15 Bravest Creative Decisions In Comic Book Movie History
Ultra ballsy ideas that went against the grain and somehow worked.
Making a comic book movie is so much more challenging than just adapting any regular book: comic book fans are famous for their near-insane level of devotion to their most beloved characters, and their unrivaled ability to nitpick everything from plot points to the most mundane details hidden in the background. As a result, it's typically the most meticulous and respectful filmmakers who rise to the top of the pile, while those who don't care to indulge the fanboys end up on the receiving end of hateful Internet bile. That said, sometimes a creative choice is just a huge, even irresponsible gamble, regardless of the talents of the people involved. Sometimes no matter how skillful and respected the writer or director might be, it's just difficult to see how an idea can work, though of course, only when the lights go down and the movie starts do we find out once and for all. Some of these ballsy ideas went against the grain and worked, while others were admirable failures, and some just outright sucked, but they all at least earn a point for their ridiculous, often idiotic bravery, even if fans didn't always appreciate the effort.
