A superhero movie isn’t just about the action sequels, special effects, and costumes. Yes, these aspects matter a lot too. However, there’s something that makes or breaks the movie. That is, the storyline and the ending! If the movie is interesting and full of action throughout but screws the ending? It’s over for the movie altogether. Therefore, movie endings play a very important role. So, here’s a list of the worst superhero movie endings of all time that ruined the movies. Check it out! Which movie ending frustrated you the most? Let us know in the comments!
1. Iron Man 2
Tony Stark a.k.a Iron Man was the beginning. It was where it all started. So, his movies were always looked upon. But Iron Man 2’s ending was something that didn’t fit well. Even though Iron Man had two villains to tackle in the film, the ending wasn’t fancy at all. We all thought the way they portrayed Whiplash throughout the movie, the ending battle would be a blast. But, it was nothing like that. Overall, the movie did well. But if the ending would have been a little more exciting, we think things would have been different!
The whole movie was good, it was decent. However, it was the ending that wasn’t right. It was sort of messed up. Elektra died the first time she wore her uniform. More than tragic, her death was incompetent. In a single 20 minute stretch, there are fights between Kingpin, Elektra, and Bullseye. Moreover, the last few minutes are devoted to setting up a sequel that won’t ever happen! So, all in all, the climax isn’t impressive.
3. The Amazing Spider-Man
The movie was great with Andrew Garfield managing to channelize his powers, take revenge for Uncle Ben’s death, and fall in love with Gwen Stacy. In the end, while Gwen’s father was dying an unfortunate death, he asked Peter to keep Gwen away from the danger and this life. To this, Peter agreed. For a few days, he stayed away from her. But what after that? He broke his promise that eventually led to Gwen Stacy’s death in the sequel.
4. The Dark Knight Rises
This movie is one perfect example of how a terrible ending can destroy the whole movie. Fans were excited to see Talia Al Ghul on screen. However, she reveals in the end that Bane was just a pawn in her plan makes it very disappointing for the fans to watch. Bane was such a powerful character throughout the movie, but towards the end, everything was undone. The ending isn’t great for Batman either.
5. Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice
The makers tried to do so much in one single movie that they ended up messing with the climax. They tried introducing the DC Universe, setting up Justice League, establishing Batman as a major character, and putting up a new version of Death of Superman. So much, right? The ending had to be complicated. They should’ve taken one thing at a time, or two.
6. Wonder Woman
This was a great movie in many contexts. It was largely fun and full of hope. The movie looked a bit different than the other movies that were coming out. The movie was smooth until it is revealed that Ares is the villain. The reveal was great, of course. But the fight that started afterward was nothing but a CGI mess. It looked exactly like the endings of Batman V Superman and Man of Steel.
