Fandom Friday: 5 Spin-offs I’d Like To See Get Made

This fandom Friday is hard for me, because I don’t really give much thought to spin-offs. So, this time I had to really think about which spin-offs I’d like to see on the big or small screen. Perhaps, you won’t find in the list what you might be expecting, but, here are my choices!

1. Gospel of Loki, as a Thor/Avengers Spin-off.

As you know, all the MCU movies till now, have as a central character Thor or the Avengers (in connection to Asgard). However, I’d love to watch something just related to Loki’s point of view. A spin-off if you will. Loki’s Army members have been pleading for a Loki solo movie since times immemorial (that’s, since Thor was released worldwide). So, my first ever choice would be a Spin-off for Loki, in a movie shape. Yup: it has to be on the big screen.

2. Battle Star Galactica: Gaius Baltar and Caprica Six.

BSG: Gaius Baltar and Caprica Six live on Earth. How were their lives on earth? Was Gaius able to farm as he insisted? Which were their adventures? Did they create a tribe with other humans and Cylons from Galactica? This is a spin-off I’d really love to see on the small screen. I loved this couple!

3. Luna Lovegood adventures.

Luna Lovegood is one of the Harry Potter characters that is dearest to me. She is a little bit weird, but it is precisely so what keeps her so close to me. In fact, I think it would be awesome to have a spin-off based on her life and personality. She is fun, awesome and someone you can count on. I wonder, how her life has been after all the Harry Potter adventures.

4. Gimli and Legolas adventures after LOTR.

If you’ve read LOTR, you’ll discover that Gimli and Legolas set off to do some sightseeing before both return to their homes. These two friends argue all over the books about which site, elvish or dwarfish, is best. So, at the end, they set off to do exactly that: sightseeing. However, instead of taking this idea from the books, I’d love to see more adventures in the Middle Earth with some of the main characters. In this case: Gimli and Legolas. A weird couple, if you ask me, but a funny one. Don’t you agree?

5. Dune Spin-off.



This is a film I really enjoyed. And I would love to see a spin-off about it! It is a movie by David Lynch, made in 1984. If you watch it, you’ll find some funny stuff in it. However, if there was a spin-off with the technology we have now, I bet the movie would be extremely great!


The idea of 5 Fandom Friday was started up by Super Space Chick, and I found it out at the Nerdy Girlie.

  • Why is it that I’m not surprised by these spin-offs involving Loki? xD

    • xDDDDD ‘Coz I’m really Loki’d 3:)

  • Ooh Luna, would love to read/see more from her!

    • Yup 🙂 It would be awesome, right? 😀

  • Gimli & Legolas, and Luna?! Yes please! A-mazing list!

    I love ALL your choices haha. I could see each of them being really great shows. Especially like the idea of Dune, I really liked the movie, and I bet it could be even better now. Maybe they’ll just do a remake of the movie someday…

    • Thank you! <3 Yeah, I'd love to see Dune again, though I must admit that as it is now is perfect as well. However, I am curious about what could be achieve with Dune right now :p

  • Yes to all of these, but ESPECIALLY to a Dune spin-off! Such a classic, awesome sci-fi movie<3 Maybe something based around Alia and her life?

    • Oh! That would be **AWESOME** 😀

  • Very nice! Love these ideas:)

  • Melissa (Eris)

    I want to see all of these!!! Especially Loki ; )
