Comic Book Adaptations

What would this summer be without another pair of comic book adaptations, full of special effects and enough hype to keep you up at night. Fantastic 4, from the creative minds at Marvel Comics and Batman Begins by D.C. Comics, are this summers line up.








Decades ago, kids paid pocket change to read graphic novels about heroes with super powers defeat the forces of evil. Put popular faces on these characters and beef up production with hundreds of million dollars and you have a recipe for a blockbuster. It has been pretty much hit and miss with this genre of movies. Using an actor that isn't believable as a hero, or limiting your story to boy meets girl, girl dies, boy gets revenge, will negatively affect ticket sales. In the past, these movies were attempted but people saw through the cheesy effects and poor costume design. Now seems to be the best time to market the idea of the super-natural to us. Advancements in visual effects and filming techniques, now allows viewers to feel the intensity and power that original writers of these stories intended.


As the 1990s came to an end, children's television was saturated with super heroes in cartoon form. Those kids (including myself) are now in their late teens and early 20's and line up to see their favorite heroes once more in live action. The first re-issue of hero movies were immediate successes. X-Men, Spiderman and even The Hulk made production companies see the light when it came to profiting handsomely and have opened the flood gates for movie studios to go ahead and make much more. The amount of money generated from DVD sales and merchandise alone have secured the future for the comic book genre.

Some of the best films based on comic books made to date include:

Spiderman




X-Men




Hellboy




Sin City
