At #4 was a film not from 2017, but amazing all the same. The Dark Knight bagged the #4 spot in the best super hero movies of all time, with a total adjusted score of 106.229%. This show was incredible.
Coming at spot #3 is Thor: Ragnarok (105.858%), with box office smashes exceeding $200M in the US and well over $650 million worldwide. Just in its second week, it totaled up to $211.6m of box office success in the Northern American region (in 10 days!). Thor certainly hammered the hearts of the audience this time.

Going strong at #2 is LOGAN (2017) with a total adjusted score of 108.059%. Hugh Jackman’s portrayal as Wolverine tore through the screen. According to critics, the actor did a great performance, surprisingly, although violent Logan broke all the rules (thanks to director James Mangold).
But finally. Who runs the world? Girls! Yes, you’re right! Wonder Woman made it to the top of the list with an overall adjusted score of 108.76%. Critics’ consensus revealed that the movie succeeded on all counts, led by the charismatic, strong performance of Gal Gadot. This Patty Jenkins hit will be remembered as one of the best superhero movies ever.
