5 Superhero Movies You Wish Were Just Bad Dreams

Published

on

There was a time when most superhero movies were duds, and it wasn’t as long ago as you think. When we think of terrible superhero movies, we typically look at flicks from before 2000, but you don’t need to look that far back. The following are five movies from after 2000 that’ll make you think, “wait, I didn’t just dream that?”

Elektra

Terribly acted. Terribly written. And terribly boring. Elektra, a spin-off of Ben Affleck’s Daredevil no one asked for, managed to turn the most hardcore Elektra fans into ambivalent spectators. Fans would have to wait for the second season of Netflix’s Daredevil to finally see the character done justice. Unfortunately, the team listed next is still waiting for a good adaptation.

20th Century Fox

Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer

There have been three poorly-done Fantastic Four movies, but this snoozefest has one thing that FF fans still groan about: turning fan-favorite character Galactus into a giant space cloud. In the comics, Galactus is a giant who devours planets. In this, he is a cloud bent on destroying Earth — but a cloud nonetheless. Exciting.

20th Century Fox

Jonah Hex

Jonah Hex is a rushed mess that seems like a sequel to Wild Wild West. There’s a lot that isn’t clear in this film, including how it is that Jonah Hex can talk with the dead. Also, considering how absurd the movie is, the tone is ridiculously serious. You’d think a film with mutant cage fighters could afford to be light-hearted every once and awhile.

Warner Bros.

The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen

The league is a Victorian Age superhero squad consisting of literary figures like Dr. Jeykll and Mr. Hyde, Tom Sawyer, and Dorian Gray. Sounds awesome, right? It should’ve been. Instead, we got a convoluted mess that makes us think they ditched the script along the way. Alan Moore’s characters feel flat and their motivations are incoherent, leaving the story to rely on mind-numbing special effects. To be fair, they didn’t butcher the source material nearly as much as the next movie on our list.

Angry Films

Catwoman

The only thing that Halle Berry’s Catwoman has in common with the source material is the name “Catwoman.” Everything else is a campy imitation of Spider-Man. A cat with ties to ancient Egypt gives her the powers of a cat — including fantastic balance, a tendency to hiss, and a disturbing attraction to catnip. And a major craving for tuna. A lot of tuna.
