10 Worst Performances In Comic Book Movies

Nicolas Cage as Ghost Rider was always a bit of an odd choice...

Columbia Pictures

The world of superhero movies is much different than it was a few decades ago. Ever since Christopher Reeve wowed us in the first iteration of Superman, there's always been a lot more care put into these movies than just depicting a man in a tight suit who likes hitting things a lot. However, for every down to earth performance you get, there's always a few actors who haven't done their homework.

Whether it's the stinkers of yesteryear or some of today's dumpster fires, these actors didn't have the first clue as to what the superheroes they were depicting were supposed to do. Does that mean that these actors are terrible at their jobs? No... not really. In fact, most of these actors are highly respected for their work in other films, but for whatever reason things couldn't line up to create magic with these characters.

These lackluster performances might not even be the actor's fault, with countless scenes being cut or being given really bad direction from the folks behind the camera. Regardless of whatever excuse is at play, it doesn't make any of these performances any less insufferable to watch.

It's the opportunity of a lifetime to be in a superhero movie, but these actors weren't equipped for the job just yet.

I'm just a junkie for all things media. Whether it's music, movies, TV, or just other reviews, I absolutely adore this stuff. But music was my first love, and I love having the opportunity to share it with you good people.
