With Marvel and DC doing their best to bring their massive superhero line-ups to life, you knew it was only a matter of time before the other companies did the same. According to Todd McFarlane, a movie reboot of his character Spawn may be happening really soon:

“Right now, Marvel comics is owned by Disney. And DC Comic Books is owned by Warner Brothers. What that means is neither one of those companies is going to let any of their characters outside of their company. So here’s what’s happening: Universal, Paramount, Sony, and FOX and a lot of other smaller studios are looking for content. And they can’t have a Marvel or DC character – which means they are now knocking on our door.”

He also went on to say:

“We have 17 books that are currently optioned in Hollywood.”

So, are you up for another take on Spawn? Let us knwo!
