Top Ten DC Superhero Movies

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

The Top Ten

1 The Dark Knight The Dark Knight Product Image

The Joker was amazing but am I the only one who also liked Batman

This movie is the only DC movie that is realistic and almost as awesome as MARVEL movies are. The KNIGHT IS the only reason we still don't laugh t DC movies.

Can I just say Heath Ledger and everyone will understand why this is one the greatest films in cinema history? He gave his life for this performance. Now that's a hero.

It's the best movie simply because it's batman and batman is not only the worlds best detective but the best superhero and the amazing cast and christopher nolan as the director make this movie a solid 15/10!

2 The Dark Knight Rises The Dark Knight Rises Product Image

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.

The movie is hated on for no reason. It is a glorious finale

I thought it was good. I think it's a great finale for Nolan's trilogy. Bane was kind of weird though.

3 Batman Begins Batman Begins Product Image

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

First superhero movie I saw, absolutely loved it!

4 Batman Batman Product Image

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 Watchmen Product Image

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.

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

This is a very good movie if you look at it in the right way and if you like a deep story line.

6 Superman - The Movie Superman - The Movie Product Image

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

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

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

Hands-down my favorite superhero film ever.

7 Man of Steel Man of Steel Product Image

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 Wonder Woman Product Image

Gal gadot is hot! I'll let her do anything she wants to me, especially if it involves a bed

Wonder Woman is probably the most important film we need: For DC fans, for general audience, and for all the woman out there. The most satisfying film I've seen, and the most emotional. Really, the best.

I can understand why this film is low. It's because it's new. I think it's still in theaters. It's so awesome though you should all go and watch it.

Best dc movie in a long time you can tell they took there time with this one my second favorite super hero movie after captain America.

9 Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice Product Image

They could've done a better job with this film. They could've make Lex Luthor more mature. They could've left Doomsday out of it and saved him for a Superman Doomsday film. They could've made the fight with Superman and Batman longer and better choreographed. They could've had a better plot to the film. Frankly, this film wasn't all that bad, but all these aspects that have been left out ruined the experience.

This movie really is that bad.. 28% on rotten tomatoes..
People are trying to justify it by saying you have to "use your brain" to enjoy it, as if critics don't do that. I understood what the movie is trying to do, it just didn't do it well. It's one big mess, trying to shoehorn all these characters in just to set up justice league, trying too hard to be "dark and gritty" like Dark Knight, but unlike The Dark Knight, it did it very badly, and it ended up being a joyless movie. There's basically 5 movies in this movie, all of these stories were told badly because it's too much for one movie..
WB/DC should not try to rush to Justice League like this, just to try and compete with Marvel. If they just took their time, who knows how awesome this movie could have been.. It feels like such a waste of potential.

This movie does not at all deserve any of the crap that it receives. The only reason that critics hated it is because they thought it was too "dark" and "depressing" they did not look at it from the right perspective, it was set in a chaotic, corrupt storyline and background, it was meant to be that way. This movie was BADASS. Ben Affleck absolutely nailed it as Batman/Bruce Wayne (Him and Bale are without doubt the best batman actors to date) and the drama and story was dazzling. Although it did have its downsides, we all know that, (ex. Superman was too mopey most of the time, Lex was just plain out weird, and Doomsday was waay too soon) Beyond that though, it was overall a strong and entertaining movie and certainly got me excited for the upcoming Batfleck solo movies and of course, the Wonder Woman solo movie. Critics brutalized this movie for pathetic reasons. It deserves a second chance.

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.

10 Batman Returns Batman Returns Product Image

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 Contenders

11 V for Vendetta V for Vendetta Product Image

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!

This should be on top#5

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

12 Superman II Superman II Product Image

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!

13 Batman: Mask of Phantasm Batman: Mask of Phantasm Product Image

Engaging, tear jerky and good

This one should be #1

IT'S GOTTA BE THE BEST DC MOVIE OF ALL TIME UNTIL 2017's JUSTICE LEAGUE!

the best

14 Suicide Squad Suicide Squad Product Image

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

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.

Suicide Squad is awesome

15 Joker (2019)

The best one along with The Dark Knight.

Joaquin and Heath are the best Jokers

Should be after the dark knight trilogy

This should be #2 after Dark Knight

Truly a gem

16 Superman Returns Superman Returns Product Image

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 Justice League: Doom Justice League: Doom Product Image

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

18 Green Lantern Green Lantern Product Image

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

I actually really liked this movie!

Actually Batman and Robin made more money than this film

Next episode

19 Shazam!

so cool especially when all brothers and sis of belly transformed

Stupid, funny, but stupid. Still a better experience than every movie beyond the dark knight.

Finally a lighter and more comedic tone to the DCEU. The story was great, Zachary Levi as Shazam was awesome, and it was a great callback to classic 80s kids films like Big and Goonies.

Best super hero movie after dark night

20 Aquaman Aquaman Product Image

Best dc movie in my opinion better than the dark knight

Better than Batman begins

Fantastic movie

One of the Best DC movie of all-time! the visual is epic and stunning!

21 Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox Product Image

This movie is one of the best in animated movie...great emotions

This was good. I liked DC Knights Green Arrow more

Suicide squad is awful

I loves this movie it was great!

22 Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo Product Image

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

THIS SHOULD BE IN THE TOP THREE

23 Constantine Constantine Product Image

The best show

24 Superman II - The Richard Donner Cut Superman II - The Richard Donner Cut Product Image
25 Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam Product Image
