2017 was a crowded year for superhero movies, with Wonder Woman and Justice League from DC, Logan from Fox, and Marvel put out three movies all in one year. That's not even including smaller movies like Power Rangers. It was a lot of content for fans, but not so much that they didn't turn out in big numbers to their local movie theaters to see their favorite characters. The superhero genre is stronger than ever and 2018 promises to be another big year with the release of some high profile sequels.

Fox and Marvel Studios are coming in hot in 2018 with three releases each. Warner Bros. is hoping for quality over quantity, with Aquaman being their sole DC release of the year. Not to be forgotten, Sony will be debuting their Spider-Man spin-off universe with the release of Venom and the animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. All in all, there are 10 superhero movies releasing in 2018, but not all of them can get all the money. Here's hoping that each one of these films ends up being great quality, but as far as the box office is concerned, I think that these will be the top five superhero movies commercially.

5. X-Men: Dark Phoenix

The future of the X-Men movies may be unclear in the wake of the Disney/Fox deal and what exactly it will mean for this current incarnation of the Merry Mutants on film, but we can still focus on the present with X-Men: Dark Phoenix. The fourth film in the First Class series, Dark Phoenix has a lot to be excited about. It's a second chance for an adaptation of the X-Men's most popular storyline and it has a feeling of new blood thanks to longtime X-Men scribe and producer Simon Kinberg taking over directing duties. However, the previous movie, X-Men: Apocalypse was a low point that failed to crack even the top 10 of highest grossing movies in 2016. While that may have been caused by bad word of mouth, it could potentially be a sign that this franchise doesn't have as much juice left in it as people thought. Still, we think this can earn enough to reach the five spot.
