Top Ten Worst Marvel Cinematic Universe (Sony, Fox, Universal, Disney, Etc.) Designs for Characters, Actors & Actresses

PrinceZarbon
There are many ways that Marvel movies have ruined pre-existing character concept designs and their initial color palettes and signature styles. Which are the worst decisions made in all renditions of the Marvel cinematic universe? Which character designs have completely had a major alteration that no longer are anything like the original characters and merely share the name but none of the likeness?

The Top Ten

1 Domino (Zazie Beetz) Domino (Zazie Beetz)

They ruined her original character design which was far superior than another misty knight lookalike with an afro - these traits are what make these characters who they are - they could have had any actress play the role (even zazie beetz) but should have maintained her original pale design with the hairstyle and trademark clothes like they did with Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy. This Deadpool movie rendition is the single dumbest decision made by any Marvel movie so far and Domino happens to be my favorite female from the comics for her design and concept art - now forever ruined in the marvel cinematic universe. - PrinceZarbon

They did ruin the characters look.

2 Rhino (Paul Giamatti) Rhino (Paul Giamatti)

The rhino from Spider-Man was turned into a guy in a mech suit? What is this insanity? Not only is his signature grey rhino battle armor suit completely gone, he's just a guy in a mech bot? - PrinceZarbon

Not all Marvel movies are MCU - MrCoolC

Which is why there's a parenthesis next to that saying Sony, fox, universal, etc to include the remainder. - PrinceZarbon

3 Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan) Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan)

The absolute worst rendition of iconic and legendary spider-man arch-villain green goblin. This is the Harry Osborn version and we never see Norman Osborn become the green goblin but instead this childish emo kid becomes a monstrous incarnation with a skin problem who resembles an idiotic orc or troll as opposed to the mask-wearing fiendish green and purple getup we all love. This is not only a perfect and prime example of how to kill a beloved marvel universe character - it also serves to prove just how much better the comics have portrayed his fantastic sinistic cackling behavior coupled with his menacing costume - a direct polar opposite of what the movie rendition of this character has shown, which is nothing short of a failed attempt to try something new. - PrinceZarbon

The Original Green Goblin was so cool and fantastic in Spider-man(2002).But this is the worst GOBLIN to be ever created.HE SHOULD BE BANNED!

Whatever happened to the green goblin that wasn’t super strong, but was smart and clever? That’s what made him scary!

4 Electro (Jamie Foxx) Electro (Jamie Foxx)

Another exampe of how to ruin a spider-man villain; The outfit is completely gone; they rendered him a shiny blue freak accident in the movie and it's not a bad design in its own right but it is NOT electro from the comics with his striking green and yellow outfit and his signature shocking thunderous mask around his face. Not only is the character's persona and background story completely different - he is no longer Maxwell Dillon as we know him in the comics but rather a base employee at corporate who is mistreated and rendered vengeful. - PrinceZarbon

5 Vulture (Michael Keaton) Vulture (Michael Keaton)

Prime way to destroy one of spider-man's major foes. Gone is the amazing vulture outfit - now replaced with a lesser and less appealing modern touch that lacks the true nature of the character - he doesn't even sport the green color theme and lacks the bald head with feathered neck lining - a titular trademark for his design - now replaced by a horribly stupid helmet that could fit into a kamen rider or beetleborgs universe design. - PrinceZarbon

Just because it's not comic-accurate does not make it bad. Some of these are actually great. - Tia-Harribel

Actually, that is the title of the list based on design so it would defeat the purpose of not to list them based on being comic accurate as design is what plays a major role. - PrinceZarbon

6 Caliban (Stephen Merchant / Tómas Lemarquis) Caliban (Stephen Merchant / Tómas Lemarquis)

Completely altered to a regular looking guy with Alopecia universalis as opposed to being a pale-grey gargoyle-looking Mutant with distinguishing features and a unique headsculpt with major impression around his eye ridges and fiercely sharp and sleek facial design. This is nothing like the Caliban from the comics but rather- a movie rendition that shares the name and name alone. - PrinceZarbon

7 Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand)

They ruined this character's original design - she is missing the pale white skin and hairstyle as well as her original clothing selection being totally off. Another character appearing in a Deadpool movie completely wasted. - PrinceZarbon

8 Ajax (Ed Skrein) Ajax (Ed Skrein)

He's a guy in the movie without any unique design - in the comics, he has a metallic armored suit equipped with shoulder boards and a round shiny helmet with laser eyes to go along with his sleek metallic heavy-weapons. This is not the case for the movie version. Here he is just a guy. - PrinceZarbon

9 Pyro (Aaron Stanford) Pyro (Aaron Stanford)

The menacing and fiery Pyro turned to a mere student without any unique outfit - gone is his signature yellow and red outfit with gauntlets and special insulated built-in flamethrower and obviously no more mask and fierce hairstyle. Another comic character ruined by a modern movie rendition, given a cigarette lighter to control flame over his Amazing outfit and design. - PrinceZarbon

10 Helmut Zemo (Daniel Brühl ) Helmut Zemo (Daniel Brühl )

What is the character without his signature full-body suit and pink striped mask? Just another guy. Pretty much like having Red Hood without his red hood or Black Mask without his black mask or Sin-Eater without his green mask, or Blood Rose without his purple mask, etc. - PrinceZarbon

The Contenders

11 Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds)

They did the 2016 version right and they ruined the Xmen origins wolverine one - BlazingParasol

And yet they ruined so many other characters in the 2016 and 2018 version. - PrinceZarbon

12 Bullseye (Colin Farrell) Bullseye (Colin Farrell)
13 Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) Wanda Maximoff, also known as the Scarlet Witch, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. She is portrayed by Elizabeth Olsen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
