10. Morbius

Given that Morbius isn't exactly a household brand like Spider-Man, it's a strange choice to base a movie on him, but the character does have a rich comic book history that could have made for a truly fantastic, original movie.

9. Samaritan

Sylvester Stallone has experience with superhero movies; he appeared as Ravager Stakar Ogord in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and provided the voice of King Shark in The Suicide Squad.

8. Thor: Love and Thunder

The most contentious movie on the list is probably Thor: Love and Thunder. Gorr the God Butcher, played by Christian Bale, is one of the better antagonists to emerge from the MCU.

7. Werewolf by Night

It's the inaugural Marvel Studios Special Presentation, so technically it's not a movie, but we'll call it close enough (as is the second Special Presentation, which is still to come on this list).

6. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness 

With its promise of a "Multiverse of Madness" limited to three realities, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness isn't particularly different from the typical MCU fare.

5. Black Adam

The plot is weak and riddled with problems, for example, how does a character who has been magically imprisoned for hundreds of years become fluent in a language that didn't even exist when he was free? However, Black Adam is a blast.

4. Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special

The second Marvel Special Presentation, which ushers James Gunn's eclectic company into the Christmas season, is wholly deserving of the descriptor "special."

3. DC League of Super-Pet

Speaking of enjoyment, I must mention how much fun the animated, kid-friendly DC League of Super-Pets is. Together, Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart portray Krypto, the dog of Superman (John Krasinski), and Ace, the canine of Batman (Keanu Reeves).

2. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

No one should be surprised that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is in the top two. The movie begins as the Wakandan people bid their monarch T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) farewell and as the world learns about Wakanda and its vibranium use.

1. The Batman

It's a tie. The Batman succeeds in breaking away from its countless predecessors to present a wholly original interpretation of the character and his backstory.
