Which Marvel Comics Character Would Damon Lindelof Most Like To Adapt For The Screen?

EXCLUSIVE: I asked Prometheus co-writer and big comic book fan Damon Lindelof which character he would be interested in bringing to the big screen. He also gives his thoughts on Christopher Nolan's Batman, and Marvel's The Avengers..

Interviews Opinion

Damon Lindelof should be very well known to CBMers. One of the creators and showrunners of Lost, he has since gone on to work on the likes of J.J Abrams' Star Trek reboot and John Favreau's Cowboys And Aliens. His latest project was co-writing the screenplay for Ridley Scott's Prometheus, and he was kind enough to have a chat with me all about that. But knowing how big a comic book fan he is (he actually wrote the Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk miniseries) I also slipped in a CBM related question. It seems Mr Lindelof is a big Iron Fist fan..



MC: So which character or characters would you most like to adapt for the screen and why?

DL: Well there's a huge part of me that wold somehow like to be involved in a Batman movie, but now that I've seen what Christopher Nolan has done with it I just don't think that anyone is ever going to do better. Sooner or later someone may have the audacity to do so, but It's not going to be me! I think I would rather do a character that not many people knew, and maybe saw as lame and couldn't carry their own movie. One character I've always loved is Iron Fist, and Matt Fractions incredible run with him a couple of years back. I always thought that would make a really cool movie. But I am hard pushed to think of me doing anything better than The Avengers which I just thought was phenomenal.

MC: Yeah it was great alright. But Iron Fist is interesting because there has been talk at Marvel in the past about getting that movie off the ground, I'm not sure anything ever went to the script stage though..

DL: Yeah well I mean I think it's because he's even more fringy than Iron Man was, and also because he's called IRON Fist they may be worried about some confusion with the Iron Man franchise, even though obviously they are very different characters. But I have to imagine that with the success of The Avengers, they are planning to give Black Widow and Hawkeye their own spin-offs, and there are many more characters on the fringe of the Marvel universe that I feel are equally worthy, like Iron Fist.

What do you guys think? Is it time for an Iron Fist movie? Would you like to see Damon Lindelof holding the pen? Sound off below, and be sure to keep an eye on CBM for the full interview over the weekend, and my review of Prometheus later on today.
