I came across this infographic about some comic characters that haven’t made it to the big screen yet and had to share it with my fellow Fanbros, comic heads, and the everyday people who are only here because Captain America drops tomorrow. There are definitely some worthy picks amongst the ten but I’ll give you my full thoughts after you check it out below.
I like the rating system with the chance that a character makes it into the film, but I’m pretty sure that Baron Zemo is going to be seen in the near future with Baron Von Strucker already making it into the Marvel Films. I just realized that the chances of seeing the Strucker twins is even less than Zemo since they are tied up in the X-Men franchise and the rights to those films are unfortunately tied up with Sony.
But you know I do have get on my Fanbro soapbox for a minute here and ask where in Wakanda is Black Panther on this list? Every week on Fanbros show we ask Luke Cage or Black Panther in our Braap segment and most of the time people answer Luke Cage. Now nothing against Luke as Power Man & Iron Fist was one of my favorite comics growing up but why is a king of an African country with advanced technology that has never been colonized or invaded so difficult to relate to people? Why can’t T’Challa get any love? Marvel has repeatedly stated that a Black Panther movie is in the works, but that might as well mean that a Black Knight movie is in the works since they are both Avengers and happen to have Black in their names. Black Knight might even get made first since Marvel seems to think that their audience can accept a man with a magical hammer who comes from another dimension before an African king. Let’s not even get into the talking raccoon.
Now before you think I’m hating on Marvel’s game plan let me be the first to say that I am utterly amazed that they have even pulled off what they’ve pulled off so far and with early reviews on Captain America being through the roof I’m sure that they have no plans of slowing down anytime soon. I’m just saying, if you can sell people on everything that you have sold them so far it shouldn’t be that difficult to sell them on a Black Panther film. Question for everyone who made it this far, what character would you most want to see in a Marvel production? Let me know in the comments below.
