Top Ten Comic Book Movies

There have been plenty of great comic book movies but which one will take the cake as #1.

The Top TenXW

1The Dark Knight

This is so far the best comic book movie. It shows the rest of the world why us fanboys love the characters we read about so much. It's more than just guys in suits fighting each other. It's high drama with character driven plots.

This shouldn't even be a competition. The dark knight is one of the best movies of all time. The acting, the plot, the atmosphere, everything is exceptional.

I hate the fact that people compare THE DARK KNIGHT with the AVENGERS. the comparison itself is invalid. the performances given by the actors in THE DARK KNIGHT is just amazing. hats off to Heath "The Legend" Ledger.

Best movie of all time... best movie in general

2The Avengers

What? Number 23! Are you kidding me! Although I don't think this is a better movie than the Dark Knight it was a boatload more fun! Dark Knight trilogy was more serious but this one was way more fun. Easily the best comic book movie and movie of ALL time.

I would not consider this movie to be better than The Dark Knight but it is so entertaining and still maintains the spirit of the Comic books.

I though Avengers was great, why is it so far down on the list?

This got me into superheroes

We had to wait decades but finally it came along and blew us away. Good casting at the time, brilliant effects and a storyline not to different to alienate a true fan. Its pedigree can't be disputed and it just comes across so well that you forget its a super hero movie. Should be number 1

This movie was AWESOME. It isn't as good compared to the amazing spider man but I still think it was a great movie. If you've never watched this movie than you should give it a try. It may surprise you.

I love this movie is better than Dark Knight.

Yes my all time favorite movie

4The Dark Knight Rises

Truly interesting story with many amazing plot twists PLUS Bane and Talia Al Ghul!

Terrible movie. I have never seen a movie with so many plot holes. Not to mention the lack of Batman and boring as snot.

The Dark Knight should be #1 but this trash shouldn't even be ranked!

5Guardians of the Galaxy

How on Terra is this number nineteen!?

I voted Avengers but would change my vote to this if I took the time to scroll down.

The best superhero movie of all time. Michael Keaton's performance as batman is SPECTACULAR. - LightningRider

7Batman Begins
8Spider Man 2

Not sure why the 2002 'Spider-Man' movie is listed above this one, since I remember virtually everyone saying how they felt that this movie bettered its predecessor in mostly every way. This one is probably my favourite superhero movie, still, even after 12 years. - BKAllmighty

This movie is FREAKY! A few years ago my dad took me to see it, and then just as it started I said "I don't wanna do this anymore"!

This is not only the best comic book movie, but possibly the best movie of all time

Spider-man 2 is the best

Fantastic alternate superhero film with a dark storyline

Definitely an underrated film and glad that's in the top ten - idontknow

I am a huge watchmen fan. I would describe how amazing this movie is, but I will end up typing the entire story - Jonerman

Watch The Motion Comic Or Read The Book

The Contenders

11Iron ManV1 Comment
12X2 - X-Men United

Though I voted for DOFP, this is in fact the best ever X-Movie, maybe the best comic book movie ever. - KnutHudson

13Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Seriously! This has got to be Marvel's answer to Dark Knight. The cast is great, action sequences are beyond Dark Knight's and the plot is far better than Spiderman's. Sure the writing may be a little awkward if think about it long enough(nitpicking) but this movie deserves the top spot

Really great performances by Evans and johannsen, great action, great story, all around pretty great movie

Why is this masterpiece so low on the list
Definitively one of the best, if not, the best Marvel movie to date

14Sin City

Dark, Brooding and Jessica Alba makes it a whole lot better. - LightningRider

15The Amazing Spider-Man
17Batman Returns

I like this movie because they show you how catwoman became who she is now. It also has a messed up villain in the movie. A Funny and serious movie

18X-Men: Days of Future Past

This one is probably this far down on the list on account of it coming out fairly recently, got my vote to hopefully push it up a few spots (at least past Barb Wire laugh out loud) - KnutHudson

This is by far the best X-Men film, while it's in my top 3, at least it deserves to be in the top ten - idontknow

Holy Bajeesus. Everything you need in not just a comic movie, but a movie in general. Absolute masterpiece.

19X-Men: First Class

Vivid, heartbreaking and leaves you asking questions.

20Batman: Mask of Phantasm

Best Superhero movie of all time! This makes the Dark Knight look like children's programing!
