I've seen the Power Rangers movie, my hopes are not high for this one since it's the same writer. But I do suddenly have a craving for maple syrup and back bacon.

Canada has a super hero, he's called Superman

Is that a bulge in his tights, or is he just happy to be Canadian?

They want Ryan Gosling to be Captain Canuck lolz
 
2012-07-20 01:53:13 AM
Will he be played by Dave Thomas or Rick Moranis?

I think he's happy to see us and he's happy to be Canadian, back away slowly he's got syrup.

I picked up a Captain Canuck somewhere when I was a kid, (Northern MN) Iiked it enough, but never saw another issue.

Anyways, for a preview of what this movie might look like, read the first story in the link. Don't let the Tim Burr pen name fool you, it's written and drawn by the quite insane Fletcher Hanks

There are some potentially NSFW images, specifically WW2 comic-book stye racist stuff on the cover.

"CAPTAIN CANUCK is not only a Canadian icon but an internationally recognized superhero," said Minds Eye Entertainment CEO Kevin DeWalt.

Canada superhero thread?

I have no knowledge of the character himself, so his abilities/powers might be cool, but what a stupid farking premise for a superhero.

ontariolightning: Canada has a super hero, he's called Superman


Oh, Canada, you are adorable. Keep on thinking that.

/one of Superman's co-creators was Canadian born but US raised. He had dual citizenship. The other one was American.

Arne Olsen who is an American Film Institute graduate and PRAXIS mentor, has had 12 movies produced including MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS:THE MOVIE for 20TH Century Fox, COP AND A HALF for Universal, ALL DOGS GO TO HEAVEN II for MGM and RED SCORPION for Shapiro/Glickenhaus. He sold the pitch RAPID FIRE to Universal and the spec horror-comedy DRAKE DIAMOND:EXORCIST FOR HIRE to Warners. He wrote and directed HERE'S TO LIFE, which was nominated for 9 Genies, winning one. He wrote the pilot ESCAPE FROM ATLANTIS for Starz/Encore as well as an episode of RELIC HUNTER. In 2011, he was nominated for a best screenplay LEO for the TIFF special presentation, REPEATERS, directed by Carl Bessai.

Quite the impressive resume there.

As a Canadian, and fan of Captain Canuck... This is farking stupid. It's an obvious rip off of Cpt America and simply won't be taken seriously in the international box office. All it's going to do is make the idea of a Canadian super hero even more ridiculous than it already is.

I'd rather see an Alpha Flight movie. At least you could tie in a cameo from Wolverine.

So this guy's Canadian; unreally muscular; presumably faster than most any human.

Ben Johnson?

I remember thinking the Comely issues from the 70s were pretty good but I'm not optimistic about the movie.

I prefer the name Johnny Canuck. No one here is named John any more, so he would have to be Vaguely Biblical Name Canuck, if not Taylor Tyler Tucker Canuck.

This far into the thread and no mention of Canada's greatest heroes?

Seriously, though, I'd like the US and Canada to come to some sort of treaty on which two fictional characters get mentioned online when the countries are brought up. For Canada, it'd probably be Bob and Doug. I'm not sure who it'd be for the US, but as an American, I'd feel cheated if one of the two characters wasn't Jeff Spicoli.

He'd be named Wayne, Bobby, or Sid.

Peggy? Nah. Al Bundy and Jeff Spicoli, though...

I see the four of them (Bob, Doug, Jeff, Al) being put in paintings that express the intertwined history of the two countries... like those characters leading the charge on Normandy.
