10 Saddest Comic Book Movie Deaths
Rachel Dawes – The Dark Knight
Instead of taking a character from the comics, Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer decided to make up their own empowering love-interest for Bruce Wayne in their Dark Knight trilogy–Rachel Dawes. Since she was an original character, I had no idea she was going to die! In the midst of an epic movie, Nolan manages to create the origin of an iconic villain while tearing away the last special person in his hero’s life. Genius!…But also very sad.
Rorschach – Watchmen
I’m going to say this plainly–I actually liked Zack Snyder’s Watchmen. Yeah, it was different and directed a bit strangely, but it worked. The actors were mostly decent and it had phenomenal special effects, plus when Rorschach died, that hit me hard. He was my favorite character and his unwillingness to live with the knowledge of the truth behind Dr. Manhattans role in destroying the world’s main cities, he forces the good doctor to vaporize him. I almost screamed like Nite Owl did.
