Jamie Foxx is officially the new Spawn.
Deadline reports the Academy Award–winning actor will portray the famed antihero in a film adaptation. Todd McFarlane, who created the character and later debuted him in 1992’s Spawn #1 will make his directional debut under Blumhouse Productions, the same company behind Get Out, Insidious, The Purge, and Paranormal Activity.

Are they still making it?
Execept he wont be saying shit
Sound like todd is going to fuck this up.
If I have to remind everybody remember the Last Blade movie was directed buy the creator of blade he decided he wanted to be a director and we all know what a s*** of a movie that was. I don't even consider that a blade movie Blade 1 Blade 2 where the best movies directed by the same person. that's the same s*** is going to happen here Todd McFarlane wants to be a director now and he's going to direct his spawn character right into the trash. And the proof of that was that the first 10 minutes of the last Blade where the best in the movie and they weren't directed by the Creator it was directed by the original director that directed Blade 1 and Blade 2 and he directed the first 10 minutes which were the best part in the movie The Rest was directed by the Creator of blade and the movie sucked buttermilk.
Jai White is the only spawn
Wooo thank you for adding my REbirth MxDs Hell Spawn cosplay and mask with Todd McFarlane!
Ive been waiting for this for 8 years
They should get Jack Black to play as The Violator. I could totally see him playing that role LOL
Can’t wait for the venom movie
I vote Michael B Jordan
WOOOOW REALLY SPAWN IS RUINED
Really Jamie Fox love Jamie but really WTH… not watching…
They gonna fuck up spawn with too much gore and over dramatizing scenes
Nooooooooooo just don't fck it up plz
I’m intrigued but worried. I love the spawn comics however the budget is what may kill the it’s potential to be a horrific and gory antihero story but $10-$12 million is it’s rumored budget and that is too fucking low. Jamie foxx can act his ass off in the movie but I can’t buy a cheap ass rubber suit
This is exciting… But also not…. Im SO down for a spawn rebot, wich makes me excited
Im also a Jamie Fox fan, but i REALLY dot see him in this roll… Idk, maye itll make it better if it actually works… I just dont see it though… But i am however optimistic
This bitch said Michael Jay white
Yo I called this
Cant fxking wait
NO… NO NO NO!
what happened with the animated series
Love Jamie but not as spawn…. Spawn will always be Micheal Jai White…. A character like spawn has a great physical presence Jamie is all of 5'7….. Unless the rest of the cast are midgets I can't see it!!
This was a dumb ass pick, so much more talented out there
But spawn a serious character
Blumhouse?? Spawn??… i have chills
This might be really good or really wack
Please have better cgi than venom.
We need blade but this will hold me over till then
Guess we'll have to wait another 20 years for a GREAT Spawn movie. I really have low expectations for this movie given its synopsis 🤦
Finally another one
Should have picked Idris Elba, imo.
Very excited for this movie
Michael Jai White did it best
Woooooahhh well that was random
I love the graphic novel. I love the anti-hero and the series as a whole and I adore Jamie Foxx but I don’t like him being cast as Al Simmons; I personally feel as lesser known character actor or even an more controversial method actor should’ve been cast….but that’s just me;
They better keep John Leguizamo as the fuckin clown cuz if they change recast him shit might be garbage.
Yes spawn deserves a remake !!
