Todd McFarlane took an innovative approach to his comic book character Spawn. Unlike most popular heroes and villains of the comics, this hero is neither a saint nor a demon. While many comic book readers have made up their minds as to what should happen with the Spawn reboot, it’s clear that McFarlane has no such agenda in mind at all. He wants to create a cinematic experience unlike any other.
There was a time when Spawn, the comic book character, had all the right ingredients to be appreciated by mainstream audiences. But 20 years ago, a movie made it clear that people in Hollywood still do not understand true art as opposed to wanting to exploit art for their own means. Fans are sick of relying on Marvel and DC for our comic book-based entertainment, so they’re hoping that more people from the video game industry jump in and start taking superhero adaptations seriously enough again to protect them from this kind of idiocy.
With that being said, these are the 3 reasons a Spawn movie will reinvent the superhero genre–
It Will Embrace The Horror Genre For The First Time In A Superhero Movie
This isn’t just any ordinary superhero movie! But it is said to have an edge, one that’s incomparable to anything else we’ve seen in the genre. Todd himself echoed loud that the new movie is going to be a blend of superhero and horror movies. Regardless of genre, he has attempted to bridge the gap between two completely different types of films by creating something wholly original and unexpected.
It May Echo Loud That Small Budget Still Works
Following the success of Deadpool, filmmakers have been opting for low-budgeted horror movies instead of bigger-budget superhero movies. Meanwhile, M. Night Shyamalan’s latest thriller, Split, was a huge hit and Jordan Peele’s chilling flick Get Out is quickly gaining momentum at the box office. But none of them got the recognition they should have, but Spawn will get it.
It Will Cater The Superhero Movie Fans Something Beyond DC And Marvel
Masked heroes like Daredevil, Wolverine, and Captain America have been portrayed in blockbusters recently. However, Marvel Cinematic Universe’s films are becoming increasingly tiresome to fans. There is a decent amount of fan anticipation for these films. It is due to the potential each one carries with it. If Todd McFarlane can create a film that is honestly just as good as he promises it will be; then his Spawn project will convince Hollywood studios not to solely rely on films centered on DC and Marvel Universes.
