Okay, after the release of Dark Phoenix, and the strong negative reaction it seems to have got I've been thinking about how adaptations of comic book stories sometimes go well and sometimes go awry. I'm not a purist, so I realise that to translate a story from a comic to the big screen almost always requires changes to the story/characters/setting etc. However, sometimes filmmakers change a story so much that its unrecognisable, sometimes they try to be faithful but just do a terrible job of filmmaking. What I'm interested is in people's least favourite adaptation - and suggestions about which adaptation is the worst to date. These may not be the same thing e.g. you might think Days of Future Past is the worst adaptation, because of the story changes but still prefer it to another adaptation, like Age of Ultron. I realise that for most people worst and least favourite are likely to be the same film, and it may be easier for folks to talk about a few films that are terrible adaptations. This is also why the poll allows for multiple choices. Before anyone freaks out, I'm putting some selections in the poll like Logan, Captain America:The Winter Soldier, and the Infinity Saga (Infinity War/Endgame) which I think are superbs film (and plenty of people agree with me- but some may not like as adaptations as they are substantially different than the comic book stories. I have tried not to include origin films in the poll, because every origin film is an adaptation by default - and origin films deserve their own thread (and plenty have them already). For our non-English speaking brothers and sister super-fans, "Eponymous" in the poll means that the film's title is the same as the comic book story the fim is adapting As always, if people want to go off on tangents that's cool because discussion is what it"s all about. For me, my least favourite adaptation would have to be Days of Future Past - it's not a bad film (and has the rare accomplishment of making Quicksilver cool, because in the comics he's usually a giant *****e bag) but I don't feel like the focus on Wolverine served the story well at all or had anywhere near the impact of the comic book story, which was pretty shocking and way ahead of its time. ( It's a better film than X-Men the Last Stand, which ruins the Dark Phoenix storyline by shoehorning it in to the main storyline. Although, otherwise I enjoyed TLS ). However, the worst adaptation for me is League of Extra Ordinary Gentlemen ( which is simply a terrible film all around ) it has virtually nothing in common with the source material except the characters' names and the big-ass submarine. Oops, I guess its an origin film, oh well. Interestingly, I find Constatine (Keanu Reeves) to be an enjoyable film, but a dreadful adaptation.
