Is there anything better than seeing your favorite comic book character adapted in live action on the big screen? There's always the hope that it will be done properly but sometimes just getting the film treatment is enough. Even though we don't really have any comic book or superhero movies (besides Tintin) coming to a theater near us for the rest of this year, we have recently seen new trailers for Ghost Rider and The Amazing Spider-Man. You also can barely go a day without new spy footage from The Avengers or The Dark Knight Rises popping up online. Hollywood is still attracted to comic book movies but there are still many characters left to be adapted.

We've all had conversations online, with our friends or at our local comic shop about which characters we'd like to see on the big screen. But what about the professionals? Who do comic book writers and artists want to see in theaters? We put the question to them to find out who they want to see. Some responses might be... predictable but you might be surprised by others.

== TEASER ==

I think before giving an answer, some thought should be given. It's easy to say "I'd like to see ____ in a movie" but not all characters will work. Also those that might work need to be really thought out. Green Lantern could have been better than it was. It should have been better.

If I was asked the question, which character that hasn't been in a movie already would I want to see? How about Madman? It could be done and be a pretty easy sell. It wouldn't have to be heavy on the special effects unless they wanted to branch out into The Atomics (which could be saved for a sequel). Some day it will happen. There are many characters and villains ripe for being adapted.

What are your thoughts? Who would you want to see and what do you think about the creators' answers?

That would be an incredibly interesting character to include in a movie. Not necessarily have the movie based around her, but just having a deaf girl with photographic reflexes would be wicked on-screen.

A movie with Moon Knight, the Shroud and Werewolf by Night. Interesting backgrounds on each characters, cool gadgets and powers mixed with a supernatural element.

THE YOUNG AVENGERS!!!!!!!! 

 
 
My DREAM is to have Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver finally be introduced into cinema, preferably to have something to do with Magneto and his fatherhood (or lack thereof) and have the Avengers Movie in 2012 be successful enough to have the movie makers consider a Young Avengers Movie. Already you have three fantastic potential storylines to use or take inspiration from for the movie: 
  

  1. 1) Iron Lad and Kang the Conqueror (with the temporal distortions)
  2. 2) Hulkling's mixed ancestory (both the Skrulls and Kree)
  3. 3) And Wiccan and Speed's unusual ancestory (being Scarlet Witches' reincarnated sons and Magneto's grandsons)
  4.  (But including the girls too, because hawkeye and Stature are two of my favourites!)

Silver Surfer and Deadpool have already been in live action movies, but I have heard Ryan Reynolds is going to do a solo Deadpool movie soon. I'd also love Carnage to be the badguy for the Venom movie, if they go ahead with it :) 
 
Other than that I'm still holding out for a Dick Grayson movie! Hopefully something to portray his evolution from circus kid to Robin to Nightwing, just to reintroduce him to the world after Chris Nolan's Batman Begins/Dark Knight/Dark Knight Rises movies, and to get his character going. It kind of sucks that any other media other than the comics never get Dick Grayson and Barbara Gordon passed being Robin and Batgirl :)

It's cool seeing what the creators have to say, that being said, I'd love to see DC's Captain Marvel, the Doom Patrol, Green Arrow, Transmetropolitan,Teen Titans, Booster Gold, and Flash. On the Marvel side I'd love to see Nova, Black Panther, Avengers Academy, and the Fantastic Four get proper movies. And with Image I'd love a proper Spawn movie, along with Savage Dragon, and Invincible.

with Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Superman...that covers some of my favorites 
 
and Green Lantern, if only it wasn't crap. 
 
So honestly not sure? Maybe a GOOD GLantern movie? 
 
OH! lol..and since a couple comics have been published now....Commander Shepard, a Mass Effect movie would be awesome if done right. 
 
otherwise not sure...I used to like Mantra..and Prototype..but Prototype is too close to Iron Man... 
 
Mantra may be interesting...but the whole man's soul in womans body thing would probably just be treated overly comical and sexist

There are three things DC could do to get on the level Marvel is now with their movies. 
1) Reboot Green Lantern (not now, but soon) 
2) Make a Flash movie, I can honestly picture what a huge hit this would be with the right actors and directors 
3) Make a Shazam! movie! I mean come there is no audience this movie does not appeal to. Just think of all the potential it has, even attracting the heavy magic fans. Just don't make it a kids movie (PG-13 at least please) 
 
Never heard of Madman before but he sounds interesting

Just read up on Madman and I think that would make a great animated movie (if Pixar made it then even better). It sounds a little too goofy for live-action tho

Avengers, the Mighty Avengers incarnation 'cus everyone loves powerhouses vs. Ultron. 
Annihilation storyline, maybe.
A better spawn movie.
The whole thing that started Civil War i.e. Speedball dealing with grief and becoming Penance and the Stamford disaster, that could work, possibly.

Not sure Vertigo adapts wells.  Preacher would make a better HBO series for length reasons.
