List RulesVote up the best sequels from 2018.

From Ant-Man and the Wasp to Super Troopers 2, some of 2018's best movies were sequels. Throughout Hollywood's history, movie sequels have really been hit and miss. While plenty of sequels are box office hits and highly anticipated by fans, others end up falling flat and probably shouldn't have been made in the first place. In other words, there have been some seriously disappointing sequels in years passed. Yet, in this time when additional installments, prequels, and remakes comprise many of the films in theaters, the sequel movies of 2018 rarely disappointed. So, which were the best sequel movies this year?

As one of the most anticipated films of 2018, Avengers: Infinity War easily makes the list of 2018 sequel movies—if not tops it. Of course, we can't forget the second installments of superhero flicks like Incredibles 2 and the hilarious Deadpool 2, both of which were true gems. In short, there were plenty of great movie sequels this year, and some stand as the 2018's top films—but which were your favorites?

Check out the complete list of sequel movies from 2018 below and vote up the ones you think are best.
