'Spawn' Creator Todd McFarlane Talks Upcoming Reboot

McFarlane also discusses the 25th anniversary of Image Comics.

Back in July, we showcased Todd McFarlane's rise from being the guy to bring Spider-Man into the '90s for Marvel to being president of the third-largest (and arguably dopest) comic book house in the world, Image Comics. Around the time we gave you his blueprint, he was at San Diego Comic-Con, announcing that he would be bringing Spawn back into theaters via Blumhouse (who have made magic with films like Get OutThe Purge series, and Split).

McFarlane has been teasing the idea of the film (which he planned on writing and directing) for years, but now it's a reality. During this past New York Comic-Con, we got McFarlane in-studio to break down why he chose to bring his new vision for Spawn to Jason Blumhouse as opposed to cashing in a huge Hollywood check, what 25 years of Image Comics means, and gives fans a glimpse of what we can expect from his film director debut.

With McFarlane letting it be known that you can expect everything from a possible Spawn movie franchise to possibly revisiting the successful Spawn animated series, this won't be the last you'll hear of McFarlane's upcoming Spawn reboot. Check out the full interview up above.
