The latest news on Spawn’s cinematic reboot from Todd McFarlane

Let’s go back to talking about San Diego Comic-Con 2022, and more precisely when the comic creator Todd McFarlane updated fans on the film’s production reboot focused on Spawn, a character he first created in 1992 for Image Comics. The latter is a hellish anti-hero who worked as a murderer for the government before he was killed. The character returned to the realm of the living thanks to a deal with the devil to become a Hellspawn.


Where is the Spawn reboot?

The film about Spawn has been talked about for years, since 2015, when McFarlane announced plans to write and direct a new reboot on the character, after the 1997 film adaptation. The film is expected to be produced by Blumhouse, a company that deals of shaping horror films, and starring Jamie Foxx in the role of the co-star along with Jeremy Renner. From 2015 onwards the production has undergone numerous postponements, but nothing has ever changed: Todd McFarlane is still convinced to bring the character to the big screen, so much so that in August 2021 the writer Brian Tucker was involved in the project to come up with a new script.

Now the creator of the comic, during an interview with released during the SDCC, revealed details about the status del reboot by Spawn, stating that, despite the Covid-19 pandemic, the project is adding new “pieces” from time to time. Incidentally, Todd McFarlane anticipated that we will have further and important updates on the film during the New York Comic Con of next October 2022:

We discussed whether to make a big announcement in San Diego or wait until New York Comic Con. In the end we decided that we will do it in New York. Are we moving? Are we adding pieces? Yes. The best thing I can say right now, besides all that is happening, is that production has been slowed down by the pandemic and is now resuming.

Recall that the 1997 adaptation starring Michael Jai White had mostly gotten negative reviews. Before concluding, we point out that on Amazon you can buy the fumetto Spawn Deluxe n. 1published by Panini Comics.
