Comic book movies are everywhere these days, releasing at a rate of one or two every three months like clockwork. They have huge investment, A-list stars, massive production values and some are even considered Oscar worthy.
With the cinematic universe Marvel has woven (and DC has tried to emulate), these movies are all intertwined now, and as such everything is carefully planned, plotted and choreographed. There’s no more room for random one-offs like there was in the past, although in many ways this had led to greater quality productions, not least because these movies are now attractive prospects to Hollywood’s finest and production companies will pay for stellar special effects.
However, some movies missed this boat and then some. A lot of adaptations out there just didn’t get as much love the first time around, and deserve another shot. They have fantastic stories to tell, even if a lot of them fumbled the delivery.
We’d all love to see a Fantastic Four movie done right but after three stinkers, but they're practically guaranteed to get remade. There are others, though, who may not be so fortunate - even if they deserve another shot in the spotlight.
