Superhero movie fight scenes are a vital part of the genre, and while you might think it’s hard to mess up the recreation of such a frequent occurrence from the source material, it happens far too often. Sadly not every movie succeeds and we count down ten of the very worst superhero and supervillain battles right here.
Some failed to deliver the exciting sort of visuals fans have come to expect, while others were just poorly put together or plain silly and disappointing.
10. X-Men vs. Magneto (X-Men)
In terms of action, Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past looks set to be one of the biggest superhero movie releases of 2014. However, the director was still finding his feet with X-Men in 2000, and the climatic battle between the X-Men and Magneto was nowhere near as big or as memorable as it should have been.
We never REALLY got to see the team of mutants working as, well, a team! It had its moments, but lacked the sort of excitement found in the X-Men comic books when they clashed with the Master of Magnetism. However, this was a minor issue in an otherwise very good superhero movie, but still bad enough to warrant a place here. X-2 more than made up for this though, while X-Men: First Class portrayed Magneto in a far more effective manner overall!
