spawn reboot Michael Jai White

Todd McFarlane has been talking about a Spawn reboot movie since at least 2007, and eventually, Blumhouse got involved – but nothing has materialized. Even after announcing that both Jamie Foxx and Jeremy Renner would both appear in the reboot, there’s been almost no real movement on the project. It’s gotten to the point where McFarlane’s Spawn reboot feels like a weird, sick joke – something he keeps talking about even though we all know it’ll never happen. Now, original Spawn star Michael Jai White has weighed in with the following message: “Okay, good luck with that!”

Venom criticism

Venom was a huge hit, but critics really did not like the movie. According to Todd McFarlane, one of the creators of the character, that’s not the movie’s fault. McFarlane says that movie critics are too old, and that they needed to unleash their inner 16-year-olds to truly enjoy the story of a giant goo monster who bites off heads. In summation, if all movie critics were 16, there would be no negative Venom criticism.
