Default Worst female performance in a Superhero movie?

Inspired by January Jones' "performance" as the White Queen in X-men First Class, which I was watching hours ago.

January Jones as Emma Frost

Katie Holmes as Rachel

Malin Ackerman as Silk Specter

Halle Berry as Storm

Halle Berry as Patience Philips

Wolverine's confused girlfriend in Origins.

In no order. It would be a nightmare to actually discern which one suck more than the other.

Man, this thread needs a poll, ask the mod if they can add one !

Hmmmmm.......

Kim Basinger in Batman 1989, the ultimate screeching damsel in distress, a simply terrible performance.


Halle Berry Catwoman...... at least she had the guts to go pick up her Razzie, so props to her !

Jessica Alba Fantastic Four ( yup, she's a scientist.....riiiight )


Kat Dennings in Thor and Thor TDW, because she was a distraction from an otherwise reasonable story, and is pretty much exactly the same in everything she appears in.

Blake Lively in Green Lantern - incredibly lacklustre, I mean Kirsten Dunst had ups and downs but Lively was uniformly terrible !


Kirsten Dunst - but only for the singing in Spider Man 3, that was simply dreadful, no wonder nobody went to see her play ! Otherwise I thought she was pretty good as MJ, who's kind of a fickle mush-head anyway.

Marion Cotillard - but only for the death scene in TDKR, worst death scene ever !

Eva Mendes was pretty awful in Ghost Rider.

Faye Dunaway in Supergirl was pretty terrible !

I guess Anna Paquin was really terrible in DOFP, because they cut her scenes out !

Kate Bosworth was absolutely dreadful in Superman Returns. She made Lois effin' Lane, boring, unappealing and devoid of any energy. She was just reciting lines until it was time to leave with a paycheck.

The whole cast was just as drab. Everyone acted like there was somewhere else they wanted to be. So this may have more to do with Bryan Singer's direction than it does with Kate Bosworth's acting ability, but...yeah, she sucked.

Snaps, I forgot about Natalie Portman in Thor. But I guess she was just that, forgettable. A completely boring performance.

Bryce Dallas was also bad in Spider-man 3.

Some I haven't seen and can't comment on (but Lively was strikingly bad in the trailer for Green Lantern), but the worst I have seen was probably January Jones.

Drew Barrimore in Batman Forever.
I could smell the stench of her few minutes of performance just thinking about it.
Oh, the nightmares.

Tru dat, she was terrible, the only thing is that I don't really notice it, because in every scene she's in with Tommy Lee Jones he's actually WORSE ! Hard to believe, but true.

Isn't that the point of the thread? To discern which one sucked more (that came out wrong)? Maybe you could change the title to "the worst female performances in superhero movies".

Anyway...Basinger was very cartoony in B89.

"COULD YOU PASS THE SALT??"

However I think I would go with Jessica Alba as Sue Storm.

I can't think of any female performances that were particularly egregious. Margot Kidder's Lois Lane was terrible, but I always attributed that to the writing. Talisa Soto's Vampirella was also bad, but her performance was the product of an overall crappy movie.

Oh yeah, I forgot about Jessica Alba as Sue Storm. But to be fair, this is a thread about performances, and putting Alba on the list indicates that she actually gave one.
