Batman and The Sub-Mariner



Prince Namor, the Sub-Mariner is one of Marvel's best characters. Because of his personality, it is fun to see him alongside different heroes - you never know whether he is going to fight them, fight alongside them, or try to seduce them! His role as a monarch as well as his long history dating back to the Golden Age of Marvel give him lots of potential for storytelling as well.

I think a Sub-Mariner film could be cool and very different, but I must admit it would be tough to pull off. Beyond the logistics of a largely underwater shoot, having the main character in a green speedo is hard to get away with. They would have to get someone like The Rock, but it would still be hard to take seriously. I do like Namor's black outfit during the 70's, maybe they could use that for most scenes.

Awww, yeah - Namor - or Subby to his "friends". I wish DC and Marvel would do a JSA-Invaders mash-up...That would be awesomeness.

Marvel and DC did combine the two teams in one of their Amalgam Super-Soldier issues, if I recall correctly.
