Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Most Wanted Sequel Edition

by

Rumors swirl (as rumors are wont to do) in Hollywood that Disney is still planning a reboot/remake of their 1979 science fiction epic, ‘The Black Hole.’  As one of the vocal fans of that movie, I am torn by this plan.  On the one hand, it’d be lovely to get a new version reawaken interest in the original film, but on the other, I’d kind of rather have a sequel to the original film rather than a re-envisioning.  Whitman Comics attempted such a continuation in their comic book line back in the day, but the response to the film put the brakes on that quickly, with issue #4 so scarce that it has become a sought-after treasure in the comic back issue market.  Rationally, I know that ‘Beyond The Black Hole’ is probably a non-starter, as would be the ten years after adventures of Serenity, the story of middle-aged Lloyd Dobler or a new iteration of WKRP In Cincinnati.  Still, here at the MS-QOTD, we don’t deal in reality, which begs today’s Electric Boogaloo query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) wouldn’t mind seeing a middle-aged soccer mom version of ‘Heathers’, though, asking: What sequel would you most want to see?
