DC and Marvel have produced some truly incredible content over the last few years. They've been creating a web of superheroes with vast origin stories, and now we're finally witnessing content in movies and live-action programmes that we never thought we'd see!

Marvel have made some fantastic movies: Iron Man, Captain America, Ant Man, all building up their central piece, The Avengers. Not to neglect their successes on the smaller screen: Daredevil, Agents of SHIELD, Agent Carter and Jessica Jones!

DC have recently been gaining some serious headway, with upcoming movies such as: Batman V Superman, Wonder Woman and Suicide Squad. But DC have really been earning a name for themselves with live-action television shows: Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and the upcoming Legends of Tomorrow.

We're truly living in a golden age of Superheroes, so now is the time to show off the best fight scenes from comic book movies so far!

Top 8 Comic Book Movie Fight Scenes!

Which is your favourite?

1. Nightcrawler assaults the White House in X-2.

A hell of an iconic scene in which we see Nightcrawler take on the secret service in the Whitehouse itself.

This dark scene in which The Incredible Nightcrawler launches into the fray like a demon was by far the best sequence in X-2.

2. Quicksilver shows off in X-men: Days of Future Past.

Who can forget the token appearance by Quicksilver in X-men: Days of Future Past? Despite the fact that his presence in the narrative seemed like a bit of a chance for Marvel to say: "Yes, we still own Quicksilver," he was still a fantastic addition!

After the brilliantly constructed sequence I was actually rather disappointed he didn't play a role in the rest of the movie. We definitely need to see Quicksilver on screen again.

3. Comedian fights Ozymandias in Watchmen.

A much darker scene than others I've included: it may not be the most visually stimulating, but it's a technical masterpiece in a highly underrated movie. The music is a sharp contrast to the brutal fight taking place on screen and the brawl is simple yet choreographed to perfection.

4. Hit Girl causes mayhem in Kick Ass.

How could I not include Hit Girl's brutal hallway scene from Kick Ass? The 2010 movie is a few years out of date now, but this scene is still wonderfully unique in it's execution.

A young girl butchering a bunch of mobsters, you couldn't make it up! Well you could and they did, but an awesome scene, regardless!

5. Captain America fights Winter Soldier in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

The fight scene we were all awaiting in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The showdown between Bucky Barnes and Steve Rodgers is awesome!

It'll be great to see Bucky Barnes back by Captain America's side in Captain America: Civil War; I bet their next fight scene together will top this one!

6. Batman vs Bane in The Dark Knight Rises.

An absolutely essential choice. It might not be the most iconic fight Batman has ever been in, but it's stylistically brilliant. Also, you have to admit that this scene hit us all fight in the feels!

7. Superman vs Zod in Man of Steel.

Surely no scene in any modern Superman movie shows the evolution of Superman more than his final battle with Zod.

Where once he was an all-American hero who rescued kittens from trees, here we see him battling a Kryptonian in a fight to the death.

8. The Avengers battle the Chitauri in The Avengers.

I had to include the final fight scene from The Avengers. The culmination of years of Marvel movies into one huge brawl; the battle was the first of it's kind in modern cinema and it was simply exemplary.
