‘Spawn’ Reboot to take place in New York

Out of all the movies that currently exist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there are two that truly stand out for what I like to call a very special kind of ‘uniqueness’. They are Deadpool and Spawn. Why do I call them unique, you may ask? Well aside from the R-Rated comedy and humor that comes along with it, these ‘heroes’ are quite snarky and present a tone that is truly geared for adult audiences to enjoy.

We’ve been anticipating Deadpool 2 for quite some time, and now on top of that we can add a Spawn reboot!

Fans have been demanding another film with a take on the character ever since the cheesy 1997 movie first debut. I’m not going to lie, it was one of those cheesy superhero movies that I found myself watching over and over.

Though we don’t know that much in regards to the plot, we can finally confirm that the 2019 reboot will take place in the heart of New York City.

Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, who’s also directing the reboot, addressed the New York setting and explained (via Cinemablend):

There are different places that give incentives for you to come and shoot the movies there. So, we’re going to be looking at all those given that, you know we’re not going to have a big budget, so we’re going to want to stretch it as far as we can, right. And so, but, at the same time given that this world takes place in New York, we’re going to have to be in a place that can be somewhat convincing at times, especially for some exterior shots… though my guess, I’ll probably have to do a couple pick up shots actually here in New York City, but you know, so, you’re looking at places like Detroit, and Cleveland and, I’m Canadian, Toronto.

New York City was the same setting as the first movie, so it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise.

We will keep you posted on more Spawn details as they come!
