Superman and Batman should be the top of the list.

With Superman, every damn movie is another origin, and his only villain is Lex Luthor.

And Batman has already had, what, a dozen movies already?

I love how he bases his opinion with Aquaman and Wonder Woman on the crappy ways they've been portrayed before, like "You had your chance, but the previous guy decided to make you look stupid, so you're not fit for anything!". Hire an intelligent script writer and tell the studio to go to hell if they want to make drastic changes.

And no thanks to that retarded SuperFriends cartoon, Aquaman's forever relegated to "joke character". Never mind that he's nearly as strong as Superman, practically invulnerable underwater, can crush your ass with water spheres, and commands everything that lives in the depths (EVERYTHING, and you better hope he's in a charitable mood and only summons blue whales or giant squid). Plus he's a total hottie and perfect to lure viewers in with fanservice.

A Power Pack movie seems like a natural for Disney.

FirstNationalBastard: Of course, HBO was working on a Preacher series, but eventually got scared because of the content matter and let it die, so I guess Transmet would be just as farked.


it would have been awesome

Mugato: Rwa2play: To me, not really: Back a truck up full of money for Joss Whedon AND give him full control over it (IOW absolutely NO INTERFERENCE by the suits at WB). Done.

Hmm. Joss Whedon write a story about a girl who kicks ass. Well it would be a stretch for him but maybe.


Him & Gail Simone to collaborate. Now you tell me that wouldn't be full of win. :D

repeated and THIS'd for emphasis!

There are a couple problems with Wonder Woman. First, there's never been a good, memorable Wonder Woman story. No, Kingdom Come or Sacrifice don't count. Second, every time someone tries to make a Wonder Woman live action project, it turns into this huge mess that doesn't know whether it wants to spout feminist jargon or show Wonder Woman as someone with the powers of a god but still can't find a good man.

Until WBDC gets it through their thick heads that people just want to see Wonder Woman kick ass (like Xena) and not identify with her romantic problems, there won't be a good Wonder Woman movie or TV show.

/so, twelfth of never.

So. You never read Wonder Woman huh? I can think of a number of good ones.

No one reads Wonder Woman. That's the whole point.

Superman, Batman, The Flash, Green Lantern... it isn't difficult to think of a memorable story for any of the characters.

Wonder Woman? Nothing. Just forgettable run after forgettable run. There's no Terminal Velocity or Rogue's War or No Man's Land or President Lex or Sinestro War for Wonder Woman.


No, YOU don't read it. Therefore you can't think of a storyline. If you don't read it, how could you have any idea if there are good arcs or not? Odyssey would be a perfect fit. Almost anything from Greg Rucka's run, or Contagion from Gail Simones run. Also, the new 52 line would make great movie material.

Keizer_Ghidorah: You think those are implants? You poor sad creature.


This, also

Aquaman movie COULD be very good depending on script and director. Should be dark not preachy and feature him as a king not some random mystery Eco d-bag. Good ending for the movie after all the fighting and yapping on would be him waking some heinous beast from the ocean depths to make his point, some cthullu / godziolla like huge monster.

Manufactured nerd rage. oh boy! That's tough to do, article writer.

Put a good writer on anything and it doesn't matter.
Put Whedon on Aquaman and it'd make enough for a sequel.
This article is dumb.

As long as they don't John Carter it.

The source material was pretty terrifying at times. I remember first learning about sexual predators from that comic. It could be an amazing film if anyone had the balls to do it and didn't make it cute and broad brush.
