The "Superhero Films That Haven't Been Made Yet" Thread - Page 3

post #101 of 142

Apparently, we are getting closer to a Doctor Strange movie.

 

http://splashpage.mtv.com/2013/01/25/ant-man-doctor-strange-marvel/

 

And Ain't It Cool News threw out this suggestion for the director's chair.....Don Coscarelli.

 

The more I think about it, the more I want it to become a reality.

Can't think of anyone else that could make sense. As I said not a fan of Wonder Woman so casting really dosent matter to me. I care more about The Flash honestly than her.

 

Well, if they can give Barry Allen or Hal Jordan interesting personalities, they can do it for anyone.

If it weren't for the fact that Sony owns the movie rights to Venom and Norman Osborn, I would kill for a movie version of Warren Ellis' short run on Thunderbolts. Then again, a movie version of Civil War would have to be done first to justify doing Ellis' Thunderbolts. Oh, well, a man can dream. frown.gif

Well, ideally for me, Don C would be too busy making The Dark Tower. And GDT is always too busy......

So, howbout someone gives Stuart Gordon a chance at the bigtime?

You've just nailed one of the HUGE fucking problems with doing "comic book movies" - most, if not all, of the interesting story arcs are weighted down by shit-tons of backstory. The 3rd X-Men movie totally shit the bed with the Dark Phoenix saga, but it still would have taken them 2 dedicated movies to get anywhere near doing it justice anyhow.

I find it ironic that due to health reasons back in the late 80s, Stuart Gordon had to step down from directing Honey, I Strunk the Kids and that the job eventually went to Joe Johnston. I love a lot of Johnston's movies, but I always wonder what would have happened to Gordon if had directed Honey. Maybe in an alternate universe, there are kids watching Gordon's version of Captain America?

Guessing Jurassic Park III would I'd been a thousand times better. Probably would of gotten the dinosaur/human hybrids as was rumored and honestly that could been really cool. I'm iffy on Gordon he's okay but not amazing. I do really dig his adaptation of From Beyond. What a freaky movie that is. Also one has to wonder what Stuart Gordon's The Rocketeer woul of been like.

I cannot see how a Venom solo movie wouldn't suck. His anti-hero nonsense got old quickly and he would basically be a Punisher clone with more power. Brock was a damn murderer who started as a petty, jealous thug. Anyone know if the Flash Thompson version of the character was any better? 

post #109 of 142

bigbrother, Triple HHH should be...Eddie Brock aka Venom!  Of course Brock is...Insane!  Still, he...Only kills...Criminals!  Brock as a hero is not that different than...Rogue, The White Queen, Sandman etc becoming heroes in later books.

I can't be the only one who wants to see the long ago announced SuperMax movie right?

post #111 of 142

Love Machine, Supermax doesn't interest me.  Green Arrow, without his bow and arrow is not much of anything.  If the character were...The Punisher, then...Yes, I would want to see it.  Frank Castle Punishing other inmates and...Loving it, would be...Awesome!

Change the character to Deathstroke  trying to earn his freedom via working a black ops style mission inside the prison and there's your mid level hit right there. Also the comic series Corrective Measures is based on your Puinisher idea, so you might want to check that out.

 

I doubt, given Arrow, we'll see the Green Arrow on the big screen at the same time.  SO they would have to change the main character to get it made anyhow.

Can't remember if I said it on this board or another, but if they don't go with a villain, I'd be interested in seeing them swap in Mister Terrific. The Green Arrow thing always seemed weird, since the bow is such an integral part of his gimmick.

I would think a 'Suicide Squad' movie could get off the ground pretty quickly.

 

Doom Patrol would need a bit of budget, but could work too.

As much as I love the Suicide Squad (minus the middling recent series), I think that might be a slightly tougher adaptation than people think. A bunch of super-villains with goofy costumes doing super-serious covert work played in the comics, but I'm not sure people would be ready for Zero Dark Thirty meets The Avengers. Conversely, if you take the X-Men approach and make the uniforms way more grounded, then suddenly you've just got a bunch of super-powered mercenaries. Which isn't a terrible idea for a series, but sort of nixes any sort of even casual character recognition. The nice thing about Marvel's lighter approach to the material is that it leaves the door open for the more out-there brands and characters to still fit within the larger universe. I think Superman (and it's relative Nolanization), while give a better indicator for how viable some of these properties in regards to the overall DC aesthetic.

post #116 of 142

A real Teen Titans movie would be cool.Make it the Jr versions of the main guys. Robin,Kid Flash,Aqualad,Wondergirl and Speedy. Have it end with Deathstroke looking over the files of the possible Titans and set up for the sequal the Judas Contract

Think of it as a litmus test - obviously people will watch the shit out of "known" super heroes onscreen; given the box office of stuff like Blade and Ghost Rider, even b (or fuck it, d)-list properties can be successful. 

 

My own take is that as long as it's interesting and semi-well-done, it doesn't have to be all that "realistic" of a premise, because let's face it, fucking GHOST RIDER. 

 

Plus a Suicide Squad movie would have to dispense with the "origin" because there's no way you'd cover 6-8 people coming from disparate backgrounds, so it would basically just hit the ground running - "these guys have powers, and do bad stuff. GO!"

Just do a Dirty Dozen opening. All of them in jail, offered redemption, super secret mission using super powers goes mostly awry resulting in lots of death and salvation of the character identification villian.

 

 

Hell, have them infilitrate Dr. von Doom's country and basically remake Dirty Dozen. Except with super powers not named Charles Bronson, Lee Marvin, Telly Savalas, or Ernest Borgnine. Jim Brown, John Cassevettes, or Donald Sutherland.  On second thought... can we get a Dirty Dozen versus Suicide Squad crossover? Cause I am not sure who the winner be.

Open with Flagg and/or Waller arriving at the prison, greeted by the warden, flipping through files, 30 second flashbacks for each super-villain showing them in-costume and getting taken down, as they walk to each cell and make the offer: Five years on the Squad, serving the country you were fucking up. Survive, and you go free. Die? At least you died on the outside.

I would prefer Waller. There is something about Angela Bassett ordering me around that makes me tingle.

 

 

However, with that being said, JLU made me picture someone much different than Bassett as Waller. I always saw someone like Della Reese. Broader shouldered, willing to cut someone.

post #121 of 142

I read somewhere a couple of years ago that Strikeforce Morituri was being considered. The initial year or so of that book was awesome and would work very well as comic book films become more common. The way the heroes all have very short life-spans would run counter to the immortality all other superheroes seem to enjoy.

 

@John  Matrix: Absolutely agree about Adam Warlock

Those are good choices, but I'm going with CCH Pounder. She went toe-to-toe with Vic Mackey and was still standing by the end of THE SHIELD.

She's the voice of the cartoon Waller already, so why not.

post #124 of 142
Marvel is doing amazing things with Captain Marvel right now. There's no real reason why a comic character needs to gestate on paper for decades before hitting theaters instead of evolving in both media simultaneously, and it would hysterical to see Marvel put a strong woman solo act on the screen before Warner can get its act together with Wonder Woman.

There's rumors she'll be in either Guardians of the Galaxy or Avengers 2.

Personally I'd much rather see the Monica Rambeau version of the character.

Speaking of the shield, it occurs to me that Michael Chiklis would be interesting as Drax The Destroyer. Obviously, he wouldn't be the physical specimen from the comics, but the guy's a beast in his own way. And with Chris Evans as Captain America, the culture has clearly agreed that the Fantastic Four movies never happened. So why not?

 

But on the topic of the subject of the thread, a Secret Six movie would be fun. The premise: Lex Luthor and assorted Big Bads draft every supervillain on Earth into an army, but six of them say "Fuck that noise" and stand against them, because they have slightly too many morals to let the Earth be turned into a hellhole. Or if that doesn't work for you, they end up a gang of mercenaries--think Suicide Squad, only working for certified bad guys instead of the law. 

 

Any movie whose premise begins "a team with a killer anthropomorphic shark on it" has to be doing something right.

I'd watch a Sinister Six movie written as an ensemble comedy about a bunch of mutt super-villains who can't get ahead. Get Norm MacDonald to voice Spider-Man as a sarcastic douche who keeps thwarting them in embarrassing ways.

I'd watch it. The movie would probably go over like a fart in church, but I'd still watch it.

That would be glorious and probably a good to make characters like the Chameleon interesting. I loved Spider-Man as a kid but too many of his villains are far better as mid-level henchmen than top level threats that can carry an entire movie.

They could use the Sinister Six as comic relief villains and still have a Big Bad. maybe have the Six screw up the Big Bad's plan with their hijinx, or team up with him/her at the end.

 

Has anyone mentioned the Sandman series set in the 1920's? The one where Sandman is a guy wearing a WW I Gas Mask? That would make a good Indie flick or even a tv show.

 

Also, Reid Fleming, World's Toughest Milkman as animated film, ideally with Jack Nicholson voicing Reid, and maybe Bill Murray as Cooper (although somehow Murray looks like Reid).

 

Oh wait, they DID! Sort of.

Splatoon, Carol Danvers is the...One, Ms. Marvel to me.  Kree Captain Mar-Vell is also my favorite...Captain Marvel!  If Ms. Marvel became...Captain, I'd be fine with that too as long as it was Ms. Danvers!

post #134 of 142

The current (and, sadly, about to be cancelled) Carol Danvers Captain Marvel series has been terrific, and there's a great screenplay in it... though again, you'd have to persuade a studio to back a female-focused film (times a bunch, really, since the aviators, and the Mercury 13 veterans, are all women).

post #135 of 142

Jeb, Now that...The Pentagon is allowing women to join Combat Units as...Combatants, and not just support personnell, it would be a...Great time for Ms. Marvel!  I would cast...Yvonne Strahovski as the...Lovely Carol Danvers!  She would be a...MARVELous...Ms!

post #136 of 142

Noami Watts would give the character the experienced look she should have. I hate the young casting we keep getting for our female heroines that are expected to be experts in their fields at the age of 22.

yeah i like the idea but not Naomi Watts she isn't volumptous enough. Should be more in the vein of Kate Winslet, Charlize Theron or Nicole Kidman. Or if you want to go a little younger Michelle Williams. Maybe after being a damsel in distress in King Kong and being thrown around like a rag doll in The Impossible it's hard for me to see her playing Carol Danvers.

Love Machine, Yvonne Strahovski is...31 this July!

post #139 of 142

She's also a TV actress, she' s not getting a major motion picture based around her, anymore than Trisha Helfer or Lucy Lawless ever did. I like the idea of Theron thou

post #140 of 142

Love Machine, Well...We are not actually doing the...Hiring.  We are just suggesting whom...We want as X Superhero in X Film.  I am not a fan of either Trisha Helfer or Lucy Lawless.  I have...No interest in seeing Charlize Theron or Kate Winslet as Ms. Marvel.  Malin Ackerman, would be a...MARVELous Ms, as well.  Her...Silk Spectre was one of the...Best parts, of Zach Snyder's Watchmen!

Really? I thought she was the weakest link in that movie, which is saying something as I had almost nothing positive to say for that film, apart from Haley's Rorshach and Morgan's The Comedian. She was so wrong for that part it really made the movie painful to watch same as with Matthew Goode's Ozymandias, although I've liked him in other stuff. But no she'd be all wrong for this part.

 

Another name I can go with is Chloe Sevigny. I know that may seem totally off but in the British TV series Hit and Miss she is excellent as a hitman (that term is rather accurate considering her character in the show though, lol), very convincing in that part and honestly the best thing I've seen her in awhile and I think she could totally nail the Carol Danvers character.

 

So my top 5 to play her would be:

 

Kate Winslet, Charlize Theron, Chloe Sevigny, Michelle Williams, and maybe Ronda Rousey if you just want to go down the route of making her into a badass with little acting  involved which I could see them doing with her, she could totally nail awesome fight scenes.

post #142 of 142

As that Fringe fan, I'd suggest Anne Torv as Captain Marvel. And as for being a TV star--what had Chris Hemsworth or Chris Evans done before their respective movies? And that's saying she gets her own movie instead of being attached to a larger movie like Hawkeye or Black Widow were. In a perfect world, the Torvinator would be the viewpoint character (or the "John Crichton", if you prefer) for Guardians of the Galaxy, then join the team in Avengers 2. The GotG have enough great members to easily handle the turnover; I'd love to see Moondragon or Phyla-vell in Guardians of the Galaxy 2: Yes, There Is Still A Talking Raccoon.
