With Swampy on the way and lookin’ mighty fine, I’d love to hear what other characters you think deserve the latex, silicon, airbrush, cast and mold treatment!
My top 3 picks are:
*Etrigan the Demon
What are yours? Or who has been created practically that you just LOVE?
Nice choices, @Applejack. Martian Manhunter would be awesome.
-Man-Bat (the Stan Winston project that never was, sadly)
Oooh, a Demon Knights show would be so cool!
Commissioner Gordon. It would be a terrible idea to make him CGI.
-Metallo (w/o skin)
-live action Green Lantern uniforms
-silver body Brainiac
Martian Manhunter would be so great! I’d love to see him in a limited series on here
Green Lantern’s constructs. I just don’t understand why nobody’s tried to make a Green Lantern movie using real power rings.
[Serious answer: Practical Man-Bat would be awesome. The Wolf-Man (1941) is my favorite horror movie so something like the makeup from that (which surprisingly still holds up, aside from the transformation sequences) would be really cool.]
Love the idea of practical Man-Bat & Clayface. Clayface could even have a stop-motion kind of look. Keep Batman rogues practical!
Wolf Man 1941 was a great movie which seemed to involve realistic people. Lon.Chaney was a good actor in yhose days just having done Of Mice and Men.
Certainly now almost 80 years later this type of effect has a valid place though it is hard on the actors
I would like a live action Spectre maybe with minimal CGI where he cant see all that the criminal can until the final effect turned into a human candle make kf wood etc.
You know what would be really really cool? Jim Henson’s Omega Men.
Curious @DeadmanBrand, would a practical Deadman be necessary, or would it mostly be an airbrush job? I feel like Deadman has really distinctive features, but maybe a Doug Jones could make that work without prosthetics.
Oh my gosh @HCQ I would LOVE to see a Henson Company Omega Men!!
@TurokSonofStone1950, I could see some really cool ambient stuff happening with Spectre. One of the things I love about Alex Ross is how he makes these otherworldly characters feel real- his Spectre is fantastic.
A practical Man-Bat would be TERRIFYING!! I’m also digging the thought of a living, dripping, Clayface.
I’m having a hard time disassociating Hellboy from Trigon in my mind, or Legend for that matter. We need a new addition to the gallery of red demons
Also getting the creeps thinking of skinless Metallo, and the Un-Men!
King Shark makes me recall a great episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer that had a really funny “mob boss” shark head character.
