All 6 ‘WORLDS OF DC’ Movies, Ranked

Now that I’ve finally got around to re-watching Wonder Woman and writing up a review to slot safely between Suicide Squad and Justice League, it’s finally time to rank ALL SIX WORLDS OF DC MOVIES!

Which, to be honest, compared to the ‘Ranking All 20 Marvel Cinematic Universe Movies’, doesn’t sound quite so impressive. But still, it’ll be fun, and the list will obviously grow with the release of Shazam!, Wonder Woman 1984, Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) and The Batman.


When I first saw this movie, I actually enjoyed it. Oh, how times change. Upon repeat viewing (of the extended cut, this time around), I realised this film is ruddy awful.

The proximity to Dawn of Justice‘s release at the time must have coloured my opinion, because watching this film on its own highlights that it’s poorly paced and poorly written, with terrible characters and an absolutely awful villain. Yet another CGI mess comes to terrorise our heroes – why? And why Enchantress’ brother of all people? Who’s greenlighting this nonsense?!

And then, on top of all of that, the film also somehow manages to be really boring. The first fifteen minutes are fun, but after that, this film is a huge slog.

I remember when this film came out, I had no real interest in seeing it. I wasn’t really all that big on Superman, and much preferred the heroes over at Marvel, and the films that had begun spinning out of their series. An exception, of course, was Batman, and as such I had loved The Dark Knight series (there was a point during my teenage years where I would even watch Dark Knight every Saturday evening after bringing food home from the takeaway I worked at).

But then my friends invited me along to see it, and I instantly fell in love. And not only did I fall in love with the film, but I also began to fall in love with the character of Superman.
