Many of the biggest franchises in Hollywood right now are based on comic books, so it’s no surprise that studios and TV networks are increasingly looking to the comics industry to provide them with the next big thing. But not every comic book adaptation deals with capes and tights, and sometimes it’s not always obvious that a film is pulling from the comic book world in the first place.
To celebrate the release of Kingsman: The Golden Circle — which originated as a comic series! — here are 19 other movies and TV shows that you might not realize were based on comics.
Kingsmnan: The Golden Circle is directed by Matthew Vaughn and stars Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Julianne Moore, Channing Tatum, Pedro Pascal and Halle Berry. Check out our review of the film to find out why we said it’s “cheeky, cartoonish, and crazy as its predecessor, but it’s also commendably unafraid to demolish what had come before it if it’s in service of the story.”
