It’s no secret that superhero movies have gone a long way from inception, from the first Superman movie to the oft ridiculed 90’s Batman, up until the present. Along with this evolution comes the quality of the movies from campy depictions to the more grounded, realistic types, even reflecting the current views and political situations of present society.
With this evolution, story-telling has evolved and even includes complex scenes and sets. Superhero movies have likewise upped the ante when it comes to the opening scenes, after all these opening scenes setup the ensuing proceedings in the movie. While there are tons of lists there listing the best superhero movies, we here at geekendgladiators have decided to list down the best opening scenes in superhero movies, since we know that not all good opening scenes necessarily mean that the movies a hit.
Without further ado, here’s our 5 best opening scenes from superhero movies.

Spider-man: Homecoming finally hit theaters this week, and just like any other superhero flick, there’s bound to be a few easter eggs here and there.
