Well, at least Favreu is doing the right thing on how he's handling for the Iron Man movie.
Agreed. While he might not have been an originall fan---I'm sure he's got a huge collection of Iron Man stories that he's gotta read. And on top of the back research---he's soliciting fans for help.Well, at least Favreu is doing the right thing on how he's handling for the Iron Man movie.
Bingo.I think the other problem is that Marvel is going for whatever directors they can grab. And what's sad is that these directors have no passion for the material (example---Ratner).
That's what hurts the films. You don't need to be an expert....just passionate. When the director doesn't have a passion for the project---it suffers. Because then you don't have that connection like you do in the comics. A director reads that Elektra is a sexy ninja.....and that's the route he takes. He doesn't bother with the internal struggle she goes thru between what she wants and what she feels she must do. Blah blah blah.......
I read an article from the F4 director saying that he grew up reading the book and since there was so much history with the group that he wanted to follow the UFF storyline to introduce people to the characters and origins. Where was the UFF? Instead the fans get hype....not substance.
cap, thor, and nick are all getting there own movies and they should be greatI mean seriously---Ghost Rider over Capt America? Elektra over a Nick Fury/S.H.I.E.L.D? Ant-Man instead of Thor? And ****ing Deathlok over anybody else? I mean WTF?
I would say it sucked because of the way the theatrical version was arranged. The director's cut is so much better it's sad.Daredevil sucked, mostly because of Ben Affleck's lack of acting skills or ability to portray emotion with his one expression that he uses for every situation in every film he's been a part of.
I beg to differ from the consensus.I agree with everyone else. Less movies about characters unknown to the general public, more about characters that people at least have a general acknowledgement of.
Exactly. The fact that no one recognizes these characters actually may allow directors to take more liberties with the property to allow them to take the life of their own you say they do. For many people, Blade was first and foremost, a Wesley Snipes vehicle of bad-assery featuring a gun-toting sword-slinging vampire hunter and nothing else --- you couldn't see past Wesley Snipes trading in his stock tough guy act, but it worked.Not every casual viewer who watches a "movie based on a comic book" is watching it because it's a "comic book movie". Certain characters and concepts may well be able to take on a life of their own, beyond their reputation as comic characters.
Well yes, he could have, but the point I'm trying to make (supplementary to compound's own point) is that people don't need to be told a movie has been adapted from 'iconic legendary OMG source material' to decide to see it.Then again, if Wesley Snipes just wanted to be a badass vampire hunter, he couldve been one without buying the Blade rights.
