Top Ten DC Superhero Movies

The ten best movies based on superheros from the DC Universe.

The Top Ten

1 The Dark Knight

First superhero movie I've ever watched and still amazing ever since

Favorite superhero movie! - TheGrayDude55

Between this, Iron Man or Wall-E (all of which came out in 2008), this was the best one of that year. - codgtamk34

I mean, how can you hate this movie

2 The Dark Knight Rises

Greatest superhero movie of all time

Should be #1. Way better than the dark knight - SimeOh

I think The Dark Knight Rises is best batman film because it was a different storyline. My favourite batman film are The Dark Knight Rises then The Dark Knight then Batman Begins then Batman then Batman Returns then Batman Forever last I think it was worst batman film is Batman & Robin because plot is too simple and I think George Clooney didn't suit role of batman/Bruce Wayne brcause he can't act.

Epic conclusion to one of the most complex and well-made film trilogies of all time. Not only the greatest DC movie ever, but the greatest Superhero movie ever and one of my personal favourite films.

3 Batman Begins

First superhero movie I saw, absolutely loved it!

Batman Begins is simply the comic book movie, at least of the Nolverse trilogy. The Dark Knight is an incredible cinematic piece of perfection, but it can't be defined as the perfect comic book movie. Batman Begins sure comes close to that description. It not only showed the beginning of Batman, but also the early development and struggles. It was a cinematic Year One, from the perspective of Bruce rather than Gordon. Bringing in villains like Scarecrow, Ra's, and the entire League of Assassins (Shadows in the comics) was great, and despite the mispronunciation of the name Ra's, they were fairly accurate. As we're many other aspects of the film, which make it the best DC, and arguably the best superhero movie, to date.

Great movie even the trilogy deserves ten out of ten rating

LOve all Batman Movies But I think Batman Begins should be #2 and the dark knight rise should be #3

4 Batman

I don't think there is a better super hero movie than this. It's Not only my favourite super hero film, but it's my favourite movie ever.

Michael Keaton is the best batman and far superior to the one in batman the dark knight who always sounded ridiculous

This was a GREAT movie. All the actors were really talented, such as Jack Nicholson as Joker.

Love the movie great acting good not the best sound effects and a little bit more fighting

5 Watchmen

I do agree with # 1

Dark Knight was very crisp, well organized, entertaining and intense

but Watchmen! This movie just a masterpiece.

I agree with one of person who commented that this was an impossible comic book adaptation

but when you see the final product it satisfies you deeply.

every hero has his own place, screen time and impact.

every character, be it Rorschach (my favorite! ), Dr. Manhatten, comedian, night owl and who can forget ozymendias had their own views and visions

each so correct and meaningful but at the same time incomplete and wrong.

loved this one from bottom of my heart.

This one's a masterpiece adapted from a comic book of same name and so complex that making a movie on it should be appreciated. A better team up than the on screen justice league and also avengers. Rorshack was my favourite in this.

I admit that the dark knight is a little better but, Batman movies have been done hundreds of times, Watchmen was accualy consitered the impossible comic to be made a movie. Also the director of the dark knight was by the director of inception so that's a big advantage and the director of watchmen is Zach Snyder and he has done very few movies. But they all have been epic and almost all have been good.

I agree this film has been pushed around too much. This movie is good and I don't care what you say you miming

6 Superman - The Movie

Obviously better than Dark Knight.
This classical movie is best DC movie ever.

Richard Pryor though man, it was hilarious and had a great plot.

This film is an instant classic. Second to Dark Knight.

Hands-down my favorite superhero film ever.

7 Man of Steel

Such an incredible film. This is the Superman movie I've been waiting for so long! One of my all time favorites now. Everything is handled beautifully here. Snyder's brilliant direction, Zimmer's awesome soundtrack (one of his all-time best) and the excellent performances from everyone. It's so damn amazing, I can go on forever about MoS.

Man of Steel is amazing! It doesn't deserve all the crap it gets. Sure, there are some flaws, but people need to understand that no movie is perfect. This had amazing visuals, soundtrack, acting, and it delivered a very realistic alien invasion. And this film gave us the superhero action that everybody has been waiting for. I can literally watch this movie over and over for hours! Truly an amazing movie, one of my all time favorites.

It's amazing. The people who hate it are the same guys who say Superman is overpowered and Aquaman is useless and Batman can beat anybody. I think you'll like it better if you like action (and Superman, of course) a lot.

This movie is the best. All the haters that say Superman destroyed too much stuff are wrong, Zod was the one who did that. Great soundtrack, visual effects, and acting. Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, and Russell Crowe were excellent.

8 Wonder Woman

It may not be number 1 for everyone, but it is for me. Absolutely fantastic. - codgtamk34


I thought Wonder Woman was overrated - SimeOh

9 Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice

Okay, what? Lex Luthor is terrible in this and everything is just one big mess! Batman and Superman only teamed up because their MOMS HAVE THE SAME FIRST NAME.

Would have been better if Batman just killed Superman and got it over with. - RyanSmith123014

I really did not like this movie I was excited to see it in theaters and it was kinda a disappointment, but then again it is DC - Dandeman7

This movie is awful! - TheGrayDude55

Umm What - SimeOh

10 Batman Returns

One of the best Batman films ever. Penguin was awesome.

Pfeiffer and DeVito in a Batman Movie directed by Tim Burton- need I say more?

Loved the portrayals of penguin and batman

Batman Returns has the best Catwoman.

The Newcomers

? Supergirl
? Batman: The Movie

The Contenders

11 Superman II

Remember, along with Superman 1 and the Keaton/Nicholson Batman. This film popularized what became the film industries biggest grossing genre. Chris Reeves WAS Clark Kent and the Superman!

12 V for Vendetta

This should be on top#5

I'm a big fan of batman and green arrow, but we must tell the truth v for vendetta send us messages, it talks in our minds about something true, about freedom, people, governments, terrors and the plans of every guy That is bigger than us. V for vendetta is the best movie here and of course the dark night is second

How is it this low? Should be at least 5th!

Should be 2 or Mabey 3 too dark knight and batman begins

13 Batman: Mask of Phantasm

Engaging, tear jerky and good

This one should be #1


the best

14 Suicide Squad

Why does the Joker talk with a mouth full of marbles the whole time? - Xean45

Awful movie - RyanSmith123014

This movie is a disgrace. It shouldn't be on this list...

I love this film, it is one of my favorite movies of 2016. And it is one of the best films of 2016.

15 Justice League: Doom

This movie is by far the best, I mean, don't get me wrong, but, THE MAIN GOD DAMN CHARSCTER IS BATMAN DAMN IT!

16 Superman Returns

This movie is better than Green Lantern so it deserves the number 10 spot because Green Lantern was one of the worst super hero films ever. I'll say it was as bad as Batman and Robin.

Huge Letdown!

17 Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo


I love it but to be honest the Dark Knight was better


18 Green Lantern

Next episode

I thought it was fine, but I understand why people hate it.

This is a great film, only thing bad about this is that his suit is all done with cgi :(

It sucked that's insulting dawn of justice isn't ahead

22 Batman: Under the Red Hood

I love Jason Todd, he is my favorite Robin!

23 Batman Beyond: The Return of the Joker
24 Justice League

Oh my god this movie was BAD. Aquaman was a complete joke, Batman went OUT OF CHARACTER AND KILLED PEOPLE, flash tried his ass off to be SpiderMan from the MCU, this movie just BLOWS. I'd rather watch Batman vs Superman again - RyanSmith123014

I Don't understand whats so wrong with this movie. sure, the villain is forgettable, and it did seemed a little rushed, but the story was solid. I mean, come on, they mad Aquaman cool!


I don't know how people don't like the movie it was a good movie and probably the last Jedi is the best movie ever
