I've heard the same about the Howard the Duck movie
If you ever get a chance you should read the Zombies series its really well written & the art goes perfectly with it. The only ones I don't recommend is Marvel Zombies Return & Evil Evolution they got a little stupid after a while.
Well, now, I was a kid when my dad took me to see Howard. I am mixed. I bought it as soon as it came out on DVD, it isn't a GREAT movie by any standards, but as an 8 year old kid, I loved it. Talking ducks! Come on. However it has very little in common with the actual comic, which is fantastic. Nostalgia more than anything makes it good for me.
Howard and Man-Thing were also frequent team mates in the comics, now that's a movie I wanna see!
I have only read one MZombies, that's the crossover with ASH from Evil Dead! Awesome mini series!
To be honest I would love to see a movie with Morbius & the other midnight sons that would make an awesome movie too if they pull it off right. Maybe even a movie of the Civil War arc if the movie companies holding the rights were willing to work together on it.
The crossover with Ash was the 1 that kicks the whole series off. All the others are basically what happened from there. Id say the best ones are Zombies 4 & 5. The Midnight Sons kicking zombie ass in Earth 616 Zombie himself & zombie Deadpool in 1 big comic then Machine Man & Howard the Duck working together in the 5th kicking zombie ass across the universes.
Oh yeah, a Midnight Sons would be fantastic. Marvel was supposed to be filming a bunsh of live action short films with other characters, I suppose to gauge reactions and popularity. The ones I read were Dr. Strange, Cloak & Dagger, Namor and Deathlok. There are so many. I wish DC would do the same.
I didn't realize the Zombies plague was because of the deadites. Learn something every day.
Funny you say about a dr strange movie me & my friends were talking about that just yesterday the only person we could agree on that would suit the role is johnny depp though purely coz he has the right sort of look & could probably pull it off.
Apparently the Zombies aren't deadites according to the necronomicon coz it can't control them like regular ones. The only plus side about Marvel Zombies Return is it brings the story full circle & explains how Sentry became the 1st zombie of that universe.
