 With the success of Blade (1998) and then the X-Men, Spider-Man and Batman Franchises, Comics have been HUGE money makers for Hollywood.  However, most people still forget that these stories and MANY more came from comics.  Comics haven’t been just a read for kids in a long time.  In the article, I provide 6 FREE SITES where you can get in on the fun and CREATE YOUR OWN COMICS.  Have we seen the end of comics in movies?  Why do you think Hollywood is so interested in making movies from comic books?  What are some other sources that Hollywood can use to make movies?  Explain your answers.

    Because if you see a really good money-making comic you are going to see if you cane make it into a movie to get some money too

    Well, Hollywood could use TV shows for movies. And i think they would make movies off of actual events. I can’t really think of anything else they could make into movies. Only because most of our movies are from comic books. We could use animals to make movies, for what they do in their life.

    I don’t think that comics are completely token out. I think comics still have a long way to go. I think they’re interested in making movies from comics, because they’re awesome. They also, know that comics have a long way to go. Other sources could be, peoples lives, thrillers, scary movies, Things based on true stories, etc. They think all of these kinds of movies will make them a lot of money, and they’re usually right. It’s once in a blue moon that you ever see a really stupid movie, that you just can’t stand.

    i don’t think that we have seen the end of the comics because they don’t always put the very end on the story they are telling. i think that another source they can use probably can be putting the movies in favorite websites that they are sure people are going to watch the movies. i think that Hollywood is so interested on making movies out of comics because they probably know that some kids are interested in seeing how the whole story goes. Hollywood is also probably interested in making movies out of comics because they see that the stories don’t get finished and besides it must be hard trying to make a comic. I think that the reason why we don’t sometimes see the very end of the story is because they want you to predict what might happen.

    I think Hollywood is creating more movies based off of comics because they sell a lot better then normal movies so they go to sites for comic lovers and pretend to be a Fan of whatever the comic is about and they find out whats so cool about it and they add their own twist to it.

    No not really just because people want to make movies out of the comics people will just make more comics for more movies. Well they are interested because they have a lot of action and adventure in them, and many people like action movies like Batman and Spiderman. Real life stories could be one cause be like mysteries and funny ones and some real life stories are like that, newspapers can help make movies, and books can really help make movies.

    I think that Hollywood likes making movies from comic books because they know that people like to read comic books, so Hollywood probably thinks that they will also enjoy a movie just like it. I think that they could read old stories or funny stories and make movies about them. Or even more life experiences about people. I think that since people don’t read comics as much, Hollywood doesn’t make movies from comic books much anymore.

    No i think the end of comics into movies is far away because they are still making movies from comics like that Scott vs…. movie it came out not to long ago i think. They can use books and poems and things to make movies off of. Technology is so good that they can probably make a movie just off a sang or quote. And they are so interesting because lots of kids are interested in them so they can make good money just off a movie.

    Well I never watched a a comic movie. Hollywood is making movies from comic books because they want to try something new that people might enjoy. Well the people who enjoy the comics in the newspaper stuff like that; Hollywood can have something for those kind of people to watch and enjoy them selves. But I think it would look cool to have a a comic movie. I would go see one.

But blade have been killing the vampires when they come out to go to versus blade when the vampires are at night too. When is blade is on the movie two and he had to versus the second vampire that was in his kind however. Then blade have to versus the third vampire and the last vampire is to hard to killed the last one, but the last vampire can shape shift into an bat that as no wings at all then.

    I see how comics become movies. They only do popular movies so there is a lot of viewers. Another resource I know is books. Yet another, video games. I’m pretty sure there will be no more comic movies because we don’t read comics anymore. Usually you only see movies that came from nothing but imagination.

    I think movie producers would want to make movies based on comics is because they think since some kids read comics now and days they want to make the movies interesting and fun to people and even little kids. That is probably made movies based on comics. They use comics to make out the movie and they even think about how they are going to make the characters. They make people look like characters that would be in a comic. That is why movie producers are starting to make movies based on comics.

    no i do not think so because comics are going to become famous and then they will be put into a movie
    i think Hollywood likes to do it because they know there is a lot of people that are going to be interested in buying the movie and its all about the Nonie to them.
    it could be use for the space they have the can make more studio because when they make all the money they make more buildings.

    People don’t understand that you don’t only have to use comics to make movies. They could go to the newspapers and make a movie out of the funny section. They could make more movies out of more books also.

    Hollywood makes so much money off of movies based on comic books because they are so popular and they can make good movies based on other things to besides comic books. There are books that they may make movies based on to. there are a lot of other resources that Hollywood makes movies based on something. Books, life stories, and created thoughts by producers and directors. Comic books are not the only source of movies in Hollywood.

    They should try sorces on important events in history or books or try making ideas from scratch for a change. they could also do some on there lives or some one elses. on events in life or dozens of possibilitys. comics are good to its good thing they started from scratch instead of picking up were the comics left of that could be for a cartoon.

    no i don’t think we’ve seen the end of comics in movies. i still do think they have comics in movies and i think those movies are one of the best because they still make comics out of movies like iron man and hulk and those are from the comic books also. i think Hollywood is interested in making movies from comics because everyone reads them and i think their movies are really good.

    Well, I mean They might make a lot of movies out of comics. but there like really old and stuff and probably tons of people had already read them and don’t want to see them. Like you know how people like the new stuff not the old stuff anymore? I think like that if they do It wouldn’t be that popular because it was made form a old time comic. So yeah 🙂 Oh and Mr. Steed was you scared there was gonna be a tornado! I was! 🙂

    Because people get so much joy out of the comics, it makes it even better to accually see them moving. It more intersesting, and keeps you into the story more, so you dont get bored.

    I don’t think that the end of comic books near because they are making movies about these amzing people who can do all these things that no real human can do. They are getting all of these ideas from comic books. Thats why i think that the end of comic books in movies is not going to happen for a long time.

    To my knowledge of comics were not at the end of any type of comics because obviously the wrighter keeps coming out with more and more different types of characters and things that us humans find interesting and actually buy. I think hollywood is like the most “big” place for movies and things because like it has a nice surrounding and nice weather, its basically a part central place where you can be serious and have fun.Sources that hollywood can also provide money in a way.

    I think that is time go’s on people ant got time,.And don’t won’t find the time to read comics…….So people would rather pay money to watch a movie.Instead of reading the comics in a comic book.And because the action going on in a movie’s producers are gone keep on making movies so they can make more and more money.

Hollywood makes the comics into movies that people will watch. hollywood gets ideas for movies from everywhere.
