Cast Party: Who Should Star in a 'Shazam' Movie?
Cast Party: Who Should Star in a 'Shazam' Movie?
Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist. This week, I'm going with one of the classics: The Marvel Family, aka Shazam. In theory this is a movie that's actually going to be made, but I have no idea what that will look like, so I'm imagining my own.

Cast Party: Who Should Star In A Rebooted 'Hellblazer' Show?
Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist. In the second of our guest editions for Pride Week, Tara Marie wants to see a fresh take on a TV adaptation of Hellblazer, completely divorced from the cancelled 2014 Constantine TV show. This version would take its lead not just from the recently wrapped Constantine: The Hellblazer comic series by James Tynion IV, Ming Doyle, Riley Rossmo, and Ivan Plascencia, but from the Vertigo Hellblazer years and related series like Swamp Thing and Sandman.
Who Should Star in a 'Dykes to Watch Out For' TV Series?
Who Should Star in a 'Dykes to Watch Out For' TV Series?
Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist. This is Pride Week, as you've noticed by now, so I wanted to tackle one of the longest running LGBTQ comics of all time, Alison Bechdel's Dykes to Watch Out For. Bechdel's comic strip ran in underground and queer publications from 1983 to 2008. Everyone remembers it for popularizing the Bechdel-Wallace Test, but to a lot of lesbians and other queer readers, it means a lot more than just that.

Cast Party: Who Should Star in a 'Y: the Last Man' Movie?
Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist. During Pride Week we've invited a couple of guest writers to contribute their ideas for movies with a strong LGBTQ focus. Today we’re casting an imaginary Y: the Last Man movie. Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra’s comic has a number of queer characters, most notably by Dr. Allison Mann --- and I would love to see a movie filled with this many women. The series has been optioned for film and television before, but adaptations have floundered in pre-production. For this movie, we’ll narrow down the focus to Yorick, 355 and Dr. Mann and their odyssey to the doctor’s lab in San Francisco. It’ll be a road trip movie with the trio encountering lots of trouble and a little help along the way.

Cast Party: Who Should Star in a 'Namor, the Submariner' Movie?
Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist. Just last week, news emerged that the movie rights to Namor the Sub-Mariner may have reverted to Marvel Studios, so this seems like the perfect time to imagine what a Sub-Mariner movie might look like. It should play up the contrast between Namor's two worlds. Under the waves is a realm of the fantastic, while a world much like our own exists on land.

Cast Party: Casting A Grant Morrison 'Doom Patrol' Movie
Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist. Back when I envisioned a movie about the Silver Age Doom Patrol, I promised a Grant Morrison-derived sequel, and that's what we're doing this week. Let's call this movie Doom Patrol: The Painting That Ate Paris, after the collected edition of the second arc by Morrison and Richard Case, which it's based on. We'll also include elements of the previous story, Crawling from the Wreckage, to show this bizarre version of the team coming together.
Cast Party: Who Should Star in 'X-Men: 'Return of Magneto'
Cast Party: Who Should Star in 'X-Men: 'Return of Magneto'
The same X-Men series has been running (with some timeline jumps) since 2000, and it’s been a mixed bag at best. Even as people are excited for X-Men: Apocalypse, a lot of fans have suggested that it might be about time to shake things up. So what would an X-Men reboot look like? This week is the fourth in a four part series spanning the month of May, which envisions a full reboot of the X-Men movie franchise. This time we're looking at the '90s era of the X-Men, and the return of Magneto.

Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist. This week is the third in a four part series spanning the month of May, which envisions a full reboot of the X-Men movie franchise. X-Men: Inferno is where things come to a head for our heroes. Mr. Sinister reveals that Madeline Pryor is a clone, which causes her to go full villain and make a deal with the demons that are invading Earth. Demons who have already corrupted Colossus's baby sister. The X-Men thought Dark Phoenix was the worst thing they'd ever face, but now they're fighting Hell itself.
