Spawn creator Todd McFarlane heads to New York Comic-Con for a panel that die-hard fans won’t want to miss. Luckily, we have the exclusive livestream of the panel for you right here! We’re expecting to hear more about McFarlane’s ongoing expansion of his McFarlane Toys offerings as well as an update on the highly anticipated, R-rated reboot of his Spawn movie.
The last we heard, Blumhouse Productions had signed on for the low-budget take on a superhero movie that McFarlane himself is directing. Here’s what Jason Blum had to say:
How will Spawn compare to current superhero films?
Blum: This Spawn movie is a kind of superhero movie, but a very different kind of feeling superhero movie. I like the idea of low-budget superhero movies. It’s cool.
Are you drawing from any specific story arcs from the comics?
Blum: Yeah, for sure. Todd [McFarlane] is doing it. He’s directing it, which is very cool, so we definitely will.
Hopefully we’ll get an idea of just how the movie will put a spin on the genre and bring something new to it. Here’s when you can watch the panel!
