9. Halle Berry

The anticipation behind Catwoman was huge, not only was it a standalone female superhero film, it was lead by one of the highest regarded actresses in the industry, Halle Berry. Unfortunately the film was a bust, hated by critics and fans alike, which resulted in Berry being awarded the Razzie award in 2004 for Worst Actress. Berry did not hold back during her acceptance speech, stating, “I want to thank Warner Bros. for casting me in this piece-of-sh-t, god-awful movie. It was just what my career needed — I was at the top, now I’m at the bottom.” She even dragged her co-stars down with her, adding, “I’d like to thank the rest of the cast. To give a really bad performance like mine, you need to have really bad actors.”

8. George Clooney

Another superhero film gone awry was 1997’s Batman & Robin. For nearly twenty years since, the star George Clooney has constantly apologized for the film which has come under endless scrutiny for its script and its cheesiness. When explaining his excitement over taking the role and being Batman, Clooney said, “I just thought the last one had been successful so I thought I was just going to be in a big successful franchise movie. I think we might have killed the franchise.” Killed the franchise it did, as no one took a chance on the hero until eight years later with Batman Begins.
