Disney/Marvel should take a cue from WB Animation

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..

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.

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.

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.

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.
