They may not have the iconic scene of previous Star Trek/Marvel crossovers in which we get to see Spock using the Vulcan nerve pinch on Wolverine, truely a moment to be savoured, and it maybe a little random (ok very random) but it is something that opens up my mind to some wonderful possibilities…and it got me thinking about how comicbook adaptions are all the rage and the fan talk of a TNG reboot perhaps the two ideas should be combined? Now i know your thinking ‘What The Spock’ but bare with me, if you just consider the potential cast then this has the making of a great movie;
Patrick stewart (cause however we try we just can’t bring ourselves to think of any actor to replace him as picard)
The list goes on and on…
Ok so i know great cast doesn’t necessarily mean great movie (I remember my disappointment watching The Crystal Skull) but you can’t deny it would be hard for such a cast to let us down. Plus there are so many talented directors/writers who are working on bringing comicbook adaptions to the big screen, just see this month’s copy of TotalFilm, there is the potential for an absolutely mindblowing story, the new Batman being exhibit A. So studios if ever there was ever a time for you to take a risk and be a bit crazy and make such an adaption the momemt is now…I know its just a impossible dream but if Star Trek has made me do anything it taught me to dream the impossible.
