    A prequel is a better idea. If they just concentrated on Night Owl/Rorschach fighting crime it could be ok.

    Just saying Orph...if it has to be done. At least they are going prequel and not undoing the gutpunch of the ending of the original.

    With the right creative team, it's not impossible for the book to be good.

    But they did just recently re-integrate some of the old Charlton characters that the Watchmen characters were based on during Infinite Crisis. I guess using them is not quite as profitable, though.

    Ghost Rider's Blackout Won't Follow Marvel Mythology - ShockTillYouDrop.com

    Though Columbia Pictures' Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance will feature a comic book-inspired villain in Johnny Whitworth's Blackout, MTV has learned that the connection to the original source material is primarily the look of the character and not the Marvel Universe backstory.

    "We didn't really honestly do a lot of research into the comic book version of Blackout," says co-director Brian Taylor. "We kind of just took the visual of him and went from there."

    Introduced into the Marvel Universe in the early '90s, Blackout was a thug for hire who, after being scorched by Ghost Rider's hellfire, gained demonic powers and sought vengeance against the antihero (at that time Daniel Ketch, brother to Johnny Blaze).

    In the film version, Blackout will, like Ghost Rider, be a creation of the devil (Ciaran Hinds) and his powers will effectively cancel one out Ghost Rider's.

    Syfy Films Acquires George R.R. Martin

    Coming off the wild success of HBO’s series adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s epic fantasy book series Game of Thrones, another of the author’s works is getting the Hollywood treatment. Heat Vision reports that Syfy Films (a joint venture between Syfy and Universal) has acquired the screen rights to the superhero anthology Wild Cards. Martin co-created, co-wrote, and edited the anthology which centers on an alien virus being unleashed over New York City, turning its inhabitants into two classes of mutant: deformed creatures called Jokers or special power-enhanced beings called Aces. Melinda Snodgrass, a co-creator and co-writer of the series, is set to write the screenplay.

    The first book in the series was published in 1987, and the series has seen a slew of writers contribute over the years including Doctor Who’s Paul Cornell and Carrie Vaughn. No plot details are known at the moment, but Martin revealed that the character of The Sleeper would definitely appear and the film will be set in contemporary times. This certainly sounds like an ambitious undertaking, and it’ll be interesting to see how the first film in the potential franchise will look like in terms of scope and tone.
    Ugh...I love these books. LOVE. Tachyon and company rule. But SyFy being involved in this just SCREAMS craptastic.

    Well, usually yes, but lately I've really enjoyed the newer ongoing series from Skiffy (sorry I refuse to call them SyFy). Though I think it's a little too little and a lot too late for Wild Cards - when was the last "NEW" material they did, and basically I always felt the series was a retread of the old Thieves World paradigm. Plus aren't super-heroes played out on TV? I'd be willing to bet that they delay the actual production of the show until ALPHAS is finished with it's run, however long that might be, because the shows are virtually identical in basic plot.

    George R.R. Martin's superhero opus is heading to the big screen | Blastr

    Well, this article actually claims feature film, which is actually better news. And this...

    Which of the dozens of Wild Cards stories will form the spine of the feature film remains to be seen. When Heroes premiered—and, to a certain extent, when shows like Syfy's own Alphas followed—lots of fans felt it owed more than a little to the ideas first set forth in Wild Cards.

    Let's see what happens when Hollywood goes straight to the source.
    addresses your point about whether the time has passed or not. It's a shame that anthology films do not work as tentpole flicks because this series is PRIMED for that sort of thing. And the Thieves World books are also awesome. I swear, now I have to unpack my boxes of books just to get back into my Wild Cards books for the third time.
