) his problems would go away.

5. Batman (1989)
Michael Keaton || Batman
Some people might be surprised that Tim Burton's 1989 re-imagining of the Caped Crusader only just squeezes into the Top 5 but they shouldn't be. For the most art I've been struggling over Batman (1989) and Batman: The Movie (1966). The truth of the matter is that 1989 edges out the Era of West because it opened the door to a "darker" interpretation of comic book cinema. Without Batman we might not have had X-Men, Spider-Man (and 2), and even the Nolan Universe... but the truth of the matter is this is no more a Batman movie than I am.
