Exact quote from my husband: "There are so many superhero movies that didn't do well at the box office that you will need to tape my mouth so I will stop talking about them." I watch a lot of films but between the two us, I fade into nothingness by the sheer amount of movies that my husband already devoured. Growing up with comic books as his main reading materials, he holds an incredibly massive memory of all superhero characters and the movies that attempted to bring them to life on the silver screen. Here are seven superhero movies that didn't do well at the box office, which I compiled with him:
Has anybody in this generation seen this movie? I didn't until my movie buff of a husband told me about it. Based on the DC comics character John Henry Irons (and his alter-ego, Steel), this 1997 film starring Shaquille O'Neal is a heartbreaker because everything crashed down with bad timing, bad acting, and bad script. Budget? $16 million, but it was only able to generate $1.7 million, making it one of the superhero movies that didn't do well at the box office.
