A Fresh Take on a Classic Character

McFarlane has been clear about his vision for the new Spawn movie. He envisions a darker, grittier take on the character, drawing inspiration from the character’s comic book roots. This new adaptation promises to be a departure from previous versions, offering audiences a fresh perspective on the iconic anti-hero.

Progress on the Script

One of the most exciting revelations from McFarlane is that he has seen 80 pages of the script for the upcoming Spawn movie. This indicates significant progress in the film’s development and suggests that the project is moving forward at a steady pace. Here’s what he had to say on the matter:

The writers have been thinking about it a lot, hopefully, because they’re not able to do the writing.So all they can do is think about it so that as soon as the strike’s over, they can quickly finish the script. I’ve seen up to page 80 of the present script, so they’re near the finish line. I think they’ll get it done fairly quickly and then we’ll do some rewrites and we’ll be in Hollywood.

    This movie has to happen. the first one was just the tip of the iceberg so to speak. it just introduced the origin and a few of the characters and their purpose in the spawn universe, but now they have to get deeper into it ,such as exploring the pact that the character spawn has with the underworld and how that contributes to his existence and interactions and introductions of new and old characters, also the transformation of a few old characters into new life. Further more the death of his wife and how it transformed spawn into what he is today.They also have to explore a little into the military background to the spawn character as well, and how he defeated heaven and hell in killing malbogia Over all this second movie has a lot of ground to cover leading into a in depth look at the entire spawn universe. Looking so foward to this movie!!! Writers have a lot of choices in which direction this franchise can go!!…..CANT WAIT TO SEE WHATS COMING
    Huge fan since day 1 Juan R
