McFarlane Writing Spawn 2 Movie

74 Comments

Comic book writer, artist, and toy maker Todd McFarlane has decided that the 1997 movie “Spawn”, based on his comic book series of the same name, is pure crap, and he wants to make a “Spawn 2″, except this Spawn will have no ties to the last Spawn movie, and McFarlane is tinkering with the idea of just calling this one “Spawn” again. Which, if true, would be really confusing. Personally I think it would be cooler if he called it, “Spawn 2: Pwnd”. Get it? Ah, well. Anyways, Bloody-Disgusting quotes McFarlane as saying about the new Spawn script he’s writing, “I can make a spooky, suspenseful thriller that will scare the crap out of you.” I don’t know what Todd is talking about; the first one scared the crap out of me — it was that awful.

A CIA agent killed by his own boss for witnessing his corruption, Al Simmons was sent to hell. To see his wife one more time, he made a deal with the demon Malebolgia to become an undead “hellspawn.” Spawn has tried to retain his own humanity while finding a way out of Malebolgia’s control and battling a variety of enemies, both supernatural and mafia-related.

    The first Spawn movie was good but I wish had the CGI we have today. I think they should remake the film or make a new one but make more scarier and hardcore especially when it comes to action scenes, just like the comics. The new film should show more of the real dark side of Spawn and his real battle within himself both mentally and physically. I believe it should be a longer film and have more than one bad guy for Spawn to go toe to toe with. The film should be raised to newer highest.

      I agree that the Spawn movie was good, and the effects were what was a standard for the 1990s. I think there is a lot of material that could be covered if the story of spawn were continued instead of recreated. Flashbacks could suffice for those who do not know the story already. I want to see spawn in action!!

    The first spawn film was awesome, I don’t care what anybody says about it, it was just plain cool at the time when it came out yeah sure it’s gonna be a little cheesy at the time but think about the technology in films and movie making at the time of 1997 it wasn’t at all the best to today’s standards which is the never ending cycle of making movies and criticizing them, Hell someone will probably say in 10 years from now well the technology at todays standard wasn’t good enough and say that the standard 10 years from now will be better but honestly I wouldn’t mind seeing a new spawn film. The fan base and the community is long overdue for this film in fact 10 years overdue if I might add. However the film will be just a bit better if they seriously follow what some of the fans are screaming for show more of the darkside of spawn, yes have it so he speaks in the film and yes have him seen as well not the rumor of “all you’ll see is him popping out of the shadows and killing someone and then disappearing to make the people go” “what the hell was that”. I believe the movie will be better if it’s a direct sequel in a sense but also a re-boot of the franchise as Todd McFarlane said. Well to be honest he can do both by making it a direct sequel and a re-boot of the franchise at the same time, to do this all Todd would have to do is use some of the best in animation techniques or CGI techniques to better the special effects and step up the acting a bit, I have to admit yes in the first film there were some acting screw up’s but it was a time to dive or delve into that genre of movie at the time because the industry and the fans called for it! I really do hope this movie works out in the end as I am a very big fan of spawn and the spawn comic books.

    I’m a big fan of spawn…but when i first saw the film i knew it should of been rated R! because the HBO version was R rated! but tthe movie it’s self was aight…but when ever they descide to create part 2…shock everyone by creating a horror movie based on the two cops, the movie shouldnt be about spawn as much…let him be the ghost that pops up when you here that spooky music playing….and with todays graphics they can really capture the death in spawns appearence. honestly the movie should be about simmons daughter being kidnapped by some sicko and spawn finds him before the cops do…but of course some in betweens such as a hooker getting killed in the wrong alley way! as this guy thinks he’s gotten away with murder and free ass..lol…this guy quitely walks thru the alley…a loud bang of a dumpster being slammed with extreme force hits the wall…here comes that spooky music…and here comes spawn! let the homeless tell the story of the ghost in the alleys that they see every once in a blue moon. The two cops should have the main roles in the movie from leads in the kidnappings too them getting a brief look at spawn
