With the Dark Knight hitting Theatres soon, we thought it was time to look back on the top 10 superhero movies of all time. So below is a list starting with number 10 of our top superhero movies.
The first time we get to see Toby McGuire as the web slinging hero, and the reason why superhero movies were cool to watch again. This movie did well for an origin movie and is thoroughly enjoyable not as much as its sequel though.
Another Marvel movie in the top 10 list, with the strong characters and the movies broad appeal its hard not to enjoy the first X-men movie. Although it lacked the action that some fans desired, X-men is still a good superhero movie.
8. The Incredible Hulk 2008
The reboot of Ang Lees Hulk, this time starring Edward Norton and Liv Tyler. The incredible hulk improved so much on its first attempt and is worthy of its number 8 spot. The perfect cast, the amazing fight sequences all make the Incredible Hulk a fun and enjoyable Superhero movie.
7. Spider Man 2
The sequel improves on Spiderman in heaps and bounds, not only does Spiderman still have his comedic side to him but also the action sequences are what you expect from a superhero movie AMAZING! Spideys fights with Dr Ock on the train are awesome to watch and are pretty much hard top.
6. Superman Returns
Finally a DC superhero movie in the charts. While the pace of the movie is not what you would expect from a superhero movie, and there isn’t a lot of action either. Superman Returns still delivers, with strong characters and an excellent cinematic experience in the plane sequence. Hopefully if there is a sequel there would be more action!
5. X-Men 2
More action than the first, from the wolverine fights to Night crawler’s invasion of the white house. This movie improved on the first in everyway possible and the ending was also very good for setting up what looked like a promising trilogy, little did we know X-Men the last stand would be rubbish.
Some viewers may disagree, but Hancock had everything a superhero movie should have, some moments of comedy, action, story and strong acting. Will smith’s super performance also surprises me in this movie and Hancock deserves its place at number 4.
3. Iron Man
Not knowing much about the character of Iron Man I wasn’t sure what to expect when watching the movie. Everything from the character of Tony Stark to the onscreen performances of Downey and Paltrow were enjoyable to watch.
2. Superman the Movie
The original superman movie has everything a superhero movie should have, and considering it was made so long ago and is still rated by many fans as the best Superman Movie to date well that shows how good this movie is. The helicopter scene where the world is first introduced to Superman is amazing and makes me smile every time I watch it. Christopher Reeve pulls of Superman and Clark so well he’s still remembered today as one of the best actors to have played Superman. This film will make you believe a man can fly, and for this reason above all( Nod to the fans) Superman The Movie Ranks in at number 2 of all time superhero movies.
And now for the number 1 spot of all time superhero movies… Ghost Rider… Just kidding.
1. Batman Begins
Christopher Nolan can’t be thanked enough for making a Superhero movie so good that all the other Batman attempts are wiped from our minds. With the rubbish that came before Batman Begins it’s hard to see why any one would want another attempt at a Batman Film, but Nolan did this and the results are amazing. We have a truly believable superhero movie which gets rid of the silly plot lines, silly characters and unbelievable architecture of Gotham and made everything a lot more realistic which benefits this film. Christian Bale is an excellent choice for Batman and also Michael Caine is excellent as Bruce’s butler Alfred.
