Best-Reviewed Comic Book & Graphic Novel Movies 2019

It’s no big shock that Avengers: Endgame takes it all the way for this category, so let’s pay extra deference to the worthy comic book movies left in its wake. MCU digestif Spider-Man: Far From Home did its job picking up the Endgame pieces, Shazam! gave the DCEU a much needed Certified Fresh hit, and Captain Marvel was a cultural phenom. Ditto Joker, who proves, once again, comic books movies are no laughing matter.
