Top comic book and superhero movies on Netflix UK

Following the release of Captain America: Civil War, we put on our cape and pick up our stack of graphic novels to round up the best comic book and superhero movies on Netflix UK.
Iron Man Three
Marvel’s best film to date proves that superhero blockbusters can still be character-driven dramas – and funny to boot. A witty script, Robert Downey Jr. in full motormouth mode and events taking place at Christmas? It’s no surprise that this is a Shane Black movie.
Zack Snyder’s adaptation of Alan Moore’s iconic graphic novel is about as close as the big screen could ever get to depicting its subversive subject matter. The end result may be divisive, but it’s certainly a unique sight to behold.
Billy Zane – Billy Zane! – dons a purple lycra suit to bring this retro comic book icon to the screen. In this underrated 1990s adventure, The Phantom finds himself up against a master criminal, who’s trying to acquire a trio of mystical skulls with magical powers. A film in which our masked hero rides a horse through a waterfall to get to his secret base, this is silly, light-hearted, old-fashioned fun. Did we mention Billy Zane in purple lycra?
