Top 10: Superhero Movie Duels

This video from WatchMojo is a few years old, so it can be forgiven some of the glaring omissions in their list and the weird inclusion of things like the Thomas Jane Punisher film or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990 style).  Obviously things like Civil War, Man of Steel and Thor: Ragnarok should now be on this list.  I’m a little baffled as to even from the Reeve years, how a Superman III entry made this list.  To be honest, though I normally hail WatchMojo’s lists, this one is kind of a puzzle to me, and I would probably only include three or four of their picks on my list.  The film, again, that definitely is missing is Captain America: Civil War in which you could pick the brawl at the airport or the final fight between Cap and Iron Man or BOTH.  What’s missing from here for you?  Ok, what’s MOST OBVIOUSLY missing here for you.
