    Default League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Reboot

    League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Movie Reboot In Development I actually really liked the original movie (one of the few) so I look forward to this and hope it's more true to the comics.

    I feel a series would be more appropriate considering the source material, but ... okay. I look forward to seeing this new iteration.

    Somewhere Alan Moore is probably rolling his eyes as he downs a pint in the snug of some pub over the news of this and I find it amusing.

    I love how they say the movie was so bad it convinced Sean Connery to retire, when he had said, going in, that it would be his last movie.
    Power with Girl is better.

    He was also a miserable SOB to the director.

    I really enjoyed the movie myself. Would love to see another one.

    League is one of those rare movies where I don't mind the original one really, but I also wouldn't mind a reboot either. In other words, I can see room for improvement. (though I don't expect this reboot will improve on anything sadly)
    Things I love: Batman, AEW, old films, Lovecraft

    I am looking forward for this. I had a really good time with the first one. A shame the sequel they were setting up never happened. I really want the Jekyll and Hyde to be as good. I loved them the most.
    Favorite teams. Alpha Flight, Avengers, Fantastic Four, West Coast Avengers, Justice Society of America, Legion of Superheroes.

    I remember thinking that Hyde was one of the best practical effects of the decade back when the original first aired, really first class effects. I imagine he'll be done completely with CGI this go around.

    It will suffer from the exact same problem as the first. Hideously massive licensing issues.

    Curious about that. If the characters the book used were public domain, are there different rights problems for movie adaptations? Sure I read something once about how it's not cut-and-dried that Universal held film rights to Dracula, for instance.

    Book and movie domains are very different for one. Look at the mess that is King Kong.
