Sentry?

Is this a property worthy of the Big screen? By itself.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sentry_(Robert_Reynolds)

Will Sentry just get adsorbed into any Avengers movie franchise???

I am guessing The Sentry will be somehow absorbed with The Avengers...however I think a stand alone film would be pretty cool.

Re: Sentry?

Blonde more rugged looking Marvel version of Supes, speaking of Supes, Sentry always reminded me of Nuclear Man from Superman IV, think I may have said that before, or maybe deja vu? I dunno, carry on.

Re: Sentry?

I'm not a fan of the Sentry (as currently written), but the character certainly has some movie potential. I have my doubts about its incorporation into an Avengers movie, though.

Re: Sentry?

I think Sentry/Void could work as a villain for the Avengers movie more than a hero. I always thought his power set was ridiculous. Putting him on a team that would already have Thor is just too much. However I like the design of the character and the idea of him literally being his own worst enemy.

Though I think Marvel has handled his development herky jerky over the years.

I don't think they've done anything interesting with him post-intro arc.

Re: Sentry?

I'm indifferent on him as of now.
He has potential but if Marvel Studios ever made a solo movie it would have to have a unique approach to avoid being, and stuck with the idea, of being seen as Superman.

It's probably why we'll never see a Moon Knight movie either sadly, Batman comparisons.

I think a Moon Knight TV series or a Sentry TV series would help...even if they are short lived they would give both properties some kind of ground to work and build some sort of audience outside of comics.

Re: Sentry?

If they stay true to the comics i can see it having potential. There's plenty of potential there when you delve into how the world would react if a superhero re-emerged that they couldn't even remember, and how said superhero would react to his every deed being forgotten.
And then the wonder as the world begins to remember just what Sentry did for them coupled with the terror of the Void returning would certainly make for an interesting story in my book. I just hope if a Sentry movie is made we don't get Superman in yellow spandex.

I think the great thing is we can get a "Superman type" with out him being "SUPERMAN".

Re: Sentry?

Sentry only works as a supporting character turning into a villain. He's not interesting enough on his own. Kinda like the Hulk.

Me and my 400+ Hulk solo comics, solo television series on DVD, cartoons and movies would beg to differ.

Re: Sentry?

Granted they haven't found the magic formula to make the Hulk a cinematic hit yet, though I think that's mainly because the CGI Hulks just come across as too fake, even though the last movie's Hulk was improved.

But in comparison between Hulk and Sentry, Hulk's duality was better explored early on, also the act that made him into the Hulk in the comics made Banner heroic and tragic all at the same time, and made the Hulk a sympathetic character. With Sentry, didn't he just drink a potion, and recently in Siege they made his origin even more dubious. Plus Sentry's greatest enemy is himself, which is cool, but might be hard to really show well on the big or small screen. Banner fought against his Hulk side, but also had some good external enemies. Even Mr. McGee from the TV show was pretty damn dogged.

I just hate the way the Sentry was introduced. "Hai guyz! He's always been here, you just don't remember him." <shudder>

Yeah, that was a bit grating. Though, I admit it was an interesting twist.
