First of all they are not exactly underrated because they are not some of the best in their genre that were overlooked. Second they are not guilty pleasures because they are not that bad, more in the "good/ok" category. Third you can put also those that have heroes from comics that have no superpower or films that have superheroes but are not based on a comic.

Poorly received, for me at least, means that these films have poor critical reception or underperformed/made only it's money back at the BO. No BO hits, no critical darlings :D

My picks are:
- Ang Lee's Hulk
- Constantine
- Jumper
- Push

I know some of those films are bad for some, so it's still a subjective thread

Yeah I really liked Jumper too, I feel it had such rich potential for a series.

Also really enjoyed X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

As Iv mentioned before I think Jumper could be amazing with a reboot. I even liked the original one. But it just seems like it has so much potential!

I chose "superhero films" because is a recognizable genre. In couldn't say "people with superpowers" films (Jumper - teleportation) and "heroes based on comics" films (Constantine). The title shouldn't be that long and confusing :lol: . so basically you can name a film which is based on a comic book or which has people with superpowers (whether is based on a comic or not)
