Okay. So, maybe a slow news day. The way I saw the story was that there was a comparison drawn between Affleck and Reynolds. Reynolds being pretty ballsy and bad-ass - which is a great way to promote the film. This story is a great way to promote the film. I was unaware that he was a producer on the film.

I don't think anyone is upset. Again: slow news day. I just thought it was interesting enough to see if it would spark conversation. I do appreciate all the comments - even the WTF ones.

;)

@saintwildcard:

I feel as if I'm missing something. Deadpool looks like a fun, action movie. I don't see Deadpool as a deep, angst-filled character. Now, I enjoyed Watchmen, but apparently it was "too faithful" a film to enjoy. Too much of a good thing. Or maybe the subject was too dark and heavy. I don't want to turn this into a Marvel V. DC topic, but a lot of the Marvel films have been light-hearted. For me, Ant-Man covered a lot of heavy topics in a light-hearted way, without becoming a sitcom. Okay, I could have almost done without the wacky sidekicks, but they redeemed themselves by being part of the overall bit. Superman is not an angst-filled character, either. I want to see a great Superman movie. I keep going back to the original Donner film and Superman II for some good moments. The Man of Steel had some good ideas. I think if we looked at DC characters in a Marvels way - the way Dini and Ross have done... Maybe I just enjoy Peace on Earth so much I'd like to see that kind of story adapted. I'd like to see a Superman film where he faces Brainiac. The Man of Steel could have set up a trilogy of Krypton-based rogues... Zod could have been the final rogue. I'd like to see a JLA movie adapt the Dini-Ross Liberty and Justice story - before Darkseid.

@sprior93: Ha! Too true!

@ms-lola: I would think that since most sitcoms that have been worked as a comic don't last more than a few issues - My Favorite Martian was eight or nine and Welcome Back, Kotter was ten... there's already a limited audience for a sitcom comic book. Outside of a Mad magazine parody...

@ms-lola: Yes! Graphic novel or six issue mini series. Gauge response... I don't think it would outsell Deadpool or Batman ;) but as maybe a novelty. I mean, there's an Angry Birds comic book...

@thepreface: Okay. Fair enough. But comic books is all about sales. Selling books. Getting bodies into the local comic book store. Reaching out to a new audience. The current business model may need invigorating. What's going to get new feet and new bodies buying comics?

Robin, FTW

I'm thinking this list started from a modern point of view and worked backward; rather than starting from "the dawn of time" and coming forward. More people in recent memory recognize Donkey and Shrek rather than Captain America and Bucky. This is also made for a very wide audience for television shows, movies and video games, not just comics. If it were a comic book list, Bucky would be right there with Robin, and maybe Scooby Doo, too. I thought Wilson was from Cast Away, not Chuck...I guess I missed a few episodes...
