Some Comic to Movie News..
My favorite, messed up, ultra violent, super heart tearing comic WE3 is going to get a movie treatment thanks to Don Murphy and Angry Films. For those who might not know WE3, its the three issue mini by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely which had three animals on a quest to find their home. With guns. Anti-aircraft missles. Popping eyeballs. Decapitations. And more.
Trust me, it will be a truly wonderful film, assuming they DON'T CHANGE ANYTHING FROM THE COMIC.
At worst, they make the animals talk differently from the comic, give them "new cooler weapons" and change the plot's villain to have a face.
Please. Don't mess it up.
Missy Peregrym and Milo Ventimiglia both hope to land Wonderwoman and Robin respectively. Really now. Like you two can act. Please. Bad superhero movies already exist. Don't even think of adding to it.
I really don't get it. Heroes is so derivative and basic a series. I just don't get why so many get ooh-ed and aaah-ed by it. Only the policeman, the cheerleader and the Japanese duo were worth watching. Everything else, and yes that includes the "cool" villain, are just derivatives of so many other comics/shows/movies that I just predict everything so easily.
Ah, Apples and Oranges.
But please, don't let the WE3 movie get messed up. And please. Let the Wonderwoman and Robin movies NOT have those actors above. Find someone with real talent.
Thank you, God.
And yes, I hope you have a nice space for Mike Wieringo up there. He's work will always remind me of the greatness of Flash and Impulse. Mike Wieringo, who has illustrated many comics books, has passed away after a massive heart attack. He was only 44 years old. My condolences to his family and friends.
