Best of the Worst: Supergirl, Captain America (1990), and Roger Corman's Fantastic Four

  • Published on Mar 14, 2014
  • Superhero movies don't seem to be going away anytime soon. Let's take a look back at the awkward years of comic book characters being brought to the silver screen with three notorious comic adaptation failures, including the infamous, never-officially-released Fantastic Four movie produced by Roger Corman.

    Do they reference the nineties Captain America in The Winter Soldier?

    uh guys? Thinking there's something wrong with a story about women being strongly motivated to find a man... that's probably not gonna play well with your lonely nerd audience, just saying. I'm sure you've all found someone because you have the confidence and drive to be in youtube videos, but we could use a little more thirst in the ladies around us instead of the cold hostility we get. Thirsty ladies are a good thing. It doesn't need mocking or compared to casual oldtimey racism, it's literally nature.

    FF was probably best because the studio gave them a million bucks to make the movie and then left them alone while all the other movies had to deal with notes from producers and executive producers.

    I swear I have a memory of my grandmother taking me to a local video rental store, possibly called Big Video, or something similar, some time in the late 90s, and seeing a VHS copy of this Fantastic Four movie on one of the shelves. I think it may have even had a ‘Not for Sale’ sticker on it. I remember strongly debating with myself over whether I wanted to rent it, or something else. I inevitably walked out of the store with something else, I think Hitchcock’s Vertigo, as I’d loved Rear Window, and was really curious to see another Jimmy Stewart led thriller. But, every time I went back to that video store, I always went looking for that FF VHS, and sadly, never saw it again. A couple years later, the place was bought out by Blockbuster. And not too long after that, and to this day, the storefront now houses a thrift store.

    Fantastic Four was great because the studio and corporate interests had no input or interest. They knew it was never going to see the light of day and they let an artist do their art.

    The back covers of comics published lately by DC feature an ad for Supergirl on Blu-Ray! Like it's a new release from the Warner Bros. archive. The artwork in the ad actually shows some ugly dragon-looking thing in the background (instead of the invisible monster that was Kara's REAL attacker). Why now? Why on earth now? Why remind anyone that this awful movie exists? Because Supergirl, I guess.

    It's the same universal media phenomenon of too many cooks.
    Supergirl with its big Hollywood team gets focus groups trying to write as many film genres into it as possible to try and grab the chick lit and capeshit audience simultaneously.
    Fantastic Corman has a checklist consisting of "Begin", "End" and "Accomplish Superhero Mission", with just enough people to fill in all the actually necessary superhero shit and work on pulling it off accordingly.

    The never-officially-released Fantastic Four movie made it on to British TV once in the early morning (Bout 08:00 or 09:00) when I was younger. Wasn't until like the internet era that I found out that it was an hash can copy. I have no idea how the studio ended up with the copy but at the time me and my brother were fairly blown away by it. I mean this was years before the other Fantastic Four movie came out and way before you'd really seen like Comic book movies in the mainstream, least to the extent we see them now. Think they ran it just before the Hulk movie where he meets up with Thor and John Ryes Davids Kingpin.
