The problem with most comic book films is that they feel like they "have to" kill the villain by the end, especially if they're trying to establish a franchise. There are only so many characters that would transfer to the screen well, you know?
Well I think when it comes to DC heroes you are right. There weren't that many interesting characters so you sort of have to use for example the same 6-8 Batman villians.

However with Marvel there tends to be tons of villians that never make it on to the screen but should. With X-Men alone we never saw the Sentinels, Apocalypse, Mr. Sinister, Onslaught and so on.

Ra's al Ghul, Scarecrow, and Falcone and his mob were all new to any Batman film, I think some people forget that. The next one's gonna have Scarecrow for a bit, The Joker, and Two-Face; I also read that the third one may have The Riddler or Catwoman. I have no qualms with any of that, if the next one's good.

Right, the villains in Marvel Comics travel more freely between characters, too. Superman has Lex Luthor and Zod... maybe Braniac and Darkseid, that's about it. I can't think of anymore DC guys.

I hope this epic Spidey 4/5 combo sets up The Sinister Six or something.

Personally, I do think the first half is quite a good deal stronger than the second. But then not much is going to top Rowena's Theme for me, really.

Mr. Freeze
Scarecrow
Man-Bat

Plus the mob villains were pretty cool. That's just off the top of my head.
Spider-man, Fantastic Four, Iron Man, the X-Men and so on had much more quality villians.
