.....an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle! Okay that is an over-used quote but I like. Greetings super heroes and welcome to another naughty and nice list of milk and cookie goodness. It is that time of year when children all over make a list of toys, trains and video games they want "Santa" to bring them for making sure they didn't play hooky or forget you wash their hands after taking a number two. I figured this would be a good time to ask Stanta Lee Claus which movies I would like to see made in order to make me and my army of fan-boys believe in Christmas again. So in no specific order I give you my wish list.
This beats a cloud any day!
You made me miss!
1. Silver Surfer movie with an actual Galactus
In FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER we all got a very brief glimpse of the big helmet worn by of the embodiment the power cosmic himself, Galactus. But that was just serious tease and left most of us with a serious case of silver balls. Give us the big purple giant , we have been good.
2. Bullseye spin-off movie
So, I am going on record as liking the move DAREDEVIL. I thought there was chemistry between everybody in the cast. I feel like it was seriously over-looked and everybody was great in the respective roles. One person who wasn't give the screen time I feel he deserved
was Bullseye. He was left in traction at the end of the movie with a small hint that he could return. The problem I have is that he wasn't given any back-story and I think he deserves it. Make it an anti-hero movie and give the guy a costume like he asked for.
Shhh. My common sense is tingling.
3. Deadpool spin-off movie
We just weren't given nearly enough of the Merc with a mouth in the movie WOLVERINE ORIGINS. He had a few clever moments in the beginning as Wade Wilson and then was more or less ditched until the very last part of the movie *spoiler alert*. What we got then was a wise-cracking character that couldn't even speak. We were seriously ripped off and this
injustice needs to be rectified.
... Never touch a black man's remote
4. Luke Cage movie
It doesn't even have to be anImmortal Iron Fist and Powerman: Heroes for Hire movie even though that would be cool. The concept of seeing what happened when someone tried to reproduce Captain America's super soldier serum is a great idea for a tie-in. It could even be a standalone movie. The Old Spice guy Isaiah Mustafa even made a fan-trailer for it because he wants to be Luke Cage. I want to see this movie made.
This is just a short list because I still have a lot of shopping to do. Let me know what movies are on you wish lists. Thanks again for reading true believers, EXCELSIOR!

|Good Column, Mr. Alpha....|
I also have a Christmas Movie List, and it has only one thing:
SUPERHEROES HAVING THEIR REAL ORIGINS AND WEARING THEIR REAL COSTUMES!
Marvel's getting back on track, but there are still scads of movies who feel that the superhero's iconic look doesn't fit the "Q" of their demographic. Don't muck with Superman's costume (speedo's - please), give the Smallville superheroes back their real costumes, and please, EXECUTE the guy who sold Hollywood on black leather!
Your movie wishes is also a great to-do list, and all of them MAY be developed down the pike. Not before The AVENGERS movie, but perhaps after.
Keep 'em coming!

I am the first and the last, maybe not. I'm 31 years old and still spend my disposable income on comic books. Might as well put it to good use.|
