Creator Todd McFarlane previously found success in bringing his unique superhero creation Spawn to both the big and small screen with a live action feature film in 1997 and an animated HBO series that debuted that same year. Now, he is in the midst of producing an animated reboot, though it is not known if this project is a movie intended for theaters, a VOD only release, or an entirely new TV show. Nonetheless, he has debuted the first images from the Untitled Spawn Reboot, giving us a first look at popular cop characters Sam and Twitch along with a city street outside a night club.
Todd McFarlane had this to say about the art, teasing a look at Spawn himself in the very near future:
At every convention and in every interview I do I am asked a couple of repetitive questions: "When is the new Spawn movie coming and when are we going to see more Animation like we did on HBO years ago?" (I also get a lot of 'when are you going to draw The Amazing Spider-Man for Marvel again?'...)For those of you that don't know, the original Spawn Animation was aired on HBO for three years and won a couple of Emmy Awards. Ever since it went off the air, fans have been bugging me to bring it back. Well, for your eyes only, here are some early images of a few key characters and a rough of a city street in black and white and in color.
If you all seem interested there is LOTS and LOTS more I can show you!!!!!! I may even put up some of the voice tracks for you.
Oh...and just wait until you see SPAWN himself!
It is not known when or where the Untitled Spawn Reboot will make its debut. The story follows an assassin who is double-crossed and murdered by his evil boss. He makes a deal with the devil and returns to earth to destroy the world with a deadly virus that will help start Armageddon and allow Hell to attack Heaven. Spawn is then forced to choose between Good & Evil.
