POLL: Greatest Comic Book Films of All Time



Bruce Wayne’s World is asking TBU fans to choose their Top Comic Book films. While we normally aim to focus on Batman related films, their is a huge list of films that have been made based off of existing comic/graphic novel material that was published prior to the film’s release.


In an effort to compose a ranking of the greatest comic book movies of all time, we are asking comic book fans to cast their votes for their favorite films. Please cast your votes for the films you feel warrant inclusion on a Top 25 ranking. You may vote for as many or as few films as you like. The amount of votes each film receives will directly impact it’s ranking on the final list to be released on the December 29 here on The Batman Universe and in episode 45 of Bruce Wayne’s World. All votes must be submitted by December 25 to be counted for the final list.


Below is an alphabetical itemization of the Top 100 Comic Book Movies factoring in historical significance, form, and critical response. Although write-ins are welcome, further stipulations used to compile this list include:


  1. Films must be based on a comic book or a pulp series / comic strip that also had a history in comic books.
  2. Film serials are excluded from running.
  3. Films must be feature-length and released theatrically in the U.S.
  4. Finalists on this list are evaluated on the aforementioned criteria as well as critical reception and cultural significance.


So without further ado, here is the list of the Top 100 for your consideration. Feel free to leave your choices/votes for your Top 25 in the comment section below.
