Greg Nicotero has joined the production team of ‘Spawn‘ to bring the antihero and likely whatever monsters are in the film to life and now creator Todd McFarlane is opening up as to how things are going to change. While the overall feel of ‘Spawn’ will be the same, it sounds as if the design past that might be getting changed around.
How is that going to be happening? According to McFarlane:
“Does Spawn have a dark mask and his body dark and then does he have a cape in the comic books? Yes, yes, yes. Will he have all of that in the movie? Yes, yes, yes. So it’s not like I’m going to give him wings instead of a cape and I’m not going to give him no mask instead of a mask. There’s no going to be any of that. It just won’t be exactly what a hardcore fan is used to.
But I’m hoping that people who just go and are familiar with Spawn will say, ‘Yeah, it’s in the box.’ And people who know nothing about Spawn will go, ‘Wow, that’s cool.’ And I have to design for film goers not for comic book fans because the film goers are going to be bigger than the pool of the comic book fans.”
So Jamie Foxx will still get to play the character that he’s wanted to for six years now, but this iteration is going to be looking slightly different. As there have been different Spawns throughout the years in the comics, this shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise even if it was meant to be a take on the one we were initially introduced to.
Are you looking forward to ‘Spawn’ getting a slightly new design for his upcoming film? Do you feel that Greg Nicotero is the perfect creative to bring the character to life? Share your thoughts below!
