Has anyone heard rumors regarding a possible full length feature film for SPN? I find this a fitting topic with Entourage being released last week into theaters,,SPN with a serious budget? Ohhh boy..
Clevvermovies on Youtube listed SPN as #3 on their list of TV shows most wanted to be made into a movie. Personally, I think this would be an amazing way to end Supernatural, even if we get an end to the series next year. So, for the sake of discussion:
Would you want Supernatural to be made into a movie?
Should it be a standalone, or continuation?
Pitch your perfect SPN movie
I am going to put a lot of thought into this over the hellatus. At this moment, i would prefer a continuation of the series, however I know it has to be able to standalone for the sake of casual fans, So there are a couple of options. There are ways to recap the important events of the story at the very beginning, although I don't think I would be crazy about that route. I would love to see the FIRST scece "That night 30 (and some) years ago" be the beginning of the actual film just to play on our nostalgia, while also establishing the family-centric theme. I would still introduce the characters, possibly mid hunt, right after that. Once that is out of the way we could have other scenes that establish Crowley on his own as King of Hell, Castial as an angel...nothing that would be out of place, but enough to once again, give casual fans at least an idea of who these people are..
Story arc is what I really am interested in figuring out. It isn't going to come to me in one night, not anything of quality anyhow. I just believe there is so much potential with a bigger budget to put out a really great movie, and (if dreams came true) an amazing send off of an amazing television show. Get Kripke back. Have Chuck there at some point, even in a Deus Ex Machina role IDC....
You could pick up two years after the series finale (presuming the Winchesters haven't died.) A movie with just those two on some mini season big budget adventure would be fine, but I would prefer a premise where some other-worldly events have shaken reality to its core. The brothers are facing foes from the past (some sort of cosmic balancing taking place as the price paid for the brothers causing chaos of natural order all these years), I would love to see Azazel back. It would be a perfect way to bring the story full circle, maybe even the brothers sacrificing their very existence in the end (with help from God/Chuck) like they wanted in The Song Remains the Same...and even though they choose to give up existing to save the world, set the natural order back on track, save their parents, it would be awesome to get the "That night.." scene AGAIN at the end, except tweaked to where when Mary gets up to check on Sam, all is fine. Through some ripple effect, they get to lead normal lives as a happy family.....OR, we can always go with a post apocalyptic world, where the brothers didn't defeat a big bad, and watch them try to cope with this and do everything they can to take the world back ala "The End." Do an ending where they beat the hell out of everything, turn and see a whole new army of Big Bads, have a "bitch..jerk" moment as they stare at each other knowing this is it, and charge into the last fight with a cut to black as Carry On My Wayward Son starts playing and the credits roll.....All my ideas may sound terrible but this is me spouting things off the top of my head in 15 minutes..I think SPN ending with a movie would be the perfect way to go (even though i prefer tv series over movies any day)
Regardless of what you think of my ideas, let me know what you guys think about the questions posed above. Add questions of your own too!
