There are few things that hurt me - physically hurt me - more than thinking about the SPAWN movie. Admittedly, I haven't seen it for ages, but right now, as I reminisce, the only thing I can remember liking about it, was when Simmons goes "You wipe his ass too?"
Pretty lame for a movie that had the source material to kick all kinds of ass. Well, hopefully now Todd McFarlane (the creator of SPAWN) will have a chance to atone for that travesty, as he is seeking to write/finance a new Spawn flick. “I can make a spooky, suspenseful thriller that will scare the crap out of you,”
he says. I hope so, Todd, because the comic was bitchin'. I used to work a comic book store, and the only thing I can ever remember getting excited about reading (aside from the Wolverine origin story) was Spawn. The film will apparently be a reboot, which is just what the doctor ordered.
My blind faith in cinema forces me to believe that McFarlane won't miscast horribly again (John Leguizamo I'm looking at you), and this movie will be a huge success.
||Leguizamo actually ate live maggots on pizza for SPAWN. He must be so disappointed.
