Now it’s going to add another big name to the cast. New reports confirm Jeremy Renner will be joining the cast as Detective Twitch Williams, the one half of the private investigating duo Sam and Twitch. More on the story below.

Jamie Foxx Spawn Movie Header Image

At San Diego Comic-Con last summer, we found out that Todd McFarlane was going to direct a low-budget R-rated adaptation of his own comic book creation, Spawn, for Blumhouse Productions.

Now McFarlane has found a star for what will be his feature directorial debut. Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx has signed on to play Al Simmons, a Marine who is double-crossed and killed while working for the CIA, sending him to Hell. While there he makes a deal with an evil being to go back to Earth to see his wife, but ends up being sent back as something completely different, a hellspawn.

Todd McFarlane's Spawn

For fans of Spawn who have been anxiously awaiting word on a new movie, San Diego Comic-Con brings you a gift.

While hanging out on IMDb’s boat at the convention with Kevin Smith, creator Todd McFarlane had a big announcement: producer Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Productions are now developing a dark, R-rated Spawn movie. And because Blumhouse is known for doing things low-budget—with titles including the Paranormal Activity, Insidious, and Purge movies, and more recently Split and Get Out—McFarlane is going to direct the movie himself.

More below, including videos of McFarlane making the announcement and talking about some other stuff as well.

Daryl Dixon Walking Dead action figure banner

McFarlane Toys has created an insanely detailed Walking Dead Daryl Dixon Deluxe Action Figure, which will be available next month and is up for pre-order right now.

Norman Reedus, who plays the badass crossbow-wielding Daryl Dixon on the AMC hit television series The Walking Dead, posed for McFarlane Toys in a 3D printer for this highly-detailed 10-inch Daryl action figure, so it actually bears an uncanny likeness to the actor. The figure features Daryl in his angel wings stitched biker vest with removable poncho, hunting knife, and crossbow, all in a deluxe boxed packaging.

Check out photos of the Daryl Dixon action figure here below, and be sure to pre-order yours now! The item will be released on November 18, 2013.

Comic Review: Spawn #228

Spawn #228Spawn #228
Writer/Plot Todd McFarlane
Art by Szymon Kudranski
Color by FCO Plascencia
Lettering by Tom Orzechowski
Plot Jon Goff
Cover by Todd McFarlane
Editor: Todd McFarlane
Image Comics
Release Date: February 13, 2013
Cover Price: $2.99

Spawn #228 is the first Spawn comic I’ve read since 1997. After giving this issue a read, I’m thinking the next time I pick up an issue will be in 2097.

Writer Todd McFarlane starts off right by giving me a nice character breakdown and summary on what I’ve missed, and actually, these couple of paragraphs REALLY fill me in on what I’ve missed in the past sixteen years. Unfortunately, it seems like I didn’t miss a whole lot. There’s a new Spawn. He has a girlfriend. Or ex-girlfriend. And honestly, that’s about it. This issue tries really, really hard to make itself an enticing mystery, but the thing about mysteries is, on some level, they have to make sense to the reader. He tries to do his own version of a David Lynch type super hero book, but falls way off the mark. Everything he tries to set up, just kind of leaves the reader wondering “why?” and “What’s going on here?” The villain of this issue is the Clown, who shows up and talks to a sleeping woman. That’s about the only forward motion in the book.

Cover Price: $4.99

Say what you will about its creator, but Youngblood #75 is just balls out FUN! This is totally a 90’s comic set in modern times, and that’s exactly what it should be. Looking for fun? You found it!

Jim McLaughlin puts out another great issue of this classic Image series. I can’t tell you enough how much PURE fun this book is! It’s got all the hallmarks of the Youngblood series that we grew up with, only better. There’s TONS of action, snappy dialogue, great superhero stuff, and a little touch of modern day situations. Besides the main story, McLaughlin sneaks in a couple of really interesting subplots that are going to be pretty fantastic when they come to fruition.
