10 Moments Comic Book Movies Dropped The Ball

That Hulk-Widow romance is still just about the weirdest thing to come out of the MCU so far...

Marvel Studios

Over the last ten years, comic book movies have become more and more popular, to the point that it is now one of the most lucrative genres in the entire industry. At the time of writing, 13 of the 47 movies to have grossed over one billion dollars are adaptations of comic books.

However, with the potential financial benefits of such a movie comes a heightened risk of scrutiny and criticism. Since movie studios are taking characters and stories already beloved by an army of loyal, devoted, and die hard fans, any kind of mistake or direction taken that such fans don't like will be highlighted more than ever.

While there are infamous comic book movies that disappointed audiences on almost every level, even the most popular are far from perfect. Some of the greatest comic book movies of all time include even just one scene that fans can't help but feel let down by.

Whether such mistakes are the fault of the actors, the directors, the editors, or a mix of several key members of the team, they simply don't go unnoticed, no matter how small.
