Last year cinemagoers were treated to an epic showdown between two of the most iconic comic book characters of all time in Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. The film that kickstarted the DC Extended Universe has put the wheels in motion for a number of other films based on stars of DC Comics including Wonderwoman, The Flash, and Aquaman. DC Extended Universe is still a way behind the much better established Marvel Studios, but there is certainly scope for crossovers between the two comic book giants in the future.
Something that a lot of comic book fans may be hoping to see is a big screen adaptation of the classic Superman vs The Amazing Spider-Man series of graphic novels from 1976. With Marvel set to release Spider-Man: Homecoming (see trailer below) this year after introducing the new actor (Tom Holland) who is playing the web-slinger in Captain America: Civil War, there is scope for a new series of films involving everyone’s favourite arachnid.
For modern audiences, Spider-Man is probably the better established of the two characters in cinema, with the most popular Superman films all taking place in the late 1970s and early 1980s. But Superman has always been a mainstay in pop culture and is also prevalent in gaming.
There have been 17 Superman games across various platforms throughout the last three decades, and multiple other titles featuring the Man of Steel. One of the current ways to play as the man from Krypton is the Superman online slot game. This is a 5-reel, 50 pay line slot that boasts comic book style graphics and a Save the World feature where players are tasked with tracking down Superman’s nemesis, Lex Luthor.
But who would win between the two superheroes? The smart money would probably be on Superman due to his unrivalled strength, but Spider-man is known to be cunning and quick on his feet- would the Man of Steel be able to catch him? There’s only one way to find out. Please Marvel and DC, get together again and make this happen.
