Sometimes the side is just better than the main, TBH.
Princess Leia, Star Wars
I want a coming-of-age film. In all the comics and video games, she’s shown as being super-rebellious, and even got KICKED OUT of the Alderaan equivalent of boarding school for spreading Anti-Empire messages…like, is there a more timely story to tell?
Valkyrie, Thor: Ragnarok
There are so many options for a solo film. They could do a prequel about the All of the Valkyrie army fighting Hela in the past or something set in the present. Either way it would be amazing AF.
The Mauraders, Harry Potter
Everyone wants to know more about James, Sirius, Remus, and Peter when they were teenagers, without having to constantly rely on head canons. No one wants Newt Scamander…we want the marauders!
Haymitch Abernathy, The Hunger Games
Specifically a film about his time during the 50th Hunger Games. The mention of his games in the Catching Fire novel was amazing, but unfortunately the story of his Games was not included in the films, and it would be amazing to see his story.
Flynn Rider, Tangled
Why did he turn bad and why exactly did he change his name? So many unanswered questions…
Dwight Schrute, The Office
He definitely deserves his own spin-off show. It could be a prequel to the show or an epilogue and either way it would be amazing. Get more backstory on his sister and brother, Mose, the farm, how he and Angela got together initially…all of the other things we love about Dwight.
The Aliens, Toy Story
The green guys who imprint on Mr. Potato Head deserve their own spin-off. My cousin mentioned this to me one day, and not to be dramatic, but it was the best idea I️ had ever heard.
Bill Murray, Zombieland
I want a full-length movie depicting his zombie experience before the gang found him in the original movie.
Tom Riddle, Harry Potter
I want to see his descent into pure evil and his hunger for power spin out of control. I’m talking Hogwarts age and after. Seeing his planning of the horcruxes, creating them, his first kill. I want all of it.
Bucky Barnes, Captain America: Winter Solider
I mean his character is so complex and such a vital part of Captain America as a whole that a spinoff of only him and his perspective of the events in the Marvel universe would be an amazing addition.
Schmidt and Cece, New Girl
But also Winston, because he’s hilarious and amazing. I just want more New Girl where the focus is more on the three of them, and less on Jess and Nick. I’m really going to miss this show.
His character is so complicated and multi-dimensional. There are so many layers to him, and Tom Hiddleston just puts so much into the character, I would love a stand-alone film.
Harley Quinn, Suicide Squad
Even though Margot Robbie has talked about one being made, she needs a movie that shows her abusive relationship with the Joker, and her New 52 and Rebirth relationship with Poison Ivy.
Rose Tyler, Dr. Who
I’m about ten years too late for this. She has always been by far my favorite companion from the modern Dr. Who series. She was so witty and fun, and there were so many other characters from her storyline that I loved too. I would watch the heck out of a Rose spin-off!
The Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter
Something that shows that the Marauders weren’t the most important people in the war. Show me Marlene McKinnon, who’s family was considered one of the best, but ended up dead all the same. Show me Dorcas Meadows, who was such a threat Voldemort killed her personally. Show me the Longbottoms, who were unbelievably well-respected as Aurors. Just something dark and gritty, I want something that shows the danger and fear and how everyone is affected.
Prince’s Friends, Cinderella
I really like the idea of there being a Cinderella story from the point of view of the Prince’s friends. And they’re like just some normal, smart guys who have to figure out how to find their friend’s true love because the Prince is stupid enough to think trying on a shoe will work. And then he teams up with a local girl who’s like “stop trying to make me put on this stupid shoe, I’m not the one” and they use common sense in a world run by fairytale stupidity to find Cinderella.
She’s got a badass backstory which the movies play down WAY too much. She’s a proud African living in America, who’s figured out a way to uphold her culture whilst living in a country where she’s a double minority (Black AND Mutant). She performs her roles as mother, wife, queen and X-men leader with such finesse it’s too sexy to ignore! As a Black African woman, Storm taught me that I don’t have choose between a family and a successful career.
20th Century Fox
Forrest Gump and his son, Forrest Gump
This might be an unpopular suggestion, but I would love to see the relationship grow. Especially as his son gets older and goes through similar experiences as his father had.
Snoke, Star Wars
Where the heck did he come from? How did he get so powerful? Why does he look like a worm? We want answers.
Paris Geller, Gilmore Girls
Liza Weil (who played Paris) originally auditioned for Rory’s part, which she did not get, but the producers liked her so much they created the part of Paris just for her. She always stole the show for me.
A proper film on how exactly he became “The Joker.” From the very beginning up until his most recent conquest.
Targaryens, Game of Thrones
I would absolutely love to see what life was like in Westeros before Rhaegar decided to mess it all up.
Gaston, Beauty and the Best
I want to hear that dude’s backstory!
Now that Girls is over, they should do a show called Women where Shoshanna gets friends that don’t suck. She deserves it.
Deadly Viper Assassination Squad, Kill Bill
The other members deserve their own series. —butterflybutts91
Jean-Ralphio, Parks and Recreation
He is a wonderfully horrible character and Ben Schwartz is a comedic genius to watch. I wouldn’t miss an episode.
Natasha Romanoff, The Avengers
Say it with me now!!!
