I know we've got threads on the big comic book adaptation movies: Spider-Man, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman. Still, It could be useful to have a thread where we can have general discussion on superhero movies. Why some are good. Why some suck. How they've evolved, and what we've got to look forward to.

I kick it off with two bits of superhero movie news.

First, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer:


--- Quote ---In the sequel, the enigmatic, intergalactic herald, The Silver Surfer, comes to Earth to prepare it for destruction. As the Silver Surfer races around the globe wreaking havoc, Reed, Sue, Johnny and Ben must unravel the mystery of The Silver Surfer and confront the surprising return of their mortal enemy, Dr. Doom, before all hope is lost.

The first FF was lukewarm, but interesting. It kind of wandered about and went nowhere. Still. Th acting was cool, the "funny" bits were sort of funny, and Jessica Alba was hot. As far as a sequel goes, I'd love to see what they do with a live-action Galactus.

Next, The Incredible Hulk news, Dominic Purcell of TV's Prison Break may be inheriting the Bruce Banner role from Eric Bana. I like the first Hulk movie. It was pretty interesting, though kind of somber and boring in spots. Still, I appreciate what they were trying to do. Word now is that the sequel will be a "re-imagining" of the story, which means they're going to forget the first movie and start from scratch.

You and I are the only people who liked the first Hulk movie. 

As far as FF:  ...save me...

In my book, that's a good idea.  I hated the first one and fell asleep several times.  But then...maybe that's why I hated it.

Matt:
Again, I really liked The Hulk, but I thought it tried to do too much and that was its weakness. If it has focused itself a bit more, it could've been much stronger.

And honestly, RC, the first Fantastic Four movie sucked balls.

Also, I'm gonna toss in the rumor that since Legendary Pictures and Warner Brothers are in charge and control both Superman and Batman, there is a  possibility of a Batman/Superman movie. Christian Bale and Christopher Nolan would love to, but Brandon Routh doesn't want them to fight. Fuck Routh, I say, and bring on the Dark Knight pain!

I liked it for what is was . . . which I'll admit was a shitty movie.
