Every DC Comics Movie Ranked From Worst to Best, Including 'Birds of Prey' and 'Joker'
How does the latest entry in the DC Extended Universe fare in our rankings?
While Marvel has spent the past decade overloading pop culture with new films, DC is really the original comic book movie brand. DC's presence in the cinema goes even further back than the original "Superman" film, with its popular weekly serials way back in the 1930s and '40s. For decades now we've gotten a steady diet of films based on the DC universe, culminating at this point in time with "Joker" and "Birds of Prey." So let's see how those new flicks stack up against the rest of DC's long history on the big screen.
