Spawn fans had all-but given up hope of ever seeing the live-action reboot creator Todd McFarlane has been teasing for the past few years, but it seems there's finally been some movement on the project.
McFarlane sent out the following Tweet earlier tonight, promising that "huge Spawn movie news" is coming at some point tomorrow.
His post included a first look at the movie's official logo (just kidding... we hope!)
Last we heard, Spawn was still in active development at Blumhouse, but the pandemic is believed to have caused significant delays, and the fact that McFarlane wants to direct is rumored to have resulted in its own set of problems.
As far as we know, Jamie Foxx is still attached to play the title role. The Spider-Man: No Way Home actor shared the following update earlier this year during an interview with ComicBook.com.
"I talk to Todd and we want to craft something that is so special because I remember seeing the first Spawn movies and then seeing the HBO versions and so we have something that is almost like an original, without giving too much away," Foxx said. "But it starts in a way that is so cool. And it's not big budget, you know? And that's what I love about it."
Though the character's popularity has dwindled somewhat over the years, Image's Spawn was one of the best-selling comic books of the '90s. The 1997 movie failed to do the comic justice, but the HBO animated series was a lot more successful.
This reboot is being developed with a R-rating in mind, but that's about all we have to go on for now. Be sure to check back tomorrow to find out what McFarlane is teasing!
