Waiting for a Marvel Zombies movie? Don't hold your breath.
Movie bloggers have been keeping in touch with Marvel and Studio President Kevin Feige quite often. He's been pretty open with the projects within the universe so much so that I almost feel like the guy should have a podcast to keep everyone up to date with all the on-goings.
EW recently spoke with Feige about several properties we already knew about (most are mentioned here), and one that might have been in the back of our mind but never thought would come to fruition. That would be Marvel Zombies.
With the current popularity of the undead, it could be a hit with fans or a complete miss, which many who read the comic weren't entirely in love with it to say the least even if it was written by Robert Kirkman (THE WALKING DEAD). But Marvel isn't going to end the phases with a tragically comedic and gruesome ending because trends are just trends in the end.
I know… Zombies is such a funny thing because its such a cool comic and it’s such a cool idea, but the bigger profile becomes what starts to happen [with fans]."
Not to mention that Marvel wants to appeal to a wide audience, and Zombies wouldn't be something you could take the small kiddos to:
"Are you going to draw figures in chalk with your 3-year-old with Hulk eating someone? Or Captain America with his brains coming out of the top of his head? Probably not."
Bottom line: Don't expect to see Marvel Zombies. Ever.
|Extra Tidbit:||I enjoyed the short run of Marvel Zombies. It certainly doesn't appeal to me as a film, but it was good on the page. Did anyone else like it? Why? Also why to those who didn't.|
