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?

    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.

    When I first heard of Marvel Zombies, I curious. Then after reading it, I got pissed, superheroes eating the ones they loved, the wasp just a head. But, as I went on, it was a great story. The first reaction was a clever hook shared by many marvel fans at the sight of their beloved heroes on a zombified spree.

    This would definitely have to be animated. Not CGI, just cartoon based like the new Hulk vs Wolverine/Hulk vs Thor. The budget for this will not be high, seeing as the fan base is pretty much set and may not grow any at the release of a movie. Animated is the cheapest to do, while still being able to do a good job.

    I cant wait for this to happen. I want it to follow along the comic books, maybe add some extras, but follow the story.
