How about stop making Hulk films that fail and instead give us a decent live action Wonder Woman, movie? Seriously. (For casting, I must go with Bridget Regan. For which much of the internet agrees)

And since all the Avengers are currently getting their own films, I would have loved to see Carol Danvers/Ms Marvel get one. (But call her Warbird instead, like she was for a little while. 'Ms Marvel' just isn't going to sell to anyone.) Her backstory is the classic movie-ready stuff - air force pilot gets caught in alien explosion and gets superpowers (wiki: superhuman strength and durability, can fly at roughly half the speed of sound, discharge explosive blasts of radiant energy which she fires from her fingertips, absorb other forms of energy (such as electricity) to further magnify her strength, can withstand the pressure from a 92-ton weight, and strike with a similar level of force, absorb magical energy without consequence.) Even before/without her powers she was an exceptional espionage agent, pilot, hand-to-hand combatant and markswoman. She's already well-established friends with Iron Man thus there's a nice in there, and she's been the leader of the Avengers before.

Come on. She's got as much to work with here as any of the male heroes who keep getting these frakking movies. Casting wise, I think Katee Sackhoff would own it.

Shorter answer to this whole question: Characters I'd like to see on the big screen? Polaris; Psylocke; a PROPER Deadpool, possibly with appearances by Cable and Domino; She-Hulk (because she's far more hilarious than Hulk anyway); Scarlet Witch (with Quicksilver!)

Bet you didn't think I could make a post that wasn't 'ARGH EARTHQUAKES!!' even more boring to you than they were ;)
