Well, Wolverine isn't the only character from the X-Men films who's getting his own movie. It was announced today that they'll be making a film all about...


It's being described as "The Pianist meets X-Men." Remember the opening scene of X-Men, where Magneto is being dragged off to the Nazi concentration camp? Well, that's where the movie starts. We then follow Magneto's journey to adulthood, as he learns to control his power, seeks vengeance for his parents' death, has his concentration camp liberated at the hands of a young American soldier named Charles Xavier, how he and Charles became friends and later, enemies.

I'm not too sure that this'll work, but I'll give it a shot.

And I've just been thinking about cartoons. I've been watching my Gargoyles DVD over and over. You know, they've done this very famous comic book called 40 Days of Night, about an Alaskan town that has 40 days of darkness during the year and vampires descending on the town to paint the town red. You could probably do a great Gargoyles take off of that, about Arctic gargoyles who are awake for 6 months then stone for 6 months.

And then there's Jem. You know, we've had a recent rash of manufacture pop stars being exposed, such as the lip synch scandals with Ashlee Simpson and Lindsay Lohan. If done properly, Jem could be a very witty satire of all that. What is Jerrica Benton but the ultimate manufacture pop star?
