With so many superhero movies today, it's almost hard to remember the days when there were only a handful of hero movies being made.

In the 80s and 90s I'd read comics and dream of seeing my favorite heroes on the big screen. Though with the way some of them ended up in those days (Punisher, Captain America)sometimes I hoped they'd never get around to it.

What movies do you remember fantasizing about? What actors were playing the parts?

Spider-Man. In the 80's, I was all about Spidey. It probably wouldn't have turned out too well, but who cares? Back then, Spidey on the big screen would've been a victory.

This post has made me want to rewatch the Green Goblin's Last Stand fan film from 1992. I remember finding it good for what it was, and pretty faithful to ASM 121-122.

When I was a kid, I always wanted an FF movie.

If only I'd known!

I would have wished for something else. \:\)

Always wanted a Ghost Rider movie back then, but I knew the FX tech of the era wouldn't be quite up to the task.

Also wanted a Hulk movie, but again the FX wouldn't be up to the task. A body builder in green paint on the big screen would be laughable.

Also Xmen should have had Ahnold as Colossus

I never seriously imagined a comic book movie until Star Wars changed everything. Suddenly it seemed the sky was the limit.

What I wanted back then was to see my Bronze Age heroes given life on the silver screen. Conan, Hero for Hire, Killraven, Master of Kung-Fu, and the Black Panther were my top picks. I got my wish with Conan, of course, but unfortunately I didn't like Arnold's rendition of the character.

I thought you meant movies that were planned but never got produced. Like James Cameron's Spider-Man. It was in production from Cannon Films. They got as far as building a bunch of the sets when they lost the license to the character. They recycled those sets, along with unused sets from the unproduced "Masters of the Universe II" into what became the Jean-Claude Van Damme vehicle "Cyborg." I've even seen "Cyborg" listed in the TV Guide as "Masters of the Universe II." Supposedly when they were going to make "Spider-Man" they were going to have Michael Biehn star as Peter Parker. I like Cameron and Biehn but I don't see him as Peter Parker.

I never heard about that.

Sounds like the Nick Cage Superman. I kind of wish that had gotten made, but at the same time I dont think it would have been very good.

Oh yeah, Burton's Superman. Didn't they also sign Tim Allen as Brainiac and Hulk Hogan as Doomsday? And when they finally released some production art they had turned Superman into something like a Borg? I was pretty happy it never got made.

I can see Nick Cage as some sort of dark caricature of Superman like, say, the Sentry, but not as the real thing.
