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

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.

This movie really set the groundwork for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DCEU. People have tried to replicate the beauty of this film, but it hasn't worked. This film will remain timeless for generations to come and Heath Ledger's performance is fantastic. Everybody's performance is fantastic Seriously, if you haven't seen this movie, then that's a complete shame. You have to go see this.

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!

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.

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.

An epic conclusion to the most amazing trilogy ever. This is definitely the 2nd best dc movie after The Dark Knight.. So vote guyzz...

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.

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

Great movie even the trilogy deserves ten out of ten rating

The best if the bat trilogy. Most realistic superhero movie EVER!

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.

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

This is not tbe best superhero film, it is the best FILM ever. I respect other people's opinion, even if they are wrong.

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.

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.

Incredible, but Even though, the director of one of my favorite movies, 300 I still wasn't sure with the idea of an R-rated DC movie, but somehow, it was actually a masterpiece excellent film!

6 Superman - The Movie Superman - The Movie Product Image

Awesome film! It's even better than TDK. For 1978, the special effects were outstanding! Reeve is perfect as Superman. Great film. I Love the soundtrack! Superman 2 is good too. However, I don't reccomend watching 3 or 4.

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.

How can be in number 6..
While it is the 2nd best dc movie ever,

7 Man of Steel Man of Steel Product Image

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.

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.

Honestly this should be first. This movie has the best soundtrack ever, an amazing story, and just look at the cover I mean who doesn't like a dark superman! this movie is in my top movies ever as well... I didn't really like The Dark Knight much though lol. I like batman better than superman but The Man Of Steel is way on top!

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

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.

Most new dc movies are terrible but this is great also I love gal gadot. Throwback to when she was in the fast and furious movies which I love.

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

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.

This movie was so bad it could be one of the worst movies of from 2000-present. The movie was so bad there are even unecessary scenes in the movie that made the movie bore. The Ultimate showdown between Batman and Superman was enough to keep a movie great, and the Doomsday fight scene was horrible. The Warehouse Rescue was the best scene that Batman did. (If only Superman didn't suck that much, Man Of Steel Superman vs. General Zod could have been the best). So dissapointing. Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and Jesse Eisenberg were terrible. Good thing Gal Gadot or Amy Adams did not get a razzie or else Batman v Superman would be a big flop. I felt bored in the movie thinking it was a 4hr movie wasting time. And why can't Christian Bale return? He's so much better than Ben Affleck wasting time to make things worse. Casey Affleck in Manchester By The Sea did a good job, he even won best actor. This movie sucked so badly. And I'd agree that this film had one of the most razzie wins this year ...more

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.

10 Batman Returns Batman Returns Product Image

It is a disgusting atrocity that this movie ranks below BvS. It is one of the most well humored and balanced superhero films ever.

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

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

Loved the portrayals of penguin and batman

The Contenders
11 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!

12 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!

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

This should be on top#5

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!

14 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

No1 please

15 Suicide Squad Suicide Squad Product Image

It's literally so great oh my god. Well-developed characters, and variety, diverse cast, and more!

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

The Movie can be enjoyable but the story, villains, and plot are really bad.

Awesome, has a bunch of DC villains including Joker and Harley Quinn

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.

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 Aquaman Aquaman Product Image

Best dc movie in my opinion better than the dark knight

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

Better than Batman begins

1 one

19 Green Lantern Green Lantern Product Image

I thoroughly enjoyed this well paced, entertaining depiction of my second favorite 1960s comic book superhero. Batman was No. 1.

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

Actually Batman and Robin made more money than this film

I actually really liked this movie!

20 Shazam!

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.

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

Best super hero movie after dark night

Amazing movie

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

22 Batman: Under the Red Hood Batman: Under the Red Hood Product Image
