The director of X-Men: The Last Stand to adapt Rob Liefield's Youngblood.

My gut reaction is: Ugh. I'll stand by that.

I wonder if Ratner will attempt to maintain the ridiculous anatomy of Liefield's art style? That might actually be good for a laugh.

Of all the comics one could adapt to film they pick Youngblood! It was a bad comic made by a bad artist and to be directed by, at the very least, a not so great director. I second your "ugh."



I know you're a feminist and I think that's adorable, but this is grown-up time and I'm the man.

    “Most of the great graphic novels are gone, and ‘Youngblood’ is one of the few comicbooks left with tentpole potential,” Ratner told Daily Variety. “It was a real personal passion project for me, and a lot of people wanted (‘Youngblood’), but the amazing thing about the guys at Reliance is the speed with which they’re able to move.”


I would love someone (not Ratner) to try and bring Squadron Supreme to the big screen. It was a pretty awesome mini series.

And John, thanks for that link. I have never been a fan of Liefeld's work and they are spot on with every critique. Liefeld just doesn't understand how the human body is supposed to look.

You know, Alan Moore did a few Youngblood issues, and I wonder if his name was dangled in front of the studio to greenlight the movie.

Youngblood? in 2009?

Huh.

Gotta say though, given their resumes to date, Rattner and Liefeld are a natural fit. Not a good natural fit, but there it is.

Ugh.

Shockingly, real women, even real women with implants in multiple places, can't look like a Liefield drawing. Human women have human spines...

I was mildly amused by the first two segments. The Twilight parody, however, was awesome...when they stuck to the source material. As soon as they deviated into the stuff about Edmond being Dracula's son, they lost me.
