‘Red Sonja’ Film Adaptation Put On Hold Amid Bryan Singer Controversy

Bryan Singer

For reasons beyond my (or anyone’s for that matter) understanding, Millennium Films hired Bryan Singer to direct a film adaptation of the Red Sonja even though the filmmaker has a reputation for poor on-set behavior and has been surrounded by a myriad of sexual assault allegations.

Though many have tried to take the pages of the comic book to the big screen, Singer’s hiring was as close as it got to getting the project off the ground. While the director has been quick to deny the sexual assault allegations, guilds and societies have made an effort to distance themselves from him. This includes the people behind the Oscar-nominated Bohemian Rhapsody, the Queen biopic from which Singer was fired.

Now it looks like enough is enough, as Millennium has put Red Sonja on hold. More on the report here below.

Red Sonja #100 review

Bryan Singer is no stranger to scandals and poor on-set behavior, and yet, the guy still keeps getting offers to direct films. Singer was recently fired from Bohemian Rhapsody after reports of him walking off set started to surface. And despite his reported unprofessionalism, it looks like he is getting another chance to direct a film. New reports say that Singer has signed on to helm a big-screen adaptation of Red Sonja for Millennium. More on the story below.

Red Sonja/Conan #1

Letters by Simon Bowland
Covers by Alex Ross, Ed Benes and Dinei Ribeiro, Roberto Castro and Dinei Ribeiro
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: August 5, 2015
Cover Price: $3.99

I love all things Conan. This is an indisputable fact, my friends will testify to it. That is, until this particular comic was delivered to me. I thoroughly enjoyed the Dark Horse led Conan/Red Sonja miniseries that preceded this Dynamite attempt. But Red Sonja/Conan #1 seemed…unnatural, for lack of a better word. Or maybe I’m critiquing it overmuch.

Red Sonja: 1973 is a great anthology book featuring a stellar line-up of creators celebrating the 42nd birthday of the character! Sure, the book has some great writers and fantastic artists, but is it any good? Yeah, I think you all ready know the answer, but let me tell you what I thought of it…

Swords of Sorrow #1

Swords of Sorrow #1
Written by Gail Simone
Illustrated by Sergio Davila
Colored by Jorge Sutil
Letters by Erica Schultz
Edited by Hannah Elder
Covers by J. Scotty Campbell & Nei Ruffino, Jenny Frison, Emanuela Lupacchino & Ivan Nunes, Robert Hack, Joyce Chin & Ivan Nunes, Tula Lotay, Nei Ruffino, and Cedric Poulat
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: May 6, 2015
Cover Price: $3.99

Swords of Sorrow #1 is many things: a really fun story, even though it’s not supposed to be; a great comic to look at. But, beyond that, this book is special because it stars an all-female cast of heroes. As a man, I almost didn’t want to review this, but then I thought “It doesn’t matter if the book stars women, the only thing that matters is if it’s good or not.” So, is it? Let’s find out…

Conan/Red Sonja #4 review
Conan/Red Sonja #4
Written by Gail Simone & Jim Zub
Pencils by Randy Green
Inks by Rick Ketcham
Colors by Dave Stewart
Letters by Richard Starkings & Comicraft
Cover art by Dan Panosian
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: April 29, 2015
Cover Price: $3.99

Conan/Red Sonja #4 is the perfect ending to what, in my opinion, was the perfect example of a inter-company crossover. For the past three issues, two of fantasy’s most popular characters have fought, loved, and been comrades in arms. Now, with the fate of the entire universe at stake, can even they protect it?

Writers Gail Simone and Jim Zub continue their excellent tale of Conan and Red Sonja. What I’ve loved most about this series, and this issue in particular, is that it was more of a team-up than a crossover, and that both characters get equal billing and “page-time.” Each has their share of story to carry and each has their own weight to pull when it comes to the overall adventure. This issue is a fitting end to the series. I won’t spoil the ending, but it’s perfect.

Conan Red Sonja #3 review

Conan Red/Sonja #3

Letters by Richard Starkings & Comicraft

Cover art by Dan Panosian
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: March 25, 2015
Cover Price: $3.99

Conan/Red Sonja #3 takes a big swerve from the first two issues of this series, and it’s a total surprise for the reader. We’re used to the past two issues that skipped around during different times of the lives of Conan and Red Sonja, and it was great and fun, but now that the narrative has changed, is it still good? Let me tell you what I think…

Altered States: Red Sonja review

Altered States: Red Sonja
Written by Brandon Jerwa
Illustrated by Juanan Ramirez
Colored by Rohvel Yumul
Letters by Marshall Dillon
Cover art by Billy Tan
Cover colors by Alex Guimaraes
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: March 11, 2015
Cover Price: $3.99

Altered States takes some of Dynamite Entertainment’s well established characters and transports them into situation that they’re not used to. Take this one-shot comic, Altered States: Red Sonja, for example. Red Sonja gets whisked away from a battle in ancient times to a museum desk job in the heart of New York City. Sort of like an Elseworlds title, but different.
