What Would Stan Do?

So we all know by now that Marvel Entertainment has half a billion in cash from Merrill Lynch to make movies, as well as a Paramount distribution deal.

So what movies from their library of characters should they make?

Here's my vote...

(And yes, we've talked about this before. I want Marvel input this time okay?)

Brother Voodoo!
Batroc the leaper (as an anti-hero).
A cyberpunk action flick involving Herbie the robot and Machine Man (possibly as a love interest - ewwwww.

Okay, for real now...
Dr. Strange starring Johnny Depp or Guy Pearce.
Daredevil with Guy Pearce
Iron Man with Johnny Depp.
Morbius starring Benico del Toro

We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.
As soon as we acknowledge
this Supreme Designer/Architect,
Who has erected the beauteous
fabric of the universe, our minds
must necessarily be ravished with
wonder at this infinate goodness,
wisdom and power.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
Dr. Howdy

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."

Thought & Humor - may you get on a bus filled with the Japanese Sumo Wrestling Team, be the sole survivor of a terrible accident on a lonely backwoods highway; but be trapped underneath all those crushing, sweaty, rotting, fluid-oozing corpses...and have to EAT your way out. Spam me will ya!

JDC - you're just too sick.

I knew a girl from Nantucket...

Did I mention the softcore watersports line starring Hydroman and Namor?

JDC - change your meds.

Hmm, I'd love to take a stab at She-Hulk, Cloak and Dagger, The Micronauts or a Nightcrawler spinoff.

The Defenders--my lineup would be Dr. Strange, Hulk, Silver Surfer, Sub-Mariner, Valkyrie, Hellcat, and Nighthawk.
