Top 5 Comic Book Movies (1998-2015)

Jason Book and I each run down our own list of our favorite live-action comic book movies from the era that began with Blade and recently ended with a whimper in Fantastic Four. But don't let the poor reviews of Fantastic Four fool you, there were way too many good movies in this timespan to fit into one video.

In the video we talk about our separate lists, which definitely contained some differences (only one of us had The Avengers, for example), but here is a rough version of our combined list:
  1. The Dark Knight (2008), directed by Christopher Nolan
  2. Spider-Man 2 (2004), directed by Sam Raimi
  3. Man of Steel (2013), directed by Zack Snyder
  4. Sin City (2005), directed by Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez
  5. The Avengers (2012), directed by Joss Whedon
  6. Iron Man (2008), directed by Jon Favreau
  7. X-Men (2000), directed by Bryan Singer
  8. V for Vendetta (2006), directed by James McTeigue
We also mentioned some other honorable mentions in the video. Previously, we covered the Top 5 for the earlier era of 1978-1997.

Now let the new era begin! Deadpool and especially Batman v Superman will get us started off next year in a big way.
