Worst Third Superhero Movie

This is a pattern that most of us have probably noticed. Third movies in a superhero franchise tend to suck. These movies get tons of hate, but which of them did you think was the absolute worst?

Superman III
Batman Forever
Blade: Trinity
X-Men: The Last Stand
Spider-Man 3

Re: Worst Third Superhero Movie

How could anyone NOT say Superman III????

If you limit it to this decade, I'd pick Blade Trinity. Such a disappointment after the first two were so good and basically created the modern day comic book movie.

I actually like Batman Forever aside from the camp. I liked X-Men 3 for all the new characters in it, even if they ruined Phoenix. And I found Spider-Man 3 to be the most tolerable of the movies just for having three villains in it (found the first two way too boring and soap opera).

As big a Superman fan as I am, I hate to admit they screwed up with Superman 3, and that started the trend of no more good Superman flicks.

I liked Superman III for the Junkyard fight, but the rest...not so much.

Re: Worst Third Superhero Movie

I'm not only old enough to have seen all three on their release, I actually did see all three in the cinema.

Superman 3 was basically a no-brainer for me. The others at least showed some respect for their source material and the previous movies in their series. But this was just a silly piss-take, which was inexcusable, given how respectfully and seriously Richard Donner treated the Man of Steel.

Easily Superman III.

Can't wait for there to be enough contenders for a "Worst 4th superhero movie" poll. Between Superman IV and Batman and Robin DC has that one cornered.

Lex Luthor wasn't in the 3rd movie.
It was Robert Vaughn's character.

Exactly. SUPERMAN III is only the film in the series that DOESN'T feature Luthor.

There are many things to criticize about SUPERMAN III, but using Luthor again isn't one of them!

X-Men: Last Stand, because once you jettison a major character because you're super serious angry at the actor who plays him, you're probably better off going with a plot that doesn't integrally involve that character.

I really don't think Film!Cyclops really qualified for the status of "major character" by that point.

^ Sure, I can't really disagree, but that being the case they shouldn't have gone with the Dark Phoenix Saga. Throwing Wolverine into the Cyclops position as the guy who can bring Jean back from the darkness didn't really work.

Re: Worst Third Superhero Movie

Looking at them now, I'd have to say Batman Forever. Yeah Superman III was a huge step down from the previous movies, but it's still got some fun moments in there (and some pretty cool Superman action).

X3 and Spidey 3 have their share of good moments too.

Batman Forever on the other hand, is just painfully dated and cheesy and unfunny. I might have liked it at the time, but it does nothing but make me cringe now.
