"Comic Books Unbound":

From superheroes to superstars, Hollywood has always turned to comic books for imagination and inspiration. Comic Books Unbound tracks the journey of comic books from page to screen, with special attention paid to the biggest blockbusters (see Spider-Man) and the biggest bombs (see Superman Returns). The film takes us behind famous franchises, such as the X-Men and Batman series, and features revealing interviews with Hollywood power players.
