And the comic book heroes just keep coming to the cinema!
The next hero to be transformed from the comics to film will be Hercules. And, no, the TV version, Kevin Sorbo, won't be reprising his role from the '90s show.
The flick will be directed by Peter Berg, who also directed Hancock and will be based on the five-issue comicbook series by Steve Moore.
The movie, which will be called Hercules: The Thracian Wars, is said to stay true to the comicbook.
Producer Barry Levine says, "What resonated for them was that this was character driven, about a character who’s more man than god, with conflicts and redemption."
We not sure we'd classify Hercules in the same category as Superman, Batman, and Spiderman. He just seems more mythical to us.
Will U go watch the new Hercules flick?
