There have been various releases of superhero movies this year, (Dark Knight, Hellboy II, Iron Man, Hancock)
and a couple more on the way in 2009. But what superhero movies would you REALLY like to see made, if any?
Personally I'd like to see a Dark Claw movie made, I think that'd be wicked. If you haven't heard of Dark Claw here's a Wiki link:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_Claw

He's a mixture of Batman and Wolverine, and the coolest superhero ever.

Green Lantern. GL diservs his own movie. And will all the awesome CGI effects we have, the movie would be epic! Green Lantern was always one of my favorite DC heros.

I was gonna say the same thing. Also, I think Spawn needs to have another go at it. I'd love to do that one.

And not to mention Dr. Fate

CX3, I was hoping you'd get into the conversation you fanboy you. Dr Fate huh? Which one though, there's been a few. Same with Lantern. Maybe a little JLA is in order to rival the upcoming Avengers wink

Good article for people reading this topic:

http://denofgeek.com/movies/147293/75_comics_being_made_into_films.html

Personally not a comic fan, but every now and then a comic book film does it for me.

I believe the Flash needs to return but the big screen. The flash movie was on TV and it didn't so good If I remember right. my second would be Aquaman movie would be nice. not one of him on land because that would be dumb but one when he's in the ocean.

Green Lantern would be cool, but I like the idea of a Dr Fate movie...but IMO I'm still a big fan of the original "pulp style" of old comics and Dr. Fate could be interesting. IMO, Captain America should take place in WWII- it shouldn't be a modern update at least on the first movie- they should wait and defrost him later when the Avengers comes out. IMO a gritty, WWII movie but with Cap running through it would be awesome.

I hear that. I like the Cap costume, but I'd like to see the actual WWII shield instead of the cirlce.

Actually I like the circle sheild because it is simple and iconic, but I'd like to see him with a shoulder holster and period military style accessories:





Some kind of combo of these ideas, with a more modern touch perhaps...

I dunno wink you have to admit the WWII shield is pretty sweet looking. Although I suppose it wouldn;t fly through the air so well if he threw it at someone...

Honestly I would love to get my hands on any of them hah (Fates and GL's). I'm partial to John Stewart only because I've seen every episode of JL and JLU about 10 times haha (but I think he fits better in an ensemble/team story rather than a stand alone). But there's nooo way in hell I'd turn down Rayner or Jordan - They obviously work great as stand alones. As for Fate tho, I would have to choose Kent Nelson.

Bryan -- I'm pretty sure the new Cap movie does take place during WW2 era, doesn't it? I'm all most positive. They'd be fools not to tell it like that ha. I'm pretty sure the same goes for the Avengers movie as well.

Actually I believe Cap originally did have the classic WWII type of shield in the early days, before MLJ (Archie Comics) complained that it was too reminiscent of "The Shield"

Does anyone know of a DC superhero that had a magic "key" type of thing that shot out rays like Green Lanterns ring? I had this Justice League Paperback novel when I was a kid (back in like 1978) and it was this strange thing where the Golden Age heroes and the modern age heros were all together fighting this ultimate enemy, and there were at that time two green lanterns and a mysical sorcerer guy that had this key-fob thing that shot out rays like the lanterns-

Any ideas on who this might be!?

Ahhh. I think you're talking about Wizard. He's tried to take on the JLA and JSA on numerous occasions, and has come pretty close once or twice. I'm guessing that the key your talking about might be the key to the Ghost Zone, which I know lets him travel to other dimensions, but I'm not sure if he can shoot energy beams out of it. Maybe the two Lanterns were the same but from different dimensions? Or were they two different people like Hal Jordan and Kyle Rayner?

i read somewhere that the Cap flick is gonna be a period type thing which is kinda cool cause, you know how in the comics he has the whole no killing rule or code? well he is, was a soldier. soldiers kill because they have to and i think it'd be pretty hard for them to avoid that aspect in the film so I'm curious on how they will do this. it's gonna be pretty interesting. i like both shields because they both look cool. some friends that work for a rat in Florida are helping me on a project that i started 10 years ago. it has changed a lot since i first began. now it's kinda based on the 2099 universe but it also ties in with the post civil war story line. that's why it's based in the future. there are only three heroes at first. one is a descendant of Cap. but anyway these guys are amazing acrobats and pretty decent actors. so far my brother has helped me design uniforms rather than costumes for them which are more practical in combat rather than spandex. we're using "blender" to design a shield for Cap's grandson that kinda does a morph thing between the original shield and round shield. the movie is gonna rock no matter what. one last thing... i had to wait 10 years because i didn't stumble upon FX home till last June but now that i have vision lab there's no limits and I'm rather excited about the whole thing. Cap is definitely one of my all time favorites.

Why isn't Cap still alive? He ages at a slower rate, its a side effect of the super soldier serum. So he'd still be kickin'.

Hmmm..... The Wizard doesn't sound right, but it has been 30 years since I had that book. Yes, the Green Lanterns (and all the other heroes) were represented by several incarnations- the Golden Age Flash was along side the new Flash as well as a really old "Mercury" looking character- and so on... but I remember this guy had like a turban or something an this little key-fob thing and he was working WITH the Green Lanterns to concentrate energy or something... Hmmm...........

I found this!
This is the book I had:

Oh right he was WITH the Corps. My bad, I keep forgetting. Right well I'm sticking with Wizard until a better answer comes along.

EDIT: Bryan was this person a member of the Green Lantern Corps? I'm thinking that if he was shooting energy
shaped like the lantern that he might have been a GL from a different sector. Now I sound like a nerd.

hey FE Filmmaker, were you asking me why Cap wasn't still alive? in the script i wrote i followed what happened in civil war. he was apparently killed on the way to his trial. i do agree with the serum slowing down his aging process. i wrote it like the good guys and bad guys that we know are either dead or remained in hiding plus they had kids that in turn had children that developed abilities based on their grandparents. one good point i thought I'd make is that when it comes to films such as sequels or remakes, and especially comic based movies, i like to look at them as a "what if" in marvel or "else worlds" in d.c. they're just a different take on the heroes that we read about. some are good and have great concepts just like some aren't as good for whatever reason. but they are still fun to watch. i can't wait to see what they come up with.

No- He was like a guy in a tuxedo or suit, with a turban on his head, and this little key-fob thingy. He looked like an old stage magician from the turn of the century, which is why I think he was a Golden Age hero or something. His name was probably "the great Kazzam" or some such thing- in fact last night that is the name that came to me in my sleep-

That was during the Civil War though, his movie takes place before then.

p.s The Civil War was wicked.

No I'm wrong actually, he said it takes place after the Civil War. So Cap IS dead because he got shot by a sniper (Red Skull). Right that sorts that then.

yeah that blows, my brother just told me that The Winter Soldier which was his sidekick during the war "Bucky" took over Being Cap after he was shot. I'm pretty sure they'll bring him back somehow as no one seems to stay dead for too long.

cause Cap doesn't kill right? i've always thought that was weird, not that it's a bad thing but he was a soldier and stuff. maybe he saw too much of that in the war and made a personal choice to never kill again. Bucky on the other hand was like a brainwashed assassin or something this whole time right? i hope he doesn't kill anyone while in Cap's role cause when he eventually comes back he's gonna be mighty ticked that someone would do that in his named.

There were three Captain America's in the WWII period, if memory serves me, the death of the first two was in the comic series.

I don't remember how the first one died, the second one died along with Bucky, his sidekick, tryig to stop a vengnence missle aimed at America... I'm trying to remember if it was Dead Head who fired it or not.

The third Captain America was actually Spitfire, the British counter-part to Capt who took his role to avoid the morale hit to America and her Allies if it was found out Capt America was dead. Spitfire served out the rest of WWII as Capt America.

Spitfire was an interesting character, he actually felt a bit inadequate compared to many of the other superhero's of WWII. Now, that would be an interesting story to relay in a movie... I wonder how may minds that would blow?

It was actually Baron Zemo that launched it, and it was an experimental drone plane that Zemo was trying to destroy. But the Cap and Bucky who tried to stop it were the originals. When the plane exploded their bodies landed in the Atlantic and they were frozen. This all takes place in the last year of WWII. The copies of Cap and Bucky came along later until the 1960's when Cap was thawed.

very cool man, i was having a flash back as i read your post. i was in preschool again. wow that was crazy. but pretty accurate. you've got a great memory. it was 1976 when i was in preschool and they had a couple of hardcover edition books in the library with "origin" stories for Cap Spidey, and the Hulk. i think a few others but i can't remember which.

thanks for saving me from having to raid my old comic books. As you re-told it, the pictures of the comic story come back to me. I still think there was one other Cap before then, but then with all the various stories it is tough to say what it "the" story.

Was I right about Spitfire taking Cap's place though, right? Hate to take those comics out of their protective bags.

I don't know if i want to see anymore comic characters on film, I prefer how I read them in the comics.

you sound pretty sure that there were several other Cap's out there that i may have never known about. i believe you because i know for sure that i don't know everything and to me it's cool to think that there's something out there that i don't know which means i can still learn stuff. to me that's bad-ass and i welcome it. if you can point out the books that you read and if not can you on a separate post tell the stories that you read and how you remember them. i live for this kind of stuff and i appreciate it cause it's something unique that i haven't heard and i love hearing stories such as the short films and what not that some of the guys make and post on this sight for everyone to see. as far as i'm concerned every single person on this sight really kicks @$$ cause they use their imagination in so many unique ways that not everyone will understand but every now and then you get the ones that do get it. that's cool right so the Cap movie is gonna rock just like the new Star Trek movie. sorry 4 sounding corny but i just came from a reunion and i told all my buds about this sight and its products, more so that i was proud to be a part of a community that is willing to help each other out, no questions asked. P.S. i only had one beer.... don't ask how many shot's i had cause i lost count at one. ha ha.

lol... I was going to ask how many "red bulls" did you drink...

I'll have to find the comics I had stored with my parents when I left for the military. I haven't seen them in years.

It'll be a bit before I can get to it, i'm working on a machinima-based memorial video for a member of the group who had passed away.

Na not Red bull man. my buddy told me I drank way too much that night. I was pretty exited cuase some friends and I have been working on a Marvel based web series. 23 people are in it so far. actors stunt guys and a few extra's. so a friend of a friend heard us talking and when I asked her opinion on a certain part she kinda dug it and is now on board, hence the long winded post. I was a little drunk and laughed when I just re-read my previous post" drunk typing" ? ha! tard

man, did I goof, the character who took over Capt'n America's role was Union Jack. Spitfire was a female character.

There were Three Union Jack characters. The original Union Jack had a son who took over the role during WWII - the son became incacitated and a friend of his took over the role of Union Jack - it was this Union Jack who then took the role of Capt'n America.

Spitfire was a relative, but I can't rememeber if it was to the first two Union Jacks or the third one.

My appologies.

yeah i didn't even know about that Union Jack guy. i just went through a few of my brothers comics and there he was with Cap and a speedster chick "Spitfire" i think. they fought some Nazi wanna be guys on a ship before it blew up. this is before Cap got shot during the Civil War thing.
