Agreed. This guy looks like he was born to play Captain Marvel.

Yes, Brandon Molale looks just like Captain Marvel. But..........can he act?

1) I've never been a Captain Marvel fan

2) Why would anyone want to see 2 hours of an annoying kid going "Shazam" and turning into this big muscular guy.

3) He doesn't have any good villains.

That's a biased statement. A lot of people are fans of Billy Batson/Captain Marvel and at one point, he was more popular than Superman himself. But everyone is entitled to their opinion and I respect that.

When was he more popular then Superman? I'm not trying to argue, I just don't remember that.

Sabbac and Black Adam are awesome villains. Though they're kinda just evil versions of Captain Marvel. Dr. Sivanna has done some wicked things over the years too.

@TheCannon: Mid 40's to early 50's until a copyright against Cap was issued due to him being supposedly a rip-off of Superman. During that time though, he outsold Superman and many other extremely popular titles.

@TheCannon: You won't remember it because Captain Marvel hasn't out sold Superman since the 50's

Personally I'd be down for a Cap Marvel movie. I've always thought Black Adam was great Doom-esq villain. I also think with alittle revision Mr Mind and Sivanna could also be made into some seriously sinister, badass villains.

#18 Posted by TheCannon (18732 posts) - - Show Bio

Okay. Think about it though, that wasn't exactly the greatest era of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, or Green Lantern.

@TheCannon: True, it really wasn't, but Billy/Cap is well deserving of his own film and series.

I've seen him in Mr Deeds, Welcome to the Jungle, Dodgeball, The Longest Yard, Chuck, Bones and True Blood. I first saw him in Welcome to the Jungle and thought he looks like Cap'. Then I noticed him in other things.

I agree, but my top priority for DC movies is a Wonder woman movie. Followed by Aquaman, then Justice League, the the Flash.

I think they completely botched the new Superman series already by having General Zod the villain and not Brainaic. Here's how I would do the Superman reboot series:

Man of Steel:

Have it like Superman: the Animated Series, where Brainiac is the main computer system on Krypton. When Jor-El says it will explode, Brainiac says it won’t. Later, Brainiac reveals to Jor-El that he was right, and that Brainiac’s plan was to absorb all of Krypton’s knowledge, and let it explode. Jor-El sends his son to Earth. After that, go through his normal origin story where he is adopted by Jonathan and Martha Kent. He discovers his powers as a kid. Then, he gets a job at the Daily Planet, where he meets Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, Perry White, all those people. Later, Lex Luthor announces that he has a meeting with an alien called Brainiac. He convinces the World Leaders to give Brainiac information of the Planet. Later, Superman finds out Brainiac’s true intentions to absorb all of Earth’s knowledge and then destroy it. Superman finds out what happened to Krypton, and defeats Brainiac. He reveals to the world Brainiac’s true intentions. Afterwards, there is a small amount of alien language on a Lexcorp computer, which is ignored.

The Man of Steel Returns:

Luthor, humiliated by Superman after the results of the first movie, clones Superman. The result, is Bizarro. However, they’re both too evenly matched. So, Luthor goes to prison and gets John Corben an early release. He pays him 20,000,000 dollars to become Metallo and kill Superman. Powered by kryptonite, Metallo and Bizarro almost kill Superman, but lose due to not working well together. They take one last chance to kill Superman. They kidnap Lois Lane to use her as bate. Superman goes to fight them on a boat. The boat is destroyed, causing Metallo to fall to the bottom of the ocean. Superman then convinces Bizarro that Luthor is using him. Bizarro turns on Luthor, and it is unknown whether either survived.

The Man of Steel Continues

Mercy Graves has taken control of Lexcorp after Luthor’s death in previous movie. However, Luthor returns and secretly uses Lexcorp’s technology to open a portal to the Phantom Zone. He takes General Zod to Earth and lets him build up the same powers as Superman. He promises General Zod world domination if he gives Luthor Superman’s head on a platter. Zod defeats him and takes him to Luthor. Just as Zod is about to leave, Luthor throws kryptonite at him, turning on him. Luthor hooks them up to a machine that would let him absorb their powers. However, Brainiac takes control of the machine and sends Zod back to the Phantom Zone. It ends on a cliff hanger ending…

Superman: The Man of Tomorrow:

Brainiac has completely taken control of Lexcorp computers. He builds himself a new body using Lexcorp technology. Luthor offers a deal with him to give him the most advanced technology on Earth in exchange for sparing him. Luthor introduces him to alien technology that can recreate itself from any material. The two of them then combine into one being, taking control of the entire city, growing across the planet, in order to destroy it. When Superman shows up to stop him, the Luthor/Brainiac combination creates robot duplicates of every super villain Superman has faced in this trilogy. Superman finally defeats him, and destroys every piece of Brainiac. He even gets people to go through every ounce of Lexcorp computers and eliminate any remains of Brainiac. Superman realizes he just faced the greatest threat the world has ever faced and won, realizing that there is just about nothing that Superman can’t handle.

The Man of Steal vs Apocalypse

An alien named Orion comes to Earth to warn Superman about an attack from Darkseid. Superman prepares the Earth for battle against Apocalypse. Apocalypse’s forces arrive to attack Earth. Superman wipes out one army completely. Darksid sends Kalibak to kill Superman. Superman just narrowly defeats him. Apocalypse forces continue to attack Earth. They start to drill holes to tap the Earth’s core and create fire pits in the Earth. Superman stops them and decides to take the fight to Darkseid. He travels to Apocalypse to defeat Darkseid. The two of them have an epic battle, with Superman winning. Superman then drives the rest of Apocalypse’s forces off of Earth, winning the war.

What do you think? That's what I would do if I was put in charge of the new Superman reboot.

@TheCannon: Hmm, that's actually not bad although I would have Brainiac as the series villain and the force behind the curtain constantly pulling the strings.

Not bad. I've just always loved Brainiac and thought he would be perfect for a movie. I'm thinking about a sixth movie where he's killed by Doomsday.

@TheCannon: Well considering that most films deviate from the comics to a certain extent, I would like to see the writers take a little creative freedom for the films.

I know. It wouldn't of been exactly the same as the Death of Superman story, but the main plot would of been the same where Superman was killed by Doomsday.

I would have to sit down and really think of a good way to do it. But I'm a creative person and could do it. I would also have to come up with a way he comes back to life that makes more sense.
