Marvel Zombies: The Animated Movie?

You know, maybe it’s the geek in me, but the idea of a “Marvel Zombies” movie fills me with all kinds of glee. I loved the comics, especially the first series; the second series is okay, but not great. In any case, word from Shock Til You Drop is that Marvel is now considering an animated “Marvel Zombies” movie.

More:

We’ve heard through the grapevine a “Marvel Zombies” direct-to-DVD feature is in development. Unfortunately, we don’t have a status of where the film is at or have a release date.

“Marvel Zombies” began as a comic book mini-series and featured “zombified” versions of pretty much all of your favorite superheroes. Set in an alternate universe (natch), the series most recently introduced Ash (from the “Evil Dead” franchise) to do battle with the likes of undead Wolverine, Spidey, et al.

It could be that this fan-made trailer for a live-action “Marvel Zombies” movie got Marvel interested.

The only qualms I might have with an animated “Marvel Zombies” movie is the rating; Marvel’s other animated films have all been PG-rated, and the “Zombies” one, if done right, would have to be a “R”, or at the very least, a “PG-13″. I’m not sure Marvel would be willing to do that, so the idea of a “Marvel Zombies”, even an animated one, just doesn’t sound all that plausible to me.

I hope I’m wrong…

Look whose coming to dinner. Er, for dinner. What?

    As with all comic book movies, even animated, character introductions usually bore us avid geeks with character development, backend character stories..etc. Hopefully, since this is straight to dvd, this won’t happen. I think this would be an awesome animated “R” rated feature that would set standards for other movie producers to follow. The story is already amazing, and everyone knows who Spiderman, Hulk, and Ironman are. Giantman, Wasp and to some extent, Thor wont be big names until their movies come out in 2010. I really hope Marvel Zombies “the movie”, is truly in production and they don’t mess it up. I am really looking forward to this and have high expectations.

    I agree, this movie would definately need to be somewhere in the ballpark of rated R, that way it has the full effect. No character intros, those who dont know marvel really need to read about it before watching the dvd. Either that or have a whole section on the dvd explaining the characters, the universe, etc. No need to ruin the movie by putting in too many details on who the character is, it gets boring for those of us who know who they are.

    I think an animated cartoon, not digital animation, just detailed drawn, would be better than an actual movie. So much more you can do with animation than you can in real life. Dont get me wrong, Ironman kicked butt as a real movie. But, with the details and everything, I think it would be better for this movie, instead of having so many special effects and not enough good acters to actually play the parts, they could just do animation. I CANT WAIT (even though this kind of upset me when i first read it, to think of heroes eating and killing eachother, and spidey eating mary jane and his aunt).

    they should make a cgi movie of it just how they did on resident evil degeneration. But not based on the comics or else people will know whats going to happen before it does. they should make a team of super heroes that survived forming an alliance with the villains that survived the virus. they should all be lead by deadpool seeing that he is the one with most experienced with weapons.Characters like Gambit, nightcrawler,juggernaut,magneto,doom,the green goblin,spiderman,the punisher, cable,daredevil, and a few lower class heroes should be among the survivors. While on the infected zombies side, iron man would be leading the zombie;wolverine,captain america,the fantastic four, the hulk,hob goblin,colossus,elektra,kitty pride,and the rest of the zombies that managed not to kill each other trying to feed.
