Re: Most disappointing comic-book movie
The answer is Spider-Man 3. Above any others that film had the most good will behind it and it so utterly squandered most all of it.
Something like X3, while disappointing, isn't the same because it had been taken over by a lesser director after the first two. The expectations attached to it were much fewer.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
