"Nemesis" Latest Comic to Hit Big Screen - and It's Going to Suck

Bleeding Cool's Rich Johnstonreported last Friday that 20th Century Fox has bought screen rights to Nemesis, a Mark Millar/Steven McNiven graphic novel that Tony Scott may...okay, probably will wind up directing with Scott Free producing. Because the world simply can't wait for another property about another costumed vigilante a la Tony Stark (i.e., eccentric billionaire), and another plot about this guy's parents having been killed and the vigilante bent on revenge, etc.

Am I hallucinating? Is this a dream? I don't how how to say this differently so I'm just going to repeat that I really can't stand this any longer. I thought I made it clear during ComicCon but I guess some people were busy or offline and didn't get the word: no more big-studio comic-book movies of any kind...ever!

Kill all comic-book movies and hunt down the whiskered, T-shirted geeks in flip-flops who are dying to see them.

And no, I don't care about the twist, which Millar (Kick Ass, Wanted) has explained as follows: "What if Batman was a total c***?" That's interesting for about four or five seconds. After that it's a non-starter because a ne'er-do-well vigilante in faux-superhero guise is the same formula crap flipped over on its back. Stories and movies like this are oppressive, poisonous, polluting our souls. Stop making them, stop making them, stop making them, stop making them.
