Worst Superhero Movies
The Top Ten
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.

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.
This should be number 1, it is a lot worse batman and robinV 9 Comments
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
What a mess! A step by step guide for how to make a movie about people with super powers boring and lame.
It's hard to think of any enjoyable moments from this film. It was so bleak and boring. - BKAllmighty

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
Cut it some slack for it a- oh... Oh.. OH.. - TheLastSirenV 7 Comments
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
Nah this movie wasn't as bad as everyone says.
Better than Batman & Robin
In retrospect this movie was mediocre but I enjoyed it for the most part

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
This was absolutely terrible. It should be way higher up.
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.
Very very boring

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.
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
I think the is the most dumbest superhero movie of all time, well not worser than batman and robin but it's lame, the movie is about the romance between peter and gwen, and the action is bad, the only villain than satisfy me is the green goblin, the only good thing is the dead of gwen
I Thought It Was Okay
2.5/4 From Me - JPK
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

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
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.
You guys honestly think that Superman Returns, Suicide Squad, Batman vs. Superman, Daredevil, and Green Lantern are worse than Howard the Duck? You would rather watch a movie with duck boobs, cheesy effects, and a romance between a duck and a human (that almost involves sex), than watch one of the other movies I listed above? They aren't masterpieces, but they aren't without redeemable qualities. Howard the Duck, however, is just an embaressment to everyone involved and an embaressment to watch.V 3 Comments
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
This movie deserves more respect even if this is not a masterpiece - Olive855
The 2015 one makes this one look like Citizen Kane
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 - TheLastSirenV 4 Comments
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
Why isn't this higher? There's nothing good about it.
Supergirl looks like superman with photoshop hair and boobs, we're in for a good movie.V 2 Comments
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.V 6 Comments
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
This is an amzing movie. one of my favorite dc comics moviesV 10 Comments
