'Spawn' new animated series in the works

By
Spawn is to feature in a brand new animated show, the character's creator Todd McFarlane has revealed.

The Image Comics co-founder claims that the new series will be vastly superior to the HBO cartoon that ran between 1997 and 1999.

"We have 90 minutes all set and ready to go, other than sending it to an animation house," he told MTV.

"We've done all the voice recordings, we've done all the backgrounds, so the technology is way better than it was a decade ago; there are some spectacular things we can do now that we weren't able to when we were on HBO."

McFarlane also offered a status update on the proposed Spawn movie reboot, claiming that an "Academy Award-winning actor" is attached to the project but work on the script remains ongoing.

The Spawn comic book was adapted for cinema in 1997 with Michael Jai White in the lead role, but the film was widely panned by critics.
