ATTENTION: CLASSIC COMIC BOOKS DO NOT TRANSLATE TO THE MOVIE SCREEN. Anyone remember Daredevil? One of the greatest comic book underdog heros of all time ruined by the Hollywood machine. Utterly thrown under a bus for the sake of a few bucks for people who have too much god damn money anyway.
It’s simplicity was the beauty of a comic book. The single frames of art allowed you to create unlimited action inside your head.
How ’bout The Flash TV series? Good lord.
If those pencil-necked, overpaid, worthless producer turds in Hollywood have screwed this one up…….
They’ve already trashed two-thirds of the literature of my youth….Daredevil, Batman, Superman, Fantastic Four, Silver Surfer, Green Lantern, Green Hornet, all the forty gazillion X Men, and Iron Man (but I sort of liked Iron Man because of Robert Downey’s decent job of portraying the conflicted anti-hero Tony Stark, although the writing still sucked).
How do you mash a comic book with a 20 or 30 year old story line into a movie? Now this is key……..
Hey Hollywood. Quit ripping the memories out of my head and subjecting them to your vapid punch ups and then throwing them in the mud once the check is cashed.
Please. Please let Captain America be even remotely watchable and I will shut up about comic books
