Descent Of Angels

I was sat thinking the other day, and this idea for what could possibly the most epic 'war' film in existence popped into my head.

The Battle of Heaven.
Now, I am a die hard atheist personally, but the mythology and story of The Bible, God, and Lucifer is a very deep tale.
If the film didn't focus around God, but instead between Archangel Michael and Lucifer and how one disagreed with God giving Man free will and insisting the angels bow to Man the other followed Him. Introduce the other princes of Hell, Leviathan, Belail, and Satan. Have Satan be the one who finally pushes Lucifer into going to war, and Belail as unsure on which side to take, but eventually having Satan convince him to open the Gates of Heaven, allowing for the final battle between Michael and Lucifer, resulting in Michael casting Lucifer from Heaven, and God banishing the four into Hell. Finally have Michael visit Lucifer in Hell, and mockingly hand him a twisted crown, telling him he could finally rule. Michael leaves and Lucifer utters the closing words of the film "Better to rule in Hell, than serve in Heaven..."

Just a crazy idea that popped into my head!

Re: Decent Of Angels

Decent of Angels?

Decent?

I thought angels were supposed to be good, no almost perfect beings!

But decent?

Wow, talk about falling short of God's expectations.

Re: Decent Of Angels

I love this idea. And ancient action epics are all the rage these days.

But portraying Lucifer even a little bit sympathetically would make Evangelicals **** a brick.

When we read an excerpt from Paradise Lost at school, I suggested that Lucifer could be portrayed as simply being a figure of rebellion who didn't want to live under God's oppressive rule, and not necessarily as the source of all evil. Even my teacher (who's an atheist) seemed pretty shocked by the notion.

This is exactly what the comic series is about!


Read it. It's awesome.

Happy now?
Moan, *****, whine, complain that's all I get...

Talk about falling short of MY expectations...

And thus you have discovered my entire reason for being.



I got the idea because I have been reading the Warhammer 40,000 Horus Heresy novel series, and the main story has a very large similarity with the War in Heaven. Once one of the most favoured angels of God (favoured Primarchs of the Emperor), he fell from grace as his supreme self-confidence turned into arrogance. He then led many angels (the Traitor Legions) to fight against God (the Emperor) in a war in Heaven (the Horus Heresy).
There was a character in the books called Erebus, a chaplain, whose legion had turned away from the Emperor long before Horus ever did, and he was the one to influence Horus into switching sides. That is the kind of role I see Satan playing, the manipulator who corrupts Lucifer and fans his embers of doubt into a raging inferno.

I had this idea a while back, and considered posting it, but then realised a board member who is no longer with us, I shall call him Gavericker, obviously not his real name, might have had an aneurysm.
Which could have been funny.
Curse my indecisiveness.....

Re: Decent Of Angels

It would be great if done right. However, they'd find some way to **** it up, be it casting Ja Rule as Lucifer or Ben Affleck as God.

Ben Affleck would be an awesome God.

Not for this movie, mind you, but STILL. The patent absurdity of it would be worth an entire movie.

If only they did this three years ago. They could call it Bennifer Almighty.
