You may not realize it, but Spawn has been in numerous forms of media since his creation by Todd McFarlane for his Image comic print. He’s had cartoons, been in video games, and even had his own live action movie.
Many years later, McFarlane has written what he hopes will be the final version of the next Spawn movie, and though he has some tweaks to do, he’s more or less ready for the next step:
“I’ve finished the script, and I’m in the process of editing,” McFarlane told ComicBook when asked for an update. “It’s 183 pages, and [producers] usually like 120. I still think it’s going to end up being about 140, because I’m putting in details for myself.”
His plans for the film actually resemble the recently released Deadpool film, as he’s not trying to do anything super special per se, but rather, he’s attempting to make the character relevant again in the eyes of mainstream media and fans.
“I want to keep it small, keep it tight, so they’ll let me direct it!” he said. His goal is to see production start in 2016. “I need to get him back up on the big screen again to make him relevant in a big way, which we will do,” he said
