With The Dark Knight Rises at the box office and Christopher Nolan’s imminent departure from the helm of the Bat-franchise, what better time to do a fantasy casting call for one of the most beloved, cinematic arcs in all of Bat-dom? Of course, we are talking about Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, a seminal DC tale that took Batman to the brink of old age while at the same time reinvigorating a franchise with vital new energy.
Here at Major Spoilers, we strive to bring you the best in news and reviews from the broad spectrum of the pop culture world. With all the excitement and speculation over the past month about a Justice League movie, as well as the Major Spoilers Podcast in which Stephen, Matthew, Rodrigo and Rob discussed how they would do a Justice League movie, staff writer Jimmy just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share his ideal Justice League movie – an homage to the classic Keith Giffen, J.M. DeMatteis and Kevin Maguire run.
A movie that encapsulates magic the gathering would take forever to make, right? Well not to worry giant Hollywood studio that is certainly reading this, I have done all the casting for you already. I await my check.
It’s summertime, and you know what that means? It’s Comic Book Movie season. Already this year we’ve seen Thor, and X-Men: First Class. But with Green Lantern, Captain America, and Cowboys vs. Aliens just around the corner, we at Major Spoilers believe that another favorite comic book should see the glow of the silver screen. That comic book is Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener’s “Atomic Robo”. Take the jump, and see who made the cut.
Batman XXX: A Porn Parody has been doing very well for Vivid Entertainment, holding on to the top sales and rental charts for adult videos for eight weeks in a row. Star Wars is up next as Stephen reported earlier this week, and adult film director Axel Braun has already gone on record to say Superman XXX: A Porn Parody is on the way. But what of Wonder Woman? Shouldn’t she get the adult video treatment, too? This week, we’re poking fun at the adult genre with the Comic Casting Couch of Wonder Woman XXX: A Porn Parody – The
This weekend is a special one for Major Spoilers, as the little website that could turns four. We thought it might be interesting to take our weekly Comic Casting Couch and see what would happen if H’wood made a movie of our adventures.
While the Justice League and Avengers are the big two teams that most comic book readers are aware of, it was Justice League International that really got me into the team concept. While that series did feature a lot of fun stories, it was the teaming of Booster Gold and Blue Beetle that had me coming back for more. This week, the Comic Casting Couch teams Michael Carter and Ted Kord in the first real superhero buddy movie – The Blue and the Gold!
Doc Savage is making a comeback, and over the next couple of years we’re going to see him not only in comic books, but in a movie that has been in the works for a while. Before official casting is announced, we thought we’d cast our net far and wide and pick our own actors to fill the major roles.
Batgirl has been one of those characters I think many in Hollywood want to make a viable movie franchise property, but has floundered under the shadow of Batman. What producers haven’t realized is that a strong female lead and a stand alone movie can be achieved with the right chemistry, the right story, and above all, the right actors in front of the camera. This week’s Comic Casting Couch shines the spotlight on Batgirl. But don’t worry, this isn’t some crappy Birds of Prey television series. This is a movie that could herald in the age of successful female superheroes.
Welcome back to another installment of the Comics Casting Couch, where we take comic books and their characters and pitch ideas and actors for Hollywood to consider. This week, we’re putting a twist in our traditional methods, and casting the net through the ages to pull the best actors from any time period, and at any age, to fill the roles being cast in our little production of Captain Marvel.

Welcome to the third installment of The Comic Casting Couch! A few weeks ago, I placed a poll up on the Major Spoilers forum and asked which of five different characters you would like to see me give the Comic Casting Couch treatment. After two weeks of voting, it seems that the winner has been crowned, THE WAY OF THE IRON FIST!
Once again, we travel to the recesses of my imagination and wonder, what if they where to let me make a movie with the comic characters of my choice? Yes, I to can hear Hollywood giving a collective GASP of horror! Well, this time, my choice is BLACK LIGHTNING!
Take one bored writer, access to the Intardwebz, and a up and coming comic book series, throw it in a pot and set it to boil, and you wind up with The Comic Casting Couch – a look at who Stacy B. would cast in his imaginary movie.Â This time out – Firestorm: The Nuclear Man. Plot: Dr. Martin Stein, a scientist in the employee of the Hewitt Corporation, has developed a matter/conversion machine using a revolutionary power source he calls the Firestorm Matrix.
