Spawn producer Todd McFarlane is open for a crossover with Spider-Man and Venom.
McFarlane is the founder of Image Comics and the creator of Spawn. Before that, he worked for Marvel and made an impressive career in Spider-Man in the 90s, and co-produced Venom with David Michelin. While McFarlane has not worked with Marvel since the release of Image, what is happening in the industry right now is somewhat open to the future.
Right now, comic book stores across the country are closed, publishers face a lot of uncertainty, and the distribution side of the industry has also been hit hard. When things get back to the comic book business, Todd McFarlane and many others believe that bigger things may be needed to help attract readers. McFarlane believes that such a crossover can meet the requirements. What he said about it in a recent interview.
“For me, I’m more concerned about how it can have a lasting effect, but where are we today and we don’t know what’s going to happen on the other side of normality and even the comic, How does the industry look? So I was trying to ask myself if we needed some event book or stuff on the other side, not one or two, I think we got one of them. It needs stationary drums. ”
“Something as crazy as Spawn-Spidey [Venom], I don’t know, maybe. I never had a compelling reason to do it, but you know, if that’s part of it. That helps a little bit for the stability of our industry, then maybe Maybe I should go back to manual labor and do my part. We all have to be good soldiers somewhere on the line. So, yeah. We’ll see what it says.
The question is, will Marvel Comics be open to this?
Spider-Man and Venom are the two most important characters in their library. Spawn is, quite simply, one of the biggest comic book characters outside of the big two, Marvel and DC. With this in mind, a crossover can do great business, which will benefit everyone involved.
This is not the first major crossover that has been released recently.
Other writers in the industry have championed the idea of a Marvel/DC crossover to help get things started once the business starts. While these characters may be the themes surrounding most major movies and television shows, the books themselves don’t get as big as an audience. Fascinating event books may be what it takes to sustain the industry on the other side of this madness.
Meanwhile, Todd McFarlane has been working hard for the past few years to restart his R-rated spawn. McFarlane is set to direct the movie himself. He recently said that Joker’s success has opened new doors, which may eventually help bring the project to the ground.
