I mentioned a few days ago that I bought the novelization of Howard the Duck. Well, this made me curious, so I began looking up movie novelizations of superhero movies. Here’s some superhero movies that got novelizations.
- Superman IV
- Batman & Robin
- Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer
- The Punisher
- RoboCop & RoboCop 2- (superhero status is debatable, I know)
- Pretty much every recent superhero movie.
Most are authors I’m unfamiliar with, but a notable exception is the novelization of X-Men – The Last Stand, which was written by Christ Claremont.
Even Catwoman- which is quite possibly the worst movie I have ever seen – had a novelization. It makes me curious, since I’m a much more avid reader than movie goer. I managed to pick up a couple of other superhero novelizations when I purchases Howard the Duck, so I may just give the others a chance. What’s the worse that could happen?
(Cue ominous thunder.)
