Default Let Wacker bring back Condorman

Oh yeah! I hope this happens!
From Newsarama:
What will the first Disney/Marvel comics project be? Stephen Wacker has a suggestion.

Wacker ends his plea with a call to action, asking that “letters of support” be sent to “LET WACKER BRING BACK CONDORMAN c/o Spider-Man Office” at Marvel’s address, 417 5th Avenue, New York, New York, 10016.

my imagination ran wild!


i saw the movie probably 20 years later. it didn't hold a torch to my imagination... it was kinda hokey, but fun. but still there was this great story, or the memory of, from my childhood.


so in my eye, condorman's kinda cool, or at the very least - he's got potential. i'm a firm believer than any character no matter how lame can be made awesome, and be used to tell an exciting story.


so this is my quick rethinking of condorman for the new millenia. i mean condorman was a disney flick, and disney owns marvel, there are possibilities here!


my take; a mashup of james bond and gatchaman. condorman is like batman if he worked for the cia or fbi or whatever - take it and run with it i say!


okay, i'm tired, and it's late on a friday night. the piece isn't done - i left out the skyline on the top and the dash of colour i wanted to add... monday i'll tackle that. but for now, i thought i'd share....

From Moviehole:
Exclusive : Disney considering resurrecting Condorman

“Condorman”, the story of a cartoonist that transforms into the superhero he draws (of course you remember it!), is the latest being tinkered with over there in the Burbank redo department.

The 1981 Charles Jarrott film starred Brit stage star Michael Crawford (at the height of his ‘Betty!’ success), Oliver Reed, and James ‘Teen Wolf’ Hampton.

“The idea remains the same”, a House of Mouse insider – albeit one that works in a producing capacity for animation, so hasn’t got a direct line to anyone on this particular production and has admittedly heard this all third hand – told me over Skype this morning. “Wally. A Brit again. Robert Pattinson’s name has been floated, can you see him going for it? He seems to be into more intellectual things?. Still a pompous cartoonist turned superhero type gets to assist in the deflection of a sexy young KGB agent. Emphasis would be more on action this time around though. They want to steer as far off from Johnny English territory as possible. But there’s talk of doing lots with the Condorman brand. Guessing you’ll hear more about it soon Clint”

One of the big supporters behind the resurrection of Condorman is Stephen Wackler, an editor on ”Amazing Spider-Man”.

He, and quite a few others, believe that with Disney now doing Marvel’s movies, they should consider making the character part of the Marvel Universe. Either way, “it would all begin with a solo movie – the obligatory origins movie.”

The original “Condorman” wasn’t a big success, and didn’t gain much love among critics, but in recent years its taken on somewhat of a cult classic status, which has apparently helped stem the movement to get the reboot on the fast track.

Whatever they do, just please bring back the classic Henry Mancini score please!

Small Fry: Exclusive Look at the Toy Story Short

Said MacLane, "For Condorman, I just wanted to find a way to get Condorman back into the public consciousness… It was kind of like, 'Can we do this?' And they were like, 'Yeah, we can do that.'"

Plus then if they make toys of Condorman, it would make it a win-win. "

Wacker:
I think it goes without saying that I take full credit for the Condorman reboot.

I’m looking forward to it and I await a call from Disney about what role I will play.
(One note for my director: I refuse to learn lines or show up before 6 PM.)
