Top 10 DC Films

These aren’t specific to the DCEU or to live action. This list consists of any movie made. Keep in mind, this list’s rankings are based on my opinion and are not ranked according to their scores.

'Batman Mask of the Phantasm'

10) 'Batman: Assault on Arkham'

Based in the same universe as the Arkham game series, this movie sees the suicide squad being sent straight into Arkham for a, well... suicide mission. Their mission is to retrieve a USB drive in the Riddler’s cane that contains information on the squad that he was going to release to the public. Although, Batman has his own plan, and, you guessed it, so does the Joker. This is the best Suicide Squad movie made, and this is what the live action DCEU movie should have been.

9) 'Superman'

Released in 1978, Superman combined both a sense of levity and humour with a coming of age story of someone who ends up saving the world. Portrayed by the late Christopher Reeve, who many see as the one and only Superman. This is the origin story of Superman, and, for those who don’t know, Kal-El is sent from a doomed Krypton to earth, where he has the powers equivalent to a God. It’s up to him to decide how to use them.

8) 'Batman: The Dark Knight Returns' Deluxe Edition

The deluxe edition puts both part one and two together to make it into one movie. The movie is an animated version of the popular and really great Frank Miller classic "The Dark Knight Returns." The story takes place late in Bruce Wayne’s life. Batman is retired and the Joker has been cured and held at Arkham. Although, a chain of events makes both of them go back to who they really are.

7) 'The Dark Knight Rises'

The ending to the absolutely superb Batman trilogy by the master himself Christopher Nolan. In the finale, Batman must rise back up and take down his toughest enemy yet, Bane. After a confrontation with Bane, Bruce is taken down and must build back his strength to save his home and the people he loves.

6) 'The LEGO Batman Movie'

After the great commercial and critical success of The LEGO Movie and the success of Batman, which was voiced by Will Arnett which showed a more comedic side of the famous caped crusader. So, naturally, the next step would be to make him a feature film, centered around his relationship with the Joker, the new Robin he adopts, and the new Gordon in town, Barbara. This movie is hilarious and is a much watch for all ages.

LEGO Batman

5) 'The Batman'

The movie that moved Batman from light-hearted detective solving the most ludicrous riddles and having "BAM" pop up with every hit to dark crime thriller—all thanks to Tim Burton’s beautifully dark mind. The movie has two stand-out performances by both Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson, with the latter being both charismatic and terrifying as the main antagonist “The Joker.”

'The Batman' (1978)

4) 'Under the Red Hood'

This animated DC movie is one of the best around. Based on the extremely popular comic book storyline which pits Batman against a new anti-hero. The anti-hero in the case is the Red Hood who, unlike Batman, is actually killing the criminals in Gotham, all while taking over their criminal enterprises. Although, one thing they both couldn’t account for is a Joker-shaped wrench being thrown into the mix, and that’s when some major revaluations come to light. The performances are outstanding as well, specifically Jensen Ackles’ performance of Red Hood, which is why almost every DC fan wants him to play the live action version of the anti-hero.

'Under the Red Hood'

3) 'Wonder Woman'

What an excellent addition to the superhero genre and one of the best DC movies ever made—all the while being the first female superhero movie since the terrible Elektra movie in 2005. To all those who doubted that a female lead superhero movie would flop, I present to you the superbly executed Wonder Woman. Great story, excellent action, plenty of heartbreak and most importantly, amazingly lovable and relatable characters, make this a superhero tale for the ages.

Wonder Woman (2017)

2) 'Batman: The Mask of the Phantasm'

A movie made by the same team that made one of the greatest shows of all time doesn’t seem so bad, add Batman to the mix and you’ve got a recipe for success. Kevin Conroy reprises his role as the most beloved caped crusader. The story this time follows Batman as he tries to figure out the true identity of The Phantasm, a ghost-like person killing off mob bosses, and it seems every person is pointing their fingers at Batman as the killer. Now he must set out to clear his name.

'Mask of the Phantasm'

1) 'The Dark Knight'

What can I say that every person on earth hasn’t already said about The Dark Knight? It’s not only the best DC movie ever or the best Batman movie ever, it’s one of the best movies ever made, including one of—if not the greatest—movie villain ever, not to mention the phenomenal performance by the late Heath Ledger. All that coupled with Christopher Nolan’s directing mastery add up to make this my number one DC movie.

'The Dark Knight'
