Top 25 highest-grossing superhero movie adaptations( Universal / August 16, 2013 )
There is no bigger movie genre than adaptations of superhero comic books. They make billions of dollars around the world, and seem to keep getting bigger. With the sky seemingly being the limit, we've compiled the Top 25 highest-grossing superhero movies of all time.
"Kick-Ass" wasn't able to crack the Top 25, but its new sequel has quite a bit more of a promotional machine behind it, plus a built-in fan base who discovered the movie on DVD. Can "Kick-Ass 2" do what the first couldn't?
