FirstNationalBastard: verbaltoxin: First, Jonah Hex was a miserable failure pile made from design by committee. We deserve a better kind of comic book Western than that piece of sh*t.

Second I wouldn't adapt any Marvel series from the last 20 years as it is all basically crap fan fiction and retcons.

FTFY.


Yes, DC isn't much better. You'd have to go way back and be pretty picky to find a good, adaptable DC series. Nolan basically did that by making a pastiche out of Year One, Long Halloween and Killing Joke.

DC was much better until Didiot and Geoff "I can't stand it when characters aren't exactly like they were when I was 12 and all my ideas come from Alan Moore's wastebasket!" Johns took over.

From the late 90s, DC had stuff like Resurrection Man, which would make for a good movie or TV series even without involving the mainstream DC Characters. Chase would play well in the DC Animated universe. the 2003. HERO series would, likewise, make for a good anthology TV show. And Hitman...

But, as has always been DC's problem, with comics and movies... if it doesn't have an S or a Bat on it, they're hesitant to do anything with it, and fans usually only stick with the stuff from one of the two major franchises.

frepnog: The_EliteOne: FirstNationalBastard: I say fark DC and Marvel, more indie comics need to be movies.

A Goon movie, for example... there are zombies! Zombies are hot right now! That's the foot in the door!

Or Empowered! Who wouldn't like an Empowered movie starring as thick blonde who gets tied up and has her suit shredded to bits every other scene?

We tried that with Scott Pilgrim. The world wasn't ready.

No, Scott Pilgrim's real problem was Michael Cera. Scott Pilgrim came out after his expiration date. They even tried to hide him on the movie posters. The movie itself is actually pretty ok... but Cera just sucks all the energy out of the role because "awkward douchebag" didn't work well in the role. Cera needed to become Scott Pilgrim for that movie and what we got was .... Michael Cera reading his lines again.


Cera was awesome as Scott Pilgrim. Scott is not a cool awesome dude, he's a man-child, awkward nerd. Also, Cera did a lot of the (non-insane) fighting sequences himself. He committed for the part.

/awesome film.

They picked the wrong Green Lantern for the movie. They picked the one that only a vocal minority of obsessed fanboys ever gave a damn about instead of the more popular ones that had the misfortune of not being the pet characters of the head fanwanker in charge.

If you were an animated DC fan, John Stewart was your lantern. He also has the more interesting history, from blowing up a planet to going all Hawkeye "It's not a chicken, it's a baaayyyybbbyyyyyeeee" over his sister.

Guy Gardner? Hell, everyone liked Guy. Now Guy as GL would have made for a fun popcorn flick with tits, explosions, and exploding tits.

Kyle Rayner? Would have made for a more interesting, identifiable everyman GL. Plus, women in fridges would have gotten the movie talked about.

But who did they pick? Bland, characterless, "I AM DUH MOST FEERLESS AND DAT IS ALL I BE!" Hal Jordan. A Character who, like Barry Allen, was only ever good when he was dead.

Further second tier characters that would work, especially in alternate geographies/timelines without interfering with the "current" time line in the Marvelverse.

Micronaughts, Moon Knight (the original Marc Spector mercenary with Bushman) and possibly ROM Space Knight. The last one I just couldn't get into in the comics but if someone scripted it out and spent millions of dollars to make it I would download it from Netflix in a couple years...

The Stealth Hippopotamus: Mugato: The Stealth Hippopotamus: RDJ could get the first ever acting Oscar for a comic book movie.

"What am I, chopped liver? I may have the same consistency now but still"

[resources1.news.com.au image 316x237]

I'm sorry but he got that Oscar for dying. Yes he should have gotten it for a host of other rolls but The Joker was his last one. And a weeping widow to accept the award?!! How could the Academy pass that up?!

I remember talking about getting Raul Julia a posthumous Oscar. Too bad his final movie was Street Fighter! Could you imagine?


What are you smoking? He would have won that award if he was alive too. That was one of the best performances I have ever watched in a movie.

You have to admit that O-Face Norman and his twins was a horrible story. Even the original idea of having Spidey be the father wasn't too great.

Otherwise, yeah, the JMS run on Spider-Man was probably the best since Roger Stern and Dave Micheline were working on the book in the 80s (as long as you leave out the One More Day story Joey Q shiat out at the end of the run).

I have no emotional investment in Ledger winning the Oscar whether he was dead or alive. I couldn't care less how dead or alive they are, his was the best performance.

Starman. That would be an awesome movie.

"His father was a legend" (see 40's style Superhero flying past in red and green, holding a gold baton, the Cosmic Rod, that gives him flight, shooting rays from it at bank robbers)
"He rejected the burdens of heroism." (obligatory father-son screaming match between an elderly version of the hero and his son, a black-haired, goateed hipster-type)
"But old hatred lingers on." (The Mist and his family shown)
(Scenes of the attack, Jack flying away from danger with a Cosmic Rod)
"This Summer, sides will change" (see The Shade, using his shadow powers)
"and an unlikely hero will rise." (him gearing up in the leather jacket, goggles, the Star pin, and the Cosmic Staff [yes this is a cheat - he never used the cosmic staff in 'Sins of the Father'])
"Starman"
Ted Knight: "Jack, my boy... Please... come back"
Jack Knight: "Don't worry dad, I won't let you down. Ever again."
(comes flying out of an exploding clock tower like in issue 6)

It'd be fun, there's tons of hooks you can ignore (eg David - that'd be hard to explain) or use (the Art-Deco look). Hell, film the thing in New Orleans, I bet they'd love some major movie money.

You'd have to condense the first arc and the Grand Guignol into one movie, but it'd end up pretty solid. They'd probably take out the stuff about the Shadow Midget and just let the the Mist be the main villain.

i'd like to see marvel follow the same route they seem to be taking with their animated films division, like planet hulk and the hulk vs movies. nicely done, succinct and self contained storylines that don't need to be 1/3 origin story or exposition 'setting characters up' marvel needs to buck this hollywood idea that audiences are stupid and need everything spelled out for them. they have 60+ years of exposition and character development that-get this-people can BUY if they really want to know more about characters or stories. as a comic fan, i can live with lower budget productions that are truer to canon more easily than writers/producers/directors farking with web-shooters, etc to dumb down or insert their unnecessary creative license on long established properties

Fano: theorellior: Nemo's Brother: or Bat Man reboots (you know they will come after this last one).

As someone who hates the Nolan Batman series of films, a reboot would be most welcome.

www.coronacomingattractions.com

Maybe if Bruce Wayne was younger... hipper... somebody the audience could relate to...


That makes me sad. Not because someone thought to do it with Batman, but because Marvel Studios eventually DID do it with the new Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon (which is actually not about Ultimate Spider-Man, but a different Spider-Man in a universe that is sadly not the same as the Marvel Animation Universe).

I am the biggest life-long Spider-Man fan ever (though not obsessive. I don't have Spider-Man sheets or anything), and even I openly dislike (possibly loathe) the new Ultimate Spider-Man animated series.

It's such a disappointment that I actually wish Sony had kept the TV rights to Spider-Man.

Can it be that bad? I mean the Batman animated series from the 90's was actually pretty good in my recollection, it was dark yet kid friendly. I don't remember the last Spiderman cartoon series that well but I do remember being upset that the X-Men animated series seemed to only have 12-20 episodes that they repeated out of order for several years.

ROM is overdue for his time on the big screen.


Unfortunately, it won't happen.

Here's the thing: Marvel owns the rights to Spaceknights. They own the rights to Galador. They own the rights to The Neutralizer. They own the rights to Dire Wraiths. They own the rights to every single Spaceknight that existed...

Except Rom.

Marvel does NOT own any rights to Rom. They can't use his image, his name, or his story. If they use the Spaceknights, they need to avoid discussing "Rom" completely, even in past-tense, because Parker Bros. owns Rom lock, stock, and barrel.

Marvel has been putting little bits of Spaceknight lore into their comics. Just recently there was a dire wraith in the Avengers Academy comic, for example. They just have to avoid Rom.

Strangely enough, Marvel doesn't have the right to Rom's armored form or name, but they do have the right to his likeness when unarmored, and they can call him anything but Rom. They have gotten away with referring to him as "the greatest of the Spaceknights", but their primary method has been to refer to the greatest Spaceknight as being dead/in Limbo, and using others.

Doesn't Hasbro own the rights to ROM?

If so, I don't see why Hasbro doesn't team up with Marvel to do a proper ROM cartoon. Hasbro's network, The Hub, already airs an Avengers cartoon, and a bunch of other superhero shows. Plus, they seem to be in the process of ending their shows that have reached the magic syndication number of 65 episodes (Don't take away the Ponies! Noooooo!).

Rom could, logically, be a new property for them. And if teamed with Marvel, they already have the blueprint for the show in the 70 or 80 issues already written.

I don't see it happening. The problem is that Rom is seen as a "loser" product. Parker Bros. actually didn't sell a lot of Rom toys. The comic was more popular than the toy, and lasted much longer. Parker Bros. was bought by Hasbro, as I understand it, and even then they didn't want to mess with Rom because they believed their market research showed Rom wasn't popular with kids.

The fans of Rom are all adults who would only buy special edition action figures statuettes, if they bought any toys at all. Kids aren't interested in Rom, apparently.

So the bottom line is: If you like Rom, you're old.

FirstNationalBastard: Braindeath: Oh and Young Avengers movie, thanks.

I was about to say that's impossible because YA is so rooted in Avengers history, but there is an Avengers movie coming out, isn't there?

But, all the major characters would have to be introduced... Kang would have to show up, Scarlet Witch would have to have her unholy Vision babies...


I know but they're my favorite and EMH should have everyone caught by the end of season two. It would also be a good excuse for Marvel to take all of their stuff back so Magneto can come around.

Sony has to make Spider-Man and X-Men movies or the rights revert back to Marvel aka Disney. DC has to make Superman movies or they lose the rights all together to the family of the original creator. The last Batman movie made a billion dollars, so...

PonceAlyosha: ZeroCorpse: antidisestablishmentarianism: ZeroCorpse: Here's your answer:

WTF is that? Chibi Spiderman?

Chibi Spider-Man. Yes.

Frequently. With lots more "gags" and 4th-wall-breaking. It's horrible.

That's horrifying. Young Justice, on the other hand, is extremely farking awesome.


This week's episode was f♥cking top-shelf. One of the best episodes of any superhero animated show I've ever seen. They resolved several long-running subplots in one great story, and they continue to make the villains as interesting as the heroes. Superboy's all-out Superman-style attack against Blockbuster was completely kick-ass. It's too bad DC comics aren't currently as good as DC animation.

/I can't say I loved The Riddler's voice, though.
//Klarion the Witch-Boy's voice cracks me up.

No, DC is probably going to lose the copyright to Superman no matter what. They just have a certain timeframe in which to pump out one more movie to profit off of before the reversion happens.

/also, calling the heirs "family" is stretching things quite a bit, and to be honest, the heirs' lawyer will wind up getting a huge chunk of the character.

The whole series is what the new DC 52 should have been. I started watching the early episodes again in anticipation for next week's finale. I noticed Megan's secret was revealed during her mind meld with Conner during the Bialya episode.

Pharmdawg: Sorry I'm out of touch, but what was wrong with Norton's Hulk?


From what I understand, Norton. There was nothing wrong with the performance - it's an underrated film.

I actually like the fact that Zatanna's part of YJ instead of the JL.

antidisestablishmentarianism: ZeroCorpse: I am the biggest life-long Spider-Man fan ever (though not obsessive. I don't have Spider-Man sheets or anything), and even I openly dislike (possibly loathe) the new Ultimate Spider-Man animated series.

It's such a disappointment that I actually wish Sony had kept the TV rights to Spider-Man.

Can it be that bad? I mean the Batman animated series from the 90's was actually pretty good in my recollection, it was dark yet kid friendly. I don't remember the last Spiderman cartoon series that well but I do remember being upset that the X-Men animated series seemed to only have 12-20 episodes that they repeated out of order for several years.

/Wiki says there were 76 episodes
//seemed like much less


Ultimate Spider-Man is godawful. Worst thing I've watched in years. Iron Fist, Spider-Man, Luke Cage, Harry Osborn, White Tiger and Nova all go to high school together, and Agent Coulson becomes the principal of the school.
