For over fifty years filmmakers have been mining the rich history of DC Comics for inspiration, ideas, and adaptations. From Batman to John Constantine, many of DC’s best-known characters have appeared in one – or many – forms on the Silver Screen.

Opinions range far and wide on the quality of these live action portrayals, but there’s no denying their success and cultural impact over the years.
