Ranking the Marvel/DC movies

Here is my ranking of Marvel/DC films since the first "Iron Man" movie. I consider any movie before that to be a different generation.

1. "Captain America: Civil War" - An explosion of awesome heroes. Every fangirl's dream.
2. "Avengers" - The historic gathering of Marvel's top heroes
3. "Spider-Man: Homecoming" - Sheer fun. Great villain with depth. A very likable supporting cast.
4. "Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2" - Better than the first movie. Loads of fun. Groot is adorable!
5. "Guardians of the Galaxy" - Surprisingly fun. Lots of humor and great effects
6. "Avengers: Age of Ultron" - Avengers + Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and Vision
7. "Batman: The Dark Knight" - Heath Ledger turns in a great performance as the Joker
8. "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" - Great action + introduction of the Falcon
9. "Suicide Squad" - Fun ensemble movie giving the bad guys the spotlight
10. "Batman v Superman" - Should have been so much better. A squandered opportunity.
11. "Iron Man" - The film that started it all. Robert Downey Jr. delivers a new take on Tony Stark
11. "Batman Begins" - Reboot of the Batman movie franchise. Decent, but a bit too serious

These are the ones that I saw. I didn't see all the rest, including Iron Man 2 or 3, or any of the Thor or Hulk films.

Marvel just does superhero movies right. DC has yet to catch on.

He was in the 2007 movie, "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer," and I liked it. But that was a year before Marvel basically rebooted their cinematic universe with the first "Iron Man" movie.

Thanks. I think I'll watch it.

I like your list. Haven't seen some of the movies. Batman begins should be higher, while Batman v Superman should not appear anywhere. Though I didn't hate it as much as others, there are a lot of comic book movies better than it.

"Logan" should be near the top. I really thought that was exceptional story telling. As much as I loved X-Men as a kid, they really have just done a sort of "meh" job on those. But Logan was amazing. Dead pool was very good as well, though I saw an airplane version without all of the sex scenes, which I was definitely okay with.

My list might go:

The dark knight
Logan
Winter soldier
Civil war
Batman begins

You should watch them in France (since you travel a lot), there's almost no censorship there, not by our standards at any rate.

I actually don't mind when they cut out sex scenes on airplane versions of movies. First, it's super uncomfortable watching a sex scene (at least for me) with a bunch of strangers sitting next to me and behind me. Second, as I've gotten older, I just find these sorts of scenes in dramatic or action movies distracting and boring. If I want that, I know where to find it online. Do I really want to see two actors having simulated sex on the screen in the middle of a movie? Why? Perhaps it's just me... no judgment, truly, for those who enjoy that.

Well, you said it as though you regretted that those sex scenes were cut out. "Though I saw an airplane version without all of the sex scenes" is a strange thing to notice if you don't mind it.

"I really enjoyed that meal though they didn't put any meat in it" means that I enjoyed the meal in spite of a lack of meat in it.


Plus if those scenes make you uncomfortable then that's definitely not the way to say it. Something like "Dead pool was very good as well, all the more since I saw an airplane version without all of the sex scenes" wouldn't leave as much room for ambiguity.

I've never seen Logan or any of the more recent X-Men films. I sure with X-Men could be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, instead of a Sony property. Same with the Fantastic Four.

You're right. I worded that poorly. Disregard use of the word "though".
