I think we all like reading and watching interviews with legendary filmmakers discussing how they brought some of the most iconic movies to the big screen. But for me, I love to hear the rarer occasions when a legendary filmmaker will just sit down and talk movies like the rest of us. At the Cannes Film Festival premiere of his new film The BFG (read the early buzz here), Steven Spielberg was asked what his favorite comic book blockbusters are, and his answer may surprise you. Find out what Steven Spielberg’s favorite superhero movies are, after the jump.

Last year, /Film ranked the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so that means we’re allowed to wait a few more years before we’re due for a full and proper refreshment. But with Captain America: Civil War currently in theaters, we decided we had to rank something. This is the internet and this what you do on the internet.
So we put our heads together and cast top secret votes to determine the greatest superheroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After winnowing down the list or eligible characters to thirty names (anti-heroes, power-less sidekicks, and villains were ineligible, as was the cast of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. since almost no one on the crew watches it), we each ranked the heroes in order of preference. Those ranked higher were given a certain number of points. Those ranked lower received fewer points. Any ties were decided by a second round of voting.
And this is what we got. Feel free to express your polite disagreements and passionate opinions in the comments below.

Last month a rumor began to circulate that Disney was considering re-theming Disney California Adventure’s The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror ride into a Guardians of the Galaxy attraction. When the rumor hit, even though it was from a source that had been right many times in the past, I commented on Twitter that I just didn’t buy it. But sadly it seems like there may be truth to this rumor after all. I have since spoken to two separate sources who have corroborated the rumor, and a reliable Disney rumor site is now reporting it’s true. Find out the details on the Guardians of the Galaxy ride after the jump.
