Which theme song is better:1978 Superman or 1989 Batman?

Both themes are both awesome but also so different from each other. Which do you like better?

Hard one! I would have to go with Superman theme, In my mind (No puns intended) I could see Superman go into action. :slight_smile:

Superman’s theme is in my head. I think I bought the soundtrack.

I will have to watch Batman to hear his theme. I am not sure what it is.

I just played the beginning of Batman to hear the theme. Very stirring. Glad to have the movie back.

Still like Superman theme better.

I think 89 Batman holds up a lot better, but thats because it had the benfit of releasing 11 years later. Just basee on which one I’d rather watch, I’d say Batman 89

Can’t choose for this one, as I love them both. One thing I’ll say though, is that to me, they’re both perfect embodiments of the heroes they were created for. Very well-suited for each. :slight_smile:

I’m not quite sure how this is a question… I figured Superman would be the definitive answer. Almost everyone in the planet knows that theme the moment it goes on. Batman’s is nowhere near as iconic.

The question wasn’t about which is more iconic though. It’s which is the one we find better and well it was never going to be one sided in opinions regarding either song

Batman’s has more familiarity due to the Lego Series, portion of it in Batman TAS, and recent films, but I prefer Superman’s more, although from Lego Batman 2 on, and some adaptations, his theme has appeared.

The old Superman theme was just the Star Wars theme with a few notes rearranged.

Nah I don’t hear it but even if so, the star wars theme is amazing too

They are both great, but the Superman theme is better and-- more importantly–it’s iconic.
