Best Netflix Instant to Watch Streaming Comic Movies
And the Winner of the Comic Book Superhero Movie Netflix International Showdown, with 16 Marvel and DC Comics films total, is (drumroll please)… Netflix Brazil!
How To Watch All 7 Live Action Batman Movies on Netflix
Batman (1989) – Netflix USA may actually be the worst locale if you are interested in comic book based movies. However, if you want to watch all 7 live action Batman movies, then Netflix USA is integral as you will have to start here for the first Michael Keaton Batman.
Batman Returns (1992), Batman Forever (1995), & Batman and Robin (1997) – Netflix Australia makes this one easy for you (why they don’t have the very first in the series is inexplicable to us). Catch all three on Netflix down under.
Batman Begins (2005), The Dark Knight (2008), & The Dark Knight Rises (2012) – Netflix France makes streaming the Nolan trilogy easy for you by offering all three in one locale. Spend the last 7 or so hours in one spot.
A Streaming Guide Through the Marvel Cinematic Universe on Netflix
If you piece together the Marvel films available across various global Netflix streaming catalogs, then it is possible to stream every title from the Marvel Cinematic Universe released in theaters before 2014.
Iron Man (2008) – Start your streaming with Iron Man, the Marvel movie and character that set the stage for all future Avengers, in Netflix Brazil.
The Incredible Hulk (2008) – Even though Mark Ruffalo took over the role of Hulk from Ed Norton for The Avengers, this 2008 version is still included in the official list of Marvel Cinematic Universe films. It may not be available on any of the countries listed above, but you can find it in Argentina, Mexico, Columbia, New Zealand, Austria, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, and Japan.
Iron Man 2 (2010) – Stick with Netflix Brazil for access to the first Iron Man sequel.
Thor (2011) – Catch the first Thor movie release in Netflix Brazil as well, or you can catch both Thor movies in Denmark.
Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) – At this point you might as well grab a Caipirinha and sit back, because Brazil is also the place to stream the first Captain America Marvel movie release (same with the next one, but that comes later).
Marvel’s The Avengers (2012) – We promise to break up the monotony soon, but yeah, stick with Brazil here.
Thor: The Dark World (2013) – Now the time has come to hop across the pond to Netflix Denmark in order to catch this Thor sequel.
Iron Man 3 (2013) – This one is all over Europe. Whether you prefer France, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, or Austria is entirely your call.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) – Stick with Netflix Denmark in order to catch this Captain America sequel, because you can directly from there to…
Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) – One more time in Denmark for this incredibly popular Chris Pratt-headed Marvel spinoff.
Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) – Finish your streaming marathon in Netflix Canada with this, likely the last of Joss Whedon’s contributions to the Marvel universe. But the Netherlands or Australia work just as well.
