The Superhero genre has become very popular now in Hollywood with all the Marvel movies coming out and The Dark Knight saga. I decided to do a top 10 with my favorites, but I’m gonna include only one movie per hero or team. It’s gonna be difficult but I’m sure I’ll come up with a good list!
This list is not about any comic book made into a movie, it’s based only in the superhero genre, so no Sin City or 300 here.
I also want to say that there’s lot of good movies I haven’t seen so don’t be mad if your favorite ones didn’t make the cut, maybe it’s because I haven’t seen it yet.
10. Captain America: The First Avenger
I love this movie because of its historic roots and because we get to see the origins of Marvel’s biggest superhero Captain America. Though it was a little bit long for me, I really enjoyed it and can’t wait for the sequel!
9. The Wolverine
This wasn’t the best superhero movie, but it was a big surprise after the horror that was X-Men Origins: Wolverine! It was such a relief that I ended up loving this one! Plus Hugh Jackman is amazing here!!
8. Fantastic 4
I know this franchise wasn’t very successful and only got two movies, but I really liked them. It’s true that the second one, Raise Of Silver Surfer, wasn’t very good, but I loved the first movie. I loved Julian McMahon playing the bad guy again like he did in Charmed and of course Jessica Alba!
7. Blade 2
Is it crazy that I had never watched the Blade movies until last year? I know! But now that I’ve seen them all, I love them! My favorite one was Blade 2 and it was amazing! I really liked it and it was crazy to see Santiago Segura (a very famous and funny Spanish actor) in the movie!
6. Thor: The Dark World
I wasn’t a big fan of the first Thor movie, but I loved the second one! It had everything: action, drama, love and a lot of laughs! Seriously, I spent the whole movie laughing. It was really really good!
5. Iron Man
I’m not a very big fan of Iron Man in the comics, but in the movies I love him! Thanks Robert Downey Jr. His portrayal of the superhero makes it one of the best heroes ever! I love the 3 Iron Man movies, but the first one will always have that thing that makes it better!
4. Batman Returns
Ok, don’t get mad! I know everyone was expecting The Dark Knight to be my pick for the Batman movie, but I really prefer the Tim Burton movies. Don’t get me wrong, I love The Dark Knight saga, but the old movies were more true to the comics and I really like them more. Plus I grew up watching them, so I have a nostalgic feeling for them. My favorite one is Batman Returns. Thanks to Michelle Pfeiffer and Danny DeVito for their amazing villain portrayals!
3. The Avengers
Ok, this is the most EPIC superhero movie that has ever been made! Everyone agrees right? I can watch this movies over and over and I don’t care how long it is, I love it! It even made me love Hulk (I didn’t really care for him before) and everyone is amazing in this! It’s just superhero perfection! Thanks Joss Whedon!
2. Spider-Man 2
Spider-Man is one of my favorite Marvel heroes and the first trilogy was amazing! Well, the third movie was a bit of a joke, but I liked them all. It’s obvious that the best one was the second one and I think everyone agrees with me on this one. It was just epic and Dr. Octopus was really great!
And number 1 is… Of course I had to choose an X-Men movie! I know I already put The Wolverine on this list, but they have separated comics, so it’s ok! I had a very difficult time choosing between X2 and X-Men: First Class, both movies were amazingly good, but I finally chose X2! It has the original cast and it was always my favorite hero movie since I was a kid, so I had to choose it!
I know I only chose one DC Comics movie and all the others are from Marvel Comics, but I don’t like Superman movies at all! And I’ve always liked Marvel heroes more!
There’re great superhero movies coming up this year, so I’ll have to change this list probably! haha
If you don’t agree you can tell me your favorite movies in the comments! Hope you enjoyed!
