Even the most hardcore comic book movie fans have to admit that there have been some terrible entries into the genre. This year has already delivered a couple that have really divided people, with a large number declaring them “awful” – namely Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and X-Men: Apocalypse.
That said, the jury is still out on whether they will join the sorry bunch that are unanimously labelled the worst superheroes films of all-time – like Batman & Robin, Fantastic Four (either one really) and Green Lantern.
Yet, even these movies, which otherwise do their best to sully the good names of the superheroes they star, offer up something worthwhile that hints at the brilliant films they could have been. To use one of the above examples, Apocalypse made up for its lack of character focus in the rest of the film with one powerful scene where Magneto suffers a terrible personal tragedy.
Likewise, the following list showcases eight amazing scenes from otherwise awful superhero movies. As always, feel free to drop a comment below and let us know if you agree with our picks or not.
