RANKED! Our 20 Favorite Comic Book Movies of the Last 20 Years

Nobody would have believed you 20 years ago if you said that one day, masked men in tights would dominate the global box office. But as any certified comic book nerd will tell you, it was bound to happen. With so many glorious heroes, villains, storylines, and climactic finales, adult picture books have become ground zero for blockbuster movies. Which means that words like “gyuff,” “pffft,” “zoink,” and “bamf” are perfectly acceptable things to say to your college professor. Today we celebrate the majesty of comic book flicks, from billion-dollar behemoths to arthouse spools, with the very best comic book movies of the last 20 years. Because comic books rule. Nuff said.
