With the news that Sony is fast-tracking a superhoine movie that will hit the big screen before the turn of the decade (http://www.empireonline.com/news/story.asp?NID=41823), I thought this would be a good time to weigh in with my suggestions for My Top 11 Superheroines in need of the big screen treatment! Just in case the studios were wondering…
I’ll be honest with you. I’d sooner watch a movie featuring this fantastic new and improved version of Batwoman than another Batman movie.
I know. She’s already received the big screen treatment. Still, rather than play second banana to Iron Man and the rest of The Avengers, I’d love to see Natasha Romanoff headline her own big screen adventure. Less alien swarms invading the Earth and more espionage, counter-espionage, and reverse counter-counter-espionage with a twist of lime.
Yes, there was a movie called Domino that came out in 2005. A terrible movie. And a different Domino. A kick-ass protagonist with a bit of a mean streak to boot.
Like Jennifer Garner, let’s forget that other movie never happened and start fresh.
Mystery! Suspense! Intra-dimensional travel! And one awesome heroine!
A great character with a narrative that spans most of the 20th century. There’s potential here for a dozen movies. Also, love the accent.
Agent for a super-secret government organization called “The Noh”, operating in near-future Japan.
A female superhero to rival Superman!
Magic, mysticism, and a provocative and engaging narrative. If the big screen version could look half as good as the comic, it would be spectacular.
Brilliant attorney by day, kick-ass superhero by – er – also day. As far removed from The Hulk as Spiderman is from Superman. Number two on this wish list after Batwoman.
Because I have a soft spot for female mercenaries.
Come on. This one’s way overdue.
