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.
