McFarlane Writing Spawn 2 Movie

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.

    I really hope they do come out with a new Spawn movie, like what was said before..it is long overdue. I also think beside making a new Spawn movie, they should make The Maxx movie. That would be awesome!!

    • GhostWheel

      YES!!!!! The Maxx…but you’ve got to wonder…How would that purple suit on film? Remember The Phantom? Terrible.

    Get a world class wrestler or body builder with the proper shape and legs for Spawn. Spawn deserves the best. No more pre-fab muscle suits. Let his natural build be seen through a lycra type suit. Do a google search to find the company to do it. Make the suit right: black, red and white in the original places. Thanks! Can’t wait for the movie.

    Tip: Whoever does a Superfriends movie will make a Billion dollars!

    Is everyone here a moron? Or just 12 years old? The Movie adaptation of Spawn was terrible! I’m a huge fan of Spawn and find the story line to be one the most riveting in years. The depth of the mystery surrounding the two detectives as well as the personal struggle of Al Simmons in his afterlife carries the comic further than Spawn’s superpowers. The movie version glossed over all of the key plot points and focused instead on cgi that really wasn’t all that good anyway. Where was Spawn’s cape? The chains looked like they were about 4 ft long. And Micheal Jai White, while not a horrible actor, does not have the physique for Spawn….he’s too short. Martin Sheen as Jason? No way. The only good casting done for the movie was John Legquizamo…(probably misspelled). This is Hollywood at it’s worst…sacrificing quality material for a quick buck. Todd, we love you….PLEASE…GIVE US A SPAWN MOVIE THAT IS ON PAR WITH YOUR WONDERFUL COMIC.

      Ghostwheel you need to google Micheal Jai White and take another look since the first spawn the guy has increased his muscle mass by over 35%. He’s absolutely huge, as far the acting goes I thought he made a good spawn l believe it was writing , visual effects and the fact they were trying to bring in a younger audience that took away from this film. You also have to remember transitioning from comic to big screen is not that easy as you can read from these post everyone has their own opinion about what they think should be changed but it seems that everyone does agree it needs to be R-rated.
