Poll Position: Best Superhero Film Of All Time

Ok, so after our last poll ranking all of the MCU movies from worst to best, I thought it would be a good idea to revisit another old List we did a few years ago, this time from 2016. So, this time we're looking at what the best superhero film is. Considering the number of superhero films that have been released, this should be a good one. We're talking anything superhero, from Superman and Captain America's WW2 propaganda films, through Batman's 1966 film, to the 70's Superman films, Batman's 80's/ 90's efforts (if you feel sadistic enough to nominate any of his 90's output), to the 2000's revival through to the MCU and DCEU. We're including both live action and animated, as well as anything not Marvel or DC, so The Mask, Hellboy and the Crow are all fair game, as are both Incredibles films.

Rules: You can add your own entries to this poll, but only once a day.  I've started us off with 10 random films, but you can add any superhero film you like, just as long as it's not already on the list and you must leave a comment saying why you think the film you've added should be in the top 10 of all time. You can vote for up to 5 movies a day and the poll is open until the 7th of June.

    As much as I dislike Jim Carrey, he was perfect for The Mask. Michael Keaton and Tim Burton made movie magic. Jack Nicklaus was actually the weak link. No apology, Iron Man reset the genre with its updated origin, second-chance actor, effects, and action.

    I am still way surprised on the gamble that they did with Guardians of the Galaxy. Where is my Alien Legion? Or Micronauts or ROM the Space Knight? The Elementals or the solo series with Pathom? Sandman and Death … Let’s go!

    Anyway, Michael Keaton is best Batman ever.

    Batman is the most interesting conundrum. Keaton was the best solo Batman, Affleck played the most believable team builder, Kilmer was the best Wayne, Hamill was the best Joker voice, Ledger was the best non-standard Joker persona. I’m torn as to the best Robin or Penguin or Catwoman–for that reason, I cannot vote on the best Batman movie. Unfortunately, that makes me as divided as Two-Face on how to vote?

    For me, Batman needs to be seen as this, for lack of better words, ominous entity of the night, this fearful shadow that is seemingly ubiquitous. He needs to be as intimidating looking as he is intelligent. Showcase his stealth, gadgets, detective skills, fighting ability, and lastly, show how he brings the fear of god in his enemies. I really think the best person to have shown this and would have had the greatest potential if done right, was Ben Afflect. Unfortunately his appearance was undermined by bad storytelling and directing in my opinion. If Afflect wouldn’t have fallen out on himself, he would have taken Bats down the right path. I can say all of this for Henry Cavil as well as I see him as the physical manifestation of Superman, he is beyond perfect. Just needs a good director/writer on his side.

    I like the traditional Marvel and DC superheroes as much as the next guy but I’ve always enjoyed the independent superhero, Kick-Ass to me was really enjoyable.

    Which Judge Dredd? Sylvester Stallone (1995) or Karl Urban (2012)? Both have merits. It’s too late but I wish that Karl Urban would have done at least one sequel. Technically, Dredd isn’t a superhero.

    @The Atomic Punk- Dunno. This is why you need to put years people.
