Question...Would it be better if Comic Book movies were animated instead of live action?
After the drama with Watchmen, and the hype Batman has to live up to, I think this could be an easier route. Imagine the money that could be save from using artists versus actors. Honestly, I believe we could benefit so much from that.
Here are the good things.
- No egos from actors or studios.
- The creators can actually tell the story of the comic and stick to what the fans want.
- The budget will be cheaper and studios will save tons of money.
- Nothing would be impossible to do...it's animated.
- The story will be 'THE STORY' for example: The Phoenix Saga would be The Phoenix Saga, not Brett Ratner's mess.
- The art would be upscale and tight.
- DC Comics cartoon movies are really good, think about the specific stories that could be told and done right.
- We could see these movies faster within a year versus four years later.
