Big thanks to deano 11. I made an exception for "The Shadow" and "The Green Hornet" who appeared in radio and pulp magazine's long before they became a comic book characters.
This list also doesn't includes fan films with the exception of "Punisher : Dirty laundry" which is a professionally made fan film with Thomas Jane (who played the Punisher).
This list includes short movies that were professionally made by the big studios .
"Conan the Barbarian" , "Conan the Destroyer" , "Red Sonja" , "Kull the Conqueror" and "Solomon Kane" are movies based on the books by Robert E. Howard. Comic books were made about them much later. That's why they don't appear on this list.
"Le petit Nicolas" was created by famous comic book writer Rene Goscinny , but it's a children's book not a comic book. It's not a comics , so you won't find it here.
Characters like Predator , Alien , Jurassic park dinosaurs or Bugs Bunny (and many others) also appeared in comic books, but they aren't comic book characters , so that's why they don't appear here.
With all respect to manga and anime fans , but I didn't put too many movies based on Asian comic books. Why ? Simply because there is too many of them . I could spend my whole life adding them to list and still the list would be incomplete. I've tried to put as many iconic and well known anime/manga movies I could. Considering that the most iconic are here (Dragonball, Pokemon and others) I think I did well.
