Best Superhero Movies of the 21st Century

This is my list for the best superhero movies from 2000 to present.

The Top TenXW

1The Dark Knight

This movie tops our list for it's fantastic acting and storytelling. Christopher Nolan's top notch directing and storytelling is always complex and beautiful. Christian Bale and Heath Ledgers performances were one of the most perfessional, emotional, and visual you can barely get in a regular drama movie. This movie is oscar winner and winner of many other awards. This is not only one of the sequels to date but, it's one of the best movie period.

WOW I'm NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO AGREES WITH THIS or I am ;( #foreveralone

This is the best movie becuse health ledger destroys the acting and the batman of course aka bruce Wayne but this movie is so good the villain threatens the hero the hero threatens the villain best movie ever made better then the avengers

2The Avengers

Number 2 is this mega box office hit that nearly gave DC Comics a heart attack. It's not only a great story, it's also a action pact movie that will make shriek for more. It took years for this long awaited movie to come out. There was a lot of huge expectations for this movie that achieved every single one and then some. And who could forget the fight against Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America? NO ONE!

This is the best movie becuse it's a epic training scene and we learn how batman become the batman and its kinda cool batman figths his own master who trained him to become the batman/The dark knigth/


This movie started America's obsession with your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. They put Toby Maguire on the map but put the Green Gotham as one of the best Halloween costumes. It also made one of the best statements in history " With great power comes great responsibility. " This movie had a lot a heart and also was a better tour of New York then the actual busses.

14X-men: First Class

A First Class reboot in every sense of the word.


This movie made Thor seem cooler then everybody ever thought he would be. Following Marvels funny witty reputation, it turned this god into a guy chasing after Natalie Portman on earth. This movie also made Hemsworth into a household name. Thanks to this movie it showed people that the avenger's were coming closer.
