All in color for a dime...

I was just wondering something...

If you've been reading this blog you know my love for all things pulp and comic book, and how I sometimes try to relate that stuff back to the DVD world and screenwriting. In the comments section of the Marvel post below, I made a quick list of some of the Marvel comics that I thought should be movies (actually the Marvel movies I would want to write).

So I put the question to you, what comic book or pulp story would you like to write as a movie? It could be anything from Ant-Man to Sweet Annie Fanny.

So turn your imaginations loose, dream those four-color dreams, then tell us about it...

Marvel's The Defenders would rock with just about any variation of the non-team. Timothy Truman's Scout and Chuck Dixon's Airboy would be great movies. I liked both of Bill's ideas of The Gargoyle and Morbius.

I almost fell out of my chair when I first learned that there is actually a movie version of one of my favorite fumetti, BIANCANEVE. Still hunting that one down . . .

The Green Arrow, the brooding, grim version. I'd like to see Buck Rogers redone. I'm happy to hear that they are making a movie of Alan Moore's Watchmen.
Out comics on current release I would love to see District X on the screen.

Power Man and Iron Fist, set in the 70s.

Well a couple come to mind.

First, Garth Ennis' Preacher. Today's political atmosphere is probably wrong for this, but if Sin City could get made
--anything's possible.

Second, even though I've only read the first few, David Lapham's Stray Bullets series seemed like it would be perfect for, like an HBO series or something.

john oak dalton,
I almost posted Power-Man and Iron Fist too, but I'd be afraid they would turn it into a comedy with Owen Wilson.

In honor of Curt's "Drac month" how about...

Man-Bat!

Cerebus the Aarvark

Sin City--but they already did it and a damn fine job.

So I'd move onto Preacher after that. If they thwarted me there I might try a Master of Kung Fu.

Hands down, the Green Hornet and The Shadow. I was so bummed that they botched The Shadow before. The movie had promise and some of the right ingredients, but just didn't gell. And while I'm on the topic, how come they never cast voluptuous women when H'wood tries to re-do these things (e.g., Penelope Ann Miller in The Shadow, Gwynneth Paltrow in Sky Captain)? Have to give Disney credit for casting Jennifer Connelly in The Rocketeer, though. I'd love to redo that, too. If they just redid the ending to include some high-speed "rocketerring" instead of a slow moving blimp, that movie could be saved.

About the women, yes I agree with rogerrmjet. Kudos, though, to the makers of the two Zorro flicks of late. Catherine Zeta-Jones is the femme fatale of the day, nothing better.
