List of films based on English-language comics

This is a list of films based on English-language comics. It includes films that are adaptations of English-language comics, and those films whose characters originated in comic books (e.g. "Batman" is not an adaptation of one particular comic book, but the character first appeared in comic books, not in another medium).
