Part 2. [Review] Top 8 DC Movies That Have Released
Although DC properties haven't always maintained a hold on superhero movie dominance, DC Comics have always been in a very important position in the field of superhero comics. There are still many successful and classical DC inspired movies. Therefore, we'd take a look back, the 8 best high ranking DC movies that have released.
Top 1. The Dark Knight
Batman and the Joker are two characters that perfectly reflect the contradictions and choices between good and evil, thus making the best comic and superhero movie in history. "The Dark Knight" not only created the feeling of classical tragedy but also discussed terrorism, cross-border power, and other contemporary American hot topics.
Top 2. Wonder Woman
"Wonder Woman" breaks away from the dullness and monotony that most DC movies would contain, and the emotional thread between wonder woman and the human characters is filled with sparks. Once again, the movie is about that universal theme - being a hero is never about invulnerability; it's about courage, commitment, and hope for a better world.
Top 3. Batman Begins
The film is the restart of the Batman series, which opened a completely independent series for it. Nolan takes the Batman series to a new level, fully explaining why Bruce Wayne became a Batman: overcoming inner fear, arming himself, adhering to the moral bottom line and incomparable possessiveness.
Top 4. Superman Return
Superman Return continues the plot of the fourth Superman episode in 1987, which is centered on superman's feelings and responsibilities. Compared with the Superman series, which always takes action fighting as its biggest selling point, Superman Return pays more attention to the reflection of Superman as an ordinary person, even vulnerable and helpless. This kind of Superman, though is not perfect, is more real and more popular with movie fans.
Top 5. Aquaman
In Aquaman, James Wan has gathered almost all types of elements that can arouse the audience's attention as the selling point and creates an entertaining movie that integrates action, science fiction, love, adventure, terror and other elements together, fully satisfying the audience's sensory expectations.
Top 6. Justice League
Justice League, the story of the superheroes union under DC comics such as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern and so on, is merged to construct an increasingly rich world system. The heroes who fight alone wake up and unite with each other to defeat the strong enemy.
Top 7. Man of Steel
Man of Steel overturns all previous works. The audience will see a Superman they have never seen before, witnessing his hesitation and growth. The movie may not focus on depth, warmth, and sense of humor, but it has already been a spectacular science fiction movie with grand, sentimental, operatic style. It tells the story of the origin of Superman that fits this era and opens a popular series of Superman movies.
Top 8. The Lego Movie
"The Lego Movie" is a 3D animated film, which is a pleasant, interesting and fast-paced film that will satisfy both adult audiences and children. The richness of the film's details can be described as dazzling. The objects, characters, and scenery in the movie are all created with Lego toys.
In 2008, Marvel started its own flourishing period with Iron Man, which was the beginning of the Marvel universe, while DC expanded the universe in 2014. So DC lagged behind Marvel a lot in terms of movies, including some later movies that failed to compete with MCU and are now trying to catch up. Will DC movies overtake Marvel movies? We'll just have to wait and see.
