Hello interweb, Nate here. So these past three weeks I have been busy and having trouble keeping up with my posts. Two weeks ago I helped out with my church’s VBS, last week was my church’s youth group trip, and this week I’m helping with my grandparents VBS. So for today’s post (whoch should have been yesterday’s) I’m just doing a simple top 5 list. This list was inspired because I recently thought of some awesome comics that would be totally BA as a live action movie. The rules are below, now lets get to the list.
See my other top 10s (or 5s) here.
- Must be a movie n0t yet made or haven’t been announced.
- DC or Marvel only
- We’re talking live-action here, not animated or CGI movie
#10 – Blue Beetle
The Blue Beetle I’m specifically talking about here is Jaime Reyes (pronounced either hi-me or hi-may and ray-us) as he’s the current person to don the mantle and my personal favorite. A movie with Jaime could be very interesting, I’m not quite sure how they would do it but it would definitely involve the Reach trying to use the Scarab to control Jaime or something like that.
#9 – Deathstroke
Deathstroke! A movie around Deathstroke would also be the coolest thing ever. Again, I’m not sure how they would do it but I just mainly put this on the list because I would really want to see a live action Deathstroke.
#8 – Nightwing
I would be so willing to throw my money at the theaters to see a Nightwing movie. Dick Grayson is a great Robin and once he became Nightwing he went from goofy to BA. So a movie involving this guy is one most people would probably check out.
#7 – Green Arrow
Take Arrow, take a few of the characters and mess around with the story a little to get a few hours, instant money maker.
#6 – Superman VS Doomsday
OK, before was just a couple suggestions for movies that would be cool to see, now we’re getting to the good stuff. Ever since the Death of Superman, Doomsday has been one of the most famous supervillains. And I know what your thinking: “But Nate, we already got an animated movie of this why do we need a live action?”. Because everything’s 10x better live action! Especially superheroes.
#5 – Static Shock
Static I feel is a underrated character yet I absolutely love this guy. For those of you who don’t know, Static Shock is about an African-American kid named Virgil Hawkins who lived in a bad neighborhood and found himself in the middle of a gang war. The police showed up and used an untested tear gas on the gangs which actually killed most of them with a small percentage mutating into bang babies and gaining meta human abilities. Virgil gain powers over electromagnetism and named himself Static.
Now Static has had popularity problems as outside of his cartoon show in the early 2000s, his most recent comics in the New 52 cancelled and I’m not actually quite sure where Virgil is right now. None the less, I would picture this movie having a Spider-man like vibe as Virgil often cracked jokes when being a superhero similar to Spidey and on top of that he is also a teenager, so possibilities. The only big difference I can see between Spider-man and Static Shock is that Spider-man is more of a fun movie while a Static Shock movie might get a little more into things like gang wars and things like that.
#4 – Civil War
OK, for those of you who does not know this story line let me quickly explain it to you. Civil War is when Ironman and Captain America gets in a fight about whether or not superheroes’ true identities should be hidden or not. This leads to half of the Marvel universe fighting for one side and the other fighting for the other side. And sense people like seeing their favorite heroes face off, who wouldn’t see it? The only problem with this movie that I can see is that Spider-man plays a big part in the story, and if Sony won’t even allow Spider-man to make a cameo in the Avengers, I doubt they’d let him be a major character in a full length movie with the other Marvel heroes.
#3 – Aquaman
Aquaman has really got a lot of heat about being really lame for some reason and is a very underrated superhero. But he is actually really BA, especially in the New 52 and just imagine the type of movie you could make with that. The setting would obviously be Atlantis, and they could CGI a few giant sea monsters in there. I think they could do it.
#2 – Teen Titans
I admit, this pick is mostly out of nostalgia for the cartoon series that came out in the 2000s but I honestly think this would make for a really good movie, and there are several options I can see. The creators could either try and get people to watch it out of nostalgia by adding the team from the cartoons (Robin, Cyborg, Beast Boy, Raven, and Starfire), or they could pick a diffrent team as those aren’t the only Teen Titans out there. But I think the best way to go with this is to just pick the team from the show (plus optionally adding Speedy and Kid Flash sense they where present on that specific team in the comics) and focus on the Trigon arc.
#1 – Batman Beyond
If I post this and then immediately find out that this movie is out, than TAKE MY MONEY!!!!! Seriously, it’s Batman in the future, how could you go wrong with that. And imaging the possibilities with designing the live action batsuit.
