If Waterman Entertainment has anything to say about it, Marvel’s most beloved properties (i.e. Spider-Man, the X-Men, and/or The Avengers) won’t be the only ones getting the feature film treatment. The banner has acquired the film rights to the comic publisher’s series Strikeforce: Morituri. Created by Peter B. Gillis and artist Brent Anderson, Strikeforce is set in a future in which aliens have all but conquered Earth. When a scientist uncovers a way to give humans superpowers (known as the “Morituri Process”), they finally have the ability to fight back. Unfortunately for mankind, though, the process comes with quite a catch in that it will kill anyone who undergoes it within a year.
