'Witchblade' the popular Comic Book published by Top Crow is going to be made into a live action movie! This is exciting news to a huge following of people. The comic has sold over a 100 million copies worldwide. The comic book had already been made into a TV series that lasted 2 seasons, and in my opinion wasn't really that good. I think it could have been much better.
The comicbook introduced the Witchblade mythology, which centers on an ornate jewel-encrusted gauntlet that gives extraordinary powers to the wearer, a specially chosen female from each generation.
Production companies involved are Platinum Studios, Top Cow Prods. and Arclight Films. Producers involved include Marc Silvestri, Matt Hawkins, Gary Hamilton, Nigel Odell, Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, and Steve Squillante. Arclight CEO Gary Hamilton says:
"This property is the cornerstone of our upcoming production and sales slate, we hope to be able to start production in September."
With the success of Iron Man I think we are going to see many more comic books being turned into movies. I just hope the producers and creative people involved understand that after seeing how amazing comic book movies can be, the audience is not going to settle for anymore films like 'Electra' 'Catwoman' and 'Daredevil'. 'Witchblade' could easily be turned into "that kind" of movie. Hopefully not. I want to see something amazing! We know it has the potential, because they have a great story and characters to work with. We'll see who they bring on board to direct before we start making judgments. What do you Think?
