10 Comic Book Characters Who've Never Had A Decent Movie

10. Jonah Hex

Warner Bros. Pictures

Years before Warner Bros took their scissors to Batman V Superman and Suicide Squad they cut up and reshot portions of this DC Comics adaptation, which seems to start about a third of the way through the story.

Murdered by his commanding officer in the Civil War and resurrected by Indians, Jonah Hex acquires the ability to communicate with the dead and sets out for revenge on his former boss, who by the way has faked his death in a hotel fire.

That’s a lot of exposition to dump into the first five minutes of a movie.

One person with no love for the finished film is Josh Brolin, who claims that the production was so rocky that the financiers urged “going back and reshooting sixty-six pages in twelve days.” They also seem to have shoehorned Megan Fox (then white hot after two Transformers films) into as many scenes as possible, all to no avail - the movie made barely $11 million worldwide.
