Existence in Subtle Formalities
Day 6-  Favorite Comic Book Movie

Spawn (1997)

The only way to describe this Movie is ‘ahead of it’s time’. The story is so dark that to make this as close to rated R as possible is what I can tell was done. Michael Jai White is perfect as the titular role showing as much emotion towards heart and vengeance. John Leguizamo is epic as ‘Clown’ giving a very comedic and psychotic performance. This movie would have no place in comic book movies today, although if it were to find it’s place in Nolan brought up world it may work. But I think that because Spawn is a black man, and also an anti-hero with the religious tones makes people hesitant to want to see such a take. I love takes on heaven and hell because it’s creative to see what people perceive. I know a remake is coming and I’ll be there opening to see whats up with someone like Idris Elba leading hells army
