Top 50 Superhero Movies of All-Time: 50-41
50. Justice League (2017)- This movie should have been great. DC’s greatest superheros uniting for the first time and the movie was just… average. The amount of drama with how this movie was made is notorious. The best way I can describe it is that the movie was rushed. There are too many story lines going on in too short of a run time. Not to mention it had one of the worst, non threatening villains ever in Steppenwolf.
49. Thor: The Dark World (2013)- While this movie is underwhelming and the worst in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it still has some cool things to take away from. The development of Thor and Loki’s relationship after The Avengers is great. But it can’t save the film from becoming dull.
48. Superman Returns (2006)- In what was the first Superman movie in 20 years, Superman Returns was a homage sequel to the original Superman and Superman II. While I liked Brandon Roth as Superman, the movie felt uneven and fell apart at the end. With little action in the film, it felt boring for a superhero movie.
47. Iron Man 2 (2010)- Coming off the huge success of Iron Man, Iron Man 2 doesn’t live up to its predecessor. It tries to set up too many things for future films and doesn’t focus the main story. But seeing Nick Fury and Black Widow for the first time is still awesome to see.
46. Iron Man 3 (2013)- While this movie isn’t the worst, it has to be one of the most controversial MCU films. While Robert Downey Jr. is still amazing as Tony Stark, the movie suffers from a plot twist gone wrong. When it’s revealed that The Mandarin is actually a fake villain, I lost my mind. I thought it was a huge mistake and kept Iron Man 3 from becoming a great movie. Especially when you cast someone like Ben Kingsley.
45. Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018)- The 1st MCU movie following Avengers: Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp felt like a bit of downer. Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly are still good in their respective roles but the movie fails to recapture the magic from the first.
44. Aquaman (2018)- Still in some theaters, Aquaman has just joined the elusive billion dollar club. While the movie tends to be conry at points, Jason Mamoa’s Arthur Curry gives us a very relatable and likable superhero to get behind.
43. The Wolverine (2013)- Following the disaster that was X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The Wolverine was a nice bounce back for Hugh Jackman as Logan. Taking place in Japan, we find Logan at a tough time in his life as he’s dealing with issue of immortality. While the movie doesn’t blow anyone away, it set up a darker tone for Wolverine which paid off in the rated R Logan (we’ll get to that soon).
42. Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2 (2017)- Despite keeping the same fun tone from the original, Volume 2 isn’t able to execute the story as well as the first. Kurt Russell is a welcome addition to the film as he plays Peter Quill’s father and surprising enemy to the Guardians of the Galaxy.
41. Big Hero 6 (2014)- The 54th animated movie from Disney, Big Hero 6 was surprisingly good film. Based off the Marvel Comic of the same name, Big Hero 6 is a great coming of age story between Hiro and the lovable Baymax.
