Make An 'Origins' Movie
The Cliché: Start at the very beginning (it’s a very good place to start).
Appears In: X-Men, The Losers.
How To Make It Real: These days, comic book movies all begin with the origin story. Forget dropping your audience straight in at the deep end, we want to see where your hero came from before he became all super.
This has a number of benefits. First, we get acquainted with said hero on a human level: we get to see his flaws, his strife, what turns him to crime-fighting. Second, when he starts to fight it’s gonna be a struggle, which comes with its own tensions and is always interesting to watch. And third, it means further stories can be fleshed out down the line.
