The 5 Weirdest Super Hero Adaptations Ever

  • Cinelinx
There have been some very good super-hero adaptations, some very bad ones, and some very weird ones. Here are five film and TV reworkings of popular super heroes that made fans scratch their heads and say “Wha…?”

The 3 Mighty Men (Aka 3 Dev Adam): Better known as Turkish Spider-Man, this strange, low-budget 1973 super hero flick has Captain America teaming up with popular masked Mexican wrestler El Santo, to fight the evil villain—Spider-Man? Yes, Spider-Man is the villain in this one. With the help of a slim Kingpin and some female henchwomen, Spidey stabs, strangles and even uses carnivorous gerbils to slay his victims. I’m not sure why Captain America is operating in Turkey, or why he doesn’t have a shield, or why he’s teaming with a Mexican wrestler, or why Spider-Man is criminal now, and what the hell what up with those puppets?

Blu-ray Review – Lord of the Flies (1963)

Lord of the Flies, 1963.

Directed by Peter Brook.

Starring James Aubrey, Tom Chapin, Hugh Edwards, Tom Gaman, Roger Elwin, Nicholas Hammond

Synopsis :

A group of boys survive a plane crash on a deserted tropical island. Divisions and splits in the social structure soon become apparent and a descent into violence and savagery looks to be inevitable.

Adapted from William Golding’s novel, The Lord of the Flies is a compelling adaptation of the work, drawing together much of the source material’s fearful ruminations on the state of society. As anyone familiar with the novel (a set text in many schools and colleges worldwide) will remember, the threat of human violence and aggression is possible anywhere. This nightmarish realisation is the central theme of the story and gets no less shocking with age. What might be interesting – particularly in the light of the news of a mooted all-female version

What 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Gets Right About Being a Teenage Superhero

What 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Gets Right About Being a Teenage Superhero
[Warning: This story contains spoilers for Sony/Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming.]

Spider-Man: Homecoming is, and isn't, a typical origin story. It is in the sense that its narrative serves to distinguish this version of the character from a couple of other iterations, everything from recent movie Spider-Men Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield to musical-theater Spider-Guys Reeve Carney and Justin Matthew Sargent (let us not dwell on live-action TV Spider-Dudes Shinji Todo and Nicholas Hammond). But Homecoming is not a typical origin story in the sense that it doesn't rehash the same, "Got bit by a radioactive spider, then my uncle died, now I gotta fight...

Stan Lee Hated 1970s 'Amazing Spider-Man' TV Series

Viewers may have been blown away by the Amazing Spider-Man live-action CBS series in late 1970s, but there was one person who hated it: Stan Lee

In an interview unearthed by Heat Vision, Spidey's co-creator said the show, which ran for two seasons and starred Nicholas Hammond as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, missed the mark. 

"The Spider-Man TV series I was very unhappy with because very often, people will take a novel, let's say, and bring it to the screen ... and they will leave out the one element, the one quality that made the novel a best-seller," Lee explained. "With Spider-Man, I felt...

10 Comic Book Movies That Aren’t Based On Comic Books

HanWay Films

Throw a stone at your local multiplex and you’ll more than likely hit someone on their way into a comic book movie. When I grew up I had to make do with Nicholas Hammond as Spider Man and Bill Bixby as The Incredible Hulk. We didn’t have any of that CGI sorcery in those days, you know. Today’s audience is treated to a smorgasbord of costumed cinematic mayhem every other week, be they acne-ridden teens or life-ridden adults.

Such is the hold that Marvel and DC exert on the box office the non-spandexed competition is squeezed out like a frankfurter from the bun of an overloaded hot dog. 1989’s Batman changed the rules of filmic conquest, and since then studios and indies alike have wanted a bite out of that super-powered pie.

Have Jurassic Dinosaurs Truly Kicked Marvel Superheroes Butt at Worldwide Box Office?

'Jurassic World' velociraptor kicks Iron Man ass at worldwide box office. 'Jurassic World' officially surpasses 'The Avengers' at worldwide box office Directed by Colin Trevorrow; starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Vincent D'Onofrio; and co-executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, Jurassic World has officially become the third biggest worldwide box office hit in history. The Jurassic Park sequel – or reboot, as it's basically the same story with a slightly different twist – has surpassed Marvel's Joss Whedon-directed all-star superhero flick The Avengers, which broke box office records back in 2012. Of course, "officially" just ain't what it used to be – like, in the days before The Fall. So you wisely ask, "But which movie has actually sold the most tickets?" After all, that's the true measure of a film's popularity. Well, that's a tough one to answer without the studios providing accurate, precise numbers. And that's not about to happen. It always

Actor, Academy Award Nominee Dead at 91.") Although British made, Oliver! turned out to be an elephantine release along the lines of – exclamation point or no – Gypsy, Star!, Hello Dolly!, and other Hollywood mega-musicals from the mid'-50s to the early '70s.[1] But however bloated and conventional the final result, and a cast whose best-known name was that of director Carol Reed's nephew, Oliver Reed, Oliver! found countless fans.[2] The mostly British production became a huge financial and critical success in the U.S. at a time when star-studded mega-musicals had become perilous – at times downright disastrous – ventures.[3] Upon the American release of Oliver! in Dec. 1968, frequently acerbic The

Spider-Man Should Appear On a Small Screen Series Before Being In an McU Movie

  • Cinelinx
With Spider-Man finally joining the Disney/Marvel Cinematic Universe, he needs to be reintroduced to audience in order to establish his newest interpretation. The best way to do this would be to introduce him on the small screen—Netflix or Agents of Shield—Before utilizing him in an McU movie.

Disney has a lot of plans on the horizon for the McU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) and they now include Spider-Man. That means the amazing web-spinner has to be introduced to the McU. “Why does he need to be reintroduced?” you might ask. “Everyone knows who Spider-Man is.” True, but no one yet knows what this interpretation of Spider-Man will be like. After all, not every version of Spidey is the same. No one can deny that the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man was quite a bit different from the Andrew Garfield version. And those of us who remember the forgettable, short-lived 1977 TV series The Amazing Spider-Man,
