THE WORST SUPERHERO MOVIES OF ALL TIME

The 2 shining lights were Evans and Chiklis.

 

I thought their Reed Richards nailed the appearance as closely as humanly possible. And he pulled off looking absent-minded from time to time...but that could have just been the actor struggling to remember his lines.

Remove the vomit-inducing Teeter-Totter fight scene,  and I'd give Daredevil a solid B.

I never understood the hate for Daredevil. Sure, it has flaws, but it was one of the earliest superhero movies to be filmed in comic-book style and imagery. Some parts are very well done IMHO. The sce

I liked the two Fantastic Four movies with Alba, Gruffudd, Chiklis and Evans, but as I said earlier they weren't the groundbreaking, game-changing movies we've come to expect since the MCU came into play.  I, for one, would have liked there to be more movies with that cast--but I doubt Alba would have returned after director Tim Story's treatment of her.  (He was supposed to have told Alba in one scene of the second movie that she "Wasn't crying prettily enough."  Just how is one supposed to cry pretty?)

 

But again--no Goldface?  No Argoman?  No Black Scorpion? (The first movie was okay, the TV series was a tremendous disappointment.)  No Blankman?

What?  Condorman isn't on this list?  Or Pumaman?  Or Supersonic Man?   Or any of the Turkish or Indian adaptations of Superman?  Or Rat Pfink a BooBoo?   (I'll let you look those up for yourselves.)

 

I've seen a number of movies on this list--many of them, like Green Lantern, are not bad--they just aren't the groundbreaking movies that were Ricard Donner's Superman, or Tim Burton's Batman, or Sam Raimi's Spider-Man, or Bryan Singer's X-Men, or any of the MCU movies up to and including The Avengers.  Those set a really high bar for moviemakers to vault over, and not all of them make it.  Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman is one that does;  the MCU version of Spider-Man--not so much.

 

For myself, I'd like to see even more superhero movies and TV series, and not just DC and Marvel.  Sylvester Stallone has a movie coming out next year called Samaritan--no relation to the Astro City character, apparently.  The downside to there being more superhero movies and TV is we get more stuff like Brightburn and The Boys, made by people who hate superheroes.

Ugh, I utterly despised the MCU Spider-man movie.  I actually didn't watch Far From Home because I despised the first one so much, I actually walked out in the middle of it because I disliked it so much.  Barely competent Spidey would be bad enough but condescending abusive Tony Stark was a step to far.

I concur, although I was able to make it through the whole movie.  Even the Captain America cameos were disappointing, as was their version of MJ--which seemed to me to be a bad emulation of Daria Morgendorfer, if anyone remembers that character.  I suppose they felt the "va-va-voom" version of the character was inappropriate for a high schooler, but still.  .  .

 

The Spider-Man of the comics never needed a mentor. Nor did he need a Cadillac Spider-Suit with more gadgets than James Bond's Aston Martin. He got by just fine on his own, even with the press, the public, and every lawbreaker this side of The Red Skull against him--and that included The Red Skull on a couple of occasions. That was what was so disappointing about the MCU's Spider-Man, who's basically become a wholly owned subsidiary of Stark Enterprises.

 

I didn't bother with the second movie, either.  I seriously doubt I'll bother with the third.

I think most of the regulars here can back me up when I say that I am the first person to admit that I know absolutely nothing about comic books.  However, I have read some Iron Man way, _way_ back when, and I have to say that condescending abusive Tony Stark seemed pretty much spot-on for the character I remember.

 

I don't know how accurate this was, but the buddy that was handing me these things to read (I was confused; my only other comic experience was Captain Marvel from _years_ before that; Captain Marvel seemed like what I expected a superhero to be.  Tony Stark was a horse's ass) kept insisting that Iron Man was a redemption story: the superhero alter ego was to atone for who he was as a person, the evil he did, etc.

 

Again: I have no idea how accurate that was, but I do know that the Tony Stark I am familiar with was very much condescending abusive Tony Stark.

 

 

The rest of the comments-- I'll totally take your word for it.  I know who Spiderman _is_, obviously, but all I know about him comes from the three Toby McGuire movies and the three Nicholas Hammond movies in the seventies.

 

I didn't like the last Toby McGuire movie:  it should have been _at least_ two movies, preferably three, or-- even better-- drop the whole gooey alien costume thing entirely.  I know that character (whose name escapes me at the moment) is as popular as coats in Alaska, but it's like the Punisher:  it starts nowhere and just stays there.
