6. Silver Surfer

Given the relatively poor reaction to the galactic adventurer aspect of Green Lantern does that mean that Hollywood would be less likely to make comic book superhero movies that are not set primarily on earth? While in some cases that is likely true with a character as iconic as the Silver Surfer methinks an exception could be made.

My pitch: Think Waking Life meets Iron Man meets 2001: A Space Odyssey except with mind-blowing special effects. Instant cult film.

Give me a superhero movie with a brain in its head and some great visuals. Is that too much to ask for?
