Warner Bros. began a renaissance for their superhero movies with the release of Wonder Woman over the summer, reversing the sour critical response to films like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad.
But the film wasn't just a well received among their DC Comics properties — it was one of the best reviewed superhero movies of all time. And Rotten Tomatoes has recognized that.
The movie review aggregator recently compiled a list of the overall top-rated superhero movies, and the Princess of Themyscira came out ahead of the competition.
Rotten Tomatoes' list was determined by an adjusted score to the Tomato Meter's normal percentage, using Bayesian inference to determine the movie's score based on the amount of reviews it has received.
With that method, Wonder Woman scored at 108.549%. Patty Jenkins' film barely beat out Logan (107.954%) and The Dark Knight (106.313%) to reign on the list. Those three top films regular Rotten Tomatoes ranking sit at 92%, 93%, and 94%, respectively.
While this might be surprising to some, Wonder Woman was a critical and box office hit with enough staying power to make it one of the most profitable films of the summer. The film beat out Spider-Man: Homecoming as well as previous WB films Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad in the domestic markets.
That commercial success was supported by the A CinemaScore ranking from audiences and the positive critical reception, who praised Jenkins' powerful vision and Gal Gadot's portrayal of Wonder Woman.
Other films in the top ten include Spider-Man: Homecoming at #4, Thor: Ragnarok at #5, Marvel's The Avengers at #6, Iron Man at #7, Captain America: Civil War at #8, The Incredibles at #9, and The LEGO Batman Movie at #10.0comments
All in all, the top ten is a very respectable list filled with modern classics in the superhero genre. But Wonder Woman manages to beat out all of the rest.
Fans will be able to see the character's return to the big screen when Justice League premieres in theaters on November 17.
