2014 was an interesting year for superhero movies. We had two sequels (Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Amazing Spider-Man 2), an “inbetweenquel” (X-Men: Days of Future Past), and something totally unique (Guardians of the Galaxy) which ended up being the highest grossing release of the four.
Each of these superhero movies had some good and bad points, some more than others. Ultimately though, it was a good year for the genre, even if the future of one of these franchises now appears to be in doubt.
Here, we take you through ten of the worst moments from 2014’s superhero movies, counting down the scenes, characters, and reveals which we most wish we could forget and hope not to see repeated in 2015 as Avengers: Age of Ultron, The Fantastic Four, and Ant-Man all make their presence felt before a busy 2016.
Part of what makes Beast such a great superhero for example is the fact that he’s trapped in his mutated form, so giving him the ability to go back and fore at will was a massive mistake and misses a crucial part of of Hank McCoy’s plight as a mutant.
It’s an odd decision too, because no disrespect to the talented Nicholas Hoult, but he’s not the kind of face you need plastered in the trailers to get people to see this movie when you have a cast which includes Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, and Jennifer Lawrence.
