    Default Comic Book Crossover Film?

    If you could have a choice of making any film that is a crossover of two comic book hero's who would it be and what kind of story would you want told?

    Superman & Batman, no question.

    Brandon Routh & Christian Bale are both too damn perfectly cast for Warner Brothers to pass up an opportunity this good.

    And if Joss Whedon can give us an equally spot-on Wonder Woman, just shoot for the stars and give us a full-blown Justice League of America movie with Matt Damon as The Flash, George Clooney as Green Lantern, Brad Pitt as Green Arrow and Angelina Jolie as Black Canary.

    Ocean's Eleven with superheroes.

    Against Ron Perlman as Darkseid, Spacey as Luthor, Paul Bettany as The Joker, Kate Beckinsale as Talia, Nicholas Cage as Sinestro, The Rock as Solomon Grundy and a CGI Gorrilla Grodd voiced by Philip Seymour Hoffman.

    Yeah, I know it'll never happen, but I can dream, can't I?

    I think a superhero crossover film like Superman and Batman is just out of the question. They both have such big egos that they need their own two and a half hours. They cant share. Im not saying that Bored's idea is bad (especially Kate Beckinsale as Thalia. Grrrrr!;) ) but just that i dont see how a studio could make it work without turning it into X3.


    On the other hand, lesser known characters could do it. You could do a Superman Returns-scale movie about Cable and Deadpool. As long as Ryan Renolds is not Wade, I'm sure it would be a hit.

    Also, I would like to see a Blue Beetle Booster Gold, with Brian Austin Greene as Ted Kord and Paul Walker as Gold. That would be a funny Dumb & Dumber meets 48 hours with superpowers. I say that Gorrila Grodd should be the villain.

    NOBODY is Darkseid but Micheal Ironside! Do it CGI with him lending the voice or don't do it.

    Hell have him do a live action version just have him do it.

    Why not let Michael Dorn do the acting as Darkseid, but then do a v/o of Michael Ironside? Sort of how they did Darth Vader.

    OK that I can live with. Ironside just is Darkseid to me and I just can't wrap my head around the idea of him not involved in some way.

    Dorn could do the whole thing. He doesn't need anyone else's voice.

    I think a Spider-Man/Daredevil film or a Green Lantern/Flash film would be cool.

    Ok, I've decided that I would accept a Superman/Batman film if it followed these criteria.

    1) Same actors from the most recent movies.

    2) Had 3 directors, instead of just one.

    3) Said directors are Batman-Nolan; first 10-15 min, Superman-Singer; next ten min, Ridley Scott- When they meet and for the rest of the movie.

    4) It takes place primarily in space. Even moreso primarily on Apokalips.

    5) The Batman portion is narrated by Superman, and vice-versa. Just like the comic

    6) and finally it would have to look like this:




    exept with said actors from the previous movies. Maybe with no Wonder Woman, depending on how good that movie is.

    Wolverine / Punisher.

    Use both current actors Huge Assman, I mean Hugh Jackman, and Thomas Jane.

    Wolverine's in New York looking for leads on Weapon X, finds nothing, enters a bar, huge bar fight, oh, Punisher happens to be there too.

    Something, something, character development, big adventure, character development, blah, blah.....THEY KILL ALOT OF PEOPLE.

    They themselves should have at least three fights. One in the beginning, before they get to know each other. Another in the middle because they've gotten to know each other a bit, and they don't like it. Finally, one at the end because we need a winner.

    But in between all of it.....THEY KILL ALOT OF PEOPLE.

    I could come up with something better given time, but this here would earn a few hundred million, I think.

    Talking A Hypothetical Daredevil/Fantastic Four Live-Action Crossover Film

    It couldn't be that far fetched considering 20th Century Fox produced the live-action Daredevil and Fantastic Four films:
