Which current movie is the best out of the Marvel series?
I'd have to say, currently......"X-2." They've really done an outstanding job of interpreting the comic book for the films. I'd like to see them make Magneto's costume a little more colorful (as in the comics), but all n' all, it's hard to complain. I was really impressed with the screen version of Nightcrawler. The New X-Men, created in 1975, were always movie friendly. The storylines by Chris Claremont were always very complex and soap-opera-ish........just taylor-made for today's movie audience. The original X-Men, created in 1963, are really closer in spirit to the Fantastic Four......and since the Fab 4 have got a film in the works, it made sense to adapt the new X-Men. Still, I'd like to see The Beast in the future. "Spider-Man" was great, too.......a Spidey/X-Men team up would be outstanding!!

I'd like to see more villians in the future. Can't you just see "The Blob" on the big screen?? :D Or "Unus, the Untouchable"?
I would like to see a Fantastic Four movie




The blob could be played by?

I agree with you Gal. I wished all comic book movies was as good as X:2. I just finished watching the animated HULK DVD that came out a couple of weeks ago. It was from the mid 90s animated HULK series. I was ok but nothing to write home about. It also contained the first HULK cartoon from 1966. Things sure have came a long way since then. :laugh: I bet you would like the animation Gal. Stan Lee did a little intro before the show and said that Jack Kirby drew it up himself. Check it out if you get the chance.
Rap,

Well, you'd have to find somebody unbelievably fat....lol......or the makeup crew would have it's hands full!! I imagine if they could handle creating Jabba the Hut back in 1983, they could figure something out in 2003! It would be interesting to see.......maybe it would be partly done with CGI.

My favorite were the Hulk cartoons on Saturday mornings. I think they were part of the "Spidey and Friends" thing that Gal mentioned. Anyway, there was this one 'toon that had the Hulk taking on the Hunchback of Notre Dame. That was a classic toon. :D
Gal, maybe Deniro could bulk up like in The Untouchables and play Blob :)

I watched Spider Man and his Amazing friends about a month ago on ABC Family (dish channel) - still the best old cartoon EVER (even beats out Thundarr the Barbarian)
I never missed Spidey and friends in the 80s. It was one of my favorites back then.

I also rented The Trial of the Incredible Hulk as well. Remember that one? It was where David Banner( :rolleyes: ) was accused of attacking a woman on a subway and was thrown in jail. Banner teams up with DareDevil to clear his name. :laugh: :laugh: What a hoot! :rolllol: :rolllol: :rolllol:
What an awful version of Daredevil THAT was......but it wasn't as bad as their ridiculous take on Thor!! 03-puke

Hey, Rap....Does Spidey and his Amazing Friends still come on ABC Family channel? If so, what time? I'd love to see those again.

Coq.......They did a comic book version of that Hulk vs. Hunchback story you're talking about.......I used to have it and I think Sal Buscema did the art....

I think I have that same comic! I only bought it because I liked the 'toon so much. It had a very similar "look" to the 'toon too.
Gal, I tried looking it up on tvguide.com but something must be up - couldn't find anything, not even what was on at 1pm today :eek:

Anyway, the ABC family website is easily found using yahoo search. Try that, I don't have flash so I couldn't load the site.

If it isn't on anymore, I taped some a while back. You could borrow the tape next time you come up to Colatown.
It's funny. I can remember almost every detail of that "Hulk vs Hunchback" toon, but I can't remember anything about any of the spidey ones, or the other Hulk ones for that matter.
Yeah. I didn't get to see as much of "Spider Man and His Amazing Friends" during it's original run as I would've liked. I just remember that when I DID happen to catch it, I was surprised at the various Marvel characters that appeared on it......often the stories didn't even involve Spidey at all. It was like a Marvel weekly showcase.

I haven't watched the one with Thor yet Gal. If it's as bad as the Daredevil one, I might pass on it. :laugh:
Naytch - The dancing quartet in your signature cracks me up.
I like the Mazinga warrior the best. Spidey is cool too.
Is the "Mazinga" warrior what I would call a "Shogun" warrior?

I had one of those as a child. 2 feet tall. Huuuuge toy for a 7-8 year old. He'd shoot darts out of one hand and, I think, hold a sword in the other. Also had his counterpart, another "shogun" warrior whose entire fist would "shoot" off as a weapon. Had a big ol' time battling out the similarly-sized Godzilla toy with those two.
Yep, My brother had Mazinga, I had Dumas - my neighbor had Mazinga and Godzilla

Actually, I guess I had "dumas" too. My brother had the "mazinga." Never knew their names until now though.

I was the one that had the godzilla though...he shot his hand (claw) too, and his tongue stuck out when you pulled a lever behind his head. 03-cool
