Best Superhero Movies of All Time

The Top Ten

1 The Dark Knight The Dark Knight

"Because he's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Knight. " - Gordon - BKAllmighty

I am a Marvel fanboy but The Dark Knight will always be the greatest, most epic and most haunting of all superhero movies. Truly mind-blowing. Kudos to Christopher Nolan, Christian Bale, Heath Ledger and a flawless cast and crew for crafting the finest of all superhero movies and also, one of the greatest movies ever made.

An amazing movie, a great story, a superb cast and the Oscar for Heath is icing on the cake. The fact that the hero and the primary villain do not have any actual superpowers doesn't even matter as we watch their battle for control of Gotham rage on for a captivating 2 1/2 hours. The Joker is finally defeated in the end but the hero pays a stiff price in order to protect his city.

It was the best Superhero movie created.

2 The Avengers

It was a great movie, the best of marvel. It's actors were great, and the cap/iron man feud kept you watching. It was not only great in terms of action, but the development of the characters was beautiful too.

Beast
Should be at the top of the list in my opinion.
Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye, Black widow

The dark night is better but my brother made me vote for this. VOTE DARK NIGHT

DC sucks at making hero's and movies marvel on the other hand can kick some serious ass

3 The Dark Knight Rises The Dark Knight Rises

This one should definitely be in the top 3... An epic conclusion to the most amazing trilogy ever...

It's plain awesome and the end when you find out the one detective is robin and batman survives the atomic bomb and I never guessed cat woman kills bane so if that's not awesome enough then you got to see it for your self

This movie was terrible. How did Bruce find Selina in Gotham again? Why did he trust her considering she did nothing but steal from him, betray him, threaten him that a storm was coming and Bruce still trusted her implicitly. Terrible film on every level. Bane and Batman fought like two drunken brawlers. People who like this film are not true Batman fans. How can a little girl make a jump a bunch of full grown men can't make, one of which is suppose to be the worlds greatest athlete?

I think people saying it's a bad movie are right

4 Guardians of the Galaxy

This film was so funny. The cast was great and I think the the best movie of 2014.

Very surprising to me and very fun to watch. Definitely watch this movie. - TheLastSiren

This may not be close to the comics at all but the acting and action is great. It's also really funny. It should be on the top 3.

Worst superhero movie ever
Weird plot not so funny jokes and awfully overrated
I decided to watch this movie after knowing its positive reviews but it was so bad

5 Batman Begins Batman Begins

Why do we fall? So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

Complex yet simple origin story

6 Iron Man Iron Man

Well, more realistic superhero than Batman, I think. He's not the one who'll get upset if the city bank is robbed, he won't run after the thief who snatched the purse(like spider man), but he will definitely save the world when needed the most. He won't get too sentimental while putting his life on line (remember the avengers). He doesn't fear that his superhero identity will cost the people closest to him(Just think of a Batman, always fearful of getting exposed). He creates trouble, he solves trouble. He will break his own morals if needed (not like batman, who let others die for his secret). And of course, coolest actor portraying the coolest character, he is simply the best.

Cocky, Badass, Super rich, Billionaire, Style, Class, GENIUS ETC... Tell me which movie had that? Closest movie to it would be The Dark Knight.

Very very good superhero movie

7 Spiderman 2 Spiderman 2

How is this not in the top 10?! It should be at least number 3, it's still the best film in the series to date!

Great movie but I honestly think that it's better than the first Spiderman film

Interesting. Would have sworn that everyone loved this movie more than the first Spider-Man. - BKAllmighty

I love this movie and I think it should be number 1

8 Captain America: Civil War

The Best Pure Superhero Movie EVER!. This Movie has kicked DC fans right on their ASS!

I think the dark knight deserves 1st spot... But in my opinion this one is at least top 3, I'm not sure if I like this one or avengers more, but I believe this one should definitely be higher on this list, top 5 at the very least. This movie was great!

The dark knight might be my favorite superhero movie but this is my favorite marvel film and the superhero movie that every time I talk or think about it, I want to watch it again.

The superhero movie had EVERYTHING: great story, unparalleled action, and effects!

9 Spiderman Spiderman

a superb adaptation of the web hero - MatrixGuy

It is no wonder the best superhero flic ever.
Should be at the top spot.

The coolest superhero, your friendly neibhour Spiderman, it is the best superhero movie and it felt so real, Spiderman is not only the best superhero movie but also my favourite superhero

When I went to New York on vacations I couldn't help but watching up to the high skyscrapers and buildings there and wait/wonder for spider man to appear. Such a close superhero, nothing compares to the friendly neighbor. Like..never. Pd: I was 21 back then. Yeah I guess even adults want him to exist. How can a hero be more epic?

10 Captain America: The Winter Soldier Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Captain america is by far my favorite hero and the move is just pure awesomeness

This movie had serious balls to step away from Marvel's usual "let's make it fun" thing. Great villain, great cast, great story. - TheLastSiren

Are you joking this movie was amazing Hail Hydra

Good movie, so violent though. The scene changes are explosions. - MojoSpaederman

The Newcomers

? Deadpool Deadpool

My new favorite superhero movie. This breaks all the rules and doesn't have a dull moment in the entire movie plus it is hilarious and irreverent. Awesome.

The funniest superhero movie yet and the second best only behind The Dark Knight.

Not only is this the best superhero movie, I think it's one of, if not, THE best action movie out there

Deserves number one. It has everything you want

The Contenders

11 Batman Batman

Tim Burton defined the approach of Batman. It is much closer to the comics than the Dark Knight trilogy and Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson are perfect as Batman and The Joker. This should be #1.

Because it's one of the most influential superhero films ever made, a classic, and a masterpiece.

Who said an old movie with almost no special effects can be good? I did

12 X-Men: Days of Future Past

I Just Watched this film, It will go into the top ten soon! Whilst it is not better than the Dark Knight. It is personally better that the others

X men days of future past was best x men to date the early movies are this was best one the character are good it can funny and dark in the story.

Just watched this. Very very good movie.

Messed up every other movie hard.

13 X2 - X Men United X2 - X Men United

Seriously? X2 is the best X-Men movie other than The Wolverine. It should be at least Top 10 and at no means under Daredevil.

14 X-Men: First Class X-Men: First Class

Why did I have to be the first person to post this one on here?! Lets at least get this one in the top 15!

This is the second best X-men movie after X-men: Days of Future/Past. It should be higher and Professor-X and The Beast are awesome in it.

2nd best superhero film after batman begins

15 Iron Man 3 Iron Man 3

So the best, the effort put into this film is amazing

I thought Iron Man 1 was better, but this is my second favorite Iron Man movie

This sucks. It is not bad but it shouldn't be in the top ten

Now this is what I call a good movie

16 The Avengers: Age of Ultron

Good, but could have been better.

17 X-Men X-Men

This is my favorite superhero franchise, but I think that the later movies were much better than the first one.

The best super hero movie ever ps this is my opinion and this is a girl talking.

18 Man of Steel Man of Steel

I love this movie. I don't understand why everyone hates it, and at the end battle between Superman and Sod ZOD is the one throwing him through buildings and punching him through cars and blasting buildings with his heat vision. And Superman TRIED to take the battle into space to avoid destruction, but ZOD was the one who punched him through a satellite and brought it back to earth. And the soundtrack was just amazing. And Henry Cavill is the best Superman ever. And so was Amy Adams as Lois Lane and Michael Shannon as Zod and Russell Crowe as Jor-El. And the plot was awesome and (Spoiler Alert) the scene where Superman has to kill Zod HE TRIED TO AVOID IT BUT ZOD WAS GOING TO KILL INNOCENT PEOPLE WHY DO YOU HATE SUPERMAN FOR SAVING INNOCENT PEOPLE? All the action was completely awesome and the plot was so entertaining. I loved the first 20 minutes on Krypton. I loved the scattered flashbacks to Clark's life on Earth. They always seemed to be in the perfect places. This movie is ...more

Absolutely badass and hugely entertaining. Fantastic action and soundtrack. One of the greatest!

Visually beautiful, epic soundtrack, great story and amazing protagonist and antagonist, this movie deserves to be in the top ten. I don't understand why it is so underrated!

So what if he destroys half of Metropolis? This is the Superman I know and love, not some PG red-undies 1978 Superman. This is one of my favorites of DC, which is saying something because I like Marvel WAYYY more than DC. Although it might be that because I am a superman fan. - TheLastSiren

19 The Amazing Spider-Man The Amazing Spider-Man

A much more faithful adaptation of the comic book hero. While Tobey Maguire captured Peter's loneliness and social inadequacy, he failed to capture Spider-Man's enduring spirit through his wise-cracks. There wasn't enough attitude that is an integral part of Spider-Man's character and that's what Andrew Garfield captured. Plus the genius level intellect was much better explored in this film. A much more satisfying adaptation of Spider-Man.

So much better than the original three, especially three.
I'm also surprised Spider-Man (2002) was voted above this AND Spider-Man 2 (2004).

This movie sucks its nowhere near as good as the other superhero movies on this list this should get knocked down all the way to the depths of the list

Spider man the boss
