As explained in our recent ranking of 2017’s superhero movies, this year was one of the finest ever for comic book cinematic entertainment. All three major franchises – the MCU, DCEU and Fox’s X-Men universe – produced some of the best entries in the field that, arguably, we’ve ever seen.
And within those amazing movies comes amazing moments and scenes. Every one of the six big superhero releases this year contained a smattering of hilarious, heartbreaking, thrilling, even chilling sequences. There was great action – like Spider-Man: Homecoming‘s ferry scene – great moments of comedy – anything involving Korg in Thor: Ragnarok – and just plain old-fashioned superhero goodness – Justice League‘s Superman vs. Flash race.
But what are the 10 best comic book movie moments of the lot? After much careful consideration, we’ve managed to whittle it down to the very finest superhero scenes of the year. There were a lot of great moments that unfortunately didn’t make it onto our list, but we feel these 10 represent the best that the genre had to offer in 2017.
