How To Fix CBM's in 6 Easy Steps...
As a long time comic book and CBM fan, I have been very frustrated at how Hollywood handles CBM's so I have created a list of rules for them to follow. These are my starting point I made and or revise these later:
1. Know Your Source Material—know the source material you are going to use for the movie, and use as much of the story as you can. If you are going to do Demon in a Bottle, do the storyline justice, not some lame halfhearted attempt.
2. Know Your Hero—if you are going to cast someone to play a character, make sure that the person can act and looks as much like the character as possible.
Good Casting—Robert Downey, Jr. as Iron Man
Bad Casting—Seth Rogen as Green Hornet.
3. Know Your Villain—if you are going to have a particular villain in a movie, make sure that they are portrayed as close to the source material as you can. That way you avoid embarrassing moments like the Green “Power Ranger” Goblin in Spider-Man 1.
4. Pick a Villain—one of the biggest mistakes that Hollywood makes is having too many villains in a movie. Pick a villain and stick with it. If your villain cannot carry a whole movie, then you need to rethink your choice, the only exception to this if the “villain” is an organization like Hydra, Serpent Society, etc.
5. Avoid Recycling Villains—if a particular villain has already been used in a movie, pick a different villain. How many versions of the Joker or the Green Goblin do we really need?
6. No Doubling Up—if a particular actor has already been cast as one CBM related character do not cast that person in a second CBM role, especially if the character is related to the same universe. A good example of this Chris Evans as the Human Torch
