Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is officially Certified Fresh! Ahead of the film s release, stars Shameik Moore and Jake Johnson stopped by Rotten Tomatoes for an extended chat with RT Senior Editor Grae Drake. They talked about how happy they were with the overwhelmingly positive response the film has gotten so far, what representation in a movie like this means, why recording scenes together was key, and why Stan Lee s ideas were so revolutionary. Plus, they muse about a Spider-Man Noir spinoff and talk about Johnson s burning desire to fly to Vegas to record with Nic Cage.

It s the worst superhero movies ever, an infamous league of Rotten films that scored less than 30% on the Tomatometer!First off, to keep this list spandex-tight, not only did we include superhero movies below 30%, but each had to have at least 20 reviews, guaranteeing enough critics witnessed of these erratic efforts, franchise non-starters, and would-be blockbusters.After looking through the list, if you re wondering why you didn t see the 1990 Captain America movie, a bunch of those sequels to The Crow, or Dolph Lundgren s The Punisher, they were cut out by not accumulating at least 20 critics reviews. But, don t worry, still plenty of room for Frank in this castle of decrepitude, as the other two Punisher movies, the Thomas Jane one and War Zone, are represented. In fact, they both even currently have the same score at 29%, just squeezing into the list. And while most Audience Scores are in the same realm as its movie s Tomatometer, there s a divergence on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Dark Phoenix: Both Rotten movies according to the critics, but which settled above 60% on the Audience Score.Nic Cage appears twice on this list because they made two Ghost Rider movies. Ryan Reynolds also shows up twice but in two separate franchises, mucking it up in both houses of Marvel and DC via Blade: Trinity and Green Lantern. And because who doesn t like a comic book showdown, in the battle of Marvel vs DC over who s made the most worst superhero movies, Marvel is triumphant with 10 listings, and DC at 9. We didn t count The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, the movie so bad it made Sean Connery quit acting, because though it was at the time produced at an imprint of an imprint of DC Comics (it s imprint-ception, people), the comic was always wholly owned by its creator Alan Moore.Of course, let s not count out other labels making special appearances, like 2000 A.D. (Judge Dredd) or Image (Spawn). Then there s the magic that happens when when Hollywood executives come together to create something that didn t come from a comic book, with sparkling results like Tim Allen s Zoom, an adaptation of TV cartoon Underdog, and the toy-based Max Steel.One last thing: For movies with the same Tomatometer scores, whichever had more reviews was placed higher. Now, come take a flying leap as we rank the worst superhero movies of all time!(And see a movie here you love and think Rotten Tomatoes Is Wrong ?
