The first image from the upcoming comic book adaptation Jonah Hex has landed online and even though it’s only one image, it’s clear that they’re headed in a very clear direction: bad-ass.  And like my grandma always says, “You can’t go wrong with bad-ass.”  It also jibes with the bad-ass footage I saw at Comic-Con.  Warner Bros. is getting the word out that deformed, gun-slinging anti-hero Jonah Hex (played by Josh Brolin) kills people just as easily as you and I would smile, or blink, or breathe.  That would be terrifying were it not so bad-ass.  Also, check out the interviews Steve did at Comic-Con with Josh Brolin and with Megan Fox, Michael Fassbender, and director Jimmy HaywardJonah Hex hits theaters on June 18, 2010.

For those just tuning in, here’s the official synopsis for Jonah Hex.  And check out the full image after the jump:

Jonah Hex (Josh Brolin) is a scarred drifter and bounty hunter of last resort, a tough and stoic gunslinger who can track down anyone…and anything. Having survived death, Jonah’s violent history is steeped in myth and legend, and has left him with one foot in the natural world and one on the “other side.” His only human connection is with Leila (Megan Fox), whose life in a brothel has left her with scars of her own. But Jonah’s past is about to catch up with him when the U.S. military makes him an offer he can’t refuse: in exchange for his freedom from the warrants on his head, he must track down and stop the dangerous terrorist Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich). But Turnbull, who is gathering an army and preparing to unleash Hell, is also Jonah’s oldest enemy and will stop at nothing until Jonah is dead. Based on the legendary graphic novel, “Jonah Hex” is an epic adventure thriller about one man’s personal quest for redemption against the vast canvas of the battle between good and evil.
