    "Man of Steel 2" has already been made.... in the form of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

    In that case take a look at the show 'Black Sails' from Starz. Season 1 starts off a bit heavy on the sex side, but the story got VERY got as the show moved on.

    Pretty sure a new Superman movie is currently being talked about as well.

    You're right... but if it happens, it would be a "sequel" to Justice League, not Man of Steel.

    I've heard Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World described as "just like Star Trek, but on the ocean!" :eek: :rofl:

    There was talk a while back of Syfy doing a 3001 miniseries, and I think it was mentioned fairly recently so it might still be happening.

    Another good one. I watched it a while back when they added it to Netflix and really enjoyed it. I definitely would have been up for more.

    I would rather see 3001 get a grand, big-budget "prestige" cinema treatment, than be relegated to another cheap-o SyFy miniseries.

    I doubt it would be "cheap-o", they seem to have given their last couple miniseries Ascension, and Childhood's End pretty decent budgets. The fantasy ones they did like Tin Man, Alice, and Neverland also seemed to have pretty big budgets.
    I'm pretty sure they'd be willing to fork out the big bucks for something as noteworthy as 3001.

    Fantastic Four 2015

    In part because of the friendship between Aubrey and Maturin mirroring the similar friendship with Kirk and McCoy.

    Honestly, I'm glad it hasn't happened. 3001 was my least favourite of the stories that hinged mostly on retreads and nostalgic nods.

    The Rocketeer, criminally underrated and one of my favorite movies of all time.. There was some scuttlebutt a few months back about a sequel with Cliff missing and a new girl taking up the mantle. No news since then on the move but there is a Disney Junior animated series in the works, with a girl as the Rocketeer. Something tells me that's what the movie idea morphed into.

    This thread got me thinking. I'd love to see another sequel in the Herbie series. Yes, that one. The last one with Lindsay Lohan was a bit of a misfire, and very likely sunk any further ideas, but I've always loved those movies and I'd like to see them return to it at some point.

    A sequel to the Cushing ones? Why?

    If any Doctor Who movie sequel should be done, let it be a sequel to the Paul McGann movie (but ditch the American aspects and the "my mother was human" crap; they're what ruined it). He absolutely nailed the part both in 1996 and in 2013 in the "Night of the Doctor" webisode. There's no reason he couldn't be terrific again.

    That would be fun, but would today's audience be satisfied with a robot that doesn't want to take over the world and kill everyone? There's a childlike innocence to Johnny 5 and Fisher Stevens' character that seems out of place nowadays.

    I felt Chappie was pretty much a spiritual successor to the Short Circuit movies anyway.

    Tron Legacy.

    I loved the original Tron and I loved the sequel. I really wanted to see where it went, especially after the teaser stuff on the Blu-Ray release implying that Dillinger from the original and his son from a brief scene in the sequel were working together and the MCP might be involved. Plus Tron would've been back.

    I was thinking more about sequels that should have been made at the time. A third Cushing movie, Dr Who and the Cybermen, released in the sixties.

    Short Circuit 3, early nineties, no idea what that plot might have been, but I’d have been in the queue to see it at the local Canon cinema.

    For McGann, he should have got seven or eight series, but it may well have turned out like Charmed. When my lottery numbers do come up though, I’m making a McGann movie just for me. Must remember to buy lottery ticket sometime.
