Meine zehn liebsten Comicverfilmungen

13. April 2015 at 12:26




Heute also meine zehn liebsten Comicverfilmungen. Ein schwieriges Genre, kann man sich doch mit der Adaption eines von seinen Fans sehr verehrten Comicbuches schwer verheben. Es ist immer eine Gratwanderung, nicht zu nah an der Vorlage zu bleiben, um etwas eigenständiges zu erschaffen, man darf sich aber auch nicht zu weit davon entfernen, sonst verprellt man die Fanbasis. Im Grunde ähnlich wie bei Buchverfilmungen, nur können die Anhänger eines Comics die deutlich schwierigere Zielgruppe sein… 😀 Erstmalig verirrt sich dieses Mal auch eine Fernsehserie in diesen Blog!
