Marvin Martian movie

12.21.2009

I’ve been so focused on movies based off of board games and children’s toys lately, I’ve forgotten that there’s an entire stable of obscure cartoon characters left who obviously each need their own feature film. And that’s why director Alex Zamm has just been put in charge of a MARVIN THE MARTIAN movie.

The last time we saw Marvin onscreen, he was zapping other aliens in SPACE JAM, but this time, he’s got something else up his sleeve. In the new film he travels to Earth to try and destroy Christmas (okaay?), but then is tripped up when he accidentally gets stuck inside a gift box. Hilarity!

Also, it should be noted that the film is being filmed in live-action, with only Marvin himself being CGI, ALVIN AND THE CHIMPMUNKS style, and Mike Myers is being approached for the voice. I wonder if they’ll change the character design and make him more expressive than a giant pair of eyes?

Extra Tidbit: Marvin the Martian was Bugs Bunny’s only nemesis that could consistently f*ck him up.

I love that character. But his own movie. I smell danger. Very dark times lie ahead Harryy Potter. We must all decide on what is right and what is profitable.

Marvin movie - good

Mike Myers - potentially hazardous
Giving him extra features - No. The eyes are so expressive, he needs nothing else. Thats why the character is so iconic. I don't need to see his mouth.

HMMMM? This sounds interesting, though I don't know about it being a Christmas story. Mike Myers is an interesting choice, as long as they don't change how his voice sounds! Having only Marvin in cgi could be really cool too.

Dear God,
If you do exist, I pray to you, that you will end this reign of terror and smite those whom decided injustice to movie-goers everywhere was ok.

EARTHLINGS BEWARE!

I've always loved Marvin The Martian he's my favorite Loony Toon, I always thought he was bad ass, maybe becuase he was the only alien character in the show, the idea of mixing live action with cgi sounds pretty cool to me but the destroying christmas plot has got to go, how many times does chritmas need to be sabotage'd?? the Grinch did it and so did Jack Skellington, I say they give him a new reason to come to earth and maybe it won't seem like a rip-off of something else. They should also

They should also have his martian dog.

Nice

Marvin is my favorite Looney Tunes character. Not sold on Mike Myers doing he voice though. Why screw with something that works?

Yes!

Come on now haters. If we can get a movie about super intelligent gerbals or hamsters, or whatever the hell they were, then surely we can get a movie about Marvin the Martian.

Yes, this Marvin movie will be better than G-Force, but nobody fucking asked for nor wanted that crap, just like nobody wants this. The sad part is, there's a great movie with Marvin The Martian lying somewhere around, but not in live-action and not with him trying to destroy Christmas, lame!

i see no logical reason for this movie to be made. however, the potential to make profit (in the case of this movie - a very small amount of said profit) outweighs the desire to make a quality product and/or logic.

If we're going off logic, Vulcan, than isn't profit the most logical reason of all to make a movie? Every single movie made by Hollywood (and 99% of the Indie flicks) are made, judging how much of a profit can be attained after release. Most logical.

I like Marvin the Martian as much as the next guy but does he really need his own feature film? Just how popular is he?!
