What comic book adaptation would YOU like to see
AS I said in another post, I'm really looking forward to another Punisher flick with Tom Jane still in the lead, a NY setting, and an even closer adaptation of Ennis' "Welcome Back Frank" story line (the video game was probably as close as I'll get).

While on the topic of Ennis, I think that Preacher could make for a great film, and maybe an even better HBO miniseries.

Maybe after a few more Sin City and Batman films we can see a big screen version of The Dark Knight Returns, and I'm still holding out hope for The Watchmen.

Oh, and I'd like to see Ang Lee's Hulk sequel, but something tells me that'll never happen.

Hulk 2 is being made. Punisher 2 is being made. Sin City 2 is being made... I don't know what else. Maybe a GOOD verison of Captain America.

Hulk 2 won't be Ang Lee's Hulk, it's going to be a more "mainstream" Hulk.

So it'll probably suck. Avengers would be cool, if nigh on impossible. Power Pack might make a good family movie. Cloak and Dagger could be cool as well, providing it was suitably themed.

Iron Man is being done, or so I read. Thor would be a tough sell. They already blew Spider-Man by casting Toby Wooden Boy. I nearly jumped for joy when I heard that Jake Gyllenhaal might be replacing him for Spidey 2, but of course it never happened.

I've always been happy with Toby, and think Genlynhall would've been all wrong...BUT after I heard Topher Grace was originally considered, I decided he was my top choice. The rumours state that he's playing Venom in the next one, which means they changed the character into more of a doppleganger and makes me happy. Venom's backstory is more than lame, but I think in a lot of ways he is THE ideal Spiderman villian, seeing that his abilities match Spideys and his goal is to make Peter Parker's life a living hell.

Seriously though, if you haven't read Preacher, you should all consider it. It's really that good.

Good choices Aaron. There's been talk for decades about Arnold being interested in a Doc Savage flick. I think G. Del Toro would get my vote as director, based on Hellboy.

Ghost Rider looks really, really bad so far.

Speaking of Del Toro, he's in talks of directing that Halo movie that's being released in 2007.

Thanks Gabe.

I think Arnold is a little ""long in the tooth" for the role of Doc Savage. I would like to maybe see Viggo take a stab at it. If handled right, he could be another "Indiana Jones" style hero. Casting "The Spirit" is a lot trickier... I would love to see Bruce Campbell take the role with Alex Désert (Becker) as his sidekick Ebony. I left out the Green Hornet.... Kevin Smith was supposedly penning a script for that one.

I had heard awhile back that there would be a Silver Surfer movie, but I don't expect it will actually get made.

A waste of money would be to make a Silver Surfer movie, Submariner, Captain America, Thor, Dr. Strange and any other minor Marvel character movie that's in the planning stages.
Some of the above mentioned characters are popular, but I just don't see Hollywood writers bringing them to the big screen with a decent story/script.  
They screwed up Hulk. The X-Men is okay, but could've been sooo much better.  Same thing with the Blade movies.  Both Punisher and Daredevil were awful.  Anyone seeign a trend here?  LOL
Not all characters are meant to be brought to life on the big screen.
An Avengers or Justice League movie would cost too much and on top of that the costumes probably wouldn't look right...and they'd have to stick them in black leather. LOL

While it wasn't great, I kind of liked Daredevil.

Daredevil was alright.

I thought Daredevil was a very good comic book adaptation. I think there was a backlash against Ben Affleck and his over-exposure in the media. He did a great job in the role and I hope he gets the chance to revisit the character in the future.

I kind of agree with Aaron.  A lot of the negativity towards Daredevil had to do with Affleck.  However, some of the CGI was really cheesy on the big screen.  It's not so bad on DVD though.

My negativity toward Daredevil has to do with the poor acting, dialogue, fight choreography, soundtrack, effects and casting decisions (I honestly felt it was the worst movie I saw the entire year of 2004, and yes, har dee har, I see plenty)

That said, I'd like to see Hellblazer.

If anyone says "Constantine!" I will emasculate them.
Yes, females, too.

Iron Man. A spoiled rich kid gets passed over to run the family biz. So he goes off to do reporting in some war torn country and is hurt. He builds the suit of armor to keep alive and starts to take back Stark Enterprises. Dealing more with the fact he makes money off the blood of others
