Smaller Budget Movies With Lesser Known Characters Coming From Marvel?!?

Smaller Budget Movies With Lesser Known Characters Coming From Marvel?!?

Jay Cochran - April 22, 2010 is reporting that Marvel Entertainment is looking to do a number of smaller-budget movies with lesser-known characters after it gets through with it's current string of big-budget Avengers related movies.

According to the report, the folks at Marvel are wanting to take characters only known to hardcore comic book readers like Dr. Strange, Ka-Zar, Luke Cage, Dazzler and Power Pack, and make good movies only spending something like $25 million as opposed to the big $100 million like budgets we see used with movies like Iron Man.

This is a method we have seen used more and more, most recently with such movies like Kick-Ass which opened last weekend and The Losers which hits theaters this weekend. Kick-Ass only made a little over $19 million for its opening weekend, though many speculated that the low turn out was due to the extreme violence depicted throughout it. It will be interesting to see how The Losers does this weekend. Iron Man 2 which is Marvel's next movie to hit theaters early next month will quit possibly will be the highest grossing movie for 2010, but by no means was it made with a small budget, so I am not sure how realistic it will be to do low-budget movies with characters most people have never heard of, but I guess time will tell.

What do you think, do you want to see more low-budget movies with lesser known characters or would you rather see the more big-budget ones with well known characters?
