Joker (2019)

Joaquin Phoenix takes a turn playing Batman’s nemesis from the long-running DC series, and what a performance, earning him a justly-deserved Academy Award for Best Actor. His portrayal of the origins of The Joker is searingly poignant, from the physicality of his body shape as he applies a garish clown smile with make-up, despite his manic laughter only ever sounding hollow, through to his eventual lapse into a cold-blooded vigilante. His futile attempts to counter isolation, bullying, and eventual mental breakdown, while playing up to his celebrity status, will be hugely engaging for your first date.

The Suicide Squad (2021)

Based on the memorable DC strip, The Suicide Squad brings back the supervillain from the original Suicide Squad released in 2016 along with some new faces. With Margot Robbie as the gum-chewing, baseball-wielding Harley Quinn, it features the same ragtag band of degenerates who are harnessed by the government for a series of deadly missions. There’s always something thrilling about rooting for nutty but entertaining anti-heroes rather than the usual clearly-defined leading characters, and the story unfolds with verve.

Wonder Woman (2017)

The titular character first appeared in a DC strip as far back as 1941, when the USA had yet to enter World War 2, but the earlier 1914-18 world conflict forms the backdrop to this eye-catching adventure. Here, Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), in her guise as the Amazon princess Diana, attempts to prevent World War 1 from breaking out, after an American spy (Chris Pine) crash lands on her home island and informs about the imminent catastrophe. As the narrative races along, we discover a fiendish plot to scupper the Armistice negotiations by the German general Ludendorff (Danny Huston), who intends to unleash deadly gas to win the war.

Green Lantern (2011)

Starring Ryan Reynolds as the green-costumed superhero, the Green Lantern is a member of an elite group, recruited from across the universe, who draw power from magic rings. Also starring Blake Lively as his love interest (both off-screen and in real life!) and Peter Sarsgaard as a scientist, Hector Hammond, who develops extraordinary powers after exposure to yellow fear energy, this is one of the best DC-based movies for you to enjoy on your date night. Full of thrilling action set-pieces, as well the potent chemistry between the leads, there is never a dull moment as the Green Lantern struggles to counter Hammond’s growing malevolent superpowers.

The Dark Knight (2008)

Batman is among the most instantly recognizable DC characters of all, appearing in numerous versions of tales of Gotham City. Here, a gang of criminals, spearheaded by The Joker (played by the late, great Heath Ledger), rob a bank, only The Joker managing to escape with the loot. On his trail is the caped crusader (Christian Bale), who has formed an alliance with the District Attorney, Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart) and police lieutenant James Gordon (Gary Oldman) – one of the city’s few reliable and honest cops. It’s a Batman film, so expect a white-knuckle ride to make your first date go with a bang!
