Top 10 Saddest Superhero Movies

Spoiler alert for all the tear breaking superhero movies.

The Top Ten

1 Logan

I really loved this movie. He gives his life to save the girl who is basically his daughter one last time.

Saddest ever

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.

One of the most depressing films ever

2 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

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

RIP SONY WALKMAN (and Yondu of coarse he Is my favourite character)

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

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 - 201002579

3 Big Hero 6

Just each scene was emotional with the death of Tadashi and Baymax temporarily - 201002579

4 The Dark Knight Rises

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

Batman may be dead but Bruce Wayne is still alive - 201002579

The ending to the greatest trilogy of all time!

5 Avengers: Infinity War Avengers: Infinity War

I almost cried.

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.

Saddest of the list

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

We are Groot. - 201002579

Just seeing mutant friends die one by one was emotional. - 201002579

8 Captain America: Civil War

Not sad at all

Seeing each Hero fight each other and betraying each other really gives you the feels. - 201002579

The death of Rachel was pretty emotional as that was one of Bruce Wayne's only friends. - 201002579

The Contenders

11 The Incredibles

Very emotional family story - 201002579

12 Hulk (2003)
13 The Avengers: Age of Ultron

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" - wren6

14 Wonder Woman

A sad and dark superhero movie but great overall.

Cried when Steve died

Sad and really good.

15 The Amazing Spider-Man 2

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

16 Batman Returns
17 Spider-Man 3
18 Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
19 V for Vendetta

Poor poor v...

20 Batman and Robin

Sad that this movie was ever made

21 The Emoji Movie

Is this a joke it’s not even a superhero movie it’s not sad and it’s TERRIBLE

22 Captain America: The Winter Soldier

This is a dark, gritty, emotional story! Deserves the top ten!

23 Deadpool 2

I don't want to give any spoilers but I can't listen to Take on Me the same way anymore. Kiss me like ya miss me, Red

Deadpool 2 was sad as hell

24 Batman Begins

This is an emotional but awesome movie

25 Man of Steel
26 Saban's Power Rangers
27 Thor Thor Thor Odinson is a fictional superhero appearing in the American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character, based on the Norse mythological deity of the same name, is the Asgardian god of thunder and possesses the enchanted hammer Mjolnir, which grants him the ability of flight and weather more.
28 Spider Man 2
29 The Crow

It was very edgy, somber, tragic and sad all in one.

30 Superman Returns

I see no reason why people slam the storyline. It was a very effective one given the fact that the film depicts a man of steel who has to find his place and his purpose in a world that seems to have no need for him.
