Heroes on the big screen

Geoff Boucher of the Los Angeles Times, using “Ghost Rider” as an example, says Hollywood is running out of A-list superheroes and is turning to “second-class men in tights.” He offers up some other characters “that are very likely available and, even likelier, pretty cheap.” Among them: Black Canary, Matter-Eater Lad from the Legion of Super-Heroes and Marvel’s Dazzler.

It’s tongue in cheek, but it does raise the question of what other heroes would you like to see on the big screen. (I got an e-mail today from a big Thor fan wondering about progress on the planned Thor movie.) I’d like to see the Flash race on to the big screen, and I know that’s in the works. I think a Green Lantern movie could be cool. And when are we going to see that solo Wolverine movie?
