Disney/Marvel should take a cue from WB Animation

Posted on: July 2, 2017

WB animation will be releasing a box set of every DC animated movie from their library celebrating 10 years of animated goodness.  I believe its time that Disney/Marvel follow DC’s lead and make some teen to adult animated features based on Marvel comics stories. Here are some suggestions to get started..

 

611xacur01L

Kraven the Hunter has stalked and killed every animal known to man. But there is one beast that has eluded him. One quarry that has mocked him at every turn: the wall-crawling web-slinger known as Spider-Man. And to prove that he is the hero’s master, he will pull on his costume and become him… after he shoots and buries him six feet under!  If Disney would go with this plan, nothing else would show the world their new PG-13 attitude than Kraven’s Last Hunt.  

 

Iron Man Demon in a Bottle Tony Stark MCU Marvel Cinematic Universe Disney

Iron Man faces his most untouchable foe in criminal industrialist Justin Hammer and his army of super-villains! But can the Armored Avenger overcome an even more implacable personal demon, invulnerable to technology or wealth?  Can you imagine a animated feature that could potentially connect with certain fans that have similar demons.  This animated feature would definitely make headlines.

 

Superior_Spider-Man_1

Peter Parker has spent a lifetime living up to the responsibilities his powers foisted upon him but his Amazing story finally ends dramatically as one of his greatest enemies Doctor Octopus has arrived and he is better in every single way. Smarter, stronger…Superior.  This is one of the best Spiderman tales of the last decade and should get the animated treatment.

 

74636-2045-77571-1-fantastic-four

The synopsis is all in the title.  An updated Fantastic Four animated feature with Galactus, Silver Surfer and Uatu the Watcher but a Fantastic Four movie done correctly in the Mighty Marvel Manner.

Squadron_supreme_title

On an Earth much like our own, the world’s greatest superhuman champions are confronted by a society in ruins. Faced with the possibility of a new dark age for mankind, they choose the only course available to them -and take control of the world’s governments themselves! Now they have one year in which to completely restructure human society. Can their plan succeed? Will a renegade member bring about their downfall? And what will happen when the Earth’s mightiest heroes find themselves becoming instead its all-powerful, totalitarian overlords?  WB animation took a chance on an animated Suicide Squad movie that was marketed as a Batman movie.  Marvel could do the same by marketing this as a different kind of Avengers movie and introduce new characters in Marvel’s animated universe.

 

Hopefully someone will read this and think its a good idea for Disney/Marvel to animate from  Marvel’s vast collection of stories.  Disney is the top animation company in the world and with access to Marvel’s stories, why is it taking so long for another Marvel animated feature.

DC Storylines that should be animated features

Posted on: July 2, 2017

The news that DC is celebrating its animated 10th anniversary by releasing a box set of all their films, here are some suggestions for the next 10…

 

225x225bb

As the war between the different Corps rages on, the prophecy of the Blackest Night descends in this hardcover collecting the best–selling BLACKEST NIGHT #0-8. Now, Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps lead DC’s champions into battle to save the universe from an army of Black Lanterns made up of the DCU’s deceased heroes and villains!  Hal Jordan has certainly been better in animation than live action and a Blackest Night film is just the right vehicle to get everyone excited about Green Lantern again.

 

Crisis_on_Infinite_Earths_7

A mysterious being known as the Anti-Monitor has begun a crusade across time to bring about the end of all existence. As alternate earths are systematically destroyed, the Monitor quickly assembles a team of super-heroes from across time and space to battle his counterpart and stop the destruction. DC’s greatest heroes including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and Aquaman, assemble to stop the menace, but as they watch both the Flash and Supergirl die in battle, they begin to wonder if even all of the heroes in the world can stop this destructive force.  Now that the new 52 is a thing of the past the animation continuity can catch up by animated one of DC’s best stories.

 

Supermanredson

He’s a strange visitor from another world who can change the course of mighty rivers, bend steel in his bare hands’ — and who, as the champion of the common worker, fights a never-ending battle for Stalin, Socialism and the international expansion of the Warsaw Pact.A deftly written alternate take on the mythos of the Man of Steel, RED SON explores the classic tale of Superman’s origins’ — if his rocketship had landed in the Soviet Union rather than Smallville, Kansas.  This fantastic story from Mark Millar will have fans talking about the man of steel in a elseworlds story about what could have been.

 

Armageddon_2001_1

Armageddon 2001 refers to a gigantic battle between all of Earth’s heroes and a villain known only as Monarch, in which the superheroes were slain and the all-powerful Monarch plunged the world into a totalitarian government underneath his rule. This Possible Future took place in the then-future year of 2001, hence the title. In the year 2030, Matthew Ryder, a scientist sent into the Timestream as a part of one of Monarch’s experiments, becomes imbued with temporal superpowers and journeys into the past as Waverider to attempt to learn more about Monarch and determine who he is so he can be thwarted. On his journeys, Waverider investigates the possible futures of almost every superhero in the DCU, some even multiple times. As the tale reaches its conclusion, the identity of Monarch is revealed as he appears in the present time to destroy all superheroes in order to make his future reign be certain.  Another movie that covers almost every character within the DCU and not only is it a great story but think of the possibility of an original movie about the Monarch.

 

51LhBFLJwgL._SX308_BO1,204,203,200_

Similar to the premise of the Smallville television series, this hardcover book takes a look at the life of a young Clark Kent as he begins to develop strange powers. Living in a small Kansas town, the boy who would grow to be the Man of Steel must come to terms with his true origin and his uncanny abilities. In this mythic tale, we witness the experiences and adventures that transform a simple country boy into the world’s greatest hero.  Not only does this book deserve an absolute edition but could you imagine Superman/Clark voiced by Tom Welling.  If anything PLEASE WB ANIMATE THIS BOOK!!!

 

DC comics is filled with years and years of stories just waiting to be animated, so congratulations to 10 years of great animation and here’s to another ten, I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the future.
