    It's been coming our way since 1998.

    I like Spawn but this sounds like Fant4stic level disaster.

    It seems to me, based on everything I've read, that this entity will almost be Spawn in name only. Why make a Spawn movie if it isn't Spawn?

    I'm looking forward to the reboot. Hope it happens. Also, didn't really know where to share this, but I cut a modern trailer together for the 1997 Spawn movie :) I figure this would be the best thread to post it in.

    Agreed. Spawn in name only. I want faithful adaption. Comic is great.

    We've been hearing about this reboot for 20 years. Why is it a news story again?

    Totally agree with both of you, give us a reboot that is faithful to the comics, not this crap he has been talking about for 20 years.

    This reboot is never happening anyway, so why worry about it?

    Oh, I'm sure the very second McFarlane says he gives up and the rights go on sale, someone will snap them up. Despite the film, which is certainly long forgotten, it's a lucrative property based on the toys alone.

    Meh! I still kinda like Spawn, I want a faithful adaptation, not this Aronofsky Year One sounding crap.

    Same - the comics are rife with rich imagery that would look fantastic on the big screen.

    Zack Synder might actually give this great visual flare, if he worked closely with McFarlane.

    That's actually a good pick. He is clearly more comfortable with darker material and R rated fare anyway. I'd be fine with that, and I think him attaching himself to this would actually get the movie greenlit.

    Yeah, I like Snyder myself but don't think the PG-13 movies suit him. Him directing a dark r rated Spawn could be awesome stuff.

    He also loves to include religion and try to make it deep, so I guess on these fronts he is suitable to direct a movie based on this franchise.

    Todd's been talking about this since like 2002. And once a year, he'll mention the script being 'done'. It's like..an annual tradition.

    It can happen, but I can see Netflix putting out the money..

    I think at this point Todd will actually have to die for this to be made.
