Ever since Marvel’s The Avengers, DC & Warner Bros have been scrambling to get into the profitable superhero film market. We all know Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and The Justice League movie are coming soon. This leaves WB with another interesting question: What other heros should be adapted for the big screen? After doing a bit of thinking I’ve come up with a list of DC heroes worthy of a hollywood adaptation.
Wonder Woman is one of my favorite DC characters of all time. A skilled warrior, strong willed and totally badass, Diana Prince is a fantastic character. Wonder woman can kick a villain’s ass better than any man ever could, plus it’s about time we got more female heroes on screen.
Shazam! (Previously known as Captain Marvel)
Earth’s Mightiest Mortal would be infinitely awesome on screen! Whenever Billy Batson shouts out the word “Shazam!” he turns into a powerful superhero! I can already envision myself shouting SHAZAM! at the top of my lungs in a crowded movie theater. Also Black Adam is an awesome villain.
Green Lantern (John Stewart)
Let’s all forget about Ryan Reynolds’ portrayal of Green Lantern from a few years ago. The great thing about Green Lantern is he has multiple versions! Reboot the movie and get it right this time.
Admittedly I don’t know much about Dr. Fate or his mythos but I love all the magic and mystical elements that he brings to the table. I’m confident WB could churn out a good movie using this character if they wanted.
I love all the conspiracy theories and paranoia involved with The Question in Justice League Unlimited. From what I know about his background and character he is similar to Rorschach from Watchmen. Do I have you sold yet?
“I’ll put a shock to your system!” There aren’t many young African American superheroes on screen yet so why not? Static is a fun and reckless hero dealing with coming of age issues and supervillains in his spare time. Doesn’t that already sound like a synopsis for a movie?
This doesn’t even need to be justified. Just make it happen. WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!?! *Fanboy Rage*
What do you guys think? Are there any DC heros you want to see their a big screen debut? Be sure to leave a comment!
