Todd McFarlane Reveals That His Upcoming SPAWN Film Will Not Be Anything Like An AVENGERS Movie

In a recent interview, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane revealed that the upcoming movie will have no fun lines, no joy, and it will be very dark — unlike the Avengers movies that Marvel Studios produces...

Since Marvel Studios first introduced the brilliant Iron Man to the world all the way back in 2008, people have been getting used to superhero movies having a certain tone to them; and go in expecting a fun, family friendly, joyful ride — which is exactly what Todd McFarlane's Spawn movie will not be.

In a recent interview with Nerdist, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane revealed that his upcoming movie will be something that people aren't expecting — at least when it comes to the tone that has lately become the standard for superhero flicks — calling it a joyless, dark and ugly movie.

McFarlane said that he wants to "go in a different corner that nobody is touching right now" by introducing a character that is a "deeply serious, dark, and almost disturbing R version of a superhero character".

"There’s no joy. There’s gonna be no fun lines in it, and it’s just gonna be this dark, ugly two hours worth of movie, which is essentially what a lot of supernatural/horror movies are anyway", explained McFarlane when asked to define the kind of movie that Spawn will be. He then contrasts his upcoming movie to the Avengers films, saying that fun lines aren't part of a horror movie and neither will they be in Spawn.

"There’s not a lot of funny in them[horror movies]. And that seems to be a weird hurdle for a lot of people in this city to get over because they sort of go into a superhero/Avengers default all the time".

To be fair, Spawn has never been a character that would benefit from the "Marvel formula", so it is nice to see that McFarlane will not be trying to make it a fun blockbuster just for the sake of it, and will stay true to the source material he created.

Todd MacFarlane's Spawn movie still doesn't have an official release date.
