Some of you might remember how much our man Jake loved BOOM! Studios’ Imagine Agents (here) comic book…

Well imagine how excited he is now that Batman and Birdman star Michael Keaton is attached to star in the big screen adaptation (he’s very excited, he’s been PM’ing me all day).

The movie will be produced by FOX, although no screenwriter is attached yet but with Keaton possibly set for Beetlejuice 2 later this year, we must say we’re loving that he’s back in the spotlight again.

Thank you, Birdman.

The comic was written by Brian Joines and illustrated by Bachan. Imaginary friends are often a rite of passage for those of us who are considered ‘loners’ in today’s society. They give us someone to play with, talk to, and talk about our problems with when no one else will listen. Eventually though, real friends are made, there are new adventures to be had, we grow up, and we move on leaving our imaginary friends behind us. The agents of I.M.A.G.I.N.E. give these long-forgotten creatures refuge after they’ve served their purpose in the world, but what happens when these imaginary beasts don’t accept this fate? Revolution…and a damn fun one at that!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
