PUBLISHED FORMAT: comic book series
AUTHOR/CREATOR: Stan Lee
ORIGINAL PUBLICATION YEAR: 1963-present
HAVE I READ: No
NOTES: I tried to avoid putting the comic book superheroes in here, but I guess they all originated in written works. However, it seems that the films of most, if not all, superhero adaptations used storylines from several comic books or they created completely original plots exclusively for the films, so pinpointing exact issues used in the films will be impossible, primarily because I don't actually read comic books and wouldn't know where to start in tracking said information down.

Fun note: I typed Annie into the search bar of Listal and the three well-known adaptations came up.

NOTES: Lost Moon detailed the disastrous miracle that was the Apollo 13 mission. Fun fact: One of the most famous misquoted quotes of all time appears in this film. "Houston, we have a problem," is what we hear in the film, spoken by Tom Hanks (who portrays Jim Lovell). The actual words spoken by Jim Lovell himself were "Houston, we've had a problem."

FROM MY COLLECTION, I have compiled this list of movies and the occasional TV show came from novels, short stories, comic books, etc. Basically anything that I own, that was published in the written word before it was turned into a movie. It does not include vice versa (books that were based on movies/TV shows). There are some movies on this list that I didn't even know were based on novels, or other forms of the written word. I'm going to include notes on the actual publications where I can find the information. Basic notes will include author name(s), original title (if different from film title), and publication year, but I may add more details as I see fit. See the notes for The Amazing Spider-Man for my general details regarding the comic book superheroes.

This list has primarily been created as a future reading list for myself, but I thought I would publish it in case anyone else was interested in where some movies come from.
