Okay so obviously I'm not really qualified to comment on comics cos I don't read many... :unsure: but I can't help noticing the flaws in how they're translated into film, just on the biggest two out recently Spiderman 3 and Superman Returns I could write about 10 volumes of "things Sam Rami should not have done" and slightly less on superman, cos I have to admit, even though there aren't any actual villains for superman to fight its a pretty decent movie. Spidey shoehorned in enough villains(who had actual powers and could actually hurt Spidey, not just a rock) that you forget who's in it until they're on screen, and superman has one bald criminal genius (that he could under normal circumstances, morals excluded rip into individual strands of DNA). The result, Spiderman 3, not good, Superman returns Quite good. The reason? Topher Grace is poop and Kevin Spacy is not.


So looking ahead next year we'll see a new Batman film, Shazam!(no really, it is called that) The incredible hulk and Iron man. Woo and double Woo. Both Iron man and batman I expect to be good, but what after that? DC has hinted at wonder woman(Mary Elizabeth Winstead, sadly not involved so far), green lantern and The flash. Marvel has confirmed (not counting the sequels and spin offs like wolverine and venom or the stuff they'll get around to maybe sometime before I'm 30) Ant-Man, Captain America and Thor for 2009, Nick Fury Agent of SHAFT, sorry SHIELD after those with presumably Samuel Jackson as Fury(he's in Iron Man as Fury supposedly) and then an avengers movie sometime after that.


So tracking back a little, Ant man? ANT MAN? "Oh Hi there ant man, so you can command ants... yeah good luck stopping Ultron, doctor doom or lets face it even frickin Squirrel girl with that. Oh your wife can shrink as well. Only when you haven't beat her up and put her in hospital? Thats super." but no they've second guessed me(well not me personally, but the geeks like me) and they're giving it to Edgar Write to direct, so chances are I won't have to make fun of it, cos it will make fun of it for me. :P


Still no confirmation of the two I want to see Deadpool and Super girl- though I want everyone to know in advance right now that if the next Superman film has her show up after a cosmic detour, mistake Superman's illegitimate kid for him and try to fulfil her duty as her cousin's guardian(by abducting his son) before getting into a fight with Superman and resolving the issue in the first act before teaming up to fight Doomsday, Zod, Bizaro, Metalo, or Cheerio then I win a million told you so points.
