Vad är en Flash Gordon, frågar någon? Time sammanfattar fint:
"In the original story, Flash was a polo player who was kidnapped by a mad scientist and taken to the planet Mongo, which was ruled by Ming the Merciless. Though he was first created as a comic strip in 1934 by Alex Raymond, Flash has had many lives over the past century, appearing in many spin-off comics and television series. Most notably was the campy 1980 movie adaptation starring Timothy Dalton, Max von Sydow, Chaim Topol and Sam Jones and a soundtrack by Queen."
80-talsfilmen är helt fantastisk, en riktigt kultklassiker. Och nu ska den rebootas?! Jag hoppas på en superseriös och mörk film, typ The Dark Knight! Mitt titelförslag är redan spikat:
FLASH GORDON: A FLASH OF DARKNESS
