2011 Comic Book Movie Winners and Losers

2011 was a decent year for comic book movies.  The majority were decent, but there are none that go down in my mind as “classics.”  Below is a breakdown as to which were this year’s winners and losers.  All data is from BoxOfficeMojo.  Keep in mind, The Adventures of Tintin is currently still running in theaters and only recently came out in the United States.
