Top Ten Most Epic Superhero Movies

With Avenger's: Endgame soon coming out on April 26th of 2019, which we are just a week from, I thought I should do a list now that kinda suited it. I predict this movie is going to be very epic, so I will make a top ten most epic superhero movies list. With that being said, here is it.

The Top Ten

1 Avengers: Endgame

Endgame was hands down the best superhero movie I've ever watched in my life. It was sad, heartwarming, the fight scenes were amazing, and the characters were lovable. If you haven't seen it yet, I advise you to. - RosalinaX

A magnificent combination of emotion, humour, action, loss, and elation. Just about managed to avoid spoilers and I'm glad. Probably the best superhero movie ever (except possibly Black Panther or some of the earlier classics).

Obvious choice

Best movie I had ever seen keep me waiting for next avengers movie like other movies

2 Avengers: Infinity War

Obviously. I don't need to say much about this one. It's the movie that all the previous movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe were setting up for. After nearly twenty movies of introducing tons and tons of characters to set up this "final" battle, this movie was released. And it's definitely so far the most epic marvel movie that I so far have seen. With all the battles and intensity and the climax, this one is high up on the list. - darthvadern

I know Endgame has come out and that movie is quite epic as well but there's just something so well done about infinity war that I am not able to really get over it. I think the action scenes were good and really showed what Thanos was capable of and the ending did really well to subvert expectations.
An excellent movie and in my opinions still a lot better than Endgame, which had too many pacing issues(still an excellent farewell to the Avengers)

We wouldn't have Endgame without Infinity War, so there's that. The movie set up the mission and the plot very nicely. - RosalinaX

I seen Avengers: Endgame yesterday and wasn't it a great way to end the MCU! Avengers Infinity War was the first time anyone has seen the superheroes lose, which is the only thing that made Avengers: Endgame good, they had to bring back 50% of the worlds population! If the Avengers had won, we A) wouldn't need Endgame and B) Wouldn't have been such a good movie! This is the first time in Movie history where our heroes lost and half of them are either dead or in the Soul World! The movie is so iconic, unpredictable, greatly acted and has such great CGI, how could it not be number 1? - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

3 The Dark Knight

Yes. Dark.
This film will be dislodged from its number one position with other overrated, media-hyped movies. There are classic films down there which ought to be in the top ten, however, they are not popular and voters, of course, tend to vote for the one they watched. Epic? Well...

Dark Knight and Endgame are really close together for me... but I think Infinity War is super overrated.

The Dark Knight is better than Endgame and Infinity war multiplied to the power of endgame's sales. - Kalividous

It is almost a peRfectly made movie good movie. The otheR movies come close though.

4 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

I love how it's a one shot story so you don't need to watch any other film to appreciate it. It looks good, it's funny, there is a lot of heart, was a real tear jerker, had great action, and was a great unintentional good bye gift for Stan Lee. You couldn't make a better Spider-Man film. - EvanWellens

Very touching movie

It's a very imaginative and creative film. The visuals were stunning as well. It definitely deserves the praise and the acclaim it gets. - Misfire

I LOVED this movie, but to be honest, maybe it should not be above Captain America: The Winter Solider.

5 Wonder Woman

Yeah in my sorta surprising but yet not so surprising opinion this movie just easly takes the first spot on the list. It's one of my favourite movies of all time, and one of my favourite DC movies of all time, as it juts nails everything. Yeah the beginning is sorta slow and boring but it quickly gets better and better. Tons of character development, nothing is rushed, and it's gloriously epic. This movie knows how to be epic. The soundtrack really helps it as it feels so heroic just listening to it, and included in one of the best final battles ever, it just becomes glorious. Aside from the final battle, the other battles and action scenes are pretty awesome as well. So this one's at the top for me. - darthvadern

The first time we had a superhero movie made about a female and they pulled off something great! This movie is probably what inspired Marvel to turn Captain Marvel into a women and Ghost from Ant-man and the Wasp into a women! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

See, I accept I am a Marvel fan but I always try to see the positive in DCEU movies too, but Wonder Woman had a little disappointment in it. Still a good movie. - TriggerTrashKid

What I tried to watch this but fell asleep in the middle and indidnt really find it interesting.

6 Marvel's The Avengers

It was a pretty great movie, mainly involving the introduction of the 'Avengers Initiative' and the original 6 Avengers. Also, in the post credit scene, the introduction of a magenta-pink Thanos, though he turned the color of a grape as the movies went on! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

7 Guardians of the Galaxy

My favorite of them all - codgtamk34

The old music and humor in this movie are just the best! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

It is the best

My absolute favorite, kind of for older audiences, that’s one of the reasons I love it so much. Rocket is amazing, too. The characters are so unique and the plot is amazing, I hope they make a 3rd one!

8 Iron Man

This should be higher. It was then movie that started everything! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

Where the MCU began, and best final line in a movie - TriggerTrashKid

9 Captain America: The Winter Soldier

The only really epic movie of the captain america series. The First Avenger was a boring and not too exciting and Civil War was mainly just messed up and confusing. This is the only good one, and the only quite epic one. Very emotional movie and good climax and the final battle and battles overall really got me hooked up. - darthvadern

The best in the Captain America trilogy. - Misfire

Get this ahead of that stupid black panther snooze fest

Get this ahead of boring incredibles - Dvafan2

10 The Incredibles

Great movie. Even adults can enjoy this movie since it contains mature jokes that kids won't understand. - RogerMcBaloney

They did this for the kids because Marvel and DC, though they don't do it often, contains a little swearing! Though it was animated, it is arguably one of the best superhero movies ever! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

A kid would call this the most epic movie in their opinion. I wouldn't blame them, I mean it really is epic and used to be pixar's most epic movie. Incredibles 2 has taken that title for now but no one forgets this one. All the battle scenes and seeing the family working togheter is great in my honest opinion. - darthvadern

Awesome movie.Should be in 1st place.

The Newcomers

? Spider-Man: Far From Home

The Contenders

11 Black Panther

This movie was so diverse and open I could tell that marvel was trying to be open minded while making the film

Best superhero movie ever.

A bit overrated, honestly. But it's still good, I must say. - Misfire

Best movie no contest.

12 Thor: Ragnarock

Anything by marvel is good

This movie was so EPIC! - 23MACCAja

Duh, obviously. It's "ragnarok". The doom of asgard. How can that not be epic? While it's not actually as dark as you might think due to the massive amount of humour and jokes that are generally pretty good in my opinion I gotta say that the stuff that's epic, truly is epic. Like the final battle for example. That's some pretty good stuff I must say. And the character of Hela, has tons of epic moments as well. - darthvadern

The reason for more Thor movies. - Akuseru

13 Shazam!

I was hoping this would be on the list! I've seen it twice in the theaters, and it's definitely one of my favorite movies now! SHAZAM!

The acting was weak in a few places but still good - TriggerTrashKid

Haven't seen it yet but it's on my list of films to see. - codgtamk34

great show

14 Logan

How is this movie so low? That opening scene where Logan massacres a bunch of car jackers and cuts a dudes arm off with it's finger on the trigger causing a bullet to hit another dude in the leg should put up at the top 10 at LEAST! - EvanWellens

This movie should be in top 3 with Avengers Infinity War and The Dark Knight

Top 3 please - TriggerTrashKid

15 Batman: Under the Red Hood
16 Superman (1978)

It made us believe a man could fly, and that Clark Kent really could fool everyone! We wouldn't have many superhero movies today if not for this proving it could be done.

16th? It's the best superhero movie ever made. God I feel old... - truckturner

Best superhero film ever in my opinion, such a classic. - Applejack9876

It's a classic. - Misfire

17 Aquaman

This was an excellent movie for martial arts fans, this is purely for the fans that like action, the story is your typical Superhero movie and that has been accusations that it is just a ripoff of Black Panther - germshep24

A lot of awful CGI. Trying to be too smart. Too many "jump-scares". Weak plot. Boring action. This is a "flood" of disappointment. - TriggerTrashKid

Thought it was okay. CGI was absolutely awful at some parts. - RadioHead03

Thought it was awful. I hated it so much. - SimeOh

18 The Dark Knight Rises
19 Incredibles 2

This was quite a good movie - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

A great sequel. - B1ueNew

Nice - TriggerTrashKid

An animated movie is on here? Yes. The incredibles duology is certainly an epic one and one of the darkest pixar movie series out there. I like the first more, but this one's definitely creepier and more epic in my opinion. Screenslaver makes for an excellent and underrated villian who makes the battle scenes very epic in my opinion. - darthvadern

20 Batman vs. Robin
21 Batman: Bad Blood
22 Captain Marvel

This pretty much just introduces us to a character who was barely in the movie they made it for, but I give it 10/10 for Goose the cat. - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

It looks like a good movie

Horrible portrayal of the character, but still a decent (albeit feminist-pandering) film - xandermartin98

good movie

23 Deadpool

I love the part where Deadpool kills a bunch of guys with only one more round of bullets. - EvanWellens

Not old enough to watch this yet which depresses me so much! This is probably gonna be the first MA 15 movie I watch when I’m old enough! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

24 Captain America: Civil War

Favorite comic book movie - SimeOh

This WAS EPIC - TriggerTrashKid

The first Marvel movie I ever watched and WOW wasn’t it a great movie. The airport fight, the emotion, the return of Bucky Barnes. GOD DAMN I LOVE THIS MOVIE! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

25 Son of Batman
26 Spider-Man 2

That train scene, enough said - darthvadern

An absolutely classic Superhero movie should be higher in my opinion along with Spider-Man - germshep24

One of the greatest superhero movies I've seen so far. - Misfire


27 Batman: Mask of The Phantasm

Like AniMat said about this film in one of the oldest episodes of AniMat's Classic Reviews: Who the fridge doesn't love Batman?

IKR! Sure, in Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, Batman was just so out-of-character that it's unimaginable that such a highly hatable Batman like in most (keep in mind I said "most", 'because Justice League is an improvement over the other two of those 2016 DC Extended Universe films I mentioned whether you bash it, like it or both) of the DCEU films would even exist! But in Mask of the Phantasm and the show it is based, there's barely anything to complain about! In fact, we couldn't explain elaborately details to why Mask of the Phantasm is one of the greatest Batman films up to the ranks of The LEGO Batman movies and Tim Burton's Batman! The Batman trilogy by Christopher Nolan is well-made, but these other Batman films had more of a unique charm than these Batman films.

28 X-Men: Days of Future Past

Stupid Time Travel but pretty fun movie - TriggerTrashKid

29 Batman: The Movie
30 Spider-Man: Homecoming

This movie was awesome who are you bum raters

This movie was amazing

It was a humorous introduction to Tom Holland’s portrayal of Spider-man, and he played his part right to perfection 👌! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

31 Avenger's: Age of Ultron

Now, I certainly didn't like this movie, neither did many. I found it generally boring. However, the stuff that is epic in this movie though, IS truly epic. Yeah I agree pretty much the first half of this movie is just one giant borefest with nothing memorable at all, but once the battle for Sokovia starts, it really gets pretty darn good. It's like the only good part of this movie and it's just heroic and awesome. - darthvadern

Again this has to be one of the most boring superhero movie I have ever seen (no offense to be who like it) - RawIsgore

I actually like this movie! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

I love this film and it is better than DreamWorks Home. - Badabooo2

32 Spider-Man 3

Emo Peter was so cool and that made the movie better and darker

The darkest and edgiest of the trilogy. Also my favourite. Anyway one of the reasons it's my favourite is because its tone. I mentioned it's darker and edgier, and by reading the title of the list, you already know what I'm going to say what else it is so I won't say it. I mean it has three villians and all are pretty excellent and make up for great fights, my favourite of these being venom symbiote. However sandman and harry osborn are way more developed though I'll admit. - darthvadern

Too overstuffed, it tried to fit in to many characters. 5/10 - TheGrayDude55

Damn! the only movie that I recognized, but the others it just the new Kid s' generation of movies in hs history! - BloDayBey

33 Ant-Man

One of the most exciting marvel movies out there in my opinion. It's not necessarily that much of an epic movie, more funny than epic, however it's one of the most exciting ones. And when a superhero movie is exciting, it kinda automatically becomes somewhat epic. - darthvadern

I would have put Ant-Man 2 on here that had some epic scenes, this one was just a good light-hearted Superhero movies that will went deep with the joke that Ant-Man isn't cool - germshep24

Just a hilarious introduction to a great character who (no spoilers) was essential in Endgame. - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior


34 Batman Begins

Batman trilogy is best ever made

35 Megamind

Better than endgame - Kalividous

And I love you, random citizen! - rankist

36 The Amazing Bulk

I like how the cover says "this is the room of superhero movies! " so they're aware that it's bad. - myusernameisthis

What the fudge?

37 Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D.

Awesome film - TopTenser10

Good - TopTenser10

38 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Kind of the least clean marvel movie

This movie is hilarious! I love it! 9/10 (would’ve have been 10/10 but they killed off Yondu, so) - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

39 Captain America: The First Avenger
40 X-Men 2

Great - TriggerTrashKid

41 Big Hero 6
42 Fantastic Four (2005)
43 Venom (2018)

Guy: Who the heck are you?
Venom: WE ARE..
Eddie: Hey Chinese lady, do you have some..
Venom: VENOM!
Lady: Nah, and get that slime outta here.
Guy: Yeah, she's right!
Venom: *bites the head off of GUY*
Lady: I just mopped the floors! - TriggerTrashKid

VENOM! - EvanWellens

44 Superman II
45 Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo
46 Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox
47 Suicide Squad

Good - toptenser11

48 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990)
49 Justice League

One of my least favorite movies EVER.

My complaint about the movie was that steppenwolf was underdeveloped. Other then that it was alright. 7/10 - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

Still haven't watched this movie, from what I have heard what makes people not like it was the terrible Villain character that wasn't fleshed out and his end was anti climatic and the CGI - germshep24

My only complaints on this movie is that the CGI was not so great and the plot was a bit rushed. Other than that, I quite enjoyed it. - Misfire

50 X-Men: Apocalypse

Wasted potential, I was so excited for this movie and it was almost as bad as Last Stand - germshep24

I loved it - TriggerTrashKid
