It wasn’t too long ago in the annals of cinema history that comic book movies were relatively few and far between, with standout character development and performances limited to the likes of Christopher Reeve’s Superman and Michael Keaton’s Batman. Nowadays, with the glut of comic book movies released each year and the quality of characters and actors within them ever increasing most comic book fans must be in geek heaven.

But not all comic book characters make a smooth transition from page to silver screen – either in days gone by or more recently – and for every brilliant character like Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark there’s also a disappointingly misinterpreted Mary Jane Watson or Juggernaut.

Be they ludicrously adapted superheroes or sidekicks, annoying love interests or bad guys that are about as villainous as a Labrador puppy, the forthcoming comic book movie characters all have one thing in common: We don’t like them.
