The Top Five Superhero Movies Ever Made.

Once upon a time super hero films were considered a box office risk with only a handful being made every couple of years. Days gone by were not very kind to comic book fans, Thankfully the times have changed. Superhero movies are now big business, in no small part thanks to the success of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy and Marvels Avengers

 Read on to find out the best Superhero films ever!!

5. Blade (1998)


Marvels first success at the Box Office was with 1998s Blade. Featuring a pounding soundtrack and some of the best action ever committed to celluloid its easy to see why this was a bona fide hit.  
Wesley Snipes plays Blade, a human-vampire hybrid who is hunting vampires after the death of his mother. This is not your typical Marvel film, its violent, loud, and bloody.  Blade comes highly recommended for fans of both vampires and superheroes. 

Buy at Amazon :   Blade [DVD]                  

4. Superman (1978)


Forget Man Of Steel for a moment, for the longest time this was the definitive Superman movie and in my eyes it still is. Made long before the cgi era Superman is a tour de force in pre cgi visual effects. It even won a special award for its visual effects, its that good. 

Superman was and remains a fantastic success in film making. Its easy to see why it was Warner Bros highest grossing film at the time. Do yourself a favor and check out the best origin story of one of the worlds best loved Superheroes. Is it a bird? is it a plane? No its Superman!!

3. X-Men (2000)

If Blade got the ball rolling for Marvel then 2000s X-Men knocked that ball into the stratosphere. Starting out life in the early 90s as possible James Cameron project and was scrapped until  further developments were made in 1996. Released in 2000 X-Men paved the way for the slew of superhero films we now see released regularly, featuring dazzling special effects and a detailed plot, superheros have come a long way on the big screen. Be sure to check this one out to see where the 2000s superhero boom started. Upon release X-Men was the ninth highest-grossing film of 2000.

2. The Avengers (2012)

Depending on your personal preference in Superheroes, this next entry may well be your favorite. 
2012s The Avengers is an absolute behemoth in the Comic Book genre. It was a Box Office juggernaut when released in May 2012 crushing all competition bar none. State of the art cgi, an assemble of marvels greatest heroes, and more destruction than a Micheal Bay movie, The Avengers is the elite in Comic Book action. The upcoming sequel is sure to be just as worthwhile.

1. The Dark Knight (2008)

2008s The Dark Knight is a Genre Bending masterpiece. And is generally considered the greatest comic book film of all time. But its much more than a superhero film. Its themes are vast and deep. Playing more like a tragic play and a crime thriller than an average camp superhero romp, this is the mac daddy of the superhero genre. I cannot recommend this film enough. Featuring one of the greatest villains of all time, Heath Ledgers Joker, this film will no doubt remain at the top for years to come. Fantastic character development, a fantastic villain and explosive action make this a must see.
