20 of the best comic book movies you can watch at home right now
Super movies for super movie lovers.
Before we get to the list, there is a difference between comic book movies and superhero movies.
Not all comic books are about superheroes (just, y'know, most of them), because some are just a medium of telling some great stories, and for the sake of ease, we're also including "graphic novels" under this banner.
Some great adaptations like 30 Days of Night and A History of Violence didn't make the list, simply because they don't appear to be readily available on streaming or PVOD services here.
Also, as is always the case with our lists, all movies and platforms correct at the time of publication, but are subject to change.
So with all of that in mind, here are the 20 best comic book movies you can watch at home right now.
