Ryan Reynold’s injected the plethora of comic book movies with a dose of R-rated humour.

1. Black Panther
In the top slot is Black Panther, one of Marvel’s best movies of the year, which has been nominated for the best picture award at the Golden Globes.
Though many Marvel fans would expect Infinity War to top the search charts, T’Challa has bested Cap and the gang with his solo outing in Black Panther as the most searched for movie of 2018.
