I wholeheartedly endorse an animated Sinestro Corps movie. That’s honestly very overdue.
For movies based on specific stories, I’d love to see a return to form of the movie character designs mirroring those from the comics, ala The New Frontier and the Superman/Batman movies.
Random choices for animated movies I’d like to see:
- Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E.
Yes, this property isn’t well known outside of comic fandom (it’s not well known in fandom by that much either TBH) but what better way to increase awareness of him? Give the Justice League a small cameo and highlight them in the marketing too. Done deal.
- The Power of Shazam!
This can either be based on the OGN that launched the ongoing series of the same name or an arc from said series. It could also be a brand new story that happens to utilize the name of Shazam’s most well known ongoing series.
Either way, Jerry Ordway should do the character designs.
- Forever Evil.
Like The Sinestro Corps War, I’m surprised this hasn’t been done yet. It’d probably be labeled “Justice League: Forever Evil”, but that’s a-okay as long as the animation matches David Finch’s artwork (it’s still okay if it doesn’t, but it’s preferred if it does).
- Lobo Rides Wild.
For frag’s sake, give The Main Man his movie debut already! Have it be rated R, throw in some space dolphins and have Paul Dini write it (he wrote Lobo for STAS, so why not?).
- Superman: Sacrifice.
The most noteworthy Superman story from 2005 can provide ample ground for a movie. There isn’t much that would need to be changed from the comics and since the art varied by issue, it doesn’t need to adhere to the source material in that manner.
That said, Ed Benes did the art for the prelude and first parts of Sacrifice, so the movie mirroring his art would be fine by me.
That’s my random Top Five. I’d love to see an animated New Gods movie too, but I’d prefer to see that as a big budget theatrical release. After the live action movie comes out is when that would work best.
