Do you know how many Superhero movies are out there? Me neither! Too many to count, but I'm sure we're all glad that our favorite nostalgic heroes and villains from the comics are getting the big screen treatment.
In the midst of all these superhero movies we kind of have a "civil war" going on between DC and Marvel on who will not only make the big bucks in the blockbuster, but how well the characters will be portrayed in theatres.
My question is, why can't we all get along?
Why can't we just work together and be one? Wait... DC and Marvel comics did do that once upon time. They published a number of Amalgam Comics where they meshed up DC characters with Marvel characters. One of their most popular comics was The Legend of Dark Claw. Which was a mixture of DC's Batman and Marvel's Wolverine. His name was even Logan Wayne!
So this got me thinking. If DC and Marvel ever combined forces to make a movie together, they should make a Dark Claw movie!
I already have two celebrities who could pull off the hero and the villain! Tom Hardy as Dark Claw and Willem Dafoe as Hyena!
This casting would make perfect sense because there have been talks of replacing Hugh Jackman's Wolverine and Jackman suggested that Tom Hardy would be a good choice for the role.
We all know Hugh Jackman is a great Wolverine. I mean he is one of the few actors who has stayed the same character in the X-Men Franchise. It would be kind of hard to picture another actor to be in his place.
Now Dark Claw would be a different story. Tom Hardy has already worked on the DC side playing Batman's villain Bane. Meaning he would be able to bring a little bit of Batman in the screen. I mean after all, he was born in the darkness, "molded by it", I could go on...
After seeing Hardy in Mad Max, I could see a little bit of Wolverine in him. He did pull off the raspy voice with the occasional grunts.
Willem Dafoe would be perfect for Hyena! He has already played Marvel's Villain The Green Goblin and he did a great job bringing that character to life! So why not take another villainous role like Hyena?
I mean Dafoe shockingly looks just like The Joker!
What do you think? Would this be a perfect movie to introduce the Amalgam Comics?
