If you're a fan of comic book movies, you probably watched Wonder Woman 1984 shortly after it hit the HBO Max streaming service on Christmas. And chances are you didn't wait for the reviews to come out. Fans of DC comics adaptations often have a bone to pick with critics, who have been mixed on the various adaptations over the years, and particularly negative when it comes to Warner Bros.' DC Extended Universe series. Indeed, there was a wide range of reactions to the studio's latest offering—but where does it fall on a list of the worst DC Comics movies ever made?

We turned to review aggregator site Metacritic's ranking of DC Comics films. They included nearly every movie based on a DC Comic, provided there were enough reviews to earn the film a Metascore on the site. Here, we're focusing on the lowest rated of the bunch, ranking them from the tepidly received to the total pans. Read on to find out which Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman films the critics hated the most.
