The Correct Order To Watch The Man Of Steel Movies

When Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” burst into theaters on June 14, 2013, Warner Bros and DC were hoping to use Christopher Nolan’s recently completed Batman trilogy as a springboard to a weightier, morally complex version of the Kryptonian refugee. The film fiercely divided critics and fans alike, many of whom felt Snyder’s dark, largely humorless sensibility clashed with the character’s hopeful, humanistic heroics. In response to the movie’s disappointing global box office ($670 million, falling well short of Nolan’s billion-dollar-grossing Batman sequels), Snyder doubled down on the bleakness by flashing the Bat-signal and abandoning a standalone “Man of Steel” follow-up.

There are basically four Superman installments in Syder’s now-discontinued DCEU run — two of which are wildly different versions of the same movie. Beyond these films, there are two cameo appearances. If you’re a completist, they should be watched in this order:

“Man of Steel” (2013)

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Ultimate Edition” (2016)

“Zack Snyder’s Justice League” (2021)

“The Flash” (2023)

“Justice League” (2017)

“Black Adam” (2022)

Millions of reviews/think-pieces/explainers have been written about the behind-the-scenes turmoil of “Justice League.” Rather than rehash that whole sordid tale, I’ll recommend that you prioritize Snyder’s vision over Joss Whedon’s last-second salvage job. Snyder’s “Justice League” features some of his most visually audacious set pieces; alas, the relentlessly dour tone also hammers home why he was all wrong for Superman.
