Favorite Comic Book Movies
Comic books play a major part in the movies and T.V shows we see today on the big screen and at home. Through out the years we have seen many great comic book movies and some really bad ones as well. Below is a list of my favorite comic book movies that I enjoyed throughout the years. Keep in mind that this list is solely based off my own opinions. Attributes that are taken into consideration are popularity, movie plots and all around awesomeness. Enjoy!
Dark Knight Trilogy
The Dark Knight trilogy starring Christian Bale is by far my favorite comic book movie trilogy of all time. With Batman facing off against villains like Scarecrow, Bane and the infamous Joker played by Heath Ledger, these movies were a box office success. I was almost sad to see it all end. Let’s see where Hollywood decides to take the Batman franchise from here.
Played by Robert Downey Jr., this trilogy was also epically done. The visual effects in these movies are really quite impressive. Usually Hollywood takes a couple of tries before getting comic book movies right, but this time they knocked it out the park on the first swing. Can’t wait to see if they continue the franchise.
Seeing The Avenger team come together on the big screen was awesome. When you have Ironman, Captain America, The Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Loki and Nick Fury all together is one movie, you are almost guaranteed success. I can’t wait for Hollywood to bring The Avengers back for another epic showdown against evil.
The first X-Men film in the franchise was one of those movies you could watch over and over again. Seeing heroes and villains like Wolverine and Magneto come to life on the big screen was a moment that many fans will never forget. Great storyline and a terrific cast this movie comes in at #4 on my list.
Honestly I didn’t have high hopes for this movie when I found out Hollywood was taking it to the big screen, but after finding out they casted Chris Hemsworth as Thor I was pretty excited. Then after seeing the first preview i was instantly hooked. Overall the storyline, cast and visual effects make this movie a Marvel classic.
I would love to know which comic book movies are your favorite. I’m sure every list will be different but one thing is for sure, our love for comics and comic book movies will continue to grow from generation to generation. The next few years should be extraordinary for comic book movies and fans, so stay tuned and enjoy!
