Top Ten Comic Book Movies

There have been plenty of great comic book movies but which one will take the cake as #1.

The Top Ten

1 The Dark Knight The Dark Knight

This is so far the best comic book movie. It shows the rest of the world why us fanboys love the characters we read about so much. It's more than just guys in suits fighting each other. It's high drama with character driven plots.

This shouldn't even be a competition. The dark knight is one of the best movies of all time. The acting, the plot, the atmosphere, everything is exceptional.

I hate the fact that people compare THE DARK KNIGHT with the AVENGERS. the comparison itself is invalid. the performances given by the actors in THE DARK KNIGHT is just amazing. hats off to Heath "The Legend" Ledger.

Best movie of all time... best movie in general

2 The Avengers The Avengers

What? Number 23! Are you kidding me! Although I don't think this is a better movie than the Dark Knight it was a boatload more fun! Dark Knight trilogy was more serious but this one was way more fun. Easily the best comic book movie and movie of ALL time.

I would not consider this movie to be better than The Dark Knight but it is so entertaining and still maintains the spirit of the Comic books.

Such a bad movie. Filled with corny humour. Filled with lame jokes and plot holes. The more I watch this film, the worse I feel about it.

This was simply something new to superhero movies
It's still decent but it doesn't deserve the praise it gets

3 Spiderman Spiderman

We had to wait decades but finally it came along and blew us away. Good casting at the time, brilliant effects and a storyline not to different to alienate a true fan. Its pedigree can't be disputed and it just comes across so well that you forget its a super hero movie. Should be number 1

This movie was AWESOME. It isn't as good compared to the amazing spider man but I still think it was a great movie. If you've never watched this movie than you should give it a try. It may surprise you.

Simply awesome, Toby Maguire was perfect, much better than The Amazing Spider-Man...

Yes my all time favorite movie

4 The Dark Knight Rises The Dark Knight Rises

Truly interesting story with many amazing plot twists PLUS Bane and Talia Al Ghul!

Terrible movie. I have never seen a movie with so many plot holes. Not to mention the lack of Batman and boring as snot.

The Dark Knight should be #1 but this trash shouldn't even be ranked!

5 Batman Batman

The best superhero movie of all time. Michael Keaton's performance as batman is SPECTACULAR. - LightningRider

6 Guardians of the Galaxy Guardians of the Galaxy

How on Terra is this number nineteen!?

I voted Avengers but would change my vote to this if I took the time to scroll down.

7 Batman Begins Batman Begins
8 X-Men X-Men
9 Spider Man 2 Spider Man 2

Not sure why the 2002 'Spider-Man' movie is listed above this one, since I remember virtually everyone saying how they felt that this movie bettered its predecessor in mostly every way. This one is probably my favourite superhero movie, still, even after 12 years. - BKAllmighty

This movie is FREAKY! A few years ago my dad took me to see it, and then just as it started I said "I don't wanna do this anymore"!

My dad and I love this movie to death!

Spider-man 2 is the best

The Contenders

11 X2 - X-Men United X2 - X-Men United

Though I voted for DOFP, this is in fact the best ever X-Movie, maybe the best comic book movie ever. - KnutHudson

12 Captain America: The Winter Soldier Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Seriously! This has got to be Marvel's answer to Dark Knight. The cast is great, action sequences are beyond Dark Knight's and the plot is far better than Spiderman's. Sure the writing may be a little awkward if think about it long enough(nitpicking) but this movie deserves the top spot

Really great performances by Evans and johannsen, great action, great story, all around pretty great movie

Why is this masterpiece so low on the list
Definitively one of the best, if not, the best Marvel movie to date

13 Watchmen Watchmen

Fantastic alternate superhero film with a dark storyline

Definitely an underrated film and glad that's in the top ten - idontknow

I am a huge watchmen fan. I would describe how amazing this movie is, but I will end up typing the entire story - Jonerman

Dark, Brooding and Jessica Alba makes it a whole lot better. - LightningRider

15 Superman Superman

17 The Amazing Spider-Man The Amazing Spider-Man
18 Batman Returns Batman Returns

I like this movie because they show you how catwoman became who she is now. It also has a messed up villain in the movie. A Funny and serious movie

19 300 300

Gory, Action-Packed and overall awesome. - LightningRider

20 Deadpool Deadpool

Ok so I get it just came out but how is Deadpool below X-men and Spiderman 2. Personally this movie deserves to be much higher on the list. It was one of the first super-hero movies made for the fans not the box-office. Do you know how much more money they would have made if they made it pg-13 but they stuck it to the fans.
