Daredevil was always a great character. I though Frank Miller's initial run was great with Elektra vs DD vs Bullseye. BUT for me, the best DD storyline ever was Born Again (#227-234 or so). Frank Miller's second run and it honestly made me want to write.
Yes and Yes.
Man, did the movie not only BUTCHER the Elektra storyline (They were so 180 degrees on it, that the only thing they got right was the shot of Elektra getting skewered), but they also pooched the chance for a proper BORN AGAIN movie as a sequel.
Oh well, at least INCREDIBLE HULK showed it's possible to just ignore the previous.
Anyway, the correct answer to the question "what comic book character/series would you like to see on the big screen?" is, obviously, BOOSTER GOLD.
I loved Ghost Rider as a kid. I hated the idea of Nicholas Cage as Johnny Blaze, and I hated it more when I saw the movie. Just something about the hairplugs, and the huge schnauz....good actor though for different roles
Come on boys, four pages and no Wonder Woman. Too bad the Josh Whedon direction got shut down. Super strong, big tracks o' land, thigh high boots, 'magic' lariot, and invisible plane. Do not pass go, here is my $12.00
On the comic book movie subject, check out this link lol:
The Immortal Iron Fist. I always thought the character was lame, then a friend loaned me vol 1 of the new series and it turned out to be great. There is supposedly a movie version stuck in development hell right now.
Green Lantern would be another pick. But I think it may work better as a TV series, if for no other reason than to give it adequate time to deal with all the complexities and interesting elements of the Green Lantern Corps -- make it an ensemble show and use Hal, John, Guy, Kilowog and even Gnort
But yes, the one I've been waiting for is Wonder Woman. I haven't bought a WW comic in a few years, but I guess growing up on reruns of the old Lynda Carter show left an impression, because she remains one of my favourite characters.
And Guy is right -- Dr. Horrible was gold. Here's hoping they release a DVD soon.
