You will miss Spider-Man!
You will miss Spider-Man!

Is anyone really psyched for the new Fantastic Four?  You know, with the Internet troll version of Doom and the FF made up of people who maybe hit puberty last week?  I think I’m more anticipating Batsoup, truth be told.  Maybe Batman can ask The Thing if he bleeds.

1.21 Gigawatts: Jimmy Revisits A Comic Book Movie Post From Y2K

"A Watchmen movie?  Don't hold your breath." - Jimmy Impossible circa 2000
“A Watchmen movie? Don’t hold your breath.” – Jimmy Impossible circa 2000

Before I started writing endless Secret Wars posts for Gabbing Geek, I used to work on and write for a site called the Hollywood Stock Brokerage & Resource (HSBR, no “&”, I don’t care what you say).  It was a (the best) Hollywood Stock Exchange (HSX) fansite.  While the site has unfortunately closed it’s doors, I still interact with most of the group on a daily basis.  Gabbing Geek founding member Ryan “don’t call me hose311” Garcia was also a contributor to HSBR and foolishly recruited me here.

In recently rambling writing about Superman: Earth One, I mentioned that around the turn of the new millennium I wrote an article that Rising Stars by Earth One writer J. Michael Straczynski would make a great movie.  While I pulled that observation out of the Impossible memory vaults, I wondered what else I had written in said article, and if any of them had come to pass.

So let’s hop in the Delorean, look into the Pensieve, travel naked back in time courtesy of Skynet and revisit and update that post.
