I'd see it

I don't read Wizard or agree with them much, but I have to admit their casting choices for a hypothetical Young Avengers is fairly inspired.

Though I admit, I would have envisioned Eli slimmer, but then he IS super-soldiered and all, so I'm probably the one who's off. :-)

You know, I think a Young Avengers movie would be fairly awesome. The success of the Teen Titans show would indicate there's a market for young people seeing young heroes, after all. It's nice too, because, aside from Patriot, none of them really has any connection to the heroes they're emulating, so there's not really that much backstory to go through. It can be summed up as kids following in the footsteps of adult heroes, without the adult heroes even needing to appear onscreen or even be named. (Which might be a nice way to sidestep awkward licensing issues.)

Also the characters are cute and appealing. There's a nice amount of diversity too. And heck, the Hulkling/Wiccan relationship would give fanatics a reason to protest the movie and that always drums up good press. :-P

I would hope that they'd avoid the MGH plotline though. That was...not a good idea.

Hmm, it might not be big name enough to succeed in the theater, but maybe as a tv movie? It can't be worse than Generation X after all...

    Oh, Lord. I'd just managed to delete the Generation X movie from my brain after long last . . . and you had to go and remind me of it. RassumfrassumTVmovies!

    Much as I do love Young Avengers, I'd be more excited about a Runaways TV Movie or series, personally. They've got even fewer connections to the Marvel U than YA and easily "gettable" personalities and powers. Of course, I'm so out of touch with teen media that I've got no idea whom to cast as my favorite snarky teens.

    We shall take over the world... with Virtua Fighter!

    I'd love to see a Young Avengers movie, but the odds of the Hulkling/Wiccan relationship surviving the translation to the silver screen are slim. I mean, they won't even let Lyra beat up the Catholic Church in the Golden Compass movie, and thats the entire plot of the film.

    Sorry, venting. ^_^
