Sadly, neither of these characters can make it into The Avengers 2. The rights to Silver Surfer are still tied up over at Fox as part of the Fantastic Four stable of characters, while Doc Savage, despite appearing in Marvel Comics in the '70s, is owned by DC Comics these days.

If there's one person that can force Fox to sell its rights to Marvel characters, it's JCVD.

I could see him as Doc Savage.  Obviously that's not a Marvel property but if whoever owns that character wants to make a film of him, you could do worse.

My reaction to JCVD in anything = puke, best case
My reaction to JCVD as Silver Surfer = i'm going to kill ever last one of you mutherfarkers.

there will never be a good silver surfer movie. it's not going to happen.  I've accepted it and am trying to move on.

They'll go with Steven Seagal, though, if he cuts off the ponytail.

I was just thinking the same thing! about me, not JCVD.

Watch JCVD in JCVD. Great movie and he's awesome.

I think he would make a good Mole Man.

The site is blocked at work but I'm guessing the Kickboxer one? With 2 Asians dancing in a dive bar?  There's also his background part in Breakin' but it doesn't have the wtf lulz of the Kickboxer scene.

This. The camera work during his monologue was beautiful. Dude works with the material he's given.

Well that was supposed to be the gif where he makes the fairy version on himself appear. File was too large.
 
2013-03-20 01:15:39 PM
Isn't the dancing one from the South American TV show where he gets a raging boner from dancing with the two women?

Anyway, I really don't think so, JC.  No one of any consequence wants to see you in TA2.

If he's in a singlet, it's Breakin'. If he's in a tanktop, it's Kickboxer.

There was a 1975 Doc Savage film with Ron Ely (Tarzan in the TV series). I haven't seen it in many years, but I recall that it started out with a cool 1930s comic strip hero vibe, but by the end it had descended into 1960s Batman kitsch.

That film also belongs -- but somehow is never included -- on lists of "films that were absolutely convinced that they were launching a franchise but didn't". The movie ends with a cliffhanger segue into Savage's next adventure and a title card promising "Doc Savage will return!". He didn't.

Shamelessy stolen from SuperHeroHype comments:

"I just received new orders. The fans say that our part in the next Avengers movie should be canceled. We can all go home. Thanos is being paid off for his crimes, and our friends who have died here will have have died for nothing. But, we can all go home. Meanwhile, ideals like thick Austrian accents and kickboxing, they get packed up. But, we can all go home. Well, I'm not going home. I'm gonna get on my boat, and I'm going up river and I'm going to kick that sonofabiatch Thanos' ass so hard that the next Thanos-wannabe is gonna feel it. Now, who wants to go home - and who wants to appear in that movie with me?"

I see someone already pointed out that he'd be a great Batroc.

I like to describe the '75 MAN OF BRONZE as RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK as envisioned by William Dozier (producer of the 60's BATMAN).

Even for its faults, though, I rather like it.  For a little while, it managed to capture the vibe of the early Doc stories very well, and the casting was overall very good.

And, it was the screen debut of Pamela Hensley.

I guess it was the Breakin' one.  I found that one more lulz worthy than the Kickboxer one.

Is this so absurd?  He's asking to play an outlandish action hero.  Maybe with a good script he could work in some secondary role.

Yes to all of the above.

A quick GIS confirms that I must have been prepubescent when I saw it, because I don't remember her part at all.

Batroc has been mentioned, and maybe some other street-level hero/villain would be a possibility, but in a Thor movie? Cosmic level guys need to do a little more than the splits.

And he's not bulky enough for the Wrecking Crew.

That whole collection of .gifs are the most awesome thing ever.

Time for a JCVD netflix marathon.

(and why not add JCVD?  The Avengers crap is taking itself too seriously.)
 
2013-03-21 01:39:18 PM
I still contend that JCVD made the perfect Gambit movie when he made Hard Target.

No powers, but everything else worked.
