At Cannes Steven Spielberg gave an interview with the French website Omelete to promote his B.F.G movie from Disney.

With Super Hero movie hype all over the planet of course they asked him what his favorite Super Hero movie was, and here is what the director of my childhood had to say.

“I like the  Superman of Richard Donner, the  Dark Knight , Christopher Nolan, and the first  Iron Man , but superhero film that impressed me most is one that does not take itself too seriously:  Guardians of the Galaxy . when his projection was over, I left with the feeling of having seen something new in movies, without any cynicism or fear of being dark when needed.”
“There is a difference between heroes and superheroes. The hero is an ordinary person who is faced with a serious fact and acts to modify it. A hero is a person who, walking down the street, see a car on fire and runs help the person who is in the driver’s seat, attached to the seat belt to loosen. Super-hero is a person who, on the same scene, would fly to the car and try to turn it upside down and shake it using his super strength , until the driver is released. I identify more with the first example. Film of everyday heroes.”
Honestly with movies like E.T., Close Encounters of the Third Kind, along with the Indiana Jones movies I can’t say I’m surprised by Spielberg’s pick, after all, Spielberg’s greatest hits (in my opinion) are from the 80’s, which Guardians uses a lot to influence from.  Also I feel James Gunn used a lot of inspiration of Indiana Jones for Star Lord.
Of course like everyone else this makes me wonder what a Steven Spielberg directed Super Hero movie would look like.  Honestly, I’d like to seem him take on the Fantastic Four, this is a hard movie to nail down apparently, but I think Spielberg with his imagination and his heart could nail it down.
What do you think dear reader, which super hero saga would you like to see Steven Spielberg take on, let us know in the comments below.
