Introducing a bold new direction for SPAWN, as creator TODD McFARLANE hands the reins over to BRIAN WOOD (Star Wars, X-Men, DMZ) and JONBOY (Marvel Adventures, Araña). It all starts right here, and continues next month in Spawn #251! NEW TEAM! NEW DIRECTION! The return of Al Simmons, and the start of a brand new era for SPAWN! No one quite knows where Al’s been all this time, but it’s clear he’s come back a changed man. Wiser, stronger, and with the memories from an experience that’s he’s still struggling to understand. Tucked away in a crime-ridden corner of New York City, he’s beginning to forge new alliances, preparing defenses, and testing out his newly acquired powers… because there’s a battle coming, and it’s something that makes the Heaven/Hell thing seem like a petty squabble. So just who did Al piss off so badly while he was away?

Paul Jenkins has replaced Brian Wood to be the next writer of SPAWN. Comics veteran Jenkins will be joining artist Jonboy Meyers starting with SPAWN: RESURRECTION, before the team takes over the regular series with SPAWN #251!

The long-gestating Spawn reboot is finally back on track with a new screenwriter in place. Brian Tucker, best known for penning the 2013 crime thriller Broken City with Russell Crowe and Mark Wahlberg, has reportedly signed on to write the script for the live-action Spawn movie. The creator of the comic and character, Todd McFarlane, is also attached as director. Jason Blum will produce for Blumhouse alongside McFarlane with Carla Hacken executive producing.

This incarnation of Spawn has been in development since 2017, but for various reasons, production just can’t seem to get started. It had previously been reported that Jamie Foxx would star as the titular vigilante with Jeremy Renner in a supporting role as a detective, though it’s not clear if they’re still involved now that several years have passed. The actors had originally agreed to get on board based on the initial script by McFarlane, but they might be re-approached once the new screenplay is finished.
