@Mark Oehler yeah duh why do you think I said that twist can still save it?!

Except for Heath Ledger and Phoenix's portrayals of the Joker all the others have been crap. The reason that they were good was because as well as being talented actors the movies had a great script. Its such a shame to see other talented actors phoning in performances all for the easy money by this I mean not bothering to act at all. We the viewer deserve a lot more than the constant junk that is coming out.

Jessie Eisenburg's performance would have fit much better If he had been playing the Riddler.

and Eisenber's portrayal of Lex Luthor can still be saved if Hollywood decides to twist away that he is actually Edward Nygma in disguise as Lex Luthor. The only problem there is figuring out why.

Look I know I shouldn't be complaining since he only landed on the honerable mentions but Rhino doesn't count because he wasn't the big bad of his perspective movie nor was he marketed to be.

Bane from the Nolan films. A short, skinny dude, with a non scary voice was bad.

Um sorry WHAT!?!? You have Joker on this list but not Ego, Hela, or Malekith from the MCU? Those villains from film making stand point are much worse.
KaosFan11 23 days ago
Ego and Hela? They're arguably some of the better villains to come out of the MCU. How do they deserve to be here?

The Joker from suicide Squad was way worse than BVS' Lex Luthor. I was somewhat tolerant of Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor. What can I say? I like Jesse Eisenberg I like Batman vs Superman And I like Lex Luthor.

Never include an MCU villain as a dishonourable mention on a Worst Villain List!

The avatar movie was an insult to the tv show
awesomenolan234 Month ago
I D argue that it should be enchantress or whatever that CGI partner she had was since Joker wasn’t even the main villain in suicide squad but that movie was shit in all regards anyhow

#1 definitely spot-on!

Watch mojo shows their racism, Gods Of Egypt is NORTH AFRICAN, Mediterranean. Guess what they aren’t black. It’s why when black people claim they are from queens and kings, they are lying. North Africa is Arabic, Mediterranean, and Persian. Look them up. Pretty damn white. Watch Mojo is racist.

I think Sentinel Prime should be replaced with the Fallen. Guy only had 5 minutes of screen time.

Suicide Squad's Enchantress was another horrible portrayal, Cara Delevingne should go to acting school

I do not think that Jessie Eisenberg's portrayal of Lex Luthor was bad.

Actually, Sentinel Prime was probably the best thing about "Dark of the Moon", in no small part thanks to Leonard Nimoy.

I love the Avengers' Infinity Saga so much, I just think that Thor 2 should've given Malekith had a legit reason for his actions the movie would have been so much better. ...But why the hell would you think Loki's helmet is terrible? As, you can tell, I adore it

You are being unfair to Eddie Redmayne in Jupiter Ascending. He is the best thing in that mess of amovie. His performance is really campy and out there, but so is Ian McDiarmid´s Palpatine in the Star Wars prequels. At least he makes the movie watchable :) Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor on the other hand was just totally unnecessary in Batman vs Superman, he is not portraying Lex, maybe some kind of Joker/Riddler/Zuckerberg hybrid, secondly you could just take his character out of the movie and the result would be a better storyline.

Even if Lex Luthor wasn't that good, he had some really good sentences in this movie, like this really relatable one about god in the end. I don't believe in god but this was pretty cool

Me: if you're the worst villain of the decade to me clap your hands 2019 joker: 👏 Me: if your a good villain to me clap your hands Jared Leto joker: 👏

Yeah... I agree with your picks... especially number one. Pretty bad movie but to be the worst character of a extraordinarily bad movie is an amazing achievement in itself.

10. The Charcther should scarier makeup 9. An Egyptian Actor should have play the role. 8. Cast Jet Li or Donnie Yen or Tony Leung Chiu-Wai (The Real Mandarin in the upcoming Marvel Movie, Shang-Chi) or Jiang Wen or Ken Watanabe or Cary Hiroyuki Tagwa as The Fire Lord. 7. Milla Jovawhich need to not play the villian in Hellboy. 6. Sinestro should have been the main villian not Parallax. 5. Eddie Redmayne should have never cast in the first place. 4. Lex Luthor should have been the man villian along with Deathstorke to avoid being too simaliar to the Avengers. Stephenwolf have been in the sequels. 3. Dr. Doom should have seperate origins. 2. Joaquin Phoenix should have play Joker. 1. Jessie Eisenberg should have play the Riddler in the DCEU. Bryan Cranston should have play Luthor. Honourable Mention - Malakeith should have look from the comics. - Sentinel Prime should been the hero and ally to Optimus Prime. - Hugh Jackman get out from Pan. And go back to play Wolverine again (Before Logan). - The Rhino should never appear in TASM 2. The Rhino armor should have never been a Hulkbuster. Paul Giamatti shouldnt be cast as the Rhino he should play Doctor Octopus. - Snoke should never been killed off. Villian that Should been on the List - Enchantress (Sucide Sqaud) - Yellowjacket (Ant-Man) - Electro (The Amazing Spider-Man 2)

Why is it that if rubbish disney screenwriters cant make a villain intimidating they make them either deep voiced or deep voiced and british it's quite Instulting

I thought Eisenberg was an effective villain but that villain just wasn't Lex Luthor. Why they repeatedly refuse to give us the comics version is beyond me. Leto's Joker was worse, that didn't work on any level.

Jesse Eisenberg AND that dude who played the flash (Ezra something whatever) are the absolute worst casting decisions that have ever been made in Hollywood.

The only entry that I disagree with is Ahmanet... because she is the best part of mummy (terrible movie) and because its sofia boutella. I wouldn't have watched the movie in the first place if it hadn't been for her. Replace Ahmanet with Barakapool from Wolvie origins... after all, he is technically a villain in that movie. And Parallax shouldve been number 1 really..

Considering you listed only SHITTY movies, this list is hardly a surprise. What, were you all hungover ?

How the actual fuck did Sentinel Prime wind up on this lists dishonorable mentions? He was a great villain. Well I guess the only reason WatchMojo put him there is because they hate the Transformers movies so damn much...

Not a Bayformers fan, However Sentinel Prime doesn't belong here.

Why the hell is Sentinel Prime on this list? He was literally the most fleshed out villain in the Transformers films. Thats not saying much, but Quintessa from the fifth film could have easly been the one to get the nomination.

Lmao pretty sure he was lex luthor Jr, which he would have been more fitting to the character

Nah ...i agree whit all but the 1 one ...eisenberg has done a insane job on the lex luthor ...he did it ...in my opinion he is perfekt for the role ...he is just the oposite of this video ...he is at least a number 9 on best villans list

you forgot to add electro from amazing spider-man 2, my god he use was such a dumpster fire of a villain and was just as bad as rhino and green goblin, they are all as bad as each other in this dumpster fire of a movie

Justice Leagues problem was that they used the wrong villain they should have used Darkseid like they originally planned but they wanted Darkseid to be a Thanos like character looming in the background and because of this the movie wasn't as entertaining as it should have been

Jafar from the 2019 live-action Alladin movie should've been on this list too in my opinion.

unpopular opinion : eisenberg may not be the lex luthor you need. but he fuckin nailed his role and it was awesome. definitely not the worst retard watchmojo.
GregOrCreg Month ago
When Batman v Superman first went into production, it was rumoured that the filmmakers wanted Lex to be 'Sir Richard Branson meets Brad Pitt'. That would have been perfect. So, what happened? As soon as I heard that Jesse Eisenberg was cast as Luthor, I was out. Others told me to wait and see, Snyder-die-hards even criticised me for being closed-minded, but it seems that all along, I was right. If only the filmmakers had listened to lowly old me. Anyway, the message of this utter failure is that in order to make a memorable villain, you need to differentiate your villain from others. Luthor should be a formidable, bullying, alpha-male type businessman (less Zuckerberg, and more Trump, albeit smarter). Not a Riddler or Joker clone, and certainly not a weedy, cackling, cry-baby Riddler or Joker clone (you're pitting a nerdy cry-baby against the most powerful hero on Earth?!?) Hopefully, future comic-book movie filmmakers will pay attention although I have my concerns (the next Wonder Woman's Cheetah gives me too many Selina Kyle in Batman Returns vibes, and I'm not yet 100% on board with the handsome and tallish Colin Farrell playing the short and homely Penguin).

Jared letos joker being on the list above the dancing enchantress is unfair. If she was the main villain then it's not letos fault that the joker was underwhelming and she had less impact than he did. Also in my unpopular opinion I loved the joker, he was one of the best parts of the film for me whenever he was on screen he just needed more screen time

Suicide Squad Enchantress Cara Delevingne.

I cant help but smile at seeing Snoke be on the worst villains list. Although, I'd have a joker grin if kylo ren was here too.

I think that the failure of Lex Luther was more of the writer’s fault. If the character’s pissing in jars that’s not the actors fault. But the performance was still pretty bad.
