    Dang! Stumbled on this website. Thgere is much more new comic book inspired movies coming in the next few years than I tought.

    Hre are a few that I 'm looking forward to see:

    - Iron Man (Starring Tom Cruise!?!?)
    - Fantastic Four
    - Ghost Rider
    - Captain America (Though I'm scared a little to see it made as uber-patriotic)
    - X-Men 3 (Bummer! 2006! Way too far)

    Well, since Hollywood has already ruined two of my favorite comics (From Hell, and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen), it's hard for me to get too excited. :eek:

    I'm with you on leage. There were some OK elements in the league movie but overall it was a great disapointment. I liked Hyde the best. He looked quite similar to the comic book version.

    Hollywood has failed me with the steampunk feel. Let see if they can do better with the pulp themed "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow". Preview is available on quicktime.com

    Don't forget they are remaking superman and doing yet another batman.

    As Matt Drudge says, "Hollywood is nothing more then a conveyer belt of sequals"

    By the way

    X-Men 1: 2000
    X-Men 2: 2003
    X-Men 3: 2006

    Three years between each seems to be the standard.

    Snoorree.

    Comics should stay comics, or atleast animated.

    Put it on TV... leave it to comic... why live action?

    WHY LIVE ACTION!

    I ask this about movies like Scooby Doo... Great... and then you make it live action... absolute crap.

    nah, I don't know about that. they did a really good job with X-men. Kept it close to the comics, but weren't afraid to change enough to make it work as live-action. I think comics to movies can work; you just have to be careful.

    X-Men would have worked without the Comic, or the TV show.

    It was one of the first to use 'mutants' in its story.


    Like where did Spiderman fit in during the comics?

    At the beggining?

    Well yes... but who was the first villian in the Original Spider-Man?

    10 Points to the first person to get it right.

    I was in Best Buy today and saw a DVD of Vampirella. :D I wouldn't even dare to guess how bad that one was.

    Did any of you ever see the live action Captain America, Flash, or Wonder Woman t.v. series?

    Or even crappier yet, anyone seen the original fantastic four movie that was judged too crappy to be ever released? It was made by roger Corman (1994). They finished it and canned it so nobody would ever have to see it.

    Fortunatly for the curious... make that unfortunatly, it's still possible to occasionally find copies of it on the net. You should not take my word for it because some of my friends actually liked it.

    You can find some pics here:

    Look up in the sky!

    Not enough movie-super-heros fly. Storm from the XMen is the exception of course. Neo's flying in the Matrix sequels made me want to see a new SuperMan film.

    Silver Surfer would be even better, now that is is feasable with the CGI.
