Black Panther Voted Greatest Superhero Movie Ever: Rolling Stone’s Controversial Top 50 List”


In a stunning revelation, the Academy Award-winning Marvel masterpiece, Black Panther, has been hailed as the greatest superhero movie of all time in a recent poll conducted by Rolling Stone. However, this accolade has stirred a wave of discontent among fans of Zack Snyder’s works.

Rolling Stone’s list of the top 50 superhero movies ever made has sparked controversy by ranking Black Panther at number one, while placing Zack Snyder’s Justice League all the way at the bottom, at number fifty. Astonishingly, this wasn’t the original order, as the list was mistakenly shared in reverse, putting Justice League on the top spot initially.

Though Zack Snyder’s Justice League has garnered a dedicated fanbase, the initial ‘Top 10’ list included some debatable choices, such as 2007’s Ghost Rider, 1975’s Infra-Man, the first Thor movie, and 2010’s Megamind. Fortunately, the list has now been corrected, unveiling a much more sensible top ten, with Black Panther leading the pack. The revised lineup includes fan-favorites like Spider-Man 2, the original Superman from 1978, and Christopher Nolan’s groundbreaking Batman film, The Dark Knight.

The newly arranged top ten now stands as follows: Black Panther (2018), Spider-Man 2 (2004), Logan (2017), Avengers: Endgame (2019), Superman (1978), Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018), The Dark Knight (2008), Thor: Ragnarok (2017), Wonder Woman (2017), and finally, The Incredibles (2004). While some may still question certain choices and placements, these movies have rightfully earned their spots at the pinnacle of superhero cinema.

Beyond the top ten, the list features an array of notable superhero films, including Iron Man (2008), X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014), Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), Deadpool (2016), and the animated classic Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993). Other intriguing entries such as Hellboy (2004), The Crow (1994), V for Vendetta (2005), Unbreakable (2000), and Robocop (1987) also make appearances.

Regarding DC’s cinematic universe, only The Suicide Squad (2021) stands alongside Wonder Woman in the top rankings. Batman Begins (2005), The Dark Knight Rises (2012), and last year’s The Batman are among the other featured DC films. Fans of movies like Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice might be left disappointed by their placement on the list.

As for Black Panther, the MCU gem directed by Ryan Coogler, co-written with Joe Robert Cole, and starring the late Chadwick Boseman, continues to reign supreme as the highest-rated movie in the Marvel franchise. The movie takes audiences on a thrilling journey to the African nation of Wakanda, where King T’Challa faces a conflict that puts the fate of his kingdom and the world at stake.

Met with critical acclaim and nominated for seven awards at the 91st Academy Awards, winning three, Black Panther boasts an impressive 96% score on Rotten Tomatoes. Last year, a highly anticipated sequel, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, graced the silver screen, further solidifying the movie’s impact and legacy in the superhero genre.
