The Thing and The Badger



Now that the Disney/Fox deal is nearing completion, I am really looking forward to what the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe holds, and number one on my list is not just a proper version of The Fantastic Four, but the fact that such a film will allow for something that I have been waiting to see on the big screen my whole life:  a Thing/Hulk fight!  I always lived their rivalry in the comics and was thrilled at the animated battle they had in the second season of the 90's Fantastic Four cartoon.  Come on, Marvel - make it happen!

Sorry, Ross. But, my money's on Bruce Banner.

WHOA! Hydra...going up against Michigan's favorite (MPD) son?!

I never thought I'd feel sorry for a bunch of green-clad subversives.

With all the great CGI out there, why can't they make a decent looking Thing. I love Ben Grimm. His appearance in the comics is awesome, but in all the movies his looks are just so off in appearance, it is distracting. Am I along in this thought. Does anyone else think that the movie versions of the Thing should resemble the ever loving, blue-eyed Thing of the comics?

May I suggest an obvious pairing that hasn't been done yet ? Fantastic Four and Elementals.

Thank you!

@ Anonymous: as long as they CGI a classic Ben Grimm, and not the sorry look he sports these days. He has PROMINENT EYEBROW RIDGES, artists!!! No more of the horrible Cine-Grimm Michael Chiklis profile.

Rather than straight CGI, I'd say use motion capture. Michael Chiklis wore a SFX suit because CGI at the time wasn't so good (it was at his own insistence, a decision he began to regret every time he had to relieve himself), but when we see the Hulk in Thor: Ragnarok -- or, even better, Caesar in War for the Planet of the Apes -- one can see the potential in doing the Thing that way.

PS: Has the Badger ever met the Ferret?

@Carycomic: I think you mean "Wisconsin's favorite (MPD) son." Michigan would be Logan of the X-men's favorite state...if he wasn't already Canadian. LOL!

Cary Comic said...

@Bob Greenwade: the Centaur version, the Malibu version, or the Golden Age Timely version?*

*Reportedly killed off in a mini-series about the android Human Torch.

I'd like to see Badger (First) meet Rad I (Americomics).

@Brother Barnes: I thought "Chessie" was the Eastern U.S. Seaboard version of Nessie.*


*As in "Chesapeake Bay Monster."
