The first time many fans were introduced to Spawn is when the character's creator Todd McFarlane brought him to life back in the 1990s to the comic book world. 
 
Later fans seen an incarnation of Spawn on the big screen in 1997 and to many fans was the first time they were introduced to the character. The character was portrayed by actor and expert martial artist Michael J. White. The film received mixed reviews but became a cult classic for fans of both the comic book and later up and coming fans. 
 
Still, McFarlane was slated to start a sequel or continue a Spawn film for years and this was an off and on an ongoing thing. Years passed and with updates pertaining to the Spawn film came and it went from the film is coming to the film production has been halted to hearing nothing about the film in general. 
 
Fans became skeptical with every Spawn film update until back in 2016 when McFarlane revealed he was working on a script for an upcoming Spawn film. The script seemed extremely promising just as the movie and the constant updates continued. Later, Mcfarlane post that the Spawn script was finished and that he is eyeing someone to play Hell Spawn Al Simmons himself. Many people said bring back Michael J. White who portrayed him in the 90s film. Others stated to just leave MJW alone nad to get someone else. 
 
Well, it was recently revealed or about a year or so ago that actor Jamie Foxx will be playing Al Simmons aka Spawn in Mcfarlanes up and coming film. 
 
Now Mcfarlane has revealed some other shocking but befitting news for the New Year. 
 
Mcfarlane recently talked about the tone of his up and coming Spawn film and stated that he basically wants it to be as dark as possible and humorless. While talking to Nerdist this is what McFarlane stated:
 
There's no joy... There's gonna be no funny lines in it, and it's just gonna be this dark, ugly two hours worth of movie, which is essentially what a lot of supernatural/horror movies are anyway. There's not a lot of funny in them. And that seems to be a weird hurdle for a lot of people in this city to get over because they sort of go into a superhero/Avengers default all the time.
 
Spawn originally had an extremely horrific tone in the comic books and the 1990s HBO series actually brought that tone out and became extremely memorable. So this new dark tone means that Mcfarlane is going back to the comics with his new film. Still, I must say even though the comics were dark, there was a spot of humor that came from Spawn nemesis and guardian Demon the Violator who released his sadistic humor by taking on the appearance of a clown.
