Almost two years ago, we published a list of 10 comic book movies every geek should see. Our original list included: Superman, Batman, The Crow, Blade, X-Men, Spiderman, Sin City, V for Vendetta, 300, and Iron Man (Hellboy and Constantine were honorable mentions). However, a lot of really good comic book movies have been released in the past couple years, so we thought it was time to revisit this list.
Here is a list of 10 MORE must see movies based on comic books. After you watch the first 10, make sure to watch these too. They are listed in chronological order. Enjoy.
