Why Does Hollywood Love Comic Book Movies

Posted by on Apr 17, 2013 in Comic Book Movies | 0 comments

For the same reason Hollywood Loves Video Game Movies… These movies will arrive in the theaters with a spendy fan base who grew up reading the same comic books. While printed comic books are becoming outdated in favor of online comic books, the other premise about comic book movies that Hollywood loves is that they already come with story lines and characters which have been fleshed out over a comic book series. Movie fans also love the good guy vs. the bad guy plot and comic books are notorious for promulgating this type of story line.

Hollywood, as in the major studios, aren’t into taking financial risks. Hollywood is a biz and a biz that wants to remain profitable. Comic book movies are typically a safe bet that the studio will make money. Only a few comic book movies have turned out to be duds at the box office in the past few years, e.g., Jonah Hex. Although that series was more obscure than the more mainstream and popular comic books that make it to the big screen.

Another reason why Hollywood likes the comic book movie synergy is marketing and promotional tie-ins including merchandising, licensing, etc. Ancillary income like this is another way that the big studios make money on their films. And merchandise also has a built-in advertising factor. Picture a hot girl walking down the street wearing a tshirt for the comic book film that is in theaters now. And last but not least, another of the reasons why the big studios like comic book movies is that building a franchise is possible and profitable. Think Spiderman.

Legendary Superhero The Hulk

Posted by on Jul 6, 2012 in Comic Books | 0 comments

If you enjoy superheroes and you love comic books, then you should check out my favorite comic book superhero, The Hulk. I think that The Hulk is my favorite comic book superhero simply because of his powers – the ability to become massive and with limitless strength almost instantly, something that I wish I could do when I need to make a point! Normally, The Hulk is just like any of us, a simple, normal guy, but when he becomes angry and enraged, he swells up to dozens of times his normal size and becomes extremely strong, powerful, and full of rage and fury, which is something I think all of us feel at one point in time or another in our lives. While The Hulk may relate to some of us comic book readers, he still is a legendary superhero to millions and millions of people all around the world for the things he does in his comics, his movies, video games and more. The Hulk is almost immortal once he becomes powerful, and there’s not much that can stand in his way when he has a goal to meet. If you love powerful superheroes then check out The Hulk.

Comic Book Movie – Men in Black

Posted by on Jul 6, 2012 in Comic Book Movie | 0 comments

Did you see the Comic Book Movie – Men in Black – the first of two existing movies that are based off of a comic book, now is going to have a third movie released in 2012 titled Men in Black III. The original Men in Black was one of my favorite movies simply because of the special effects that were created and used for the comic book movie as well as the storyline behind it. If you really let yourself get absorbed into the movie, you may notice that during intense scenes, you’ll hold your breath for a little bit while waiting to see if something goes wrong, or you may notice that you’ve forgotten to blink while you’re absorbed into the action-packed scenes. I enjoy action movies and Men in Black is a prime example of a great action movie that’s based off of a comic book. If you enjoy movies that are derived from this concept, then you should definitely check out Men in Black, as well as Men in Black II if you haven’t already. I’m sure you’ll enjoy both of the current Men in Black movies as well as the third one being released sometime this year. If you have a favorite Comic Book Movie – men in Black or another comic book movie to recommend, use the Contact form (see link below at the bottom of the webpage) to submit your comic book movie feature idea.
