Throughout these days we have selected the best horror movies , also comedy and the action genre , but today we are going to go something more concrete: the superhero cinema.
No one can argue that these characters have reigned freely in Hollywood during these years and nothing indicates that they will give up their crown in the near future. Below you will find a selection of the 29 best superhero movies of this decade that began in 2010 and ends in this 2023 which is just a few days away.
Before leaving you with them I would like to emphasize that it is a personal selection without the intention of sitting a chair , which I imagine that some absences will be striking to some. It is impossible for all of us to like the same thing and the world would be very bored to take the case.
Direction : James Wan
Cast : Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson, Willem Dafoe, Nicole Kidman, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Temuera Morrison, Dolph Lundgren, Michael Beach, Ludi Lin, Graham McTavish, Patrick Cox, Randall Park, Djimon Hounsou, Leigh Whannell, Sophia Forrest, Natalia Safran, Tahlia Jade Holt
A delirious hobby that is willing to reach any point for the viewer to have a great time and without any fear of ridicule – in which he falls on occasion, everything must be said. James Wan creates an interesting universe around a character who knows how to take advantage of all the virtues of Jason Momoa instead of asking him for something he is unable to give.
‘Batman: The Lego Movie’
Address : Chris McKay
Less ingenious than ‘The Lego movie’ but in my opinion much more fun. It works like a hobby shot, but it also offers a succulent portrait of the Batman. Obviously, not all gags work, but most do, something to keep in mind given their abundance.
Direction : Alejandro González Iñárritu
Cast : Michael Keaton, Emma Stone, Edward Norton, Zach Galifianakis, Naomi Watts, Amy Ryan, Andrea Riseborough, Lindsay Duncan, Merritt Wever, Joel Garland, Natalie Gold, Clark Middleton, Bill Camp, Teena Byrd, Anna Hardwick, Stefano Villabona
A film that takes the rise of superhero movies to get closer to the story of an actor who achieved fame by giving one of them but does not go through his best moment. The vibrant staging and its great cast, which highlights the work of Michael Keaton and Edward Norton – a pity that the latter never became the great star he deserved to be – are his two great strengths.
Direction : Ryan Coogler
Cast : Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis, Winston Duke, Daniel Kaluuya, Sterling K. Brown, Florence Kasumba, Letitia Wright, Phylicia Rashad, Sydelle Noel, John Kani, Sebastian Stan, Stan Lee, Marija Juliette Abney
The first film starring an African superhero at the MCU brought a different energy to this universe. It is true that the protagonist is not as charismatic as others, but he plays comfortably and is very well accompanied. In addition, the film has a first level villain, something that usually fails in Marvel productions.
‘Big Hero 6’
Direction : Chris Williams and Don Hall
A great cross between the forms of Disney animated cinema and the adventures of Marvel superheroes. It may not be a big deal in the plot, but it makes up for it with a spark and an unforgettable character like Baymax.
‘Captain America: Civil War’
Direction : Joe and Anthony Russo
Cast : Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Sebastian Stan, Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Daniel Brühl, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, William Hurt, Emily VanCamp, Tom Holland, Frank Cricket, Martin Freeman, Marisa Tomei, John Kani, John Slattery, Hope Davis, Alfre Woodard, Stan Lee, Heidi Moneymaker, Gene Farber, Florence Kasumba
One of the most intense adventures of the MCU that distances itself from its equivalent in the world of the vignette to address the rivalry between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark from another point of view. Only the battle at the airport is already more enjoyable than most films that are released every year, but it is a very solid pastime in general that also brings an emotion that Marvel movies do not always have.
‘Captain America the First Avenger’
Direction : Joe Johnston
Cast : Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving, Hayley Atwell, Tommy Lee Jones, Sebastian Stan, Stanley Tucci, Dominic Cooper, Neal McDonough, Richard Armitage, David Bradley, Kenneth Choi, Natalie Dormer, Derek Luke, Jenna Coleman, JJ Feild, Bruno Ricci Laura Haddock, Samuel L. Jackson, Toby Jones, Lex Shrapnel, Michael Brandon, Martin Sherman, Oscar Pearce, William Hope, Nicholas Pinnock, Marek Oravec, Sam Hoare, Simon Kunz, Sophie Colquhoun, Doug Cockle, Ben Batt, Mollie Fitzgerald David McKail, Amanda Walker, Marcello Walton, Vincent Montuel, Fabrizio Santino, Anatole Taubman, Jan Pohl, Erich Redman, Rosanna Hoult, Kirsty Mather, James Payton, Ronan Raftery, Nick Hendrix, Luke Allen-Gale, Jack Gordon, Ben Uttley Kevin Millington, Peter Stark, Amanda Righetti, Nicole Evans, Rai Quartley, Adam Kent
An adventure film with a lot of charm that served to differentiate the character from the rest of Marvel superheroes and also to introduce a key mythology within the MCU. His touch in the old-fashioned way feels fabulous and also that there is someone behind the cameras who knows how to handle it well, but also be aware of the correctness of its distribution.
‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’
Direction : Joe and Anthony Russo
Cast : Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Redford, Sebastian Stan, Frank Grillo, Cobie Smulders, Emily Vancamp, Jenny Agutter, Toby Jones, Garry Shandling, Hayley Atwell, Georges St-Pierre, Maximiliano Hernández Pat Healy, Stan Lee, Callan Mulvey, Thomas Kretschmann, Raiden Integra, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson
I still think that it is the best MCU movie so far, opting for it to give a superheroic touch to the spy thrillers, a subgenre that updates impeccably. With a great balance between history, action and humor. Until then Marvel had managed quite well in the last two facets, but here it took a big step forward in the first.

Direction : Tim Miller
Cast : Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, Gina Carano, TJ Miller, Rachel Sheen, Brianna Hildebrand, Paul Lazenby, Sean Quan, Ben Wilkinson, Karan Soni, Naika Toussaint, Olesia Shewchuk, Kyle Cassie, Style Dayne, Fabiola Colmenero, Stan lee
A breath of fresh air to the superhero cinema, as the mercenary mercenary played by Reynolds fired jokes without cutting the slightest in the vocabulary, something that moved to the film at all levels. A hobby of first that left wanting more, but that lowered the level in the second installment.
Direction : Scott Derrickson
Cast : Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Mads Mikkelsen, Tilda Swinton, Benjamin Bratt, Michael Stuhlbarg, Scott Adkins, Zara Phythian, Alaa Safi, Katrina Durden, Amy Landecker, Dante Briggins, Daniel Eghan, Annarie Boor, Jill Buchanan, Stan Lee, Topo Wresniwiro, Umit Ulgen
Having an actor like Cumberbatch always helps, but the key is knowing how to introduce the magic into the MCU and get out of it. In addition, its outcome is outstanding leaving the usual excess visual effects to opt for a great occurrence of the protagonist.
‘The Dark Knight Rises’
Direction : Christopher Nolan
Cast : Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Marion Cotillard, Ben Mendelsohn, Morgan Freeman, Matthew Modine, Josh Stewart, Tom Conti, Burn Gorman, Alon Aboutboul, Daniel Sunjata, Juno Temple, Nestor Carbonell, Aidan Gillen, Brett Cullen, Cillian Murphy, Chris Ellis, Liam Neeson, Wade Williams, Josh Pence, Mark Killeen, Joey King, Courtney Munch, Ming Wang
A great conclusion to the epic dark knight trilogy. Lower the level with respect to its predecessor and probably the worst of the three, but being a very stimulating proposal that works as a shot until the first confrontation between Batman and Bane. Then it is somewhat more irregular, but many others would like to be at the level of the one that concerns us here.
‘Rise of the Guardians’
Direction : Peter Ramsey
Is it a superhero movie? To give a blunt yes is difficult, but we are facing a film that must be strongly claimed and that uses characters such as the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus or Jack Frost giving them a touch seems like a kind of variant of ‘The Avengers’. A curious cross between children’s pastime and blockbuster with a charm that very few films have had during this decade.
Address : M. Night Shyamalan
Cast : James McAvoy, Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, Sarah Paulson, Anya Taylor-Joy, Spencer Treat Clark, Shayna Ryan, Charlayne Woodard, Luke Kirby, Rob Yang, Brian Donahue, Adam David Thompson, Marisa Brown, Kyli Zion, Diana Silvers, M. Night Shyamalan, Nina Wisner, Serge Didenko, Russell Posner, Leslie Stefanson, Kimberly S. Fairbanks, Rosemary Howard, Johnny Hiram Jamison, Marc H. Glick, Brick Mason, Bostin Christopher, Ukee Washington, Brian Anthony Wilson, Tobias Segal, Tom DiNardo, Timothy Chivalette, Tim Duquette
The remarkable closure for a trilogy that for too long seemed that it was not going to happen from its excellent first installment, even today the best film of its director. A great cross between two worlds and a very interesting reflection on the concept of being a superhero. It does not reach the level of the first delivery, but it borders on a very good level.
‘Guardians of the Galaxy’
Direction : James Gunn
Cast : Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, John C. Reilly, Djimon Hounsou, Glenn Close, Benicio del Toro, Laura Haddock, Peter Serafinowicz, Ophelia Lovibond, Sean Gunn, Gregg Henry, Josh Brolin
One of the best entertainments of the decade by the conjunction of a James Gunn capable of printing such a personality to this saga that Disney had to recline after firing him and a wonderful cast that gives life to an unlikely group of superheroes with space to shine separately.
Direction : Todd Phillips
Cast : Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Bill Camp, Shea Whigham, Dante Pereira-Olson, Douglas Hodge, Jolie Chan, Bryan Callen, Brian Tyree Henry, Mary Kate Malat, Glenn Fleshler, Marc Maron, Josh Pais, Leigh Gill, Adrienne Lovette, Sharon Washington, Mandela Bellamy, David Iacono, Matthias Sebastiun Garry, Mick O’Rourke, Evan Rosado, Caillou Pettis, Sondra James, Gary Gulman, Kim Brockington, Jamaal Burcher, John Cashin, Ryan Funigiello, Annie Pisapia, Ray Iannicelli, Tony D. Head, Scott Martin, Dj Nino Carta, Mark Lotito, Jason John Cicalese, Keith Buterbaught, Ray Rosario, Rose Maria Wilde, Ben Heyman, Emmanuel Rodriguez, Vincent Cucuzza, Celeste Pisapia, Marko Caka, Alexandra López Galán, Bob Leszczak, Rich Petrillo, Thomas W. Stewart
A worldwide phenomenon totally associated with the extraordinary interpretation of Phoenix. In the background it is still a cross between several works of Scorsese, but it is also the closest that DC has been to evolve the adult tone printed by Nolan to Batman who later Zack Snyder did not take full advantage of.
‘Iron Man 3’
Direction : Shane Black
Cast : Robert Downey Jr., Ben Kingsley, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, James Badge Dale, Stephanie Szostak, Ty Simpkins, Wang Xueqi, Jon Favreau, William Sadler, Miguel Ferrer, Fan Bingbing, Yvonne Zima, Give Dickey, Ashley Hamilton, Stan Lee
Marvel is often criticized for being safe, but I still remember the barrage of complaints about the great twist that was taken here by the Mandarin. Very marked for being a Shane Black movie, we are facing a wonderful hobby during its first two acts that ends up exhausting in its final stretch due to visual excesses, but it is still much better than what not few said at the time of its premiere .
Direction : James Mangold
Cast : Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Richard E. Grant, Doris Morgado, Han Soto, Julia Holt, Elise Neal, Al Colonel
The only adventure of the Patrol X universe included in the list – ‘X-Men: First generation’ stayed close but did not pass the cut. An impressive farewell for Wolverine – and for Charles Xavier – with a touch of western and that left everything open to continue the story without him, but it seems that it will never be done. A pity, because Dafne Keen is also great.
‘The Incredibles 2’
Address : Brad Bird
He arrived too late to bet on a work perhaps too continuous with the excellent first installment, but that did not stop Pixar from giving us another fun adventure that gives the reins to Elastigirl. You need to risk a little more, but you have a great time watching it.
Direction : Joss Whedon
Cast : Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Clark Gregg, Gwyneth Paltrow, Stellan Skarsgard, Paul Bettany, Maximiliano Hernández, Alexis Denisof Jerzy Skolimowski, Tina Benko, Powers Boothe, Harry Dean Stanton, Stan Lee, Jeff Wolfe, Jenny Agutter, Arthur Darbinyan, Donald Li, Warren Kole, Alicia Sixtos, Jesse Garcia, Dieter Riesle, Kenneth Tigar, Walter Perez, Josh Cowdery, Ashley Johnson, Robert Clohessy, Enver Gjokaj, Robin Swoboda, Jamie McShane, Michael Zhang, Romy Rosemont, James Eckhouse, Pat Kiernan, Thomas Roberts, Damion Poitier
The movie that changed everything for Marvel. This universe had already proven its profitability, but it was Whedon who took it to another level of which he never went down, uniting all of them in an almost impeccable way – that of Hawkeye arranged something in the sequel – to leave us a tape with unstoppable fun and one last impressive act that at the time was little less than a dream come true.
Address : M. Night Shyamalan.
Cast : James McAvoy, Anya Taylor-Joy, Betty Buckley, Brad William Henke, Haley Lu Richardson, Sebastian Arcelus, Lyne Renee, Neal Huff, Jessica Sula, Peter Patrikios, Bruce Willis, Izzie Coffey, Ukee Washington, M. Night Shyamalan, Robert Michael Kelly, Rosemary Howard, Jerome Gallman, Kate Jacoby, Kash Goins, Roy James Wilson, Christopher Lee Philips, Julie Potter, Ameerah Briggs, Nakia Dillard, Robin Rieger, Emlyn Elisabeth Morinelli
The final effect hit making it a sequel to ‘The Protected’ marked the film completely, but before it had worked very well as the story of two injured animals, one of them played by an impressive James McAvoy in the different personalities that his character has . It would be more like a supervillain movie, but if ‘Joker’ is here, it couldn’t be missing ‘Split’
Address : Dean Israelite
Cast : Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, Ludi Lin, Becky G., Elizabeth Banks, Bryan Cranston, Bill Hader, Matt Shively, Cody Kearsley, David Denman, Robert Moloney, Anjali Jay, Sarah Gray, Morgan Taylor Campbell, Caroline Cave, Emily Maddison, Kayden Magnuson, Lisa Berry, Wesley MacInnes, John Stewart, Clayton Chitty, Austin Obiajunwa, Kenneth Tynan, Amitai Marmorstein, Garry Chalk, Donald Adams, Patrick Sabongui, Erica Cerra, Drew Tanner, Fiona Vroom, Sophie Lui, Phillip Reed, Jason David Frank, Amy Jo Johnson, Jason Tremblay
An almost miraculous reboot, since it respects the franchise but gives it a much more interesting touch in relation to the characters, making them reach important and you want to know more about them in a sequel that looks like it will not come to be done A good hobby that knows when to be spectacular, when to boost humor and also the moments when you simply have to let history and its protagonists breathe.
Direction: David F. Sandberg
Cast : Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Jack Dylan Grazer, Mark Strong, Grace Fulton, David J. MacNeil, Michelle Borth, Djimon Hounsou, Adam Brody, Ross Butler, Natalia Safran, Marta Milans, DJ Cotrona, Ian Chen, Cassandra Ebner, Cooper Andrews, Faithe Herman, Caroline Korycki, David Kohlsmith, Ava Preston, Lovina Yavari, Andi Osho, Cyndy Day, Angelica Lisk-Hann, Stephannie Hawkins, Evan Marsh, Lotta Losten, Carson MacCormac
DC playing see Marvel with the most satisfactory result. A kind of superhero variant of ‘Big’ that is very clear about what he wants to achieve and achieves it. A light proposal that cares less about the visual section, where it meets but does not fascinate, to enhance its virtues.
Direction : Jon Watts
Cast : Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Robert Downey Jr., Jon Favreau, Marisa Tomei, Jacob Batalon, Zendaya, Tony Revolori, Laura Harrier, Angourie Rice, Kenneth Choi, Michael Barbieri, Logan Marshall-Green, Donald Glover, Tyne Daly, Martin Starr, Hannibal Buress, Abraham Attah, Michael Mando, Bokeem Woodbine, Chris Evans, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tiffany Espensen, Garcelle Beauvais, Stan Lee, Stewart Steinberg, Andy Powers
One of those movies that you enjoy so much that you wouldn’t mind watching it again almost as soon as it was over. With a magnificent casting – we already knew that Holland had been a success, but Michael Keaton also embroiders it – and nailing the ideal tone to maximize the charm of the climber.
‘Spider-Man: Away from home’
Direction : Jon Watts
Cast : Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Jake Gyllenhaal, Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, Angourie Rice, Remy Hii, Martin Starr, JB Smoove, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Cobie Smulders, Numan Acar, Yasmin Mwanza, Joshua Sinclair-Evans, Toni Garrn, Peter Billingsley, Nicholas Gleaves, Claire Rushbrook, Michael de Roos, Jeroen van Koningsbrugge, JK Simmons, Joseph Long, Hiten Patel
A sequel slightly lower than its predecessor but used to degrease the MCU after the intense final of ‘Avengers: Endgame’. It is in its own way an intermediate step for both Marvel and the trepamuros after what he proposes in the magnificent cliffhanger with which he says goodbye, but before he had already played very well, twisting the role of mentor that Robert Downey Jr assumed in the first installment and which falls here on Jake Gyllenhaal.
‘Spider-Man: A new universe’
Direction : Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, Rodney Rothman
A small miracle that captures the essence of the trepamuros playing in addition to wonder with the idea of the existence of several universes. In addition, visually it is a wonder far from what Hollywood has accustomed us lately and that serves to make it as close as the superhero cinema has been to capture the magic of the comic on the big screen.
‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2: The Power of Electro’
Address: Marc Webb
Cast: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Sally Field, Colm Feore, Felicity Jones, Marton Csokas, Paul Giamatti, Embeth Davidtz, Campbell Scott, Denis Leary, Sarah Gadon, Chris Zylka, Chris Cooper, Mark Doherty, Stan Lee, Skyler Gisondo
Unfairly beaten, to the point that it ended up ending a much more entertaining version of the trepamuros than most point out. On the one hand, the way to handle the relationship between the protagonist and Gwen Stacy has a lot of hook, reaching its zenith in the vibrant and exciting outcome, but also knows how to portray better features of the trepamuro that were not captured quite well in the previous delivery with Andrew Garfield.
Direction : Anthony and Joe Russo
Distribution: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Josh Brolin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chadwick Boseman, Tom Holland, Zoe Saldana, Evangeline Lilly Tessa Thompson, René Russo, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Tom Hiddleston, Danai Gurira, Benedict Wong, Pom Klementieff, Dave Bautista, Letitia Wright, John Slattery, Tilda Swinton, Jon Favreau, Hayley Atwell, Natalie Portman, Marisa Tomei, Taika Waititi, Angela Bassett, Michelle Pfeiffer, William Hurt, Cobie Smulders, Sean Gunn, Winston Duke, Linda Cardellini, Maximiliano Hernández, Frank Grillo, Hiroyuki Sanada, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, James D’Arcy, Jacob Batalon, Vin Diesel Bradley Cooper, Gwyneth Paltrow, Robert Redford, Chris Pratt, Samuel L. Jackson, Ross Marquand, Emma Fuhrmann,Michael James Shaw, Terry Notary, Yvette Nicole Brown, Callan Mulvey, Taylor Patterson, Ken Jeong, Ty Simpkins, Stan Lee
A point and apart for the MCU that will be remembered forever thanks to its final stretch, although all of it is a great climax that also allows unexpected things such as the treatment of Thor’s character after the mistake made in the previous installment.
‘Avengers: Infinity War’
Direction : Anthony and Joe Russo
Cast : Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Pratt, Tom Holland, Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Chadwick Boseman, Pom Klementieff, Terry Notary, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Zoe Saldana, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tom Hiddleston, Cobie Smulders, Paul Bettany, Sebastian Stan, Peter Dinklage, Samuel L. Jackson, Benicio del Toro, Danai Gurira, Benedict Wong, Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle, Idris Elba, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, William Hurt, Stan Lee, Ross Marquand, Jacob Batalon, Ariana Greenblatt, Winston Duke, Marija Juliette Abney
Some small details stain a film that could have been the summit of the MCU, but one is always thinking that the freedom he enjoys is because later they will undo everything that is necessary. Despite this, it is an impressive adventure with a lot of scenes to remember. And it was worth waiting so long to see Thanos in all its splendor.
