The Comic: A wildly sprawling storyline that sees DC's top talent time travelling all over the show, with some scenes even occurring in the midst of the Big Bang. Not lacking in ambition, this one…
Why It Must Never Be Filmed: A story so OTT it involves the entire DC Universe would be too much for even the most talented screenwriter to adapt.

Might be a bit quick to dismiss that Aunt May and Uncle Ben get together. PIcture 21 makes it look......interesting???
Alert a moderator
Well well, there's so much gold on this list. Who wouldn't wanna see "Tales from the Leather Nun" or "Tarot: Witch of the Black Rose"? Too bad Joe D'Amato isn't with us anymore...And "Amputee Love" has to be made! I see a collaboration between Tom Six and Srdjan Spasojevic as a directing-duo for that. Also "Madam Fatal" sound great, maybe with Statham or Diesel in the lead...or even better: The Rock! And I would pay good money to see the "Hamsters" movie (ok...there was "G-Force"....). And Star Trek / X-Men...might be crappy, but everybody would go see it, so why not.

Shazam is a DC character, not Marvel :)
Nov 22nd 2012, 9:35
Gonna disagree with on on the Carnage Vs Spider-man argument. After 4 films I'd really like to see a villain that's just a villain for the sake of being a villain; enough with the "poor me, I was just trying to help" baddies that have been thrown at us. I'm discounting Venom from Spider-man 3 because, well, because he was an embarrassment .
Nov 22nd 2012, 10:40
Woud love to see a '50 Graphic Novel Movies That Must Be Made' list...
Nov 22nd 2012, 11:08
Shazam at number 5? Hell NO! Shazam would make a fantastic film, as a CHILDREN'S MOVIE. The Rock has been in talks to play Black Adam seemingly forever, in my humble opinion this is a franchise that Warner Bros may actually be able to pull off!
Nov 22nd 2012, 11:36
really?! (#37) just because they didn't do a good job on Venom... that means 'Nope, let's never do that again' well done again Total film....
Nov 22nd 2012, 11:46
Strangely enough I think - Captain Britain & Love and Rockets (Hopper) would be the only comic books worth making because they are so different to anything else - CB is a truly beautifully weird tale by Alan Moore and L&R is just about the most human, funny and moving comic book ever put together ... however I wouldn't want either made because the corporate system would just ruin both of them.
Nov 22nd 2012, 12:51
Some great books here... but please TF next time warn us about some of the NSFW images?
Nov 22nd 2012, 13:37
I'd love to see the House of M story on screen, but maybe would only work on the small screen as part of any 'Marvel Universe' tv show. I thought that was a brilliant crossover story and Identity Crisis as well - could be done in the same way as 'Watchmen' as more of a mystery who-done-it with superheroes in
Nov 22nd 2012, 15:13
man, i'd love to see a freak brothers movie, and if only me and the millions of other fans weren't so goddam lethargic we'd write a petition or something, to someone or other ...i think......uh.......yeah...so..........what were we talking about?
Nov 22nd 2012, 16:15
Agree with Acts of Vengeance mostly to due to Chris Evans playing both Human Torch and The Cap,
Nov 22nd 2012, 18:29
I must protest Rom's inclusion. The book had a good run, was nothing at all like Transformers and considerably outlasted the toy it was based on (which crashed and burned AFAIK). It was also one of the first books in the modern ETA whose events spilled over into the rest of the publisher's line.
Nov 22nd 2012, 22:25
#37, please. EVERYBODY needs a symbiote story done right. Those are always dark chapters in Spider-man stories, and they also brign out the darker side of Peter Parker and have him fight to regain his heroism. Really, Spidey 3 focused too much of the movie on the first part (and meaningless use of 2 love interests and a petty best friend), then brought Venom in. Venom, or a murderous Carnage, need to be torturing Spider-Man for at least half a film.
BTW, Flash Thompson as Venom is the way to go.
Nov 22nd 2012, 23:11
so, Captain Britain is a poor man Steve Rogers? I would recommend that you do a little something called 'research'.. you know that thing your supposed to do when you write an article. Captain Britain is nothing like Captain America. Jeeze... TF gets more sloppy everyday!
Nov 23rd 2012, 5:52
Preacher and Y The Last Man should never be made into movies they are too large to condense into a two hour movie. They need to go down The Game Of Thrones route and look to HBO for a tv series.
Nov 23rd 2012, 12:56
Hasn't The Invisibles been turned into The Matrix already? :D
Nov 23rd 2012, 23:16
DC have already done a version of The Death of Superman with the animated Superman: Doomsday and that was rather great, truth be told.
A live action version of that (as the third or fourth film in the series that's about to begin) could be great too.
Nov 24th 2012, 2:37
these people are idiots. House of M would be a f*****g awesome movie
Nov 24th 2012, 12:44
superman red/blue? 1998? you sure?
there was a superman red/blue before that where lex used red kryptonite instead of the more usual green kryptonite and we had red/blue superman
sounds familer yes?
well thats right, until you throw into the equation that they still only have 1 set of super powers between them, so if one is flying the other can't, lasers, super strength etc
there was also a space cowboy, complete with flying into space horse (who lex used to find the wrong kryptonite but that's a different story altogether, even though it's the same story)
Nov 24th 2012, 12:47
and anyway, you should do a list of 50 comic book characters who SHOULD be filmed, i'd start with deaths head (but not deaths head 2 because he went a bit sappy)
who else would help 2 different villians go after the same treasure, seperatly, with both promising him a 50% cut, and then leave them both for the rozzers to capture as he takes 50% from one and 50% from the other?
Nov 26th 2012, 15:21
The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers is already underway as far as I know. Went to a panel with the creators and viewed some animation tests at a comic con in Brighton a few years back. Actually looked quite funny.
Nov 27th 2012, 12:43
what do you mean "Kill the frranchise stone dead"? It alread IS!
well, the movie industry could turn the tide on this debacle (by DC managewise)
by letting Luthor off Supes' hide as it should be (no bloody ressurections this time)
which would in turn eventually lead to the Tarnation of Luthor's demise by the hands
of the People's power and the entire arsenal of DC superheroes itself, but first they would have to
first set the movies for each character- THIS would then
serve as the grand finale (after they have done
a CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTH Trilogy that is)
Nov 27th 2012, 12:53
it depends if done brilliantly, but then again there's nothing much enough talent left in any industry these days
Nov 27th 2012, 12:56
I'm quite sure if they'd make this one-- it's all bound to look like that movie adaptation for Josie and the Pussies
Nov 27th 2012, 12:59
The CHEECH AND CHONG of Comicdom wold've worked well if Jim Belushi were still around
Nov 27th 2012, 13:03
GAIMAN should've been shoved with a file suit down his a**e for this one, dunno what's with DC Comics to allow such titles that resemble an old character of theirs with something ill-contrived and totally different from the one they had.
Nov 27th 2012, 13:04
like who gives a F@#$
Nov 27th 2012, 13:09

for #9 = XMEN Holy War (2003) I'm alright with this one if they'd make it a movie
Nov 27th 2012, 13:14
#41 Spidey clone saga = it would make a good two-parter if done well
Nov 27th 2012, 13:26

Oh dear. Are we so seriously out of ideas that we are recycling features from 6 months ago?? Beginning to wonder why I still come to this site anymore.

"Unless you were to recast him as a beer-swilling lout who’s generally an embarrassment to the country, but quite handy when it comes to saving the day." Pity Will Smith as Hancoque got there first.

Personally speaking - don't shoot me, its just an opinion - I'd like to see an end to all super hero movies. I find them a little tedious at best. Yeah some are OK, like Avengers, but I get really disheartened that all we seem to be served these days are comic book films. For every average action flick dressed up in spandex there are 5 awful, pointless cash-ins (yeah you Sucker Punch). I mean, really!! If 50% of blockbuster films were about the same other thing, say spies for example, wouldn't we all be a bit bored of them by now? I think the demand placed on studios for the same, but bigger, super-hero films and comic adaptations is strangling creativity. How many origin stories can we be fed? How many times can Superman or Spiderman be reborn before it gets repetitive? I know studios only give the public what they want, thats where the profit is. And if they weren't profitable they wouldn't be made. But seriously, enough already! Go work on something else, something new. Or is it just me?

RaveyDaveyGravy get ready for Star Wars overkill. A promised / threatened new SW movie every year PLUS spin-offs. With Marvel, Disney are going to be coining it in for the next decade.
