"Poll question: Now that Watchmen is done, what's the next "unfilmable" comic movie?"
Mon Mar-02-09 12:55 PM by KneelB4Me

          

For the longest, Watchmen was considered to be unfilmable, or at least, unable to be filmed correctly. Now, for better or worse, it's been done and available for us to pass judgment on shortly. What's the next great comic story that is unlikely to be made?

Dark Knight Returns seems like it's just begging to be made into a movie, albeit with plenty of tweaking to the plot.

don't know if it's still in the works but I'd prefer a tv show rather than a movie. Dogma is probably the closest u can get to a film adaptation

into a great movie.

The problem is, a lot of the effectiveness of the story is based on knowing the extensive history of each character (and not just Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman). That type of shit is anathema to Hollywood.

But it would probably require a completely new script by Gaiman, as opposed to your typical comic book adaptation. Animation might be a good look, too.

Really, I don't think these films can work.

First off, there is too much legal stuff from preventing these from being made. Of course, we all want continuity but can it happen? Can all the same actors from the individual films (assuming all the individual films will be made) be cast in the team movie? Will the studios allow their actors to reprise their roles in films by other studios?

Point two, it's gonna be a clusterfuck. I have my doubts whether or not all these superheroes together will make a good film.

So it goes.

I don't even know if there's even a big enough audience. Not even how they'd try to shoot it. It works way too well at Ware wrote it. It's not even worth trying.

Too many characters, back story/origins pieced together over dozens of issues, stories almost always "start in the middle."

You ***MIGHT*** be able to make an interesting TVseries with some of the one-shots, but even in that case the series would be waaaay to expensive to do well.

There's only like three comic book writers on the planet that have figured out how to use the characters correctly. Keep them the fuck away from Hollywood screen-writers.

(assuming animation is fair game here)

Maus is like the Anti-Watchmen... It doesn't hot dog around with the medium AT ALL. It's pure, no-frills storytelling. I remember hearing an anecdote where someone complimented Spiegelman on a particular visual - I want to say it was a caption in the form of a ticket stub or something - and he just took it out completely, because the fact that someone mentioned it means it stuck out. He didn't want anything distracting from the story.

(when talking about being a house full of cats while his character was still a mouse),
depend completely upon the fact that the story is being told in first person as a cartoonist.

i think it wouldn't work in the same way that "breakfast of champions" didn't translate to film.

The Guardian and Klarion series would both make good movies. Films about Frankenstein and Bulleteer are certainly doable. Shining Knight certainly lends itself to film, but wasn't very good as a series.

75. "They 're about to butcher my favorite comic"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I just finished all 10 books of Y: The Last man and it blew me away from beginning to end.

Now is see this:http://www.slashfilm.com/2008/07/22/dj-carusos-y-the-last-man-in-summer-2010/ ... and this... http://www.slashfilm.com/2008/07/30/alicia-keys-as-agent-355-in-y-the-last-man/

The book is so epic and complex that they couldn't possibly fit it into a movie...Even a trilogy would seem whack.The only way it could work would be in a television show format... An HBO type show with production values on par with shows like Carnivale and True Blood. I mean Brian K. Vaughan did an excellent job on Lost and is a proven writer but the director is who I'm worried about; Disturbia and Eagle Eye? So , basically they gonna cast Shia Leboeuf as Yorick?

I really enjoyed Watchmen, despite reading the graphic novel, but Y is a different animal because the movie would be sold through the interaction between actors.Not visuals. And the fact that they already got non-real-actors like Lee lee in mind,further lets me know that this going to be a donkey show on celluloid.

He's at that perfect stage of man-boyness where Yorick starts out. I'm getting kind of sick of him being in everything, though, lol.

But I do agree that it needs to be an HBO series; not even a trilogy could do it justice.
