8 Comic Book Film Adaptations You Didn't Know Were In Development

It's not just Marvel and DC.

There's so much news these days about the major comic book films that eventually it all just becomes a blur that people barely pay any attention to. New trailer. New casting announcement. New fan favourite character confirmed to be making an appearance just so that fans can go crazy. Sequel announced. Franchise consisting of multiple films announced. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. It's so intense that you may not even know that apart from all the huge Marvel and DC films, there are also a ton of smaller comic based films out there; they're being made, they just aren't being plastered all over the news 24/7. So if you like comic book films but fancy a change of pace after hearing about the same thing over and over again, then step right up. From manga to American comics, here are some of the most exiciting, little known graphic novel adaptations coming your way.

8. Spawn

Since the first film adaptation of Todd MacFarlane€™s demonic superhero hit the big screen nearly two decades ago, fans have been hoping for a reboot which actually does the character right rather than being yet another PG-13 snoozefest. The series follows Al Simmons, a former CIA agents who is killed in action and resurrected as a super powered demon. Rather than leading the armies of Hell, as was originally planned, he instead opts to protect humanity from both the forces of darkness. It's often cited as one of the best original comic series of the '90s, due to its darker, more twisted take on superhero traits. MacFarlane has constantly stated that he€™s trying to get a reboot off the ground, and that it will made on a shoestring budget with an R-rating in mind. So far, nothing definitive has materialised, but he recently stated that the script has been completed, so there€™s a chance that this could finally go into production soon.
