In honor of FIGHT CLUB 2, I was wondering what movies out there could use a comic book sequel or prequel?
A few I can think of - some obvious and some not so.
DARKMAN (Surely someone’s already done a comic book for this)
EVIL DEAD (see above)
BEETLEJUICE* (the movie, not the bizarre Saturday Morning cartoon) (hell, just about any Tim Burton movie)
BACK TO THE FUTURE
FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF
But lists aren’t completely fun, so pitch a few ideas. Most of the ones on my “top of my head” list are already close to comics already (Darkman, Hancock, Back to the Future), but a couple unusual ones that could take advantage of the unlimited “budget” comics allows (anything you can draw).
At the end of the movie, when Bruce Nolan decides to let God worry about running the world, he expected to spend the rest of his life as a normal mortal mostly happily married to Grace, his much better than he deserves wife. However, when Bruce discovers that his almighty powers have returned, the first thing he does is head to the mysterious all-white floor in the building where he first met Almighty Sr. to find out what’s going on. Instead of encountering the Supreme Being, however, he meets eleven other people from around the world who have all undergone the same “I told you so” ordeal that God put Bruce through. It appears that GOD has gone AWOL and now it’s up to this misfit team of “Almighties” to literally keep the world from falling apart. Of course, it’s damn near impossible for two people to agree on how the world should be run, so twelve are certainly going to have more than a few problems… especially when one of them may not exactly be what they seem.
“Ferris is going to be President some day.”
- Random Quote of a fellow student in FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF
Ferris Bueller is the President of the United States and that can be something of a drag. Time ditch the Secret Service and take a sick day.
