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.
O Captain! My Captain! Rise up and hear the bells.
Rise up, for you the flag is flung, for you the bugle trills.
For you bouquets and ribbon'd wreaths, for you the shores a-crowding.
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning.
