SPAWN Movie Director Todd McFarlane Addresses Plans To Redesign The Hero For The Big Screen

SPAWN Movie Director Todd McFarlane Addresses Plans To Redesign The Hero For The Big Screen

Yesterday, Todd McFarlane revealed that The Walking Dead's Greg Nicotero will help bring Spawn to life on the big screen and the comic book creator/director has now weighed in on redesigning the hero...

Spawn has an iconic appearance, and while it's fair to say that fans of the character would like to see that brought to the big screen, it's equally as likely that the character's look will undergo some changes (and possibly end up being radically altered).

However, with creator Todd McFarlane at the helm of the movie, the risk of that is massively reduced, and he's now addressed what changes the suit could end up going through.

Apparently, while we will recognise Spawn, he won't necessarily be wearing the suit we're all used to. 


"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," McFarlane reveals. "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."

That all makes sense and definitely sounds like the best approach for this movie.
