It’s been more than two decades since Spawn premiered, the first movie to bring an African-American superhero to the movies. However, the film was not well received by the critics and the spectators who came out disappointed in the movie theaters.
This served Todd Tamerlane, the creator of the character, as an experience to take full control of the new Spawn project.
This is how the famous comic book character will return with a reboot, at a time when theaters are plagued with stories of superheroes.
For this reason, McFarlane wants to differentiate his film from the rest of the stories by making a production with a dark tone and no jokes in between.
“There’s no joy,” McFarlane told me. “There’s gonna be no fun lines in it, and it’s just gonna be this dark, ugly two hours worth of movie, which is essentially what a lot of supernatural/horror movies are anyway. There’s not a lot of funny in them. And that seems to be a weird hurdle for a lot of people in this city to get over because they sort of go into a superhero/Avengers default all the time.”
In addition, I add that: “There are no funny things in them, and that seems to be a curious obstacle for many who go to the movies always expecting these things of funny superheroes like the Avengers”
For now the actors confirmed to participate in the Spawn reboot are Jamie Foxx as Al Simmons / Spawn, and Jeremy Renner as Detective Twitch Williams.
