Another Marvel Flick: Sub-Mariner

September 14, 2006

Sub-MarinerReports from SlashFilm and yesterday announced that Universal, the studio with the rights to the film adaptation of Marvel's Sub-Mariner, has finally hired a director for the movie. Terminator 3 and U-571 director Jonathan Mostow has been hired on to rewrite and direct the comic book movie. IMDb states that Mostow currently has a number of other major features he's signed on for, including Terminator 4 (recently announced by MGM) and a Swiss Family Robinson movie, but it was confirmed that he will be clearing his schedule to make Sub-Mariner his next movie.

Sub-Mariner is a comic originally from 1939 about a young man named Namor who discovers he is a descendant from the lost kingdom of Atlantis and is a key person involved in a war being waged between the underwater world and our own. Although it is another comic book adaptation (from Marvel too), it looks like it could hold out as a great film. Some may complain that Marvel is pushing out too many of these comic book movies, but between Iron Man, Ant-Man, and now Sub-Mariner, they all sound like fairly great choices being developed by fantastic filmmakers. And the key point is that they're original movies and not sequels (yet, at least).

I think the "Rock" would make a good Sub-Mariner.

The Rock Duane Johnson is the only person I would even think twice to play Prince Namor... He's big enough all he needs is a tweak with the eyebrows and pointed ears and he's good to go
