For about four to five decades now, we've been hit with some simply spectacular Marvel superhero films such as "Iron Man", "Thor", "The Avengers", "Guardians of the Galaxy", and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier. But unfortunately, we've also been hit with some not so spectacular Marvel superhero films. So, I'm here to give you 5 times that we've gotten bad Marvel superhero films!
Note: This list contains some films that are not from the MCU. The list is for any movie based on a Marvel character. Also, there may be spoilers.for some films. So, proceed at your own risk. And again, these are my own opinion. Also, this list is in no particular order. So, if you don't agree, please don't start hating me. Just comment and share your opinions in a civil way.
You ready? Alright, Let's get started!
5) Hulk (2003)
This Hulk film had promise, yet director Ang Lee simply couldn't give us a good Hulk film, unfortunately. Ang Lee tried to give us the very popular comic book feel to the film by giving us multiple screens at once, but I guess that the multi-screen way just isn't the way to go. The CGI was, well, the CGI in "Star Wars" 26 years before in 1977 was better. The casting was very bad, especially Eric Bana as The Hulk. But there were some good parts such as Hulk throwing the tank and the way that we got Hulk's origins in a clear way but without taking up half of the film. (We saw his origins in the first few minutes of the film.)
4) Daredevil (2003)
Well, what can you say? Just about everything was bad. I could barely finish watching the film. While it's much more fun and enjoyable than "Hulk", it still is bad. Ben Affleck, while alright in the role of Matt Murdock aka Daredevil, was still not as good as another actor could have been. Elektra, as portrayed by Jennifer Garner, was one of the few good parts of the film. Also, Michael Clarke Duncan's Kingpin was a good part of the film. But I think that the film suffered from bad writing and a poor director. Overall, it's a bad film with few redeemable parts.
3) Iron Man 2
Iron Man 2, The second film in our beloved MCU, is an OK film, but it's still bad. But of course, not as bad as "Hulk" or "Daredevil". The villain, Whiplash, was bad. Some good parts were Justin Hammer and Black Widow. RDJ was once again great as our favorite genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist. But the plot was a little bit of a bore. So, it's a very enjoyable film, but it's definitely not one of the best Marvel films.
2) X-Men: The Last Stand (2007)
X3 has many bad parts, like Juggernaut sized bad parts. Speaking of the Juggernaut, the Juggernaut was crap. I mean, my grandma could've given us a better Juggernaut, even though she doesn't even know who the heck the Juggernaut is. There are a lot of bad parts, but I won't go into them all, because you probably know all of them or have heard of them. But fortunately for us, Singer brought us the X-Men we know and love again in "X-Men: First Class". It's definitely a bad film.
1) Spider-Man 3
Just like X3, this film had great potential. The first two Raimi Spider-Man films were great - just like Singer's X-Men, but we got a bad third film. While Sandman was a good villain, he was greatly misused, covered up by Green Goblin and Venom. Venom was really bad, but that's because the Sony heads forced Raimi to put him in the film. To maple matters worse, there were only a couple of redeemable parts, whereas X3 at least had a lot of good to counter some of the bad.
So, what do you think of my list? Spot on or no? Comment and tell me which film you thought was the worst. Remember, if you don't agree with me, please don't start hating in the comments. Just comment and share your opinions in a civil way.
Also, I will be posting a list of bad DC comics films, coming on Sunday, June 14. Until next time, Goodbye and thanks for reading!!!
