There are server Movies based on comic books, to many for me to list. What I want to know is who or what was your biggest disappointment when the translation from comic to real life. Was it Ben Affleck as DareDevil, Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy or was it the way a movie got twisted and lost the story.

Believe it or not probably either Spider-man or X-men for me.
I had high hopes for both and they just lacked too much.
 
Spider-man lacked the humour and the plot in general was just by the numbers.
X-men started well but fell apart as it went on. The exact moment it fell apart was when Wolverine hit the turbo button on the motor cycle. It was just down hill from there. I totally hated Magneto's ultimate plan. I don't think it was somethign Magneto would've done.
 
Never quite understood peoples issues with Daredevil though. I really kinda liked that. As a movie it kinda stands on it's own. Didn't feel too far removed from the comics either.

Really? I thought it was exactly something like Magneto would've done. Make a bunch of higher-up government officials in the world into mutants means either significant improvement for mutantkind or bad things happening to humanity.
 
Then again, I haven't read an X-Men story, in, like, god, many many years so I'm out of touch.

I actually don't really have a disappointment. I guess my biggest would be Origins: Wolverine, since that was a pretty awful movie and I hoped it would be good but it wasn't. But I really expected it to be terrible, and expectations override, like, hope so it doesn't really count.
 
Goddamn it.

It's not the mentality of someone like Magneto.
He'd rather kill huamns than raise them up to his level be mutants. He does tend to hold mutants in fairly high regard though and he was willing to risk Rogues life to turn humans to mutants. The whole idea of it spoilt the movie for me. It started out as a strong sci fi idea and then here's this big silly machine and he's gonna turn every one into mutants? Why not just burst in there and slaughter the world leaders and announce himself and the brohterhood in charge? I'd have bought into that more.

Oh, I completely agree, which was why Ghost Rider was total trash for me. I just really liked X-Men. I loved X2 and X3 was tolerable. I mean, I guess it's since I'm more of a casual X fan so I can't pinpoint things like out of character acting or whatever or maybe it doesn't mean as much to me as most people do. I'm generally really forgiving with adaptations. I dunno.

Daredevil sucked big time.
I guess Batman & Robin was also terrible.
Spider-Man 3 wasn´t nice.
The worst of all was Elektra.

The only X-Men film I was disappointed in was X-Men Origins: Wolverine. I like the whole trilogy with X2 being the best one. I did not like Spider-Man 3, any of the Batman movies prior to Nolan taking over, any Superman movie after the first one by Donner, either Fantastic Four film (although the second one is better than the first), either Punisher film, Watchmen, Catwoman, Elektra, or Ghost Rider. I liked the director's cut of Daredevil but not really the original version. I didn't mind the first Hulk but I thought the reboot was better. And that's about it.

@Icon: what u didnt like tim burton's batman???? wow  i personally think those 2 were the best batman movies made... it was the perfect mix of realism and comic universe mixed into one .... the nolan's movie kinda limits its self a little to much cause of its realistic setting... things like bane and and clayface could never be done in a nolan film... which i think is a shame

The only one that REALLY pissed me off was Venom. I just kind of shrugged off every other non-faithful movie character.

I never did either, I'm not like the biggest DD fan, but I never saw anything wrong with the movie and thought it was really close to the comics for a movie that old (for superhero movies anyway), I think it was more of who the actors and actresses were that people didn't like.
 
For me I'd have to go with X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the only thing good about the movie was Hugh Jackman and how great of a Wolverine he is.

@Gylan Thomas: Really? :p Maybe I should then.  
 
@oiHooliganismoi: The Burton films really didn't feel like the comic much to me. The changes to the characters were just so drastic or campy, especially Catwoman and the Penguin. I didn't even understand why she became Catwoman in that movie to begin with. She was this weak and docile lady at the beginning of the film who her boss later tries to kill, and that causes her to suddenly snap and become a cat obsessed burglar who has inexplicably mastered the use of a whip as well as hand to hand combat. It's so out of left field. And the whole mystical nine lives thing where she can't die was just too over the top for me. Michelle Pfeiffer was awesome in the role though. :] I guess to each their own but I much prefer the Nolan films.

I thought Daredevil was okay as long as you separated it from the comic.
Probably my biggest was X-Men Origins: Wolverine, specifically Deadpool, although it all kind of sucked.

How could they possibly get that idea out of someone dubbed the Merc with a Mouth?! And I was watching TV Guide and they were at the premiere and they didn't even get the nickname right! They called him the Merc with a Smirk or somethin' stupid like that.
