Top 10 Most Overrated Superhero Movies

These superhero movies get way too much attention in my opinion, so I`m counting down the most overrated of them all.

The Top Ten

1 Guardians of the Galaxy

Never, never, ever, ever will I watch this movie again! I'd rather cut myself with a knife, I'd rather lick a cactus, and the strangest thing is I used to like this movie but why? watching this doesn't feel like fun, it just feels like I'm being tortured. screw the 5 year-old minded idiots who like this movie, screw the cast, screw marvel, and most of all I hope you, James Gunn, go to hell. Damn this movie, it is the worst piece of superhero bull-crap I've ever seen, this isn't like Batman and Robin or Cat woman where it's so bad it's good, oh no, this a superhero movie that is so bad it's terrible, there is no enjoy-ability in this movie and I fail to understand how people could possibly feel that. as a matter of fact, this film likely wasn't even made to entertain it's audience no it's more likely it was made for a more crooked scheme, like trying to make a profit, that would explain half-assed it was developed. that's it I'm done with this stupid movie, what else to say about can I ...more

Not really a worthy number one it is overrated but their is a lot more overrated films then Guardians of the Galaxy.

I watched this movie and it was okay, I don't think it's as good as people said though.

How come the critics didn't notice the many flaws

2 Hellboy

I actually thought this was underrated. - RalphBob

3 The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)

Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 72%. That's overrated. - BKAllmighty

4 Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice

It's a hit miss movie honestly not really overrated not underrated not sure what to qualify it as.

I wouldn't consider it overrated as most people would give it a deserved 7/10. It just should've been better.

5 The Dark Knight Rises

Perfectly adequate, but far from great.

Actually, very underrated superhero film

Not a great film

6 Superman II

All movie sequel suck

7 The Dark Knight

Yes, I believe it's a great movie but come on! In IMDB this movie is the 4th in the top 250 best movies ever! And for sure it's super overrated

It's not the best Superhero movie it's the most overrated.

This Is My Favorite Superhero Movie Next To SpiderMan 2, Ok Sure A Lot Of People Like It, But If You Look Into This Movie, You Will See Why People Like It, No Offense, If You Don't Like It, I'm Totally Fine And Cool With That, Since I Absolutely Adore This Film, I Respect Your Opinion - VideoGamefan5

The greatest superhero movie of all-time is overrated? Not sure about that. It was the first movie I ever saw in theatres more than twice. - BKAllmighty

It has way too much attention given to it. It's not the best super hero movie it's the most overrated and annoying Superhero movie.

8 Thor: Ragnarok

More like BORE Ragnarok am I right?

where is everyone going? - MRRANDOM

Ugh, this movie disrespected characterization. Thor is so ooc, and to a lesser extent, so are Bruce and Loki. I have nothing against humor but while GOTG still had some heartfelt serious moments, Ragnarok had none. It completely lacked depth.

9 X-Men: The Last Stand

It gets a lot of hate not really overrated.

Yeah. People don't like this movie much. Not sure why it's on the list. - BKAllmighty

10 Captain America: Civil War

Feels more like an Avengers movie than a Captain America movie.

Most overrated MCU film. This is still an amazing film, but calling it "the best superhero film ever made" is taking it too far. They call it a Civil War, despite the fact it was only a 10 minute fight? LOGIC?

Should be number 1

Not as good as I'd hoped it to be, but it ain't terrible either


The Contenders

11 Batman Begins

5 years ago I would have agreed. But, after re-watching the film a few times within the past few years I have come to really enjoy it. - BKAllmighty

12 Suicide Squad


Even more overrated when this movie gets Oscar thropy.

Should be At The Top - VideoGamefan5

Terrible, just...absolutely awful.

13 Deadpool

Worst movie ever, I thought it would be a good superhero movie but it was just a sex comedy. I'm never gonna watch it again.

That was a awesome movie I mean come on! - steelers1979

This should be at number one - zxm

Eh not really their is more overrated Super Hero movies then Deadpool.

14 Black Panther Black Panther

Most overrated Marvel movie by far. It’s was alright but nowhere near as good as it is made out to be. And this is coming from a Black Panther fan.

It's only as popular as it is for having a black lead, but the plot's all over the place. Has an amazing villain, but all in all average for Marvel.

15 The Amazing Spider-Man 2

This movie is hated how is it overrated exactly?

Why Do People Say This Is Better Than SP3 - VideoGamefan5

16 Blade

People don’t even know what the heck this movie is, there are more overrated superhero movies out there. It is actually UNDERrated

17 Logan

Very boring. Barely a decent movie.

It Was An Awesome Movie, But I Had To Deal With People Going Berzerk Over It - VideoGamefan5

I cried,but that doesn’t mean that I wasn’t bored.

18 Iron Man 3

This movie sucks. - B1ueNew

More like overhated not overrated.

19 Marvel's The Avengers
20 Captain America: The Winter Soldier

I'd actually say it's underrated. It has an 89% on RT. - BKAllmighty

89% Makes it overrated if it were underrated it would've gotten a 75% or at most 70%.

21 Avengers: Infinity War Avengers: Infinity War

(cough, Thanos is one of the only things remotely memorable about it, cough) - xandermartin98

What is this doing at 24? And deadpool at number 1? This movie sucked and Deadpool is a great movie. - B1ueNew

So overrated. I actually heard someone say this was as good as star wars ESB. I mean its good but no where near one of the greatest films.

22 Avengers: Age of Ultron

To put it shortly, it sucked.

It sucks

THis movie wasn’t great, no where near the first one

23 Ant-Man

I think this movie is ok but still overrated.

24 Watchmen

Pretty underrated actually.

25 Fantastic Four (2015)

You know it has to be considered good for it to be overrated in the first place

I like this movie

Not Overrated because 0 People Like It But It Sucks Nevertheless - VideoGamefan5

It's overhated not overrated big difference.

26 Spider-Man: Homecoming

Those douche bags at Marvel abused their own creation and got everything wrong about spider-man, yeah spider-man 2 is overrated but it at least had some heart than this atrocity

Awful film, completely disregards everything about spider-man, and tom Holland sucks as peter Parker, maguire and Garfield are better web slingers

27 Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Wonka was too op, made this movie very predictable


28 Spider-Man 2

Ugh, this movie receives so much hype that it's just pissing me off, I'm not saying it's bad, but seriously, just shut up about it. if people think the dark knight is the most overrated superhero movie of all time, then they should think again, cause that title belongs to this movie

29 Superman Returns

Gets lots of hate not overrated.

30 The Incredibles

I don't understand what's so good about this movie, I can't believe it's getting a sequel next year, Ugh! - darthvadern

31 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
32 Wonder Woman Wonder Woman Wonder Woman is a fictional superhero created by William Moulton Marston and Harry G. Peter, appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character is a founding member of the Justice League, a goddess, and Ambassador-at-Large of the Amazon people. In her homeland, the island nation more.

What a pice of garbage

33 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

This is a true scam SONY dished out to justify keeping the Spider-Man Film rights

34 Man of Steel

Superman is the worst superhero ever to exist

35 X-Men: First Class

A lil' bit but X-Men 2 was far more overrated.

36 Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

Overhated different thing entirely.

37 Iron Man
38 Hulk (2003)

Overhated not overrated.

39 Captain America: The First Avenger
40 The Wolverine
41 Spider-Man (2002)
42 Doctor Strange
