One of the biggest deal-breaking features of movies and TV shows nowadays that people despise is when the creators/directors/showrunners lighten up the atmosphere of the feature(which happens a lot in DC and Marvel productions). Spawn, however, is not going to be subject to that kind of treatment.

Audiences who want a fresh experience need not worry, as the upcoming Spawn movie looks pretty promising. It’ll be produced by creator Todd McFarlane who has been doing work on it for quite some time now.

The movie’s script is complete, according to McFarlane (who first completed it but it will now be rewritten by Brian Tucker), and joining him to make the movie will be Scott Silver, Malcolm Spellman, and Matthew Nixon- the first two having already written for Joker and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier respectively.

It will also have Django Unchained star Jamie Foxx playing the role of Spawn, who will be joined by Jeremy Renner aka Marvel’s Hawkeye in the role of Twitch. There’s no update on who else will be added to the cast, maybe an ensemble? But Foxx’s presence alone makes the movie worth a watch.
