In the recent years, the MCU and the DCEU are dominating Hollywood, with the release of a movie every few months, they have literally taken over the cinematic world. However, the history of Marvel films extends long before the MCU was ever created. Previously, they made films under the banner of Marvel Entertainment. Even though it has enjoyed slightly more success in comparison to DC in the very recent past, it’s difficult to forget some of the stinkers made on Marvel characters in the past. Here is the list of top 10 worst marvel movies ever made.
10. Spider-Man 3 (2007)
Imagine the hype if the next Spiderman film was gonna feature the Sandman, Venom and Green Goblin, all at the same time. Oh, and it also was going to include Black Spiderman, the upgraded version of Spiderman from the comics. That is exactly what ‘Spider-Man 3’ promised. However, it seemed that the writers went in a little over their head with the amount of different stories they tried to cram into the film. Although the first two films in the series weren’t the greatest films ever made, the best feature about them was how focused they were. Right from the beginning of Spider-Man 3 however, the parallel story lines get messy and finally crash and collapse to wreck the film. The main villains are given a very short amount of screen time and the themes of ‘inner conflict’ which the film set out to explore becomes a joke. Sam Raimi is undoubtedly a talented director, but he will definitely regard this film as one of his biggest failures.
9. Elektra (2005)
After the horror that was the Daredevil film, it was no surprise that people had their doubts when a ‘spin-off’ film was announced with Jennifer Garner in the lead, reprising her role as Elektra. Their doubts were justified when the movie bombed horribly at the box office. The slow and illogical plot did the movie no favours and the only thing that the film had going for itself was the decent performance of Garner. A lot of plot points in the film are sketchy and left unexplained and at times, there are sequences which have no relevance to the story at all. The villains look ridiculous at times and the CGI is below average for a big budget Hollywood production.
