Arguably one of the strongest players in the Marvel Universe, Dr. Stephen Strange‘s unique skill-set of both mystic and martial arts should make him a perfect ally (in spite of the difficulties encountered in getting his services). Should be a close toss-up between Jon Hamm and Patrick Dempsey as to who shall wear his iconic Cloak Of Levitation held in place by the Eye Of Agamotto.
1979 CBS TV-movie/failed pilot
His all-black getup with the distinctive pointy-ears often gets him confused with a certain Dark Knight from the Distinguished Competition, but never under-estimate T’Challa, King of Wakanda. He rules an entire African nation supposed to be as rich as real-world Dubai…yet has no qualms jumping across New York City’s rooftops in a bad-ass costume.
Howard The Duck (reboot)
If Marvel Studios can green-light Guardians Of The Galaxy, why not a Howard The Duck reboot? Sure, the Lucasfilm-produced live-action version was a total dog (a midget dressed in what looks like some rejected football team mascot suit playing “Howard”) but with today’s advances in CGI (think Ted!) I guess it must be high time someone gives this character another chance. Let’s see if Disney can now put a pair of pants into this duck this time around – but not until he flips the bird on some Star Wars character expies (no sweat, since Disney owns both Lucasfilm & Marvel …heheheh)
Top 10 Most Disturbing Howard The Duck Moments by Cablogula
Marvel’s kiddie superheroes seem long overdue for a big-screen leap, what with new backing from the family-friendly Disney merchandising empire. Think of the possibilities…a possible cross-over with Disney’s own The Incredibles???
Luke Cage (Power Man)
I wouldn’t be surprised if they get Dwayne Johnson to play Luke Cage. He looks credibly athletic, with a build befitting the badass character…and rocks a chrome-dome like Samuel L. Jackson‘s Nick Fury. Why not a cameo by no less than Nicholas Cage (who owes his screen name to aforementioned character)?
