An acquaintance of mine at Toho Kingdom, Patrick Galvan, wrote a really excellent article on Godzilla directors who weren't big fans or self-depreciating (in Jun Fukuda's case). In a time where everyone is hopes a selected director is a "fan" of any given material, especially after the damage Emmerich and Devlin inflicted in 1998, it's a nice change of pace to have Patrick write this excellent piece. Worth your time:

Thank god someone highlighted that being a fan and making a movie of your franchise that is good doesn't always work. It'd be interesting to look at the inverse of this article and look at directors that were fans but made subpar movies.

Mileage may vary, but as far as director-fans who have made subpar or outright terrible movies of franchises they love:
Peter Jackson - King Kong '05, The Hobbit
David Goyer - Blade: Trinity
Masaaki Tezuka - Godzilla x Megaguirus
Zack Snyder - DCEU
Paul W.S. Anderson - Alien vs. Predator
M. Night Shyamalan - Avatar: The Last Airbender
Bryan Singer - Superman Returns

Oh god if we're throwing western  directors into it the list gets too big, especially since now it seems a lot of them that get attached to franchises just say they love them or were always fans.
