‘Black Panther’ Was Rotten Tomatoes Best Reviewed 2018 Wide Release

Dragon Ball Z Black Panther Killmonger Michael B. Jordan Stan LeeSince its release last spring, Black Panther has brought in a lot of critical acclaim and praise, not the least of which includes its current Tomatometer score of 97 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. But the Ryan Coogler-directed Marvel Studios now has another win on its belt courtesy of Rotten Tomatoes.

See, Rotten Tomatoes has its “Golden Tomato Awards” that bring together and celebrate the films of the year. For 2018, Black Panther won the Golden Tomato Award not merely for the Best Reviewed Movie of 2018, but the Best Wide-Release of 2018. So chances are that doesn’t factor in smaller releases for flicks like independent films.

Rounding out the top five included Mission: Impossible- FalloutBlackKklansman,  Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and A Star Is Born. Even above other recent Marvel Studios releases like Avengers: Infinity War and Ant-Man & the WaspBlack Panther remains the king. And coupled with its current award nominations, that train may not stop anytime soon. Well, at least not until the Oscars are over, anyway.

Here’s the original tweet celebrating the Rotten Tomatoes success for Black Panther:

Previous1 of 10

Superhero Cinema 2018 Black Panther Avengers Thanos The Incredibles Aquaman2018 has gone by too fast. It seems like yesterday when the beginning of the new year was upon us, and the advent of having so many superhero movies hitting theaters seemed like a dream come true for every fanboy and fangirl. It’s also funny to look back and remember that although we ended up with a whopping nine major theatrical superhero movies, we almost had eleven. Sadly, Fox delayed both Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants to 2019 instead.

Even with those two films delayed, 2018 was still a massive year not just at the box office, but for the continued advancement of the genre on a number of levels. Whether it was through the cultural significance of a film like Black Panther or the exciting animated adventures of Incredibles 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there was no shortage of exciting superhero stories told on the big screen this year.

Here are the theatrical superhero films of 2018, ranked from worst to best. You can start the gallery by clicking “Next.”
