Top 5 SuperHero Movie Series of All Time

Updated on May 12, 2015

Man of Steel: Fight Scene

1.) Superman

This is by far the most famous SuperHero franchise. Over the years, many remakes of the Superman story have been done in cinema. Amazingly, Hollywood continues to make money off this story and so they continue to remake them. The most recent remake of Superman was called "Man of Steel" which came out in 2013. Other versions of the movie include Superman 1 (1978), Superman II (1980), Superman III (1983), and Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987).

2.) X-Men

The X-Men is one of the most popular Super Hero movie series in recent times. Debuting with X-Men in 2000, it followed with X-men II in 2003 and X-Men: The Last Stand in 2006. X-Men: First Class came in 2011, followed by The Wolverine in 2013, and X-Men: Days of Future Past in 2014. These movies build on the science era obsession with the pursuit of the Superhuman produced by advanced genetics in our society. For popular entertainment value, they tell a great story. As a reflection on the mindset of our culture, they reflect the constant obsession our society has with the pursuit of bettering human kind through genetics and the possible consequences that could hold for our society. I personally enjoy the series for its story because I like good stories as most people do. These are great movies for teenagers and adults but I would not recommend them for young children.

3.) Batman

The modern version of Batman was a very popular series upon its release but with each successive release, the story grew darker. It started with Batman Begins in 2005, followed by The Dark Knight in 2008, and The Dark Knight Rises in 2012. Heath Ledger, the actor starring the Joker in the movies died prior to the release of the 2nd film. He was killed by a bad combination of prescription medication but there are some who think he descended to deeply into the darkness of his role in the 2nd film, and that was ultimately what killed him. Batman is a super hero story that has been popular over a long period of time. Previous Batman films included Batman (1943), Batman and Robin (1949), Batman (1966), Batman (1989), Batman Returns (1992), Batman Forever (1995), and Batman and Robin (1997). The Batman series is not appropriate for young children in my opinion.

4. The Avengers

The Avengers is the most recent Super Hero movie franchise series to debut in theaters. It started with movies telling the individual stories of the SuperHero cast in the Avengers. Ironman and The Incredible Hulk both released in 2008, followed by Iron Man II (2010), Thor (2011), Captain America (2011), and Marvel's The Avengers in 2012. Next was Iron Man 3 (2013), followed by Thor; the Dark World (2013), Captain America; The Winter Soldier (2014), Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), and Avengers; Age of Ultron which just released into the theaters days ago (2015). This is an extensive movie franchise with many different stories that weave together. Each of the individual stories; Iron Man, Thor, Hulk have all proven immensely popular. In general, kids love these movies and they are probably great movies for most ages but I would not recommend them for young children.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

5. Spiderman

Spiderman was a super popular series of movies when it was releasing into the theaters. It's a newer movie series on the tv seen without the long history of movies that Batman and Superman have. Spider man was released in 2002, followed by Spider Man 2 (2004) and Spider Man 3 (2007). But after the 3rd movie was made, something happened and Sony decided to redo the Spider Man Series. This led to the release of The Amazing Spider Man in 2012 and The Amazing Spider Man 2 in 2014. Its rumored that there will be a reappearance of Spider Man in cinema in 2017 in the yet to be released film Captain America: Civil War. The Spider Man series is child friendly and great for children and adults alike. It also communicates positive messages about role models, right and wrong, good and evil.
