I was a big Spawn fan. I began collecting the comicbook starting from the premiere issue. I think Todd McFarlane is an awesome artist. Unfortunately, his writing leaves much to be desired.
Despite that I supported him when his Spawn movie came out. It wasn’t a good movie mainly because the story was just too weak. Even though it made $87.8 million worldwide I didn’t want them to make a sequel anymore.
But apparently Hollywood still has faith in the Spawn character. Todd McFarlane has started writing the screenplay for a new Spawn movie. The new movie will reportedly not be a recap or a continuation but a completely stand-alone story. McFarlane said that the new movie will cater to an older audience, “just like The Departed.”
Good to see that McFarlane still hasn’t lost his arrogance.
