10 Worst Live-Action Superhero Fights In Cinema History

With the Marvel Cinematic Universe one of the most financially successful and critically acclaimed franchises of all time, it's safe to say that not only do superhero movies now get massive budgets, but they're picked over with a fine-toothed comb before and after release.

You'd think that this would mean they'd be flawless pieces of cinema, with just the right blend of drama, action and skin-tight bodysuits, but often, it just isn't true.

Sometimes the issue with these big battles is the over-use of CGI, spoiling the immersion of the movie as we watch two computerised monsters do battle. Think Hulk vs. Abomination in the early days of the MCU or, even worse, the climactic fight scene of 2018's Venom, where we watched a mass of wrestling tentacles for several minutes.

It's even worse when computers can't be blamed. Some of the worst fight scenes are those acted out by real humans - the very same ones trying to convince us of just how "super" they are.
