The Worst Superhero Movies Ever Made

List Criteria: Superhero movies only, please. Not supernatural or comic-book-like movies.

What are the worst superhero movies ever made? This list includes some of the most horrible attempts to bring to life favorite superheroes on the big screen. For that matter, many of the bad superhero movies listed here are without a doubt among the worst movies of all time, period. Disagree? Totally fine, just vote down the films you actually liked. Also, please add any horrible superhero movies that might be missing, and re-rank this list in any order you want.

And yes, if you see any of the newer superhero movie releases (including Man of Steel and James Mangold's The Wolverine), feel free to include them here if you thought they were terrible.

The worst superhero movies have you leaving the theater scratching your head, wondering why, WHY Hollywood got it so wrong. Can anyone argue that the Fantastic Four movies should have been way better than they were (they were awful, just dreadful)? Sure, sometimes Hollywood gets it right, as evidenced by this list of the best superhero movies ever made, but for every great superhero film, there are a slew of equally horrible ones.

Any list of truly awful superhero movies should include two of the worst offenders: Catwoman and Batman & Robin. Even with Halle Berry poured into a skin-tight, super-hot leather outfit, the movie still sucked. And Batman & Robin might have had some George Clooney action going on, but even the mighty Clooney couldn't save this train wreck of a film.

You'll notice some oldies listed among these awful superhero movies, too, and be warned: In some cases, you've likely forgotten all about these bad films. It's a self-preservation thing. You just want to erase these movies from your mind and forget that they ever happened. Apologies for the trauma.

Oh, and let's discuss horrible sequels and reboots: For whatever reason, some of the suckiest superhero movies ever made also have sequels, or someone decides to reboot them because they weren't bad enough to begin with. After suffering through The Punisher, did movie goers really need more punishment with The Punisher: War Zone? Yeah, some of these films are definitely among the worst movie sequels of all time.
