I think many will say Catwoman (2004) or Batman and Robin (199?) but I'm going to go with an unpopular choice and say Man of Steel.

I really was not impressed by that movie.

FYC:

...There are more, it'll exceed 35 options.


Btw,

Rephrase your question from:
"Which movie from the DC universe do you think is the worst?"

To:
"Which movie based on the DC comics do you think is the worst?"

(Unless, by DC "universe", you mean DC "film industry.")

Thanks.

Question changed and all the suggestions added (except Batman which will be in theatres in 2021). Perhaps you can suggest 3-4 movies so I can get rid of the Superman sequels.

Yes, lol.




=====


Here are some more DC films:


One more honorable mention, I'll leave it up to you to decide:

The Lego Movie (2014) - All of the superheroes in this movie are from the DC comics. This is probably because the distributor of the film is Warner Brothers, which is owned by Time Warner, which also owns DC Comics.
(But I don't personally consider it a DC film, Warner Bros. abused their power, lol.)

The Lego Movies (2014)

I don't believe that The Lego Movie is eligible, it also features characters that are outside DC like Gandalf and Abraham Lincoln.

cinephile , it honestly has too much official legit DC elements used not to count it, I'd say.

I had forgotten about Constantine (2005). (It was profoundly forgettable.)

Surprised to see it has a 7.0 average. I thought it was really, really bad.

Abi, it's interesting how polar opposite some of our opinions get when it comes to DC movies. :)

It's already in the list. I don't think it's that bad. It's at least way better than the suicide squad.

Paok-Kilkis, I sincerely like both movies unironically as something very close to 80's and 90's awesome WTF b-movies plus some of my favorite DC characters.

One more suggestion:

It'd be nice if your re-order your list from the lowest-rated film to the highest-rated film.

Unless you're hoping it to be featured on the homepage.

Thank you.

DC Comics films are, generally speaking, really dissapointing for Me. But I think the worst so fay is Suicide Squad.

FYC:

Superman IV is generally considered one of the worsts, you should probably add it
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen was painfully bad, it may get my vote if you add it.
Swamp Thing may be there for variety

I also think you should delete the LEGO Movies, it has one character based on a DC Superhero, but is otherwise unrelated to the comic books and has no relation to the company. You already have The LEGO Batman movie to cover that.

I don't know why there are movies in the list contain most of the acclaim movies in the world. In my opinion, the list its too subjective if not prejudice. I suggest change the title to be IMDb Poll Member's Worst DC Movie.

The list includes almost every DC movie, of course with all the movies that go straight to video there couldn't be enough place on a 35 choices list.

Also, often the most critically acclaimed movies are the ones that got the most dislike

The movie with the highest rating on the list is The Dark Knight, but this movie also has 29000 1/10 which put it right behind Batman and Robin which has 40000 1/10. 

So to be objective you have to include acclaimed movies like
The Dark Knight Trilogy

Joker
V for Vendetta
etc.
