Goal in life

It's important to have a goal in life. For some, it is to be the best in their chosen career. For others, it is to find true love, and/or be a good father/mother. Some set their sights even higher, striving to win a Nobel Prize, or find a cure for cancer. While I certainly wouldn't object to attaining any of those, I have chosen something a bit more reasonable in its likelihood of success. I think I mentioned this once before on my blog, but decided to formalize it here (yes, such an exciting post, no?). For me, my goal in life is to see every single comic book movie ever made. A lofty and admirable dream, I know. Now, as with all well-thought-out plans, certain rules have been established . . . and here they are:
  1. It must either be a live-action film or (if animated) a theatrical release. I'd have a better shot at winning the Nobel Peace Prize than trying to keep up with all the cartoon direct-to-video & made-for-TV releases.
  2. The movie must be based on a specific comic book or graphic novel. Superhero movies with completely original characters (ala The Incredibles) do not qualify.
  3. Qualifying movies are not limitted to superhero themes. If the movie is based on a comic book or graphic novel of any kind, it's on the list.
  4. Movie sequels only qualify if the original movie qualified. So, if a movie comes out, spawns a comic book, and a later movie sequel is made, the sequel is considered based on the original movie, not the comic book.
So, there are the rules. And now that you know the rules, I'm asking for your assistance. If you are aware of a movie meeting the criteria which is not on the below list, please let me know.
