Todd McFarlane: 'Spawn to Be More Violent Than 'Logan' & 'Deadpool'
March 7, 2017
Spawn is without any doubt one of the greatest
anti-heroes in the comic book and arguably the most powerful and
brutal. The first film for the hellish/demonic being first came
about back in the 90s. The film received mixed reviews and many
fans thought there would be a sequel to the film series. However,
this was revealed to not be happening and a reboot would be made
Creator of the series, Todd McFarlane, teased for
years that a new Spawn film was coming. However, the updates were
kind of scratchy and never fully happened. This is until last year
when McFarlane revealed that he was finished with the script and
the film was now officially happening. Today Todd Mcfarlane has
given an update and the update is nevertheless pleasing to the
ears. McFarlane, speaking with the crowd at Emerald City Comic Con,
talked about his Spawn project.
“If here’s PG-13 and here’s Deadpool and here’s
Logan, we’re going to be here,” McFarlane stated. He then used his
hands to show just how far he plans to take
It seems like the box-office success of other
R-Rated superhero films is allowing ‘Spawn‘ to gain some steam.
Todd McFarlane doesn’t seem to want to compromise his vision of how
the project should go and I applaud
McFarlane earlier said that he’s looking to make
the titular character a real boogeyman.
In the background, there’s this thing moving
around, this boogeyman. That boogeyman just happens to be something
that you and I, intellectually, know is Spawn. Will he look like he
did in the first movie? No. Will he have a supervillain he fights?
No. He’s going to be thespectre, the ghost.”
This project seems positively amazing or at least
what McFarlane has revealed so far. I'm pretty sure that these
updates are not just to make fans unbelievably excited but actually
warn many fans just how gruesome the character will be. I mean in
the comics, Spawn and the world around him was unbelievably
grotesque. His fellow demons, angels and even the humans and the
way they are slaughtered in the series shows just how things are
supposed to be.
Does this update make you ready for Spawn's
coming? What do you think? Let MovieCreedLive know by commenting
