    Hulk vs. Abomination. They should make this movie like the Underworld Movies. Little story, Lots of action.

    Well, I can't deny that Arad seems to know what he's doing, but something about the guy just bugs the crap out of me.

    He's right though. Elecktra is probably the only truely horrible comic book movie I've seen. Well, that and Batman and Robin.

    Have you seen Man-Thing? I'm with holding the crown of worst CB movie ever from Elektra until I can track down a copy of Man-Thing.

    So is the Shang Chi movie under the new marvel arrangement or is it being developed by another studio? That one intrests me the most especially if Woo Ping Yuen is still attached to it. Gordon Liu should definetly play Fu Manchu. His credits? Liu was the protagonist of Master Killer/36th chamber Shaolin(US), he played the bald mid boss of the crazy 88s, and Pei Mei in the Kill Bill saga.

    Howard the Duck still holds the crown, if for no other reason than George Lucas' decision to show nipples on a female duck to be "sexy".

    Then you've got:
    The Punisher (the original)
    Superman III
    Superman IV
    Supergirl
    Batman Returns
    Batman Forever
    Batman & Robin
    Catwoman
    Swamp Thing
    Return of Swamp Thing
    Captain America (both the 90s movie AND the two 70s TV movies AND the 1940s serial)
    Doctor Strange
    Corben's Fantastic Four
    The aborted Justice League of America TV movie

    And then you have the just plain mediocre CB flicks:
    The Punisher (new one)
    Daredevil
    The Hulk
    Fantastic Four
    Constantine

    It's a miracle they keep making comic based movies with the track record of bad movies they have inspired to date.

    I feel that way to. When ever I see him in interview he just gives off this weird vibe that rubs me the wrong way. Even if I like what he’s saying. Just something about the guy.
    Some of the other moves you listed sucked WAY harder then Howard the Duck. Howard was just way over hyped.

    Neither Punisher movie was anything to rave about either. The critics went way too easy on the Tom Jane version I thought.

    I know I'm in the minority here, but I actually felt that the Punisher and Daredevil movies (the most recent ones, of course) were the best of the Marvel films in terms of capturing the overall spirit of the comic books. IMHO, I felt as if they were as close to the comic as you're going to get. Let the bashing begin.
