If you’re a fan of superhero movies, you’re probably familiar with the Marvel and DC Universes. These two comic book powerhouses have been battling it out on the big screen for years, with each releasing a slew of movies featuring their most iconic characters.

But just how many movies are there in Marvel and DC? Let’s take a closer look.

Marvel Movies

Marvel Studios has been producing movies since 2008’s “Iron Man,” which kicked off the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Since then, they have released a total of 23 films as of 2021. Here’s a list of all the Marvel movies in order of release:

DC Movies

DC Comics has been bringing their characters to the big screen for much longer than Marvel, but they have not yet established a cohesive universe like the MCU. Instead, they have released several standalone movies featuring their most popular heroes.

As of 2021, there are a total of 29 DC movies. Here’s a list of all the DC movies in order of release:

  • Salkind / Alexander Superman films:
    • Superman (1978)

    • Superman II (1980) [Richard Donner cut released in 2006]

    • Superman III (1983)

    • Supergirl (1984)

    • Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987)

    • Batman films:

As you can see, Marvel has released fewer movies overall but has established a more cohesive universe with interconnected storylines. DC, on the other hand, has released more standalone movies but has yet to establish a shared universe that rivals the MCU. Regardless of which side you’re on, there’s no denying that both Marvel and DC have produced some truly epic superhero movies over the years.
