Comic adaptations that are NOT capeshit

Yes, this thread is another attempt to move away from just talking about capeshit comics.

So, what are some great non-capeshit comic adaptations out there?

capeshit
Forced meme/10.

V for Vendetta and Watchmen were alright. Not as good as the comics, but still decent enough to warrant a watch after reading the original. Making Moore salty makes me happy.

The two Punisher films, plus Dirty Laundry, were pretty good action films. Kingsman is apparently a good film, though I've never watched it.
There's also the Men in Black films, which were based on a comic.

Blade and Big Hero 6 come to mind.

There's also some tv series, like Swamp Thing, Constantine and Preacher.

Can't think of much else off the top of my head.
If you think any of those fall under the "capeshit" meme, you're an idiot.

I dunno if the Crow counts as capeshit. I'm guessing otherwise.

trying to bait with jojo
a movie that's based on a comic that shows flaws in cape comics is a cape film
a animated movie is a cape film because it's a group of people who stop crime
Kill yourself.
Go shitpost on /tv/, you've already made those 8 1 word threads here today.

Red was a comic? Annie was a comic as well?

Loved that movie. Is the comic pretty much the same as the film. I would like to read it but I fear it would be the exact same so what difference would it make. Its the problem I have with the Batman Year one adaptation. Good movie but so accurate to the point it makes me wonder why watch it when I could read the comic.

The Crow comic was a lot grittier.
The violence was more visceral, the protagonist was more damaged, it was a very personal story for the author, who had lost his fiancee to a drunk driver.

user, I didn't mean that Big Hero 6 is capeshit because of the animated movie.
I mean it's capeshit because the original comic is capeshit.
The animated movie still makes them superheroes.
Superheroes = capeshit. I don't know why that's hard to believe.

The Crow is on my list after watching a 'What's The Difference' video on it. Embed related. Mostly the same, but the focus is mainly on the depression aspect, and rather than some fights being more intense, the Crow doesn't actually have trouble curb-stomping his enemies. Because he's just a vengeful, unbeatable spirit that needs to overcome his depression. That aspect interests me more than the movie.
I also like the art.

I used to call superhero fiction as childen's comic books. Turns out that kids don't actually read comic books anymore, and superheroes have somehow added extreme liberal moralizing and sexual fetishes into the usual bullshit involving men in spandex punching each other and calling each other silly names, so they shouldn't be reading it anyways. Capeshit.

The vid is pretty good user. Thanks I'll check out the comic.

Was the film deeper than it appeared. I remember watching some vid that explained it had some esoteric themes about cycles and history repeating itself. Liked the movie though.

The Red films also had the same writer as the comics. As for Annie, it's based off of a comic strip.

Yep. It's from way back in the 20s. It's actually interesting to hear her origin story:
Gray reported in 1952 that Annie's origin lay in a chance meeting he had with a ragamuffin while wandering the streets of Chicago looking for cartooning ideas. "I talked to this little kid and liked her right away," Gray said, "She had common sense, knew how to take care of herself. She had to. Her name was Annie. At the time some 40 strips were using boys as the main characters; only three were using girls. I chose Annie for mine, and made her an orphan, so she'd have no family, no tangling alliances, but freedom to go where she pleased."

You will never get a Batman movie with actors in heavy make-up to like Dick Sprang drawings

Also, Josie and the Pussycats. That movie was ahead of it's time.

Guy who wrote The Scribbler also wrote and directed film adaptation of it. It is nice visually, but other than that it is a kind of a wasted potential.

Fuck you both in your stretch-marked anuses. Hellboy and Liz getting together is cancer, and Abe and an elf is even worse, but Hellboy and Abe crying like bitches while Manilow plays is some sort of airborne AIDS/Cancer/Leprosy hybrid.
