Which Non-Marvel (and Non-DC) Character Has Netted This Huge Hollywood Star to Play Him?by

You could be forgiven for thinking that Marvel and DC have the monopoly over comic book adaptations – and that’s largely because they do! It’s been difficult for any cinema-goers to really avoid the hype behind big blockbuster movies such as the recent Avengers Infinity War and DC’s triumphant Wonder Woman last year – and while many viewers may prefer to avoid the superhero shtick altogether, there are plenty of us who can’t get enough of them. One hero, who falls under neither Marvel nor DC, looks set to return to the big screen thanks to Blumhouse Productions – and it’s not this character’s first time in hitting theaters.

Spawn looks set to be making a comeback – the Todd McFarlane creation, who was last seen in a self-titled movie in which he was portrayed by Michael Jai White, is set to be resurrected and rebooted by Blumhouse, and with McFarlane at the helm to direct. Spawn’s first movie adaptation in 1997 was met with mixed reviews and so it’s likely that this attempt to bring the Hell-dwelling vigilante back to the big screen will be focusing on a rather different tack. It’s thought, for starters, that Spawn won’t even be the main focus of the forthcoming movie – with the character of Twitch instead being pushed forward to center stage. All things considered, however, the Image Comics character is one of the best-known comic creations outside of Marvel and DC – and it’s thought that the hunt is on for a huge star to bring him to life.

It’s thought that Jamie Foxx is being sought to portray Spawn this time around, and while no confirmations have been made as yet, it goes without saying that his recruitment could be a major coup for Blumhouse. It’s early days as to how the new Spawn movie will turn out – and whether or not Foxx will be on board and playing a character who is not necessarily the main focus of such a movie. One thing’s for sure – it will be a comic adaptation without the lure of a cinematic universe – which, for some movie-goers, may be a breath of fresh air. With incredible money still being pulled in from comic book movies at the box office (one glance at figures for Infinity War will settle that), it’s hardly surprising that more characters are being adapted.
