Spawn Reboot

I just watched the 1997 film again. It's pretty godawful, but it still seems like a premise with some potential. And... apparently Todd McFarlane has been working on a reboot (or wishing for it) for a while.

And according to this link, he wants DiCaprio.

Kazenji
The film did have some redeeming things with it

they got the look of the suit right and Violator done right.

Patient_Leech
Yeah, the suit looked good. But then there was some godawful stuff like the devil-creature: click. Wtf? mega fail.

Mr. Rhythmic
That movie was just a mess in general. I love Michael Jai White, but he literally did nothing in the film. Maelbolgia is supposed to be the Emperor of the series, the leading puppetmaster, and yet they just turned him into a awful-looking CGI throwaway character. Violator was too forced to be funny, an Martin Sheen was a bad miscast. I would try to set the series up as an anthology.

Movie 1 - Spawn trying to understand who he is, eventually fighting the mob and Overtkill. Movie ends with Violater kicking the shit out of him, and revealing the grander scheme of Simmons becoming a general for Hell.

Movie 2 - Introduce the concept of Heaven, and make the antagonist the Redeemer, with Jason Wynn becoming more and more involved in the war. Malebolgia reveals himself to Simmons for the first time, but only briefly, in order to express his incredible level of anger towards the Hellspawn, and says that the Necroplasm is starting to take hold. I would have Jason Wynn continue being the Redeemer, unlike in the comics, and he begins to live like Al, and the film ends with him disappearing in a blinding light. The Violater takes full control of Wynn's company. Chapel is hired by the Violator, and altered by the powers of Hell to match Spawn.

Movie 3: The Angela story-arch goes here, with Chapel as a secondary antagonist that leads to Spawn's full origins revealed.

Movie 4: Spawn and Angela take the fight to Malebolgia, and the series ends with Spawn redeeming himself under the eyes of the Mother of All Creation by killing Malebolgia.

I forgot how bad that devil was. Look how poorly it is designed. Hell, the forked tongue comes out of the top of it's mouth rather than the back of it's throat.

Malebolgia would look good now with a company like WETA or ILM doing him for a new movie.

That was Clown that was trying to funny, He needed to more like Heath Ledger's joker just evil and sadistic.

Hey it was the 90s John Leguizamo did what he could in light of what people expected of such films at the time.

Could've the film been darker like the anime...sure. But there's no way the marketing groups would've let that fly at the time.

Agreed.. the humor should have been a bit more subtle and less obnoxious. And for that, Leguizamo would obviously be the wrong choice...

I think this hero maybe a decade or two late to being relevant. Still done right Spawn would be sweet to see with today's modern CGI

Ascendancy
Still enjoy the original in spite of its flaws, mostly for the suit execution and the Violator fight. Wouldn't mind a reboot at all.

What about homey from Prison Break/Blade Trinity as Spawn?

Sadly they'd probably make the whole suit CGI now. Whereas that was actually one of the few things done right. I'm a big proponent of practical prosthetic special makeup effects when at all possible.

Yeah, it's still oddly kind of enjoyable. The Violator fight is pretty cool.

Esau Cairn
The one thing I always bitched about with the Batman & Superman movies was how their capes always hung limp & useless over their shoulders like a discarded fashion accessory.

I always thought Burton, Singer & Nolan would've taken inspiration from Spawn's (cgi) cape...making it more practical & giving it a life on its own.

roughrider
Hey, Todd McFarlane had all the control he wanted when he helped make this in the 90's. The fact it didn't come out so well is on him. If he's going to turn it over to someone who knows how to direct, fine.

The question is, how relevant is Todd Mcfarlane these days?
I mean his Spawn series proved that he was a great artist but lousy writer....

How much clout does his name have these days?

Haven't read Spawn in years. I honestly don't even know if it's still in publication. I think after the 1st 20 issues, I got bored with Macfarlane's writing, enjoyed a couple of issues where he had guest-writers then kinda lost interest....that's over 10 years ago.

Yeah its still going

for me even after the 20th issue it was still fairly good and i've only got Volumes 1 & 2 with the collections.

^This.
When I was a kid I recorded it on vhs and watched it daily must have seen it like 70-80 times.

Kazenji
That was the same with me back then

but now when i see all that CGI in hell it just looks dodgy.

super pr*xy
every cgi shot looks dodgy.. especially in HD.. i just saw this again on cable.. free trial..

Newjak
Yeah I watched it not too long ago, and the CGI heavy scenes wouldn't even be tolerable in a video game these days.

Also Micheal Jai White is awesome and if you need martial arts ba stuff or intimidating guy he is great but as an actor he is only middle of the field.

It shows in Spawn with a lot of more acting heavy scenes. Which to me it's an important to have a guy who can act cause a lot of Spawn's epicness comes from his torment as much as his BA factor.

With a lot of lessons learned from early attempts at comic book movies a spawn reboot would probably be way better today than the 97 one was.

Flyattractor
If they could make it like the toon and get an R rating instead of a PG-13 so stupid little kids can see it I would give it a chance...And McFarlane is a douchebag. Always has been always will be.

Never even seen the cartoon when it was out, Unless it never got shown in Australia.

Denzel Washington would be different, He hasn't done one of these comic book movies.

Denzel would be much better.

Denzel is a great actor and just by association he makes a movie better.

Watch it. The first season dragged a bit but in the end it was as edgy as a dark superhero show gets.

And to illustrate my earlier point. There is no way the censors would have allowed a live action version of that anime onto the public. Especially considering the money involved to make the film/films.

I liked the original movie, but then I like watching old fashioned films with their cheesy SFX. And michael jai white did a great job as he tends to do.

I hope they make a new spawn soon. With MJW reprising the role. Denzel is a bad idea. Maybe it's just because I just saw Flight, he's looking too old for such a role.

0mega Spawn
Black action stars are virtually non existant
So Mjw would probably be their choice

Whatever hapened to that djimon hounsou
He would be a good spawn

Newjak
I think Denzel would make a great Spawn.

Hmm... I'd really like to see a good reboot of this, and I like Jamie Foxx, but I'd rather not see him as Spawn. Let's let a white guy take a stab at it, lol. Somebody like Chris Hemsworth or something. I actually saw a guy in one of those annoying YouTube videos suggest a few people and I think one of them was Nathan Fillion. He'd be a great choice. I think another one was Dwayne Johnson.

Oh, shit: Michael Fassbender would be awesome.

And The Rock is in no way white.

Also, Nathan Fillion...Fassbender, come on.

Without going down the racist path, I Dislike them changing the colour of the person just for the movie

should only do it when there's a white/Black of that person in the comics.

That's cool. Jaime Foxx could be cool. I like him, but he's just so recognizable. Was thinking someone more obscure would be better, but it will probably require a big star to get made anyway. More power to him. I hope he and McFarlane can make it happen.

Bond is actually Scottish anyway, So with them going with Sean Connery the first time is spot on....Even says so in the novels

and also Bond was based on Fleming's life style.....so yeah stick with being white.

marwash22
what does his life style have to do with his ethnicity?

Lestov16
I am black, and I think they should keep Bond white. Do you think Batman should be black too? Steve Rogers as well? Just let characters keep their ethnicities. If you change them, all it will do is call attention to their ethnicity and make them a walking racial banner rather than a character. If you want a black Bond, create a story with a black guy who is just as cool as James Bond.

well Batman will be black once Affleck ruins it then Chadwick Boseman will take over.. lol


back on topic, I liked the first Spawn only for the visual effects.. this new version should a good story, decent acting, good villain and a good costume for Spawn

marwash22
Batman (the real Batman) is one person in the comics, and only one person, Bruce Wayne. I'd be fine with Batman being black, as long is it's not Bruce Wayne... some other (black) dude taking up the mantle of Batman, cool.

Conversely, Bond is NOT one person, so casting a black actor in the role hurts nothing.

jinXed by JaNx
Isn't Craig reprising his role, anyway?

I'm really not sure how to feel about this, Spawn reboot. I guess i'm worried that, Mcfarlane is trying to make a profitable film franchise rather than see that the fans interpretation of his original character is realized respectively. I'm not opposed to a change as long as it's genuine.

Impediment
Todd McFarlane needs to get off of his ass and make this reboot happen.

I watched Spawn last night for the first time in forever and it still sucks.

Idris Elba would make an awesome Al Simmons. F*ck Jamie Foxx.

The film, apparently, is in development Hell.

marwash22
i really like Idris Elba, but he's too often the go to name whenever the conversation turns to casting a black character in a superhero/action movie... he's becoming another Ryan Reynolds. Give someone else a shot, preferably someone younger than Idris.

Stealth Moose
Idris Elba has a lot of talent though. Not that Jamie doesn't, but I don't see him selling a superhero movie.

I think he would make for a fine, Spawn. I just think there would be better choices. Although, i'm sure his name power would do quite a lot for production. The last time I heard read anything from, Mcfarlane on this he wanted to take Spawn in a completely different direction. Personally, I'm with you. I just want to see a better script and a darker tone.

Forgive me but that would be incredibly ****ing stupid.

2.Spawn uses various firearms to not deplete his powers

Well judging by your namesake, you're obviously a bigger fan & more well-versed in Spawn.

I remember the movie having alot of potential but being such a dark character (no pun intended), the general public knew little of Spawn & audiences were mixed in judgement about the movie.
There was no clear line of good vs evil but more on choosing the lesser evil of characters portrayed.

I also remember the comics. Macfarlane is a great artist but lousy writer/story teller. He had a bad habit of sacrificing plot by constantly introducing more characters.

As you pointed out Spawn uses firearms so as not to deplete his powers....so wouldn't an ancient setting be more challenging for him not to turn to the dark side without the use of modern weapons?

I'm just commenting on yer "lazy Hollywood BS."
Regardless of how big budget or how much profit a film makes, Hollywood still, will always follow the "lazy guaranteed, if not politically correct, formula."

I mean "undead mercenaries bonded to demonic symbiotes" just translates to zombie soldiers on screen...that's enough explanation needed for the general public....not to mention toy merchandise.

The only other closest movie character adaptation to Spawn dealing with Heaven/Hell themes was Constantine & we all know how much Hollywood tamed & botched that storyline up.

Kazenji
That's why they need someone with the balls not to screw around with those things

only person i think that would be able to handle Spawn or Constantine would be Guillermo del Toro imo.

Kazenji
Todd McFarlane will be sharing some news tomorrow for the new movie on his FB page.

Kazenji
So the big thing Todd McFarlane had to say was he has Blumhouse Production's backing the new Spawn movie


Todd still wants to direct it, I'm not having much faith there after the last time a comic book writer attempted to make a movie we got 'The Spirit'

hoping Todd has more luck then what Frank did.

Yeah, I saw that McFarlane had some live video with Kevin Smith but I didn't have a chance to watch it. So the film has backing now? That's the big news?

And yeah, no one will be excited about him directing it.. :/

The Spirit was a terrible movie, but agreed here, and I'll give Robert Rodriguez some major credit for resigning from the Directors Guild of America over crediting Miller for Sin City.

He's also a hypocrite

*****'s and moan's how Hollywood messed with his Robocop 2 & 3 scripts. Yet he goes ahead and changes The Spirit to look like Sin City.

Robocp 2 would have been a way better film if they had come up with a diff ending.

The Spirit was a terrible movie, but agreed here, and I'll give Robert Rodriguez some major credit for resigning from the Directors Guild of America over crediting Miller for Sin City.

Ah, I guess that would explain why the follow-ups were lacking so heavily.

Ya, his one man film crew approach sure didn't pay off so much with Machete 1 & 2 as well as A Dame to Kill For. Not sure how much the DGA departure had to do with it, but I'm guessing it didn't help.

That shouldn't be to hard to pull off. DP was a pretty Soft R TBH.

I just hope it all works out for Todd in the end.

Flyattractor
Todd is an A-Hole at times. So Who gives an F about him.

Clearly you don't.

No one cares if it's "more R-rated than Deadpool" (whatever the hell that means). Just make a good movie.
