I know. I don’t believe it either.

Duncan Jones, he of Warcraft, Source Code and, more importantly, Moon, has said he’s going to do a comic book movies next.

There are articles across the interwebs certain it’s not anything to do with the big two (DC or Marvel). A number of them mention publishers like Image or Dark Horse and the kind of properties they (the writers of said articles) have in mind.

But I’m hopeful a forthcoming movie will be based on a character from The Galaxy’s Greatest Comic.

2000AD.

Other than Judge Dredd, there are loads, LOADS, of characters in 2000AD who could carry a really exciting film.

Rogue Trooper. A genetically engineered soldier, the last one of his kind, who searches for the General who betrayed his own.

Strontium Dog. A mutant bounty hunter business.

The A.B.C. Warriors. Seven warrior robots drawn together to go to Mars and fight for humanity.

Nemesis the Warlock. A demon shaped alien who fightes against the fascism of a distant future earth.

There are loads, loads more. I’d love for a Nemesis/A.B.C. Warriors movie. That kind of thing is probably unfilmable but, my god, it would incredible to watch.

Of course, I’d be equally as happy with a sequel to Karl Urban’s Dredd.
