Worst Superhero Movies

The Top Ten

1 Batman & Robin

You know what's interesting? We can blame both of the Schumacher movies on the box office failure of Batman Returns, if Batman Returns was a box office hit and people responded positively to it, the studio would never have kicked Tim Burton off the franchise and Schumacher would never have been brought on board, so yeah, the failure of Batman Returns is the main cause of this disaster

Batman and Robin looks weird with nipples on their suit.

George clooney amazing actor. But playing as a batman.

Now this movie was trash, period... - Girlsfetish

2 Catwoman

How to make a terrible superhero movie: Take a step forward by making a female-led superhero movie, then take eight steps back by having her do battle against MOISTURIZER. I mean, this movie doesn't even honor its source material. Catwoman's name isn't even Selina Kyle! I hope they someday make a good Catwoman movie that actually has to do with its source material.

This movie is just unbelievably terrible, I can't even explain it. All that you have to is watch it, it has to be seen to believe. Not only is it the worst superhero movie I have ever seen, but it is the 5th worst movie I have ever seen.

The second I saw Catwoman's top, I knew it would suck. She was almost as bad as Chase Meridian, A.K. A Dr. Cleavage.

With this movie I have to give Batman and Robin some credit

3 Fantastic Four (2015)

This movie was by far the worst superhero movie that I've seen. Fantastic 4 was so dark, gritty, and boring that it almost made me fall asleep watching it. There are really no good qualities of this movie and it makes the 2005 Fantastic 4 look like a masterpiece. - rapaddict97

It's hard to think of any enjoyable moments from this film. It was so bleak and boring. - BKAllmighty

What a mess! A step by step guide for how to make a movie about people with super powers boring and lame.

You know it's bad when Stan Lee didn't do a cameo

4 Superman IV: The Quest for Peace

What a horrible movie, I loved the first 2 superman movies, but then the 3rd one came out and I said "please don't tell me you're going this route" and then this steaming pile of crap came out, it's so cheap that they use the same shot of superman flying for every flying scene, also, nuclear man? Really? What kind of dumbass villain is that?

Remember when you were watching your favorite Superman movie and you heard about this, watched it and was disgusted at the awful quality? Yeah, me too. - naFrovivuS

It's really bad if the first few seconds of the movie gave me nasty headaches. And it didn't stop until the end credits began rolling

This superhero movie sucks. - Fullwalking2

5 Green Lantern

Nah this movie wasn't as bad as everyone says.

Better than Batman & Robin

I love Hal Jordan Green Lantern. This though. THIS was an ABORTION

I fell asleep during the movie - VideoGamefan5

6 Elektra

It's not that bad, definitely better than fantastic four (2015).

Gotta admit, that kiss scene was hot! - Daviddv0601

This movie is terrible it should be 1 but they have Fantastic Four which is a terrific movie up there. It is just stupid

7 Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice

This was absolutely terrible. It should be way higher up.

Very very boring

It wasn't that bad. It wasn't the greatest movie ever, but it's nowhere near as horrible as everybody says it is. I would give it a C+ grade.

I love this movie

8 Steel

This is an example of DC having a character who's a major ripoff of a marvel character, seriously this guy ripped off iron man in every way, and he even rips off robocop, it's so weird how the majority of the worst comic book movies ever are DC movies. Catwoman, Batman and Robin, Superman returns, Batman forever, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Batman, Batman Begins, Batman Returns, and Steel, Marvel had a few bad ones but there were only 4 of them. Elektra, Daredevil, Howard the Duck and Ghost Rider Spirit Of Vengeance. That's all. And I'm so sick of the way they make black people talk, newflash movie studios, just because someone is black doesn't mean they talk like rappers, plus it takes like 30 minutes before he becomes the superhero, also this is the most pathetic superhero on the face of the earth, he can't run after a car, he gets beat up multiple times in the movie, he has a hard time climbing a ladder, he has no idea how to use his weapons and he doesn't know how to ...more

I'm not defending Steel by the way, I hate it as much as everybody else does. - HarryPotter12

The steel from the comics is not pathetic but the one from the movie is pathetic

DC has officially shown us the most pathetic superhero on the face of the earth

Then you've clearly never heard of Arm fall off boy who is a real superhero - Jordan01

9 Ghost Rider (2007)

What person looked at Johnny blaze and thought "Nicholas cage is the man for THIS role" - Jackamalio

I don't think this one was bad at all, the sequel was a lot worse and should be higher on this list

The only thing that prevents the Ghost Rider films from entering my worst comic book movie list is Nicolas Cage's overracting which is always fun to watch.

Shut up this is an awesome movie.

10 The Amazing Spider-Man 2

I think this movie was alright, but the only thing I hated about it was Electro's death. He had POTENTIAL to be a reformed villain, yet the writers just killed him off the storyboard. He just wanted to be respected. And his death wasn't even done in a good way. He just died, a few seconds of him laying on the ground and that was it. I'm disappointed. - MillieTrina_Prower

This was noticeably just made for money and sequels, they marketed Rhino, even though he's in this movie around five minutes, tried to rush the Green Goblin and had God awful CGI to Electronic, Slams that together with no real motives at all and bad directing and you'll get this piece of crazy movie.

I don't know anyone who wasn't totally disappointed with this film. One of my best friends, who thought the 2012 film was the best of the series, absolutely hated it. I know the negotiations are just in the early stages but I seriously hope Sony gives Spider-Man back to Marvel. - BKAllmighty

Also, the acting and CG were both great! - Elijah_Cook

The Contenders

11 Suicide Squad

If you think that critics are giving the movie bad reviews because they're Marvel fanboys, then you have no understanding of the word criticism. It's a bit ironic to be so sore about the critics being sore, isn't it?

No plot, worst villain, worst cast, worst music, photography, etc etc - Ale9991

Worst DC movie ever... They ruined Harley Quinn... And the joker. Not only that, choppy editing and a bad plot

Can you call this a superhero movie? but I'll just say it does, I enjoyed it the first time but I got bored overtime my friends forced me to watch this, this is worst than BVS

12 Daredevil

It's just so generic

I thought it was pretty good

I thought it was pretty good

13 Howard the Duck

It was the wrong time to make this movie, considering it relies heavily on special effect, now with the success of all their other movies, if done right, I think Marvel could make a good movie out of this character, or at least make him a side character, his design in GOTG was great. And even if he only said 3 lines they sounded like they were something iron man would say. But if they're gonna make a movie about him, make it about him fighting against his villain not just living a normal life in the human world, cause we don't wanna rehash this crappy movie again, seriously, the 80's was a crappy time for movies based on cartoons, ex. Masters of the universe, and for comic book movies, ex. This movie

There Are Uncensored Duck Boobs In The Beginning

That's Disgusting

UGGGH! This is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Marvel was in a dark time, with only one movie under their belt, spider man 1977 (which is almost as bad as this one), and this movie didn't help at all. Things in this movie aren't action-consequence, like good movies. Things just happen at random here.

Can't believe it isn't rated the worst ever. Maybe, because so few people sawit? How bad is it? I'd rather eat kale every day for the rest of my life rather than watch this movie ever again.

14 Hulk

I HATE THIS MOVIE! First off, the cgi, is HORRIBLE, hulk looks more confused than angry, 2nd off, why does hulk sound like someone smacking on their food and makng noises, 3rd, HULK BARELY DOES ANYTHING! Seriously all he does is either stand there or destroy stuff for no reason, 4th, what is up with the acting, 5th, why does hulk look like Shrek? 6th, the music is ANNOYING. 6th, barely has a villain, and OBVIOUSLY they know nothing about the hulk comics because if they did, then they would know that the obsorbng man is NOT Bruce's father, they would know it's Brian Banner, and they stated that hulk was created by Bruce's father? This movie is all types of DUMB! - GamingGoku757

Hulk? More like Sulk! (I can't believe Any lee did this)

This movie is release in wrong time Cg is not ready for it - Thirdwind

15 Fantastic Four

The 2015 one makes this one look like Citizen Kane

This movie deserves more respect even if this is not a masterpiece - Olive855

This film pretty much just tried rely on having Jessica Alba strip every 10 minutes

I have to agree. The 2015 version was waaay worse - TheLastSiren

16 Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

It would Have at least been an ok movie if it wasn't for that annoying editing, like who thought that was a good idea, the most used one is for no reason the film speeds up for 2 second, but the worst was when he gets shot by a rocket and that causes him to float in the air and spin around, what were they thinking? And ghost rider is barely in this movie, in the first movie he was in it a lot, but in this movie he gets his powers taken away, why? We want to see ghost rider, this is one of the worst comic book movies of all time

Did Marvel and Cage just get drunk 1 day and decide to make this movie?

Ghost rider was actually ok. This atrocity, however, is a dark mark on marvel.

This is my favorite superhero movie ever... - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

17 Supergirl

Supergirl looks like superman with photoshop hair and boobs, we're in for a good movie.

Why isn't this higher? There's nothing good about it.

The reboot series is better

It's just a T.V. show but yeah, Supergirl sucks

18 Superman Returns

It wasn't that bad, Kevin spacey did a great job as lex Luthor. It wasn't phenomenal or anything, but it was pretty good.

What what, this is thirteen on best, this is one of the best. I'm sorry you want explosions and punching, then sod off and watch mos. Plus no violence in superman one and it gets love.

Really? This movie is kindof boring but is not a bad movie. It had like 78% or something on rotten tomatoes for crying out loud. It does not deserve to be placed with these other truly bad movies in the top 10

I've heard this movie sucks. Glad Brandon Routh found a better superhero cast to be on.

19 Man of Steel

Bad screenplay, bad actor (including Henry Cavill and Amy Adams), poor OST, not soul. I prefer Superman Returns to this thing. They don't Know how show to superman in the cinema. I mean, Superman Lives not y yes for man of steel. I think what is the different between man of steel and superman lives? Nothing, the screenplays about two movies were destroy the history about superman. I think so.

I Like This Movie

It's not your typical marvel movie but it's way better than all of them, heck it's box office destroyed most of Phase one's. people don't see how realistic it would be if superman actually came to this world, because this movie clearly proves it. Beautiful Soundtrack and not to mention the next two movies B.V.S and Suicide Squad destroyed the first 3 marvel movies so imagine how great the future DC movies will be

Its fine but it has flaws - molasses

20 Batman Forever

Should be higher on the list, only saved by the fact that Batman & Robin was even worse.

This was a little...

It's not that bad. It's just more comical. This movie is the reason I love superheroes so much. Let me tell you the cycle:

I love Jim Carrey because he's my favourite comedian > Jim Carrey is the Riddler > The Riddler became my favourite Batman villain > I got Batman: Arkham City because it has the Riddler in it > I read Riddler comics > Then I gave Batman: The Animated Series a shot > I love Batman and his rogues gallery > Batman was in Justice League: The Animated Series > I watched it and now love DC superheroes > I watched the New 52 movies > Now I am a major fan of superhero movies. - Daviddv0601
