The comic books we wish Hollywood would make into movies

With Chris Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy in the bag, hits like X-Men: Days of Future Past ruling the box office, and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy surfacing on the horizon, we’re living in a Golden Age for comic book movies.

    Slaine, Zenith or Nemesis the Warlock would push my buttons.

    Totally agree with Aquaman. We need an Aquaman movie, especially if we want a Justice League movie, he was one of the founders. Also, Aquaman has a really cool back-story. It would be a great origin movie.

    IIRC, Preacher’s been in development hell for a *very* long time.

    And none of these would hold a candle to JTHM if done right.
