Just tried to dunk on the new Lex Luthor image by asking if that was Jon Cryer only to realize in horror that Yes, It Is Him

You know, I sort of just casually watch the CW Superhero shows (usually when the seasons end up on Netflix) and I admit I was a little dismissive of the casting of Jon Cryer as Lex Luthor when I heard about it…

I'm sorry, but my reaction to the Jon Cryer lex Luthor photo is: LOL. Maybe in action it'll prove me wrong, but I'm also fairly behind on that show so… *shrug*

The Superhero Movies Of 2018, Ranked From Worst To Best
2018 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 9 theatrical superhero films of 2018, ranked from worst to best. You can start the gallery by clicking “Next.”
