Yeah but the TDKR had the IMAX boost. Everybody seems to overlook that.

From a purely expectation based point of view, I'll have to say Spider-Man. I'd label most of the choices in the list as worse films, but I didn't expect much from them so I can't honestly call them disappointing.

After all the CBMs are done this year(just in case), someone should make a new poll asking for what CB fans find disappointing, but I'd suggest it'd be a multiple choice poll. I'll even volunteer into making the next poll/thread and I'll be sure to add in polarizing CBMs as well as films that should be on this poll even.

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.

I was just going to say for me, the most disappointing comic book movie ever was Ghost Rider. He's always been my #1 guy and the first film sucked in every way possible. I didn't even bother with the 2nd.

I might have to go with Captain America due to the importance of the character and the potential it had. I felt the film was solid for the most part with the exception of the villain and the action.

I felt the film should have took a more gritty and mature vibe. Instead they had corny action, Hydra(instead of Nazis) shooting lasers which just reminded me of G.I.Joe: Rise of Cobra.

I felt extremely disappointed when I left the theater.

Man, that's a bummer. Had Ghost Rider toys as a kid and always thought it was a cool character. Feel bad for you guys that waited your entire lives for it and then Sony just took a giant dump on the character.

If only he wasn't a jumping fella in his opinion
I enjoy the movie these days, it was a disappointment, but it's fine now

You never liked Catwoman? Selina Kyle?
Fantastic Four are fine, I think the characters deserve more respect

But it was still the most disappointing because I feel like GL is such a high concept that it really only had one shot of ever taking off. With that movie, it got its shot at the A-list, big-budget Hollywood treatment - likely the best shot it would ever get - and they completely blew it. Which is tragic to me, because more than almost any of the "top tier" heroes, I feel like GL had the most potential to create a truly epic universe. I mean, GL stories literally span the whole universe. That franchise could have been the Star Wars of CBMs, dammit. So its creative and financial failure represents to me not just some bad installment in a still successful franchise (like Spidey 3 or X3) or a speed bump in getting a well-known marquee character off the ground (like Hulk and SR), but the almost certain, premature death of a potentially amazing franchise before it ever got started. So, unlike the other disappointments in the poll (a couple of which I don't consider disappointments at all), I don't feel we were simply robbed of a great movie with Green Lantern - I feel we were robbed of several great movies.
This is such a great post. I was cheering for GL to succeed. Remember only a few years ago rumors of Jack Black in the title role? Then they came up with this project, which seemed to completely embrace the comics! This was going to be a gateway that opened up all kinds of possibilities for movies and TV, and comics promotions as well.

I was also slightly worried about the preliminary footage, but I'm an optimist at heart. There was enough on the surface to make me still feel excited. It really blows my mind how badly they screwed up the story and characters. It's like they were trying to make something for "SyFy" Originals, instead of a major summer blockbuster. This is why GL is the most disappointing movie, to me.

Man, I was really surprised at how much I liked Captain America! I have to admit, I was one of the naysayers. I complained briefly, but at length in a few posts on the boards here and then basically gave up hope for the movie. When it came out, some friends who share my viewpoints on a lot of things recommended it to me. I enjoyed it from start to finish with a few minor nitpicks. Overall, I felt they knocked it out of the park.

Yes, I would've preferred less use of the lasers, but the overall tone was fine. It really did feel like it did justice to the Cap comics I grew up reading, which had high-flying, unrealistic action, lasers, aliens and all sorts of weirdness. I thought the villains were great. There's almost always going to be a certain amount of camp, but they didn't go overboard. I really didn't need to see the classic costume lampooned as it was. But 90% of the movie was just great fun and top-notch acting and storytelling.

Thanks! And yeah, I had completely forgotten about those Jack Black rumors, so...I suppose it always could've been worse. But on the other hand, if it HAD been a failed Jack Black comedy version, then I'd still have hope that someone would think they went about it the wrong way and might actually attempt a serious take as reboot in a few years. So in other words, I might have more hopes for a reboot than I do right now. Aaaaand now I'm depressed again, lol.

Green Lantern. Not the worse film on the list, I think. But personally the most disappointing since I had such high hopes for the movie. Thought the movie itself was gonna prove people wrong about the previews but nope. I even joined the Hype in preparation for the movie to come out.

AngHulk is much less disappointing to me now (in 2013) because now we have TIH and The Avengers. Same with the Schumacher Batmans, Spider-Man 3, X-Men 3, etc.

Movies like Green Lantern, Daredevil and Ghost Rider, the only adaptations of that specific character are the most disappointing because there's nothing else to fall back on.

Yeah for sure. I mean, I'll be the first to say it wasn't my favorite Nolan film. But the "Most disappointing comic-book movie" ???

Not by the longest of shots... In fact, it's by far the least disappointing on this list.

Well, except for maybe Cap. I was literally not expecting jack-sh** from a Captain America movie back in 2011. And I was absolutely shocked by how much I liked it. TDKR might have disappointed me a sliver more.

Disappointing is a relative term. TDKR could totally be the "most disappointing movie" if you went in with impossible expectations. Or even just ordinary expectations; most people consider it inferior to TDK, so if you went in expecting "as good as TDK," you'd be disappointed.

I expected a grand finale, and I certainly received one.

Batman Begins has something that The Dark Knight doesn't have.

The Dark Knight has something The Dark Knight Rises doesn't have.

The Dark Knight Rises has something that The Dark Knight or Batman Begins doesn't have.

And THAT'S what makes The Dark Knight Trilogy such a masterpiece because each film gives the viewers something the other two installments doesn't. They're special in their own way, but as one whole story, it's a work of art, imo.

Or you could own up to the fact that TDKR was on par with SM3 as the poll indicates.
