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 The Dark Knight

The fact that The Dark Knight is not number one on this list indicates that you people have not seen The Dark Knight. So go watch it and see for yourself why this is the obvious choice.

The Dark Knight Is the best movies of all time! How can It not be the best super hero movie of all time? Heath Ledger and Christian Bale nailed those performances

This one will surprise you in all the best ways. Never have they made a kids film as dark as this one.

Avengers Infinity War: the most epic superhero movie of all time.

The Dark Knight: Hold my beer.

Should be the other way around since dark knight came before infinity war - RawIsgore

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)

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

Mediocre. Could have been improved had Loki Died at the end. Absolutely hated the ending where nearly every superhero disintegrated

3 Avengers: Endgame

I tried to avoid spoilers on the internet. With the snap of the fingers, the body count was lower than the other in Infinity War. Both sad endings were totally different.

I know it only came out a few days ago but it deserves to be at number 1 because of the ending

Great movie but by the way Spider-Man Into the Spider Verse is overrated

Avengers Endgame was sad funny and action packed stunts.

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

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.

This movie is really good. - RadioHead03

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 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

Heeell heell what da matter with ya head find it

7 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

8 The Incredibles

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.

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 boring incredibles - Dvafan2

Best Captain America ever. - codgtamk34

10 Black Panther

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

Misfire is right - TriggerTrashKid

Best movie no contest.

Way to overrated, ps3 graphics, some boring storytelling, 6.5/10 - TheGrayDude55

The Contenders

11 Thor: Ragnarock

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

I really like this movie, but the comedy parts are a bit too many. - Misfire

Best last 20 minutes in any movie from the superhero genre - tequila

12 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

Good. - B1ueNew

13 Iron Man

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

14 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

In my opinion, I really think that the film is astonishing and stupendous. - SpinelliFan

15 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

16 Batman: Under the Red Hood
17 Batman vs. Robin
18 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

19 Batman: Bad Blood
20 Deadpool

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

21 Captain America: Civil War

Favorite comic book movie - SimeOh

This WAS EPIC - TriggerTrashKid

22 The Dark Knight Rises
23 Son of Batman
24 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.

25 X-Men: Days of Future Past

Stupid Time Travel but pretty fun movie - TriggerTrashKid

26 Batman: The Movie
27 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

28 Captain Marvel

good movie

29 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


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

I think I'm the only one who actually likes this movie. Lol
But then again, it could be because of nostalgia. This is one of the first MCU movies I've watched. - Misfire

I love this movie. This is better than DreamWorks Home. Home is a boring movie. - Badabooo2

31 Spider-Man 3

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

32 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


33 Megamind

And I love you, random citizen! - rankist

34 Batman Begins
35 Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice

This film is boring and obsessive. - Badabooo2

Not a bad movie - Patriotsdoodoo

This deserves to be on this list antman and the wasp is above this?
Batman forever? really
Justice league?
i mean this isn't perfect but wuuut
xmen appocalypse Big hero 6 what's going on

36 Spider-Man: Homecoming
37 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Kind of the least clean marvel movie

38 Fantastic Four (2005)
39 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

40 The Amazing Spider-Man

A fresh wind after the original Spiderman sequel.

41 Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo
42 Justice League

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

I actually liked this movie a lot. Not liked, but loved actually. Wonder Woman is better and more epic, but this one's pretty darn good as well I must actually say. We all know this movie feels a bit rushed and the effects isn't entirely the best although I still liked them, but I really loved seeing all these DC heroes work togheter. My two personal favourite superheroes in the DCEU are the flash and aquaman and seeing them was cool. The final battle was the most epic part also. - darthvadern

Oof, so bad - TriggerTrashKid

43 X-Men 2

Great - TriggerTrashKid

44 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

45 Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie
46 Spider-Man

You could say that Spider-Man is Marvel's equivalent to Batman. So much so, that they have many movies that are very well-regarded like Spider-Man 3's predecessors (though I like Spider-Man 3 as something that is hilariously failed) and a few released in the 2010s that we just wish were made by different directors like Suicide Squad and the The Amazing Spider-Man films. Speaking of 201r superhero films, it's just incredible how great Guardians of the Galaxy and Big Hero 6 are compared to The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

47 Big Hero 6
48 Ant-Man and the Wasp


49 Superman II
50 Batman Forever
