Spidey comes back to Hollywood with yet another bang. Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) puts on the spiderman suit to fight against a midlife crime-fighting crisis and Dr. Octavius (Alfred Molina) in Spider-Man 2.

The film, being the best in the entire spidey movie franchise, won over both the audiences and the critics alike and bagged an Oscar for ‘Best Visual Effects’.


1. The Dark Knight (2008)

The Dark Knight 2008 Superhero Movie

Despite Batman Begins being already included in the list, we still went ahead with this one (given the fact that we usually try to include only the best entry from an entire film series) for obvious reasons.

The brilliance of Heath Ledger’s acting as Joker and Christopher Nolan’s perfect plot doesn’t only help win 2 Oscars but also puts this sequel of Batman Begins right on top of our best superhero movies list. The Dark Knight has everything a good superhero movie needs and is produced to perfection.


Honorable Mention:

  • Fantastic Four (2005)
