Ranking DCEU Movies

List items

  • This should not surprise anybody. This has been the best DCEU movie so far. I liked almost everything about this movie - I even liked the villain.

  • While it didn't have a great villain - and it could have had better characterization for some characters - it was an overall good movie.

  • I actually liked this movie. I like this interpretation of Superman... for the most part.

  • This was hard for me. I wanted to put this last, but I was won over by the Ultimate Edition. Despite the terrible execution of Lex Luthor, it made up for it by having a good Batman and Alfred, and setting up something potentially good.

  • While this might be last, I don't hate it... though I do hate Joker. Waller was okay, and the overall plot was awful. But I still enjoyed it.

I'm surprised they are doing a SS sequel and a Joker movie, less of that Joker would be much better. Even the Gotham tv show "Joker" is far superior to Leto.

I expect it's a good list, I just haven't seen Wonder Woman yet.

@pikahyper: There's a Suicide Squad sequel in the making?

@cloudguy: that's what I read yesterday when I found out about the Joker movie by Scorsese.

@pikahyper: Interesting, I hop the sequel will be better than the original.

I found out about the Joker film earlier today. I'm hoping it will be interesting and not a true origin film.

Talk about putting the cart before the horse. You don't even have a solo Batman movie yet; now you make a solo Joker movie? It's absurd.

Now that Wonder Woman was a success, hope now rests on Justice League being good.

Agree with your list completely I love man steel to me that was wonderful film and Wonder Woman was just brilliant all around good film turn around for DCEU suicide squad Was not that good but I did enjoy it for what it was a good popcorn plot not really important good movie lol if that make sense and BVS well you said it best the ultimate edition was good it made the overall movie better for me but still a huge let down for me but I can't wait to see your list and thoughts when justice league come out

@jedixman: even more absurd for them to have separate continuities, everyone these days expects a shared universe thanks to Marvel (and it works better anyways), creating a new branch outside the DCEU is just going to confuse the general audience even more then they are now with all the different versions of characters from tv, cartoons, movies, video games, merch and comics.

I have low expectations for the Justice League movie, the solo movies are either really bad or really good, rarely inbetween but now something the size of JL with so many characters I can't see them handling it very well especially in a single two-three hour movie, they barely pulled off the Trinity in BvS and then there wasn't really a "team" in SS.

I think my order would be:

  1. Man of Steel
  2. BvS Ultimate Edition
  3. Wonder Woman
  4. Suicide Squad

*runs away before people get upset that Wonder Woman isn't in first or second*

I actually have yet to see SS, but I agree more-or-less with the list. I personally put WW and MoS on par with each other
