Top 10 Worst Superhero Movies

The Top Ten
1 Batman & Robin

This movie basically ruined Alicia Silverstone's career, which is a sad shame after she just had her breakthrough with Clueless.

You know what's interesting? We can blame both of the Schumacher movies on the box office failure of Batman Returns. If Batman Returns was a box office hit and people responded positively to it, the studio would never have kicked Tim Burton off the franchise and Schumacher would never have been brought on board. So yeah, the failure of Batman Returns is the main cause of this disaster.

2 Catwoman

How to make a terrible superhero movie: Take a step forward by making a female-led superhero movie, then take eight steps back by having her battle against moisturizer. I mean, this movie doesn't even honor its source material. Catwoman's name isn't even Selina Kyle! I hope they someday make a good Catwoman movie that actually has to do with its source material.

This movie is just unbelievably terrible. I can't even explain it. All you have to do is watch it. It has to be seen to be believed. Not only is it the worst superhero movie I have ever seen, but it is the fifth worst movie I have ever seen.

3 Fantastic Four (2015)

What a bad movie. It has enough problems to fill up a quarter of the earth. Firstly, it should be renamed What Happened Before the Fantastic Four Became the Fantastic Four because that's what most of the film is about. Either make it longer or make the get ready the machine part shorter.

Oh, and after they get hit by the meteors and gain their powers, they become totally cool with it one scene later? Why? This film could have been at least decent judging by the trailers, but it was wasted. Well, at least they tried. But other than that, this movie was bad.

4 Superman IV: The Quest for Peace

What a horrible movie. I loved the first two Superman movies, but then the third one came out, and I said, "Please don't tell me you're going this route." And then this steaming pile of crap came out. It's so cheap that they use the same shot of Superman flying for every flying scene. Also, Nuclear Man? Really? What kind of dumb villain is that?

Remember when you were watching your favorite Superman movie and you heard about this, watched it, and were disgusted at the awful quality? Yeah, me too.

It's really bad if the first few seconds of the movie gave me nasty headaches. And it didn't stop until the end credits began rolling.

5 Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice

Way too overhyped and tries too hard to be a good movie. At least most of the other movies high up on this list knew they were bad movies in the first place and don't try to hide that fact. Add in the fact that this was to be a starting point for the DCU, it created a complete disaster for subsequent films to try and fix.

This is the most disappointing DC movie I have ever seen. There are no reasons given as to why Batman and Superman are fighting, and the reason for why they stop fighting is nonsense. Plus, Wonder Woman has no reason to even be in the movie at all.

6 Elektra

This movie is terrible. It should be number one, but they have Fantastic Four, which is a terrific movie, up there. It is just stupid.

It's not that bad, definitely better than Fantastic Four (2015).

Hey look! The spinoff nobody asked for!

7 Green Lantern
8 Hulk

I HATE THIS MOVIE! First off, the CGI is HORRIBLE. Hulk looks more confused than angry. Second, why does Hulk sound like someone smacking their food and making noises? Third, HULK BARELY DOES ANYTHING! Seriously, all he does is either stand there or destroy stuff for no reason. Fourth, what is up with the acting?

Fifth, why does Hulk look like Shrek? Sixth, the music is ANNOYING. Seventh, it barely has a villain. And OBVIOUSLY, they know nothing about the Hulk comics because if they did, they would know that the Absorbing Man is NOT Bruce's father. They would know it's Brian Banner, and they stated that Hulk was created by Bruce's father? This movie is all kinds of DUMB!

9 Howard the Duck

It was the wrong time to make this movie, considering it relies heavily on special effects. Now, with the success of all their other movies, if done right, I think Marvel could make a good movie out of this character, or at least make him a side character. His design in GOTG was great. And even if he only said three lines, they sounded like something Iron Man would say.

But if they're gonna make a movie about him, make it about him fighting against his villain, not just living a normal life in the human world. We don't wanna rehash this crappy movie again. Seriously, the '80s was a crappy time for movies based on cartoons (e.g., Masters of the Universe) and for comic book movies (e.g., this movie).

10 Suicide Squad

Yep, I knew I would find this movie in here. The "plot" (hahaa, I called it a plot) was messy and totally forced. Most of the characters were underdeveloped. The villain was... wait... there was a villain in this? I literally forgot about that character (the villain is forgettable for those who didn't get it), and not to mention that the music is awful.

The only good things about this waste of a movie are Margot Robbie and Will Smith. They are the highlights of the film and are probably the most developed characters in the whole movie (maybe El Diablo too).

Now I know what you're thinking: "What about Jared Leto's Joker?" Well, honestly, I actually appreciate that Jared Leto tried to bring something to this character in THIS movie. I don't think he's that bad at all. I just wish we could've gotten more out of him. He is clearly not the best Joker (played by Mark Hamill), but he is okay.

The Contenders
11 Daredevil

I personally don't hate this movie at all but can understand why some do. The clich├ęd origin story, the corniness of some parts (especially some of the 'romantic' dialogue), and how underwritten it all feels can turn some people off. That being said, it is at least entertaining enough to make up for its flaws (something films like Catwoman can't boast) while the good parts (very stylish, good action scenes, fine acting) make this worth a watch.

12 Steel

This is an example of DC having a character who's a major ripoff of a Marvel character. Seriously, this guy ripped off Iron Man in every way, and he even rips off Robocop. It's so weird how the majority of the worst comic book movies ever are DC movies: Catwoman, Batman and Robin, Superman Returns, Batman Forever, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Batman, Batman Begins, Batman Returns, and Steel.

Marvel had a few bad ones, but there were only four of them: Elektra, Daredevil, Howard the Duck, and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. That's all. I'm so sick of the way they make black people talk. Newsflash, movie studios: just because someone is black doesn't mean they talk like rappers.

Plus, it takes like 30 minutes before he becomes the superhero. Also, this is the most pathetic superhero on the face of the earth. He can't run after a car, he gets beat up multiple times in the movie, he has a hard time climbing a ladder, he has no idea how to use his weapons, and he doesn't know how to fight. Worst superhero ever.

13 Captain America (1990)

I didn't know that the reboot was a reboot. This movie was so bad (yet it made a reference).

Let's just forget this film exists, okay?

Batman and Robin was bad, but it was bad in a fun way. This is just disappointingly bad.

14 Ghost Rider (2007)

The only thing that prevents the Ghost Rider films from entering my worst comic book movie list is Nicolas Cage's overacting, which is always fun to watch.

What person looked at Johnny Blaze and thought, "Nicolas Cage is the man for this role"?

15 The Amazing Spider-Man 2

I think this movie was alright, but the only thing I hated about it was Electro's death. He had potential to be a reformed villain, yet the writers just killed him off the storyboard. He just wanted to be respected. And his death wasn't even done in a good way. He just died, a few seconds of him laying on the ground, and that was it. I'm disappointed.

This was noticeably just made for money and sequels. They marketed Rhino, even though he's in this movie for around five minutes. They tried to rush the Green Goblin and had awful CGI for Electro. Slam that together with no real motives at all and bad directing, and you'll get this crazy movie.

16 X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Part of it is really good. But halfway through, it becomes weird and overall bad (not to mention that they butchered Deadpool).

A horrible movie that butchered two of the greatest X-Men characters ever, Deadpool and Gambit.

17 Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

It would have at least been an okay movie if it wasn't for that annoying editing. Like, who thought that was a good idea? The most used one is when, for no reason, the film speeds up for two seconds, but the worst was when he gets shot by a rocket and that causes him to float in the air and spin around. What were they thinking?

And Ghost Rider is barely in this movie. In the first movie, he was in it a lot, but in this movie, he gets his powers taken away. Why? We want to see Ghost Rider. This is one of the worst comic book movies of all time.

18 Batman Forever

It's not that bad. It's just more comical. This movie is the reason I love superheroes so much. Let me tell you the cycle:

I love Jim Carrey because he's my favorite comedian >. Jim Carrey is the Riddler >. The Riddler became my favorite Batman villain >. I got Batman: Arkham City because it has the Riddler in it >. I read Riddler comics >. Then I gave Batman: The Animated Series a shot >. I love Batman and his rogues gallery >. Batman was in Justice League: The Animated Series >. I watched it and now love DC superheroes >. I watched the New 52 movies >. Now I am a major fan of superhero movies.

19 Fantastic Four

Chris Evans is horrible at playing the Human Torch.

20 Supergirl

Supergirl looks like Superman with photoshopped hair and boobs. We're in for a good movie.

Why isn't this higher? There's nothing good about it.

21 Man of Steel

Ok, so Superman is a "superhero." If so, why did a bomb go off and kill millions of people? Isn't Superman supposed to save the day? Really, people? It was a setup for Batman V Superman, but seriously, he's supposed to save the world!

Bad screenplay, bad actors (including Henry Cavill and Amy Adams), poor OST, no soul. I prefer Superman Returns to this thing. They don't know how to show Superman in the cinema. I mean, Superman Lives not yet yes for Man of Steel. I think, what is the difference between Man of Steel and Superman Lives? Nothing. The screenplays for both movies destroy the history of Superman. I think so.

22 Superman Returns

Really? This movie is kind of boring but is not a bad movie. It had like 78% or something on Rotten Tomatoes, for crying out loud. It does not deserve to be placed with these other truly bad movies in the top 10.

No one could replace Christopher Reeve. The story was okay, but I just wish it came when the real Superman was still around.

23 Dark Phoenix

Absolute worst entry in the entire X-Men franchise.

I can't believe they had the audacity to drag poor Jessica Chastain into this appalling trainwreck of a movie.

24 Spider-Man 3

I was like 7 when this came out. So when Peter went emo and started dancing down the street and all that weird stuff, I thought it was pretty funny. But now I watch it, and I'm like, how much did they pay him to do this? Not enough.

Also, I did not understand Sandman's weakness - water, right? Well, near the end of the movie, the guy has tears in his eyes! Oh, let's not forget Harry's glider can be controlled by him, right? Because he called it back to him when he and Peter had their fight in the city. So when Venom had the glider and was about to kill Peter, why did Harry jump in front of him? He could have just called it back to him!

Other than that, the movie was okay. But compared to the new ones with Andrew Garfield, this is way better. Seriously, how does he put that mask on with that full head of hair?

25 Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer

I just hate what they did to Galactus. Seriously, that wasn't Galactus. It was a storm cloud.
