Popeye Movie in Development

It seems the well known squint-eyed character will also receive a reboot.

With several films in the Marvel universe and film industry in general receiving a reboot or remake, Marvel head Avi Arad has announced after acquiring the rights to Popeye that he wishes to reboot the character on screen but definitely not in the same light as the film released many years ago.

Instead he has decided to reboot the character as a CGI animated feature.

Popeye was first released as a comic strip in 1929 but as time went by, his popularity grew into different forms of media such as a cartoon series and a theatrical film release on December 12, 1980.

One of his most current and memorable moments was done as satire on Family Guy.
