Comics Marvel SHOULD be Making Into Movies
Guardians Schmuardians . . .
At Comic-Con 2012 Marvel has announced that their upcoming movies will be Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Iron Man 3, Guardians of The Galaxy and Ant-Man.
But we here at SciFiMovieHype.com says Guardians Schmuardians . . .
How many dull Captain America movies can one stomach? How about making some of these below comics into movies instead?
An alien royal family with superpowers and very bad hair days which makes them exactly like that other royal family! First appearance: issue # 45 of Fantastic Four (December 1965).
Guardians of the Galaxy
We’re talking here about the ‘Seventies lineup instead of the 2008 “reboot”. The original team had no talking raccoons, but did have a guy made out of a diamond and an astronaut who’ll die if he takes off his spacesuit (how does he poop then? we don’t know). How cool is that? First appearance: Marvel Super-Heroes #18 (Jan. 1969).
Captain America, the Human Torch and Prince Namor fight the Nazis during WWII. What more do you want? First appearance: The Avengers #71 (December 1969).
Iron Fist, like, knows kung fu and wears a spiffy green and yellow outfit. Works best when teamed up with Luke Cage, the kick ass blaxploitation superhero whose surname Nicolas Kim Coppola borrowed. First appearance: Marvel Premiere #15 (May 1974).
S.H.I.E.L.D. and its director has already appeared in several of the recent Marvel movies as well as a spectacularly crap 1998 TV movie with David Hasselhoff as Nick Fury instead of Samuel L. Jackson. We say give Jackson a whole movie in which to chew cigars and the scenery! First appearance: Strange Tales #135 (Aug. 1965).
We don’t think Ms. Marvel is such a great action heroine. We just want someone to prance about in that costume for a whole movie, that’s all! First appearance: Ms. Marvel #1 (January 1977).
We’re not particularly fans of Doctor Strange (heresy, we know) but we just want to see who’ll be willing to appear in that costume and what their pay check will be for doing so! First appearance: Strange Tales #110 (July 1963).
