Which comic book character/ team do you think would make an awesome movie but has been overlooked by Hollywood?

Personally I think Cloak and Dagger would make an amazing 3-D movie and it would have a very good anti-drug theme.

What do you think?

NIGHTCRAWLER!! But I doubt that anyone could make a movie that would be good enough for him. Ummm...how about Superman? It's not like he has about 5 movies and another coming out soon!!

It looks like Hollywood are working with Wonder Woman, Flash and the Justice League...

Besides that i really think that Fantastic 4 deserves a reboot. But lesser characters like Wildcat or something would be cool on screen.

shazam , jsa, , wonder woman. most of the major marvel characters have been made into movies so ...

Irredeemable and Incorruptible could potentially make good movies that I would like to see. They would just have to be shortened quite a bit.

Btw, this is in the wrong forum.

With the Avengers movie coming out I could see a solo movie for Black Widow, Hawkeye, or even Nick Fury, to capitalize off the hopefull awesomeness of the Avengers movie.

Here is a top nine list of characters I would like to see get their own movie. It starts at 9 and works it's way up to 1.

9. Spider-man 2099

8. Dr Strange

7. Dr Doom

6. Magneto

5. Justice League

4. Flash

3. Power Girl

2. Aquaman

1. Wonder Woman

I took it as characters that haven't appeared in a live action movie. Otherwise, I would have X-men 4, Batman reboot, Fantastic Four reboot, an Incredible Hulk 2. Or as some people would call it, Hulk 3.

This is my 1000th post.

@TheCannon: no problem.

I'm surprised since I actually agree with most people on your list (Though 2099 wouldn't seem entertaining IMO since we're closer to that year than when the character was first made)

#11 Posted by TheCannon (19008 posts) - - Show Bio

We are closer to the year 2099 then when the character was made, but it's still pretty far away. 87 years by my count.

#12 Posted by primepower53 (5686 posts) - - Show Bio

@TheCannon: Don't get me wrong, it has potential to be an awesome movie, but they may want to change the date past 2099...

#13 Posted by TheCannon (19008 posts) - - Show Bio

I think that might be a good move. The year wouldn't affect the story any. How about 2255?

#14 Posted by primepower53 (5686 posts) - - Show Bio

@TheCannon: that could work...

I want a heroes for hire staring Luke, Danny and Misty. However, a WW movie is something the World NEEDS come on DC GL before WW? A Hawkeye movie would be an epic idea too if the actor does a good job.

#16 Posted by capelesscrusader (103 posts) - - Show Bio

Hawkeye would probably make for an excellent movie, given his rather sordid past and his current path, there is a lot of good story and character "meat" to chew on.

True Dat.

And to answer your question, movies on The Flash, Wonder Woman, and Ant-Man should be made at least before I die.

It's possible a Flash movie would be made and released in theaters before WW. Ant-Man already has a commited director (Edgar Wright) who's currently rewriting the film's script.

For real about Ant-Man? Well, I'll be damned. That is some interesting news today.

A J.S.A movie (Alan Scott, Jay Garrick, Ted Grant) would be awesome have it take place in the 1960's, I think an Ant-Man movie would be great but make it a Hank Pym movie so we can get Ant-Man Giant-Man and YellowJacket and Nemesis (mark millar) would be well, I think it will happen sooner or later

MOON KNIGHT

LOL, no I was just saying other comic book properties I'd like to see made into live-action movies. :P

i strongly believe that Teen Titans could be the "next harry potter" is done the right way.

an Nightwing movie could also be great - it`s like a more relatable batman and he`s cooler than Spiderman.

Superboy could also be a great movie

also your mentions : shazam , Flash,WW, and GL (done right) could be cool

X-23, Dazzler, Teen Titans(although it's a team, not a character), Wonder Woman, Spider-Man 2099 and Power Girl.

Sadly, I don't think that these films are planned to be made :( I would especially LOVE to watch a live-action Teen Titans movie.

This would honestly make a good animated film.

I forgot about Luke Cage. And I agree that they should of made Wonder Woman before Green Lantern.

Deathstroke, Captain Atom, Flash , Wonder Woman, Daredevil(reboot) and Authority.

#35 Posted by Monarch_Chronicle (910 posts) - - Show Bio

Let's Hope Ant-Man gets made.

Other than that i would love to see a Dr.Strange, Black Panther, Daredevil reboot, The Atom, Green Arrow, All-Star Superman ( the plot i mean), Luke Cage, Wonder Woman, JLA, Teen Titans, The Flash, Iron Fist, Archangel, Lucifer, John Constantine, and of course Moon Knight though it might be a little dark for current audiences.

Ororo Munroe aka Storm

the Question

#39 Edited by fodigg (6146 posts) - - Show Bio

Umm:

  • Wonder Woman
  • Booster Gold (plus Ted Kord & Rip Hunter)
  • Spidey 2099 (or just "Marvel 2099")
  • Runaways
  • Cyborg
  • Captain Marvel (Danvers)
  • Heroes For Hire (Luke Cage, Misty Knight, Danny Rand)
  • The Question (Sage or Montoya)

And I actually want to vote against a Flash movie. I mean, I love Wally, but I just don't see how a speedster movie would work live-action.

#40 Posted by dulux_doggy (3 posts) - - Show Bio

They had plans for a Runaways movie, they'd even done casting but Avengers kinda took priority. Runaways should be out by about 2014.

I think a movie based on a villain would be cool, like The Hood, maybe.

#41 Edited by Loki9876 (3051 posts) - - Show Bio

Doctor Strange

Black Panther

Ant-man (come on Edgar Wright)

Flash

Green lantern (A good reboot in the future, please)

oh and Iron Fist

and a SHIELD movie (a superhero spy movie with Hawkeye, black widow, Mockingbird and Falcon in a team with Nick Fury as their director (also featured Maria Hill, Agent Coulson)

#42 Edited by jhazzroucher (16148 posts) - - Show Bio

Ororo Munroe definitely. She has interesting powers , personality and physical appearance.

#43 Posted by FearTheLiving (3556 posts) - - Show Bio

No particular order:

Teen Titans (I wasn't even thinking about them until you guys posted it, man that could be an amazing movie.)

Dare Devil (When and if he goes back to Marvel.)

Black Panther

Ant/Giant Man & Wasp (Hank and Jan)

Hawkeye or Green Arrow (Prefer Hawkeye though)

Deadpool (If done right)

The Flash (Wally West)

Punisher (Liked Thomas Jane one, but Warzone was terrible so a reboot could be cool in a couple years.)

@SoA: And wonder isn't a major character? Also why would they make a movie of the wizard shazam? I believe you meant captain marvel.

#46 Posted by SoA (4929 posts) - - Show Bio

@weaponx25: i said most not all to me WW, batman, and superman ,are the major characters in DC, yes i meant capt marvel but as he is gonna be known as shazam in the DCnU i said shazam . and seeing how they made GL already i would very much like a wonder woman movie next . if they are no plans for a JLA movie then i would definitely like a Captain Marvel movie after WW. hell ill even go as far as to say i wanna see deadman made

#47 Posted by Blood1991 (8098 posts) - - Show Bio

@jhazzroucher: I don't want Fox touching Storm, but I do think her orgin would make a good movie though I don't think it would make a good action movie more of a superhero drama.

#48 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

Captain Marvel, Ant-Man, Heroes for Hire, Deadpool, Dr. Doom, Dr. Strange, and Magneto.  
 
I'd love to say Flash and Wonder Woman, but... Green Lantern proved we can't have nice things. At least Captain Marvel is allowed to be funny. Whatever GL was supposed to be, funny or not, it sucked.

  • Ant-Man
