I'm inclined to agree.

I mean kudos to UK for coming up with so much detail, but it was what...seven films or so? No non-horror licensed property comes out in seven films and succeeds...especially from a comic. I mean, Star Wars is arguably the biggest fanboy movie franchise of all time, and the 3 prequels were nothing more than jumped up toy adverts.

The only exception that springs to mind is Harry Potter...and that was going to be a movie per book from the outset. Most of the time one film is made, the critics comment and the public have their say financially, then your chance for a sequel comes around (hence the tendency to leave the sequel as a cliffhanger and film two movies together to score extra $$ with a trilogy: Back to the Future, The Matrix, etc).

Spidey almost got through 3 films before collapsing into an emo whinefest. Superman...well, he and Bats got the Ultimate treatment, so they're starting from #1 again. The FF probably have one more movie in the works, maybe two. The Punisher's getting a sequel, minus Tom Jane. The Hulk's getting a remake of #1. Blade bit the dust after #2 financially. Thor? Well...we'll see if/how they screw that up soon enough.

I can't see Thor getting more than 3 movies. Period.

To be honest, with the info we have thus far? I don't think I'll even like the one film he is getting.

There is KRUST enough for all. \:\-D

Twelve.

James Bond, Harry Potter, Godzilla

> ...especially from a comic.

So you are saying there won't be a Batman Begins 3 (aka Batman #7)?

> I mean, Star Wars is arguably the biggest fanboy movie franchise of all time, and the 3 prequels were nothing more than jumped up toy adverts.

They were good space fantasy epic movies, if not reaching the dizzying heights of the original trilogy (as seen through the nostalgia tinged spectacles of youth). I didn't like Phantom Menace much myself but when they got rid of young Anakin (for the two sequels) the movies picked up.

Your argument that it can't be done is illogical. It simply hasn't been done YET.
