Worst Superhero Movies

The Top Ten

1 Batman & Robin

Even Joel Schumacher Hated it.

I wanted to watch it because I like Batman and Robin. So I was really excited. And when I watched this movie, I was SO Disappointed. And their costumes were terrible. And it looked like u can see their nipples

Blatant plotholes - ElSherlock

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

2 Catwoman

This movie is absolutely hilarious. Would recommend it to a group of drunk friends, 10/10.

Catwoman should be number 1 - SimeOh

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.

3 Fantastic Four (2015)

This is such an Interesting Disaster.

Has nothing to do with Fantastic Four

This has lots of padding - ElSherlock

Definitely not top 5 - SimeOh

4 Superman IV: The Quest for Peace

The effects were awful and nuclear man was a stupid villain and everything about him makes no sense

Poor acting - ElSherlock

Those flying sequences were amazing.

Yes, that was sarcasm. - Ashes

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?

5 Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice

It was extremely edgy and made no since to me. - RosalinaX

I wasted 3 hours and hope of my

Way too over hyped and tries too hard to be a good movie. At least most of the other movies high up in this list knew they were bad movies in the first place and don't try to hide that fact. Add in the fact that this was to be a starting point for the DCU, it created a complete disaster for subsequent films to try and fix.

This really shouldn't be on the list. It was good, it wasn't bad, but it's definitely not top 10 worst list worthy - SimeOh

6 Elektra

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

Hey look! The spinoff nobody asked for! - Solarian

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 Green Lantern

The plot is weak and boring - ElSherlock

It's bad but not top 10 worthy - SimeOh

This is worse than Howard the duck you gotta be kidding me - Dvafan2

This movie was eh - Dvafan2

8 Howard the Duck

Best - Ashes

This is my least favourite movie of all time

The special effects are poorly done - ElSherlock

Should be way higher - SimeOh

9 Steel

Ok this was horrible it should be at least number 3 - SimeOh

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

10 Suicide Squad

This movie sucks more than something I might get banned for mentioning - Ashes

Worst movie I've ever watched.

It was mediocre at best - Dvafan2

Sorry but I loved this movie and it's my favorite DCEU film - SimeOh


The Contenders

11 The Amazing Spider-Man 2

I thought it was pretty good. - RosalinaX

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 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 okay. Not amazing, but deserves more respect than it gets. Quite underrated in my opinion. - Solarian

12 Daredevil

Best marvel movie

Ben affleck always has to ruin everything - Dvafan2

It's just so generic

I thought it was pretty good

13 Ghost Rider (2007)

I liked this movie but the second one is terrible - The_Monster

Yes they could have casted Johnny better - The_Monster

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

14 Fantastic Four

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

It is just plain boring

15 Hulk

That thing was the stuff of nightmares.Rekkt! - bendyfazjazz234

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

16 Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

This is the epitome of sequels that should never have been greenlit. This movie just shouldn't exist. - Solarian

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.

17 Captain America (1990)

This one is on here twice

18 Supergirl

Should be #1, this is truely horrible - RyanSmith123014

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

The reboot series is better

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

19 X-Men Origins: Wolverine


That video game though - xandermartin98

A horrible movie that butchered 2 of the greatest X-Men characters ever, Deadpool and Gambit

It's good until half of the movie, the second half is awful - Ale9991

20 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

Worse than man of steel, but still kinda good. I personally don't agree with the critics - TheLastSiren

21 Batman Forever

I'm sure it's nowhere near as bad as Batman and Robin. - Solarian

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

22 Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer

Come on guys, even though the first one was bad, this one is actually really good

I just hate what they did to galactus, seriously, that wasn't galactus it was a storm cloud

I hate them all! Their asss! Their not heroes! I want Luigi to kick their ass hard as he can!

Some people forget, this movie was meant for kids. it wasn¨t meant to be taken that seriously.

23 Man of Steel

I liked it - SimeOh

This was a good movie. I mean, it could have used more substance, but it was still pretty enjoyable. - Solarian

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

24 Captain America

Let's just forget this film exists, okay? - Solarian

Batman and robin was bad, but it was bad in a fun way.

This is just disappointingly bad

The Reboot Was Better Then This Piece Of Crap

I didn't know that the reboot was a reboot this movie was so bad (yet it made a reference).

25 Spider-Man 3

Worst superhero movie and story ever! I was actually about to throw up during the whole evil parker dance

I would rather watch this over the Amazing Spider-Man Movies any day.

Stupid - sonictiger

This may not be the worst Spiderman movie (amazing Spiderman movies are in my opinion) but this movie has Peter doing the upside down kiss with Gwen the same night he was supposed to propose to MJ and has infamous emo spidey. Need I say more?

26 Hulk (2003)

This one is on here twice

27 Fantastic Four (1994)

It was never actually released, but those who've seen it at screening confirm it's absolutely torturous. - Solarian

28 Dragonball: Evolution

Its an insult to dbz - Dvafan2

I’m getting that live action ATLA (2010) feel from just looking at the poster. -_-

Awful, Justice awful. An insult no to only to DB fans, but to anyone who saw this movie!

29 Jonah Hex

Awful - SimeOh

30 The Spirit
31 Green Hornet

Awesome super hero, but Seth Rogen ruined this movie. - Mightyena5875345

32 Batman

Umm What? - SimeOh

What? This movie is awesome!

What? This was a great movie!

This was awesome

33 Judge Dredd
34 The Incredible Hulk

Honestly this movie is underrated - SimeOh

Why is this up here? 1,000000.000000 times better than that piece of HULK garbage in 2003.

This is also one of the most UNDERRATED superhero movies ever.

35 Teen Titans Go! To the Movies Teen Titans Go! To the Movies

Should be number 1 teen titans go is a disgrace to the comics and ruins the justice league even more after the awfulness of the justice league film that no one liked

This Movie Was 100% On Rotten Tomatos So It's A Good Movie I've Never Scene It So... - WWEWBMortalKombatFan

36 Justice League

Holy crap this movie was BAD.

The Flash was literally just a copy and paste of Peter Parker from the MCU films

Aqua Man was a complete joke that I could not take seriously in the slightest.

Cyborg was blander than a nun's sex life

Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman were the only good characters in this, and even then their script made them do so many dumb things that it killed their characters.

The CGI and EVEN THE GREEN SCREENS are so horrendously noticeable that it's almost like this movie was doing movies from the 80's

Steppenwolf is a disgrace to the actual band is probably just as bad as the Lizzard from The Amazing Spider-Man

Batman kills people for no reason at all.

The plot is just BAD.

Everything with this dropped the ball. It's literally trying to copy the Avenger's so bad and it does such a terrible job at it. Hell, I'd rather watch Batman vs Superman over this crap and I'm being completely honest! EVEN BATMAN ...more - RyanSmith123014

This movie was so bad I wanted to vomit at the end.
It's story is really stupid and boring: "Oh, let's go resurrect Superman so he can get in a fight with us then go defeat some alien guy! "
The special effects were really cringey.
The characters don't feel real or original. Only one I appreciated was Wonder Women.
Flash was an idiot during this, and for some reason that wasn't made entirely clear in the film was why they dragged Aquaman into it.
So disappointing. Even the movies above it are all better then this garbage. - RosalinaX

Justice league SUCKS!

This movie disappointed me sooo much...

37 Blade Trinity

One of the worst films of all time. OF ALL TIME. - NickWillems

Good, but definitely the weakest of the three. - Mrveteran

38 Thor: The Dark World

But Loki was hilarious!

39 Three Supermen and a Mad Girl Three Supermen and a Mad Girl
40 The Punisher (1989)
41 Transformers: Age of Extinction
42 X-Men: The Last Stand
43 Iron Man 2

Kinda dull, but by no means AWFUL.

Most boring dissapointing superhero film ever

The best out of marvel films. 3rd favorite movie ever.

44 The Shadow
45 Spawn

Should be #2 - SimeOh

Terrible effects, awful jokes, and the worst part about it, it was released the same year Batman and Robin was released. And even worse, this movie was made at a time before the Internet and social media where hardcore comic book fans would completely tear an awful comic movie apart for being so bad.

The cape, enough said

Holy hell, this was awful, I got major nausea from every single effect in this movie, the violator was such a dumb bad guy (and it was John L, Spawn's cape look like crap, the devil looked BEYOND HORRENDOUS, and of course, 1 of the dumbest villain lines in history, "kickstart the apocalypse now"
😩 Why? Just why? And it was John Leguizamo so it's even worse

46 Deadpool

Get this OFF the list please - RyanSmith123014

I don't see how anyone could call this bad - SimeOh

Deadpool was awesome

It's a goood movie man it should not be on the worst movie list

47 The Amazing Bulk

They actually put a negative review on the DVD cover. - myusernameisthis

I want to know why the 1989 Batman is ranked above this. Catwoman or Batman and Robin suck, but watch this, and you will feel sorry for not giving it number 1. - 445956

This movie SUCKS! MS paint background, you can EASILY tell it's green screen, the acting is ATROCIOUS, everythig looks like a little kid did it, and it's just and abomination, then, Bulk himself also looks like an abomination, the CG's TERRIBLE, and bulk is just a plain RIP-OFF of hulk. - GamingGoku757

Why is this not higher?!? It’s terrible! I am glad that the director was a good sport about receiving criticism though, unlike some other directors out there (cough)Derek Savage(cough). That’s the only good thing about this movie, and the movie barely has anything to do with that.

48 Son of the Mask

This will give people nightmares for the rest of their lives.

49 Kick-Ass 2

This piece of crap was so disappointing. Really is just a bad movie and nothing else.

This movie was terrible. Matthew Vaughn even admitted it, yikes! - NickWillems

Such a dissapointment! I loved the first Kick-Ass, my second favourite superhero movie only to The Dark Knight. Kick-Ass 2 pretty much ruined Hit-Girl! Not enough action sequences, either. - NickWillems

Jeff Wide Load is the main reason this sucked
