    A). I think Hollywood makes comic movies because they appeal to people young and old. Adults read the comic as kids, and kids are reading them now. It should be like that for years to come.

    B). Another good source to use is video games. Look at the success of Resident Evil and the upcoming HALO movies. If the game was successful, the movie will be popular.

    A. well i= the same thing applies with any other type of book. like Narnia and the Spiderwick chronicles and Alice in wonderland were all books before they were a movie. Hollywood just would figure if so many people loved the comic, then why would’nt they like the movie even more?!!
    B. people can just make up a movie from maybe a television show. such as “meet the browns”, “spongebob the movie”.

    A. I believe that Hollywood feels that if the comics were that popular, then the movies would be the best thing ever. They figure that okay well people love the comics so imagine how they would actually like to see the characters in action.
    B. Other sources that they could use are things like novels and older versions of movies. They could take an older version of a movie and make a newer version of it as seen on a lot of movies. For instance, there was an older movie called Willy Wonka and the chocolate Factory and then they had made a newer version of the movie and named it Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

    A) i think that Hollywood is so interested in making movies from comic books because comic books used to be a big deal and everyone read them. Yeah there not so popular now but i mean if you can make something that had people reading them all the time int o a movie just think of how much of a hit it could be as a movie and that’s what i think they are looking at when they make comic books into movies.

    B) You know how they base there movies on true stories that have been in the news? Well maybe they should expeirience the real world for once. They do have movies based on a true story but they always have to use actors…. im not saying cut actors out but let the real people show you what the expierience was really like.

    A.) I think they are making comics into movies because they are very good, and already have big fans. they will just make an easy target for the money.

    b.) actual books for example TWILIGHT SAGA’S. that brought a lot of interest. so if they do other big fanned books they might get more money the usual.

    A. well i just think they are just to desperate and stupid to come up with original ideas.
    B. a live yugioh movie could be cool. seeing holographic monsters fighting will look cool. well i dont know much about comics so all i know is shows. but i bet if they get ideas from kids they be better. some kids have good imaginations. you know if there so rich why dont they read a book theres a idea.

    A.) People have enjoyed comics for many years before the movies made after them. Comics started being made probably around 1940 or 1950. Showing that, comics should be a great inspiration to all movie directors.

    B.) Another way hollywood can come up with ideas is from real events that have occurred in the past or what they can see that would happen in the future. Movies like “The Strangers” and “The Lovely Bones” are based on true stories. And when they hit the box office, they were said to be great movies. And of course, they were.

    a) because people love to read them y not watch them and see real people dressed up as a hero. there is not a time were you see a hero on tv and it seem that people love to look at the movies than buy a comic cuz some people dont like toh read cuz im one of those people that hate toh read boojks
    b) they can use the internet and see how many people like it and them make a movie out of it. if they dont like it then a leave a comment toh make the story betta so when they try toh let the movie hit theaters they have lots of people watching it instead of watching another movie

    A) Hollywood is so interested in making movies out of comics because comics are really interesting. Also comics are usually really action based or have good story lines. So they seem like it would be good to make into a movie to run your imagination more further with the story or get you a better idea.

    B) Some other really good sources are tv shows or books. Because maybe they want to make the show more interesting. Or give there own version of a book. Like the harry potters. Or spongebob shows. Both were turned into movies.
