The Greatest Animated Comic Book Movies

animated comic book movies

There are really just a handful of amazing animated comic book movies, which eventually went on to the big screen. Some of these are Batman, Superman, The Incredibles, Shrek, Spider-Man and X-Men. I am not going to say any of those films are bad, but they were not near the greatness that some of these animated comic book movies have become over the last couple of decades. So, let’s have a look at a few of my favorite animated movie super heroes here.

Animated Comic Book Movies – The Lion King

A very fun animated comic book movie is The Lion King. This movie had a ton of great songs and did very well at the box office. It also was one of the best animated movies of 2021. Of course, like most of the other animated movies on this list, it pretty much went into repeat viewings. I have seen it four times now, and I still love it!

One other great animated movie, which is very underrated is Batman: Into the Gotham City. Sure, it has almost nothing in common with the comics it is based on, but it still is a very entertaining watch. It’s just like the old Batman TV series did, but it managed to be even more fun than the television version. If you haven’t seen it, you should definitely go and see it!

The second favourite animated comic book movies of mine is The Dark Knight. Yes, I have been waiting for this movie since it came out in June of 2021. I knew right from the start that it would be good. Heath Ledger was amazing, and the storyline kept me on the edge of my seat for the entire movie. It’s definitely one of my favourite superhero movies of all time!


The third on my list is Spiderman. I’m a huge fan, so when I found out that there would be three Spiderman films in a row, I went crazy. I even had the original DVD release, just to make sure I had the first two Spiderman films in my collection. Amazing Spiderman is absolutely amazing, and the spider costume was better than I have ever seen. The reboot really pulled me into this film, and it turned out to be better than I originally thought.

Last but not least on my list are the Amazing Spiderman and Dark Knight Rises films. Both of these animated movies are incredible, and I think if anyone has a problem with the dark knight, they should at least admit that the Amazing Spiderman movies are better. Both versions of Spiderman are amazing, and I am glad that the comic books aren’t dying down as much as some people would love to see them.

These are my favorite three comic book films in a row, and while they are not the best of the bunch, they do have their moments. I’m not going to lie to you, I had high hopes for The Dark Knight Rises but to be honest, I wasn’t until the trailers came out. Seeing those amazing Batman scenes made me wish that we had a third Amazing Spiderman film right now. While it is not as good as the first two, I still think they are fantastic films and I look forward to future Spiderman films.


My favorite animated comic book movie right now is Batman V Superman: The Movie. If you want to know what happens in the movie, then you need to check out the Batman V Superman Review, I have that movie saved on my DVR. In my opinion, Superman is much better suited for an animated film, as he seems more appealing to kids and adults alike. I am also a big fan of Tomatsu’s Bleach franchise, so the wonder of this adaptation doesn’t surprise me at all. I am hoping for a great Batman V Superman movie and hope that Man Of Steel gets a lot of love. For more information, feel free to check out my blog.
