Steven Spielberg may not be a fan of superhero films in general -- heck, the man has resisted every attempt to have him direct one in the past and has previously said the genre would go the same route the old Western did -- but that doesn't mean he doesn't like any of them. But there is one particular comic book movie that really impressed him. Can you guess which one?
Hint: It’s a Marvel film.
The legendary director revealed in an interview with Omelete that he’s actually a huge fan of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, helmed by James Gunn. This one was so excited about Spielberg’s endorsement that he posted it on his Twitter account with a translation of the original Spanish text.

There’s a good reason why Guardians of the Galaxy often tops those “best superhero movies” lists. Witnessing the cosmic shenanigans of the biggest idiots in the galaxy while they try to save it was a definite highlight from beginning to end. It was fun and -- most importantly -- it had heart.
How about you? Are you with Steven Spielberg on this one? Was Guardians of the Galaxy your favorite superhero movie?
