Todd McFarlane and Blumhouse are working on a new Spawn movie. And this morning, McFarlane is teasing a possible Spawn cinematic universe.
He tells Bleeding Cool: “I’ve been having this conversation with people inside and outside the comic industry. I’ve been warming up my Hollywood agents to it. The big question is do we still do Spawn The Movie or do we offer something bigger than that? Because otherwise the only other option is you take your five best characters and you sell them to five different people. And they do five individual things and never the twain shall meet. Wouldn’t it be better if one person, if one group came and said, ‘hey you know, that’s interesting talk to us, and oh, by the way, Spawn at least right now is at the epicentre at that so we’ve we’re getting a lot of value just for that one character, talk to us about all the others.'”
Spawn follows a government assassin who is killed after being double-crossed by his boss. Upon arriving in Hell, he is offered an opportunity to return to Earth if he’s willing to lead an evil army. He accepts and is reincarnated as a “Hellspawn” — a twisted, horribly disfigured version of his former self. However, Spawn serves as a force of good, much to the dismay of the Devil’s henchman, a wicked clown.
Are you up for Spawn?
