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 list of spiritual films.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
