10 Movies You Didn’t Know Were Based On Comic Books
Did you know that this year’s blockbuster film Kingsman: The Secret Service was based on a comic book? If not, you’re not alone. Most moviegoers assumed that Kingsman was a James Bond knock off for a younger audience. But it was, in actual fact, based on a comic book published by Icon Comics. This is a growing trend as an increasing number of movies and television shows are based on comic books. From films such as Kick Ass to TV programs such as The Walking Dead, it is becoming harder to tell exactly what content is coming from the world of comics. Here are 10 movies you (probably) didn’t know were based on comic books.
10. The Mask (1994)
The 1994 movie The Mask was more than a vehicle to showcase the rubber face of funny man Jim Carrey. The Mask was actually a cult comic book from publisher Dark Horse Comics, and the movie was an attempt to bring the visual style and flair of the comic book to life on the big screen. However, the comic book was much darker in tone and content. Producers of the movie decided to use Jim Carrey’s natural talents to make the film version more of a comedy. The results speak for themselves as The Mask succeeded in launching Jim Carrey into superstar status and also introduced the world to a young actress named Cameron Diaz.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZpaxavz90I Via YouTube
