Every DC Comics Film, Ranked From Worst To Best Including ‘Wonder Woman’

The film legacy of DC Comics should never be understated, even as the maturing superhero genre continues to follow more diverse paths of success through comic book characters beyond DC’s iconic catalogue.

But not all DC movies are created equal, and there’s merit to reflecting on how these films measure up against one another as the DCEU approaches its fourth movie in the form of a solo Wonder Woman (and the crowd said, finally). This list attempts to do just that by holding every DC movie released in theaters to a consistent set of worthwhile standards, including the quality of the film itself, the onscreen performances, cultural relevance (both within and outside of box office considerations), overall impact, contributions to the genre at large, and originality.
