The Daredevil movie, or the Constantine movie?
I have both of them, with Ben Affleck (DD), and Keanu Reeves (Constantine).
...Let's say that I got tons of hero-based movies, cartoons, and comics. sweatdrop
While some people are like "I can't stand watching this one, I hate it, but I love this one better," I prefer to watch every version created.
Say that there's one that only shows a hero being a hero, and there's another showing him being a person, and then there's another showing him as a dirtball, and there's another showing him as a clean person.
They may all be different with actors, cheesy lines, great action, overused CGI and whatnot, but it's like watching the same person, only in a different light that couldn't be seen in the other versions.
It's not like they completely started from scratch when making a character over again, they had to pick something about the hero when making the movies and shows.
(And I've seen some pretty awful cringe-worthy hero movies, but I still survived. I think. *pokes myself*)
Keanu Reeve's version of Constantine was interesting because it was Keanu Reeves, and that it showed his weapons and his abilities, although he was totally Matrix-y about it.
He was able to show that Constantine was a heavy smoker and a drinker as well, while the series itself had to be toned down for television purposes.
Matt Ryan's version, the series, was also interesting because it had a guy who actually transformed himself to look like the real character, and it's showing his abilities besides weapons, and he's like a regular guy.
While he had to tone down the drinking, smoking, and character sexuality for the show to remain on the television, he gave the character the rough and cynical personality.
Season one barely made it - it didn't start out very well, by midway it was still somewhat at 50/50, and by the end, it barely crawled past the 50/50 point.
Seems to be that a lot of people don't watch it because of the religion-bashing tones, the smoking and drinking, and how everything is when compared to other Marvel heroes' movies. (Thor.) *cough*
I liked Constantine because it's one of the darker heroes, such as Spawn, The Crow, Daredevil, Watchmen, Punisher - those kind of characters.
I know I keep bashing on Thor for this one, but if all movies were like that, wouldn't there be a 'beautiful' super-strong main hero, who has a 'sexy' yet devious villain, and they must battle or live in some kind of pristine environment for every single hero out there?
I like characters who can get their hands a little dirty, too.
*teams up with Loki and tosses mud at Thor* emotion_awesome
But you're right, I hope season two gets renewed!
It ended on such a cliffhanger! gonk
...I have not yet checked that out, is there a list somewhere?
I know, the movie itself didn't give him much of a personal 'understand my life' setting - just a nearly perfect hero.
I do love all of the movies and shows for what they are though, but I know what you mean by its graphic content.
Sometimes it's shocking, and so realistic, but I love realistic vibes so much more.
It does good to prove the point "The Man Without Fear" in its intensity.
Can't wait to see if he's ever linked up with anyone else from Marvel.
Also can't wait to see if Constantine is going to make it to see season two.
I bet they could do an awesome, though unusual, pair-up.
Snarky religion-practicing cynic, and dogmatic law-enforcing vigilante. emotion_kirakira
*tosses in Spidey to the mix*
My profile doesn't lie, I'm a fan since the preview for it last year, been waiting for it so long.
Just got done with episode three, and it's still so great.
I love the darker feel to it, not all rainbow and glittery like Thor, more along the lines of Constantine.
How are you doing?
Glad you love heroes just like I do, you awesome person. emotion_awesome
