Top 10 Saddest Superhero Movies

Spoiler alert for all the tear breaking superhero movies.
The Top Ten
1 Logan Logan Product Image

I still haven't seen the movie, but my mom watched it without me while I was at dance. For some reason she thought she had to walk me through the whole thing because I wasn't there. Spoilers made me cry. Wow.

the most proper send-off for Hugh Jackman's Wolverine. he has been wolverine since I was a child and seeing him go as an adult was the most gutting feeling ever. amazing performance.

This movie made me really depressed, especially during the ending. There were so many of my favorite characters (who I was so use to watching in movies) who passes away. This movie is PERFECT for the conclusion to Hugh Jackman's Wolverine.

This is one of the saddest deaths I have ever scene. This entire movie was an emotional story and it had sad but perfect ending. It was actually enough to make me cry.

Yondu's death was stupid. He beats the deal out of Peter in the first movie, and then Peter says that Hindu was like the father he never had. What?

I have not watched this movie once when the ending didn't make me teary eyed. And I've watched it about 40 times.

Not only did Ego kill his mom but he betrayed Peter and smashed his Walkman. And also "He may be your father but he ain't your daddy" Yondus death was very emotional

This movie made my little brother cry (and he didn't cry on titanic)

4 Avengers: Endgame Avengers: Endgame Product Image

The thought of a 5 year old Morgan not being able to say a proper good-bye to Tony Stark (and other things, like there will be no Tony Stark in MCU, etc.) shook me to the core.

This should easily climb to the top! Seeing Iron man give his life for the world. And then seeing his pre recorded message he made before his death. Also seeing Black Widow give her life for the Soul stone. And finally seeing Captain America finallt get to live the life he wanted with his love Peggy Carter! Couldn't be sadder than that!

I saw the first Iron Man movie in the theatres when I was six. Seeing him go in Endgame was not easy. Seeing Black Widow go was not easy. And seeing Steve retire was not easy. This movie is the reason why Marvel will never be the same ever again.

Unfortunately, we had to see our favorite characters die. I remember the first iron man movie coming out when I was four years old. I was raised with this character. But, all things must come to an end.

5 Avengers: Infinity War Avengers: Infinity War Product Image

Spider-Man is one of the only superhero's I actually like, and watching him plead for his life and apologize to Tony was just heartbreaking. He was a good kid.

"And if you died? I feel like that's on me." - Tony Stark from Spiderman: Homecoming. And then when peter faded away.

The greatest of all plot twists (also, one of the most shocking and saddest).

The deaths of spiderman and gamora were difficult to bear. Really sad.

6 The Dark Knight Rises The Dark Knight Rises Product Image

The ending made me cry and happy at once when I heard by the engineers that the plane has autopilot.

The ending to the greatest trilogy of all time!

7 Guardians of the Galaxy Guardians of the Galaxy Product Image
8 X-Men: Days of Future Past X-Men: Days of Future Past Product Image

Just seeing mutant friends die one by one was emotional.

9 Captain America: Civil War Captain America: Civil War Product Image

Tony fighting with Steve, who's trying to save Bucky, who killed Tony's parents; whom he didn't even get to say a proper good-bye to!

Seeing each Hero fight each other and betraying each other really gives you the feels.

Not sad at all

10 The Dark Knight The Dark Knight Product Image

The true hero of Gotham city, goes into hiding, so that the city streets get freed of crime; that too, based on a lie.

The death of Rachel was pretty emotional as that was one of Bruce Wayne's only friends.

The Contenders
11 Watchmen Watchmen Product Image

WHat are you talking about?! Rorschach's death is still tragic and will always be!

I'm not trapped in here with you! You're trapped in here with me!

Why'd did rorschach have to die! (spoilers alert)

Face it! You only watched it for rorschach

12 The Incredibles The Incredibles Product Image

This is an example of a superhero movie story done right. The writing for this and the second Incredibles movie was perfect for every type of superhero fan.

13 The Avengers: Age of Ultron The Avengers: Age of Ultron Product Image

I was looking through the list and about to vote logan and then I saw this. Quicksilvers death was super sad, and the moment he died it made scarlet witch go crazy. "I didn't see that coming"

14 The Amazing Spider-Man 2 The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Product Image

Why must every Spiderman film end with an important or loved character dying?

I cried so much

15 Wonder Woman Wonder Woman Product Image

This movie made me cry. Steve's last words to Diana were so emotional. "I just wish we had a little more time. I love you." It's even sadder that she's pretty much immortal so there's no seeing him in the afterlife either. (I know they have the afterlife in the Arrowverse but do they have an afterlife in this universe?)

Emptiest feeling ever when they were celebrating the end of the war without Steve.

A sad and dark superhero movie but great overall.

Cried when Steve died

24 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Product Image

"Miles...the hardest thing about this job is...you can't always save everyone." A quote like that is one of the many depressing lines in this gosh-darn fantastic movie.
