What are the best comic book movies ever made?

Most of the blockbusters nowadays are coming from Marvel and DC Studios. What do they have in common? They're both movies based on comic books! The appeal of superhero movies throughout the years has grown. What used to be something only comic book fans appreciate is now reaching the masses. This is because most comic books published way back are becoming popular films. A notable example would be the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The MCU is home to some of the best comic book movies ever made. These are Iron Man, The Avengers, Black Panther, and Thor: Ragnarok, among many others. The MCU opened a niche such as comic books to a wider audience. Even people who don't read the comics turn excited about every new MCU theatrical release! Although the MCU is popular among the masses, the DCEU is a force to be reckoned with. DCEU is short for DC Extended Universe. DCEU's selection of comic book movies are fewer but are just as interesting! If MCU offers a comedy action approach to their films, DCEU is darker and more sinister. Popular releases under DCEU are Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Shazam!, and Justice League. There are also successful DC movies outside the DCEU. Namely, the Dark Knight trilogy by Christopher Nolan. The 2008 movie The Dark Knight is still one of the fan-favorite superhero movies to this day.

Whether you're a Marvel or DC fan, these best comic book movies are definitely worth watching. You get to see which makes them different and appreciate them both along the way. Here are some of the best comic book movies ever made to start binge-watching!

    "The Dark Knight is superior in every way, not even the MCU movies can top this single film. It remains unbeaten to this day. Both Christian Bale and Heath Ledger did really well on TDK."
