THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN could return to TV…again

Man, I remember The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. You;ve got to remember, this was during the first big boom of comic book movies. This was an age where shared universes were a pipe dream and just about every single comic book property around was getting snapped up like free food at a rock concert. It explains how we got movies such as the superb Hellboy and the rather decent gem of Bulletproof Monk. It also explains how we got Sean Connery phoning it in, in The LXG. The X made it more extreme in the marketing.

And yet, I dug that train-wreck of a movie which starred Victorian-era literary heroes fighting to save the world. In some ways, it was a fun blast. And a property that refuses to stay dead. Per Variety, it looks like Chronicle and Predators producer John Davis is onboard to produce a new adaptation for FOX, who have clearly been watching Penny Dreadful on TV as of late.

It’s not the first time that FOX has flirted with the idea of reviving the League, as back in 2013 Fox was attempting to bring the graphic novel to the small screen with Michael “Green Lantern” Green serving as showrunner and executive producer.

Fox made a put pilot commitment but the show didn’t move forward beyond that to a series. Still, it’s a property worth exploring. If only so that I can see Captain Nemo’s bitchin’ ride again.

  1. I never understood the huge criticism this movie got… Sure, it wasn’t the greatest movie ever made. But it was entertaining. And surely that’s what counts? It entertained me – I was happy to have watched it… And I mean it was a damn side better than fellow superhero movies like Daredevil (the movie, not the new series) and the original, emo-tinged “Hulk” (gosh that movie was a GIANT snore fest! And it’s a freakin’ Hulk movie – how can a Hulk movie put you to sleep?!)…

        Yup – that’s the one! I, literally, almost fell asleep while watching it at the cinema! And I’d just been to have espresso with a friend… I just found it a complete snore-fest.

        The 2nd Hulk movie (The Incredible Hulk) with Edward Norton was WAY better in my opinion. Still not perfect, but much, much better to watch and enjoy.

          The first one was very crappy. The Edward Norton one was good, so good I watch it whenever DSTV has a rerun. I think we overdue for a good Hulk solo movie.
