7 Animated Marvel Movies That Should Be Made
There are a lot of great Marvel stories that won’t get live-action adaptations. Now, DC dominates the animated movie side of things, but now that Marvel has Disney behind them they should start developing a few direct-to-video projects.
Sony is releasing an animated Spider-Man movie in 2018 featuring Miles Morales instead of Peter Parker, a smart way to introduce the fun character to a larger audience. Some stories just don’t need live-action adaptions, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be turned into animated features. Modern 2D animation is looking better than ever, and I think the Mouse House need to invest a little bit of time into these endeavors.
So here are my top 7 Marvel stories that should be turned into animated movies. I know some of these characters might be owned by studios other than Disney, so Fox and Sony should be paying attention also. Are yours not on the list?
