No kidding.  Storm is an interesting character in the comics; but in the movies, it's like she has no personality at all.

I think he means you took Ben's avatar.

I'm glad that Hallie Berry will be gone from X-Men 3.  The problem I see for the franchise is that, eventually, the cast will become too big to properly manage.  Think about it, by the end of X2, the recurring characters are: Cyclops, Wolverine, Professor X, Nightcrawler, Storm, Jean Grey, Rogue, Magneto, Mystique, Iceman, and Pyro.  I assume they'll probably add one or two new heroes or villians in X3. 

As we saw in X2, certain characters naturally are going to get less screentime (Cyclops, Storm).  I think Hugh Jackman kinda has to return to the series, if not in X3 then for X4 (crosses fingers).  The X-Men series made Jackman a star, and I think he knows that well enough not to turn his back on it.  Beside, Wolverine draws in the fairweather movie audience.

Let me paraphrase a review of X-men2 from The New Yorker:

"The only good thing in this movie was Hugh Jackman. Hopefully, one day they will write a movie worthy of his talent."

I agree. Him and the ever-so-sexy Alan Cummings.

Bryan Singer has found his Superman.  I said that Bryan Singer has jumped director ships.  He's directing Superman instead of X3.  When news has been confirmed that Superman coming out in 2006 will be played by Brandon Routh.  He's only 25 and is hardly known.

Also, the Fantastic Four cast has also been released. Michael Chiklis (Benjamin J. Grimm, AKA 'The Thing'), Ioan Gruffudd (Reed Richards, AKA 'Mr. Fantastic'), Jessica Alba (Sue Storm, AKA 'The Invisible Girl'), Chris Evans (Johnny Storm, AKA 'The Human Torch'), Julian McMahon (Dr. Doom), Kerry Washington (Alicia Masters), Maria Menounos

Routh is actually younger than Tom Welling from Smallville, even though he's apparently playing the grown-up Superman.

He looks perfect for the role.

I noticed all the comic books discussed here are all super heroes, how about comic books like Asterix and TinTin. I know Asterix has been made into films. Anyone has any thoughts on them?

Wow, Superman has such a low vote, I guess that's because its latest production is not as recent as Spiderman.  My high school teacher called Superman a pussy cos he wears his underpants outside of his pants. Screw him! Most superheroes do anyway!

I heard Wes Anderson may be directing a TinTin movie produced by Spielberg. I doubt it since Anderson likes to do his own original work but an adaptation isn't out of the question.

I liked the Spider-Man Movie the best but I just thought it was the best made movie of all the choices up there.

The Punisher wasn't that bad also, can't believe it's not on the list.

This is just a rumour. Nothing's been announced so all there is right now is speculation about who would be most adequate. But as I said, I doubt that Anderson will do this.

I just saw Elektra and it is okay.  A little bit better than Daredevil.  I was able to see the trailer for the Fantastic Four.  The look of the trailer reminded of the first time I saw the trailer for the first Spider-man movie.  I look at it as a good sign.

Blade Trinity was a much of a let down.  It was okay, but I wish there was gory as Blade II, if not more.

I'd like to see Elektra. Even though I'll assume it won't be the best movie. I don't know that I want to see Fantastic Four though. And Fryfan: Blade Trinity didn't have as much gore. Oh my god! That's the goriest movie I've ever seen!

It wasn't as gory as Blade II.  Snipes even admitted on a "Making Of" speical that Blade Trinity wasn't as gory as Blade II.

I just saw Superman Returns.  It was okay, I just hope in the sequel they have Superman fight Brainiac, Doomsday or Darkseid for a change.

Ben AfFleck will be wearing the Superman suit this year in Hollywoodland, when he stars as George Reeves.  He messes up Daredevil and now the Man of Steel.

Yes, I'm aware.  Why do you think I said that Ben Affleck stars as "George Reeves"?  It was that clear.  It's a biopic about the mysterious death of actor George Reeves, best known for playing Superman in the 1950's TV show.  All I meant is that Affleck dressed as Superman under any condition taints the superhero.

Quoted for truth. Also, where's Batman Begins, which is the best adaptation of the Batman mythos in a live-action feature, and Hellboy, also another great adaptation?

ive only just found this thread but HANDS DOWN - NO COMPARISONS - NOTHING EVEN COMES CLOSE when your talkin about comic to movie adaptations - SIN CITY WINS - im not just saying this cause super hereos are lame but because its the closest visual representation of a comic ive ever seen. frank miller is the shit - i just hope they dont fuck up '300' when they make that into a movie though they prob will.

How the hell can you include Batman AND Batman Returns and not Batman Begins.

And The Hulk? please..

Sin City needs to be in there. Wait a minute, I just realised, this thread was created before Sin City and Batman Begins was out. oops.

This is the comic book based movie thread right?

I saw Ghostrider and it was great.  I never read any of the comics, but I liked this film.


He's the cast for The Dark Knight, sequel to Batman Begins

Christian Bale (Bruce Wayne, AKA Batman), Heath Ledger (The Joker), Michael Caine (Alfred Pennyworth), Aaron Eckhart (Harvey Dent), Morgan Freeman (Lucius Fox), Gary Oldman (Jim Gordon)

Ledger as the Joker is interesting  I would've gone with Crispin Glover just because he'd make an unique Joker.
