Top 10 Superhero Movies of the 2010s (so far)

There’s something inescapable about superheroes. Whether it be the big action spectacles, the tights, or the image of the man who we all imagined becoming one day (*sniff* there’s still time…), we live in an age of superheroes. (NOT an Age of Ultron. That would be bad.) Since we, as a society, always strive for the best and need to sort things into specific little boxes, I thought that this was a perfect time to consider some of the best superhero movies that have debuted on the big screen recently.

But first, some disclaimers! FIRST: These are just the movies. I love Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Arrow (the first two seasons at least…) and most other superhero TV as much as the next guy. However, we’re only focusing on the big budget releases in theaters for today. SECOND: These are just the recent movies. As in, these films have all comes out after January 1st, 2010. I did a Top 10 Superhero Movies Ever list a couple years ago and it quickly became outdated, so I’ll wait a little while before doing one again… Regardless, some of the best Superhero Movies have come out just in the past seven years! THIRD: This is only my list. There are gonna be some movies that you love that simply didn’t make this list, so feel free to rant to your friends or leave a comment about it. I’d love to hear what your take it and what your favorites are, for real!

BUT, now with all those disclaimers out of the way, let’s dive into the Top 10 Best Superhero Movies of the 2010s! (So far)

    • That being said, every couple of years maybe I’ll do an updated list?
    • But here it is as of 2015!
  • And my typical disclaimer: this is my subjective list. These may not be the movies you guys all love, maybe there’s a movie on this list that you hate, you could be all: pfffft! Or, you could be cool and hear me out, then post your favorites in the comments down below!

Fantastic Four (2015) Teaser Trailer Review

Preface

  • This movie has had 1 hundred-and-one problems surrounding it.
  • I was looking forward to this movie when I first heard about it a couple years back for one reason: we live in a post-Dark Knight Trilogy era where superhero movies aren’t stupid and cheesy like the Jessica Alba Fantastic Four movies.
    • I assumed that the new Fantastic Four would have that new, dark edge to it that all superhero movies do nowadays.
  • Then I heard rumors about the problems on set, the release date being pushed back, Josh Trank (the director) maybe borrowing too much from his prior work Chronicle (one of my favorite films, by the way). Plus we hadn’t seen any images or footage from the film yet and it’s only 6-ish months away!
  • But this trailer changed my mind on that.
  • I thought that this trailer was GREAT.
