  1. I like Arnold Schwarzenegger as mr freeze I don’t understand why people don’t after all he was the terminator

  2. Sorry but Jim Carrey Riddler was a villian masterpiece. And Rhino was outstanding.

  3. You have to do another list to includ Sandra Hess as Andrea von Strucker in « Nick Fury : Agent of SHIELD ». There´s absolutely no part of the scenery she has not chew.^^

  4. Yeah right… Jesse Eisenberg would be better if he was Riddler rather than Lex Lutor… Poor casting

  5. Jessie Eisenber was Lex Jr not Lex. Pick up a comic

  6. Wow it's like they hate spider man

  7. Go ahead and call me crazy but Jessie Eisenberg's Lex Luthors' "Now God is good as dead." line always creeped me out.

  8. Mr Freeze is the coolest character ever

  9. Joker needs a good writing. No one can save this character if the writing is good awful. Blaming the actor is crazy

  10. The top "over the top" acting by a VILLAIN in the 3 Spiderman movies was…. M.J.

  11. Yuck yucky yuck The worst Lex Luthor performance ever Jesse Eisenberg failed in so many ways its just bad sad an awful I'd rather have the actor from Smallvill series whom
    delivered an awesome Lex Luthor but noo they gave us crap

  12. First green Goblin Willem Dafeo did his role epic so put simply shut up

  13. Eewwww wow ok Joker Jared Leto yuck gross he was the worst Joker ever big let down
    Just bad if he was tryin to compete with past jokers he FAILED

  14. Colin Farrell an Ben Affleck did their roles justice in DareDevil

  15. Over the top my butt man of steel was awesome Michael Shannon as Zod was epic I loved the hole cast

  16. Jamie Foxx did Electro justice its the other actor whom played Harry Osbarn that I'm not fond of he was bad

  17. Arnold Schwarzenegger. Jim Carrey. Tommy Lee Jones. Could of done their roles
    epic had the makers not screwed up badly

  18. Schwarzenegger had no acting experience before that movie. Also, notice how no MCU villains made the list, but 6 DC villains did, and half were part of the DCU. Proof that Marvel is better.

  19. That was the dumbest Lex Luthor that I have seen. At first, I thought it was The Riddler.

  20. Oscar issac as Apocalypse in x men Apocalypse

  21. good list but, William Dafoe was perfect fro green goblin and that goes for Jim Carrey as riddler and Michael Shannon as Zod

  22. That screenshot is creepy!!!

  23. DC villians are WAY better than Marvel's. Except for Green Goblin. Which was played brilliantly by one of the best actors alive.

    But the list does points out that the performamces aren't necesarly not enjoyable, so I'll take the over the top to Jim Carey and Defoe As a compliment to their portrayals as super villians!

    Plus: Jim Carey is always over the top. It is just that is a good over the top. 😁

  24. I hate it all of the terrible ice puns in Batman and Robin.

  25. I want to be surprised Willem Dafoe is it playing The Joker one of these days.

  26. I’m just going to say this: these actors make these super villains look bad…………….and in a good way too!!!!!!!!

  27. DC has a very crazy emotional mind villain.

  28. My ranking :
    10. Paul Giamatti as Rhino
    9. Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy
    8. Peter Sarsgard as Hector Hammond
    7. Michael Shannon as General Zod
    6. Jared Leto As The Joker
    5. Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor
    4. Colin Farrel as Bullseye
    3. Willam DaFoe as Green Goblin
    2. Jim Carrey as The Riddler
    1. Arnold Scwarzengger as Mr Freeze

  29. I remember when everyone was like… and Jim is the Joker! NO WAY!

    LA is just lame. Only miss the weather

  30. One guy in the theater was a big Poison Ivy fanboy. Insisted that SHE should get more puns.

    I suddenly realized his deal. You've heard of an audience plant?

  31. B&R gets so much hate. Why, exactly? I mean; anyone can see that the villain makes it exceptionally cool.

    It may not have hit but, as filmmaking efforts go, it was an ice try.

  32. I just love some of these movies

  33. Jack Nicholson as the Joker was great over the top.

  34. Wait a minute…Where's Heath Ledger as The Joker.

  35. He was clearly portraying the Mad Hatter.

  36. Sigh, "Green Lantern" is by no means a great film, but it's not as bad as most people make it out to be. It's still better than about half of the movies that did make it into the DC Cinematic Universe. Seriously, would you rather rewatch "Green Lantern" or "Suicide Squad"?

  37. Willem Dafoe's performance remains legendary!

  38. If you people seriously think Michael is over the top then what does that exactly make Terence stamp then?

  39. 📽️🎥🎞️📼📀💿💽💾🎶🎵🎼🎟️🍿🌭🍔🍦🍨🍫🍬

  40. You gotta love movies with snacks🍿🍬🍫🌭

  41. Jesse Eisenberg was GOD AWFUL as Lex Luthor

  42. What are you even talking about? Jared Leto as Joker was just amazing!

  43. An ice pick for #1.

  44. Ummm Jim Carrey was great as the Riddler. The rest of the movie was pure trash though
