The Biggest Comic Book Movies Of 2017, Ranked From Worst To Best

Previous1 of 14

Comic Book Movies 2017 Star Wars The Last Jedi Logan Justice League2017 was quite the year for movies. Not only are the award shows stacked with some spectacular dramas to choose from, but us pop-culture nerds had quite the year too. Everyone from Wonder Woman to Thor had their own movie this year, and most of them were pretty good. At the end of the day though, not all movies are made equal, and some turned out infinitely better than others.

All of these stories have something in common, though: a focus on a group of heroes who are willing to do anything and sacrifice themselves for the greater good. The movies vary on how heroic the protagonists are and what kind of threat they have to fight, but they all do a good job at pushing their heroes and making them think outside the box to save the day.

Remember, this ranking is just one person’s opinion. If your favorite movie of the year is at the bottom of the list that doesn’t mean you have a bad taste in movies, it just means we don’t agree and I’d love to hear what you think in the comments after wards!
