It was only a matter of time until renaissance man, Jamie Foxx, found his way back into a comic book adaptation.
Actor Jamie Foxx is cast as Spawn in the upcoming reboot from Todd McFarlane. This marks his second time being in a comic book movie. His first was as the villainous Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
McFarlane, the creator of the original Spawn comic, will write and direct the project, via his Blumhouse Productions.
The first Spawn comic came out in 1992 and a movie adaptation starring Michael Jai White in the title role came out in 1997. The character possesses superhuman speed and strength, and can also heal, teleport, and shapeshift.
There is no date yet for its release. Are you excited to see Jamie Foxx as Spawn or should Michael Jai White reprise his infamous role?
