With Superhero movies now exaggerating the market, It is hard to ignore them. With Marvel literally dominating the Cinema with their 3-4 release every year, DC is also not shying back. With over a dozen superhero movies released, it’s hard to watch every one of them. So we made it easy by Ranking Every Superhero Movie from 2022, Worst to Best.
Ranking Every Superhero Movie from 2022, Worst to Best
Thor: Love and Thunder
Thor: Love and Thunder made it top of the list because it is undoubtedly the worst movie of 2022, not just in the superhero genre. Not only did the film fail to use Christian Bale’s talent as Gorr the God Butcher, but it also had one of the worst CGI. And we have not even talked about its atrocious comedy, the constant gags which went on and on, the loud goat jokes. After Thor: Ragnarok, everyone had high hope for Love and Thunder, But thanks to Taika Watiti, even Thor: The Dark World will seem like a masterpiece in front of Love and Thunder.
Our Rating 3/ 10
Sony should have released a 2-hour clip of Matt Smith dancing to “Have Segs” on a loop because that’s the only reason I was hooked to watch this movie. The movie’s weak plot and underdeveloped characters were not the only bad thing. The remotely decent special effects, And the acting. Who wouldn’t want to watch this cinematic masterpiece for two hours? The film was a box office bomb, Though it became a cultural meme among the fans, making it a Twitter trend. Sony thought that fans wanted to see it again, so they re-released it in theaters and bombed again much harder.
Our Rating 3/ 10
With all the Marvel and DC movies this year, Sylvester Stallone also tried his hand at making a superhero film. Though the film has heartwarming themes and decent performances, it was primarily predictable, with the same moralizing themes as every superhero movie.
Our Rating 4/ 10
The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special
The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special on Disney+ is an absolute treasure. It’s like a Marvel masterpiece, but with all the excitement and heart drained out of it.
Did Marvel make this just for that stupid Bucky’s Mechanical Arm Joke?
Fan Service at its Best.
Our Rating 5/ 10
The Hierarchy of power in the DC Universe changed, just not how Dwayne Johnson intended. I stepped into theaters with little to no hope that this was good, but the film had its moment. Who wouldn’t want to see The Rock playing The Rock again, Right? Leaving behind the bad acting chop by Dwayne Johnson, the film had an intense action scene, and the supporting cast was surprisingly good. Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fate and Aldis Hodge as Hawkman stole the show.
Our Rating 6/ 10
Werewolf by Night
Werewolf by Night was a surprisingly good TV special on Disney+. The lead performance is captivating, Using Black-and-white cinematography and fantastic action scenes were its stealing points. Despite the lack of originality, Werewolf by Night is a solid addition to the MCU.
Our Rating 6/ 10
DC League of Super-Pets
Featuring an all-star voice cast, including Dwayne Johnson as Krypto, a super-powered dog, and Kevin Hart as Ace, who becomes Ace the Bat-Hound after being adopted by Batman (Keanu Reeves). The film has impressive animation, action sequences, and genuine moments. Still, it may be too childish for some audiences.
Our Rating 6/ 10
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
With Sam Raimi taking the reign to direct his film, and Kevin Feige announcing that the movie will explore the horror genre, I had very high hopes for this. The movie was visually stunning, except for that 3rd eye of Doctor Strange in the end credit. With Elizabeth Olsen Returning as the menacing Wanda Maximoff and destroying the Illuminati heroes from Earth-838. Olsen’s performance as Wanda Maximoff brings a lot of depth and emotion to the role.
Xochitl Gomez’s chemistry with Benedict Cumberbatch felt a little out of touch. Gomez’s as American Chavez brought a sense of determination and charisma to the character, making her a relatable and likable hero. The only problem I had was the film’s duration, which was just 2 hours.
Our Rating 7/ 10
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
The whole idea of Black Panther should have been scrapped after the death of Chadwick Boseman. But it’s Hollywood; they are still milking Fast and Furious in the name of Paul Walker.
Still, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was this year’s surprisingly good superhero film. Filled with emotion and grief, though it wasn’t as good as the first film, It had a beautiful tribute to Chadwick. The film’s real star was Tenoch Huerta as Namor, bringing depth to the role and making Namor a challenging and believable villain.
Our Rating 8/ 10
The Batman, undoubtedly, is the best Superhero movie of 2022. With all the sh!t happening at Warner Bros studios, At least they managed to give one of the best Batman origin films.
One of the film’s key elements was its action scenes and a dark and gritty tone that fit the character well. Paul Dano as The Riddler was the show stealer; His scenes with Robert Pattinson’s Batman are some of the movie’s best parts. Pattinson does a great job as Bruce Wayne/Batman, bringing a brooding passion to the role. The supporting cast is also strong, with standout performances from Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman and Colin Farrel as Penguin.
