damn...roger corman did that flick?  Should a known it would sink.

i remember seeing the trailer and gonig "What the FUCK just happened?"  good old VHS rental days.  you rent a regular drama and roger corman's final four shows up.  1/4 of the budget spent on the trailer and you get teenage guys like me going "uh...so obviously someone at marvel fucked up."

I watched as much as I could last night (about a half hour) before I walked away in disgust.

So, the day I finish my latest screenplay, not one but TWO major screenwriters get booted from their respective superhero movies. (Whedon got booted from Wonder Woman.)

What does this bode?

Quote from: David Goyer
Well, I've been waiting a few months to relate this news -- but I am sad to say that my version of The Flash is dead at WB. The God's honest truth is that WB and myself simply couldn't agree on what would make for a cool Flash film. I'm quite proud of the screenplay I turned it. I threw my heart into it and I genuinely think it would've been the basis of a ground-breaking film. But as of now, the studio is heading off in a completely different direction. I expect you'll hear of some new developments on that front shortly.

It means you're on track to succeed where they failed.

Unless they make a movie about The Tick, then you're right.

Because I brought it up in another thread, the top five super hero movies of all time!

This is off the top of my head, and really I'm just opening up the discussion of what's good and bad about super hero movies/comic book adaptations.

In no particular order, superhero movies that are awesome:

--Superman II
--Batman (1989, Tim Burton)
--Iron Man
--Darkman
--Batman Begins

Honorable Mentions:
--Spider-Man (2002, Sam Raimi)
--X2 (Bryan Singer)

Wow... Iron Man ranks above Batman Begins?  I am going to have to see this...

Though I would reorder that list somewhat, I'll have to agree to it.  Spiderman and X-Men have become so tainted by their sequels, that I wouldn't put them in the honorable mention category. 

And...now it's time to see Superman II again.  That really is the Wrath of Khan of the superhero movie genre.

Batman Begins and Iron Man are apples and oranges really which is why I said "no particular order." They're two very different movies

Superman II is ridiculously good. Have you seen the Richard Donner cut?

I have.

I've always loved it, really.  Even before I knew there was a secret version.

And let's make it interesting by listing out RC's five WORST super hero movies . . .

--X3
--Fantastic Four (Roger Corman version though the new one's aren't much better)
--The Punisher (1989 Dolph Lundgren version, though again . . . the new one left something to be desired.)
--Spider-Man 3
--Ghost Rider

Spider-man 3 can't be that bad to be the on the five worst list. Was it good? No. But was it that bad? I really doubt it.

In fact, I would put 2003's The Hulk on that list instead of Spider-man 3.
