Top 10 Most Surprising/Shocking Things That Certain Superhero Movies Have Done

The Top Ten

1 Managed to Be Worse Than the Original Made-For-TV Fantastic Four Movie from 1994, 21 Years Later - Fant-4-stic (Fantastic Four 2015)
2 Had Arguably an Even Better Joker Incarnation Than the Animated Series One, and Also Made Him Technically Win the Film's Main Conflict While He Was at It, An Entire Decade Before Infinity War - The Dark Knight
3 Was a Sony-Produced Spider-Man Movie that Completely Nailed the Original Comic Series' Personality and Aesthetic Hard Enough to Make Even the First Two Sam Raimi Films Look Like a Complete and Utter Joke in that Regard - Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
4 Thought that It Was a Good Idea to Mix the Backstory of the Animated Series Mr. Freeze with the Personality of the Adam West Mr. Freeze and the Voice of Arnold Schwarzengger - Batman & Robin
5 Was a Super-Heroine Movie (A DC Comics One, No Less) That, While Generically Pro-Feminist and Far from Great, Didn't Completely Suck - Wonder Woman 2017

I’m by no means a feminist, but I actually kind of liked this. Minus the first twenty minutes, anyways.

6 Expected People to Unironically Take Its Infamous Character-Disintegration Twist Ending Seriously and Wasn't Wrong - Avengers: Infinity War
7 Featured a Black Main Character in a Way that Was Somewhat Politically Correct and Not Just a Blatant Stereotype Like What Was Previously Seen in Blade and Steel - Black Panther 2018
8 Managed to Be Even More Insufferable of a Film Than Batman & Robin Due to Only Having One Type of Pun in It (Go On, Guess Which Type) - Catwoman
9 Didn't Completely Butcher Thanos as a Character After What the Previous Film Did to Ultron - Avengers: Infinity War

In fact, he was actually improved by being given stronger motivations - xandermartin98

10 Got Nominated for Best Picture - Black Panther
