The Top Ten Comic Book Movies For 2012

top ten comic book movies

The comics industry has had a lot of great highs and lows over the last decade, but it seems that now the top ten comic book movies are all headed in the same direction. Every time there is a new superhero movie, people want to know what will be topping the box office charts. Luckily we have a handful of films right now that are going to have this done. So, let’s take a look at what we can expect for this year and beyond.

The Dark Knight – Top On The List Of Top Ten Comic Book Movies

First up on our list of top ten comic book movies is “The Dark Knight”. This film has been receiving rave reviews from critics and fans. It has a lot of exciting action sequences, and it is directed by Christian Bale, who has a knack for bringing these types of roles.

Two other films on this year’s list are” Guardians of the Galaxy” and” Transformers”. Both of these are going to earn the movie theaters a lot of money, and they also seem to be heading to the top ten comic book movies at the domestic level as well. Of course, the overall total gross of the two films won’t be nearly as high as the opening weekend for the “Dark Knight”. But, with the way that this franchise has been expanding lately it could very well earn the $1 billion mark during its opening weekend.

Guardians of the Galaxy


One other superhero movie that looks to be headed to the top ten list is “Guardians of the Galaxy”. This comic book film just has a ton of promise. With the recent success of “Guardians of the Galaxy”, it is only a matter of time before we start seeing some huge financial results out of this franchise. It is also worth remembering that there is already a sequel already in the works as well. That being said, it will be interesting to see how this one does in the box office.

Finally, I want to touch on the end of this year’s top ten comic book movies. There are a few worthy candidates for this spot, but ultimately “Man of Steel” will win out. I’m not saying that “Dead Zero” shouldn’t worry anyone. But “Man of Steel” has a lot riding on its shoulders.

Dead Zero And The Wolverine

One other film like “Dead Zero” that I think is absolutely worth the watch is “The Wolverine” starring Hugh Jackman. This one star studded action-adventure has a lot of intrigue as the main character is back in his roots in this action-filled movie. It is my favorite of the comic’s origin story.

That concludes our look at this year’s top comic book movies. I’m excited to see what next year has in store for us. The New 52 has changed the superhero game forever with the release of ” Gotham City Dark “and “The Dark Knight Rises. With the release of “Man of Steel” it looks like DC will once again be dominating the comic book movie industry. Are you ready to check out some of my favorite dark knight films this summer?
