Re: Most disappointing comic-book movie
Hulk by Ang Lee, after Spider-Man and X-Men the Hulk was like Marvel's #2 superhero that the expectations for a live action CGI Hulk were very high that in the end while decent acting by some Nick Nolte's crazed David Banner didn't make any sense especially the end interrogation when he just goes ape ***** in the military compound.
As for second tiers like Elektra, Ghost Rider, Catwoman, Fantastic Four their poor performances weren't surprising since they're terrible characters to begin with.
Self-contained stories part of a larger story is where its at. Not this writing for the trade nonsense. If you're going to write for the trade, don't release it in individual issues. Just release the trade.
