With ALL the movies out now or coming out in theatres based on comics, which do you think would be worth doing, and which do you think should stay in the bargain basement comic dens where the belong? I'm still voting for that She-Hulk flick starring Brigitte Nielsen.

They should make a movie out of my comic. :twisted:
Seriously though, the best comic movie ever would be…

LOBO! And the music would feature Slayer, Pantera, Children of Bodom, and Metallica.

In all seriousness, I would like to see an Invincible ANIMATED film. (2D, mind you).

It seems like any comic I think could use a movie adaptation has either been done or is about to be done.

How about a movie adaptation of Howard the Duck? Get some high-profile director like George Lucas to work on it… It's a guaranteed hit, I tell you!

Squadran Supreme… for some reason.

But seriously, I would like to see a movie of Scud: The Discposable Assasin

I'm also doing that other comic "Space Waffles".

While we're on comic movies, after Superman Returns comes out, that's pretty much it for the rest of the year, unless you count the Utlimate Avengers 2 movie on DVD. Next year is Ghost Rider, Fantastic Four 2, Spider-Man 3, and possibly the Wonder Woman movie.

You know, it seems like I heard something about an Ironman movie, but I could've been wrong, or it fell by the wayside. I think it may have been among the slew of other comic book movies that got announced back when they were the hottest thing.

If they do an Iron Man movie, then they better play the original Black Sabbath song as the theme. NO EXCEPTIONS!

There's going to be a live-action Deathnote movie. I'm rather happy about that.

To be fair, that was supposed to be a TV show, and it was never made (thank god) due to lack of interest. So it wouldn't count. :wink:

IMO, these movies/shows are it the top of the crapfest (in no particular order):
  • - Howard the Duck (as Hawk mentioned) (1986)
    - Captain America (1979, 1991)
    - Superman III (1983)
    - Superman IV (1987)
    - The Punisher (1989, 2004)
    - Fantastic Four (Unaired pilot -1994)
    - JLA (Unaired pilot -1997)
    - Judge Dredd (1995)
    - Batman and Robin (1997)
    - Steel (1997)
    - Hulk (2003)
    - The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003)
    - Supergirl (1984)
    - The Shadow (1994)
    - Robocop 3 (1993)
    - The Phantom (1996)
    - Spawn (1997)
    - History of Violence (2005)
    - Men In Black II (2002)

I liked the Punisher and History of Violence.

The only real problem I had with Punisher was that it was set in Miami. That was stupid. I know why they moved him out of NY, but it was still dumb. Unless you were talking about the 1989 version with Dolph Lundgren. :P


I saw History of Violence with Chuck and his wife Martha and we just thought it was awful.
Us: “Allright, we get it. It's a nice, slow, town with godfearing, decent people. Like we can't see a stark contrast coming”

Movie Character: “Well, I'll see you in church, John”.

Us: “AAARRRGH!!!”

It was slow moving, horribly acted and sooo freakin' obvious he was lying about his past from the get go.

I doubt there is an actual raod sign that would say “Philadelphia 585 miles”. That would be pretty dumb. :?

The sex scenes were not only gratuitus and needless, they =were stupid.

Plus the William Hurt scenes were just pathetic.

Sucked eggs. IMO :wink:

I want to see the Gods of Arr-kelaan movie where they just took Wild Wild West and pasted Chuck’s character’s faces into the movie. :P

There's supposed to be an Ex Machina movie around 2007. Considering Hollywood has created exceptional political thrillers, I'm hoping they treat Ex Machina as a political movie and not as a comic book movie, which would kill it. However if they treat as a political thriller it could really open up a lot of doors.

First of all, the Dolph Lundgren version is the better of the two Punisher films(Christ, that remake needed Louis Gossett Jr!).

The 2nd Capt. America made-for-TV movie rocked better than any episode of the Incredible Hulk show, or the American Spider-Man live-action series.

Superman IV is cool because it is impossible for any 80s movie with Jon Cryer in it to be not cool.

Howard The Duck was also the first Marvel character to be used in a feature-length theatrical release(not counting the Capt. America movie serials), so he beats out X-Men, Spidey, Blade, and those other posers!

Judge Dredd reigns supreme because no force on this Earth can stand up to the awsome comedy stylings of Mr. Rob Schneider.

Steel…..Well, okay. That one DID suck!

League Of Extrodinary Gentlemen was better than the actual comic because there was a richer cast to it who were more motivated, and the plot had a better direction. All the original first volume was a turf war between Prof. Moriarty and Fu Man Chu, and you never new Mina Harker was a vampire in it!

History Of Volience was a good movie for a graphic novel interpetation. Not all good comic-based movies have to be about mutants and aliens. Watch Road To Perdition or Ghost World.

Supergirl IS cool for the sole reason that it gave alot of fanboys in the mid-80s a serious hardon. C'mon! You know you wanted Helen Slater! Admit it, damn you!
