Spawn 2?

06.01.2007
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.
Extra Tidbit: Leguizamo actually ate live maggots on pizza for SPAWN. He must be so disappointed.

Word on the street...

So, I actually heard about this a long long time ago. Essentially, yea, they're going for Spawn bein' a more secondary character -- Like the Alien in ALIEN. The idea is to produce it as a horror film type of thing and have Spawn run around and just f*ck up everybody. So, I ain't too unhappy about that.

John Leguizamo (sp?) was the best part of the old Spawn, but only because by comparison the movie was terrible. Danny Devito would have been terrible in the role.

Finally, to all the

Finally, to all the people who want Angela in the movie, there's really no chance of that happenin'. For one, McFarlane didn't come up with Angela, another writer did -- who since has sued McFarlane for the use of that character and Cogliostro after he left IMAGE -- So, that dick f*cked up that hope. That's why they invented Tiffany -- basically the same gal, just ... not.

Wow, James. You used to work at a comic-book store? You must be an expert. Especially if you appreciate such fine writing as the Wolverine orgin story. Sigh.

Posting to agree with Darin. Leguizamo is a genuine talent and he was not bad as the clown!

John Leguizamo Rocked

Although the Spawn movie looks like crap now, remember seeing it when it first came out? I'm sure you were jocking it then. "F" all you Leguizamo nay-sayers. He was great as the clown. Don't hate on the guy. He's a great actor that just gets less-than-great roles.

Leguizamo

And on one more point, any moron who thinks The Pest was a better actor for Clown than Danny Devito deserves nothing short of death.

#1: Naturally short
#2: Naturally sarcastic bastard.

not from DC

1st of all, spawn aint from DC, it was image and now top cow. Now for my 2nd and most important view, i didnt dislike the 1st movie, the only that sucked were the FX, when you see hell, you're looking at a puppet show, it's kermit goes to hell. Aside from that, the story, compared to most comic to movies, was ok.

Hope tis gets made with a hard R rating too though, spawn aint kiddy material, this is supposed to be all kinds of violent.

I wouldnt put angela in for the 1st movie though

I wouldnt put angela in for the 1st movie though (considering this probably wont be a sequal) let's get a good back story and a 2nd rate vilain to introduce the story.

This old gag

Todd's been trying to do this since the first movie bowed out of the theaters. Like any of the announced DC superhero movies (besides Superman & Batman), I'll believe when I see it on DVD.

How about they stop talking about it and make it already. Every 8 months Todd says he's going to make a sequel and then you never hear anything about it.

It'll be the shit, but let's have it already.

idea time

this could be a classic movie if they let one of those dope mexican directors put thier fingers on it. I'm talking about Cuaron in particular. And Del Toro could redeem his ass for that Hellboy crapola

Stormz is right. The only thing that is remotely watchable in Spawn is Leguizamo. Go Spawny-Go Spawny.

Reboot sounds nice, although McFarlane should let someone like Alex Proyas to direct the movie.Oh yes, let Angela be in the movie too. :)

while i liked the Spawn movie and will see this, i'm kind of hesitant regarding it if he follows the original intention of having spawn as a minor background character and centering on sam and twitch solving murders

Hopefully McFarlane will force the studio execs to sign off on a hard R for this movie. It's the only way I can see it being any good considering the source material. If it's going to be a PG13 flick, I foresee it being another crap fest like the first one.

Why? Spawn is played out and dead and buried. Who the hell reads spawn anymore. Thanks but no thanks. To me spawn was always a stupid comic book character. The only good comics darkhorse ever published was sin city and hellboy.

They should just reboot it ala Batman Begins and Casino Royale. It's been 10 years and you really can't continue on with a crappy movie as the predecessor.

Actually Leguizamo is the only thing that made the Spawn flick interesting. Still it was an overhyped movie.
