BB The Movie (!?!)

Black Beetle the Movie
No, as much as I wish it was an actual news, there is still no movie development attached to BB, not yet anyway ;)

Some time ago my good friend and pulp afecionado Simon Pimpernel (everyone should visit his wonderful pulp blog, if you are not doing it already) asked me who would I cast if a real movie about the Black Beetle was to be made. I replied a young Kirk Douglas would have been perfect for the role.
Well this morning Simon surprised me with this fanart photo manipulation, which looks like a real still from some '40s movie :)
I thanked him and asked permission to dress it up as movie poster and post it in here. Permission granted so here it is :)

Thanks again, Simon, it looks AWESOME.
Now if I can only time-travel and get young Kirk to sign for the movie...

Judging from the clips for his upcoming TV series based on the "Human Target" comic, I'd consider Mark Valley for the role.

I agree, but the jury is still out on Human Target (even with the hot Cylon onboard for the pilot).

You know, the more I think about it the more I can see him as BB. The only "maybe" is that maybe he has more a Cap America kinda body than BB (which I want to be more average in body type).
BTW looking forward to Human Target as well: I hope it's a good show :)
