NYCC: Valiant’s Shadowman Movie Adaptation!

Interesting news coming in from New York Comic Con 2012. Apparently Valiant’s new Shadowman series, not released yet (making it’s debut in November) I may add is already being worked into a movie script. Ambitious!

Quickly Valiant!

Valiant Entertainment and “The Mummy” producer Sean Daniel have hired comics writer and “Babylon 5” creator J. Michael Straczynski to pen a live-action adaptation of the publisher’s newly revived “Shadowman” series, Deadline reports.

Created in 1992 by Jim Shooter, Steve Englehart, David Lapham and Bob Layton, “Shadowman” centers on Jack Boniface, a man who must embrace the legacy he was born into and protect New Orleans from the forces of darkness that want to claim the city as their own. The relaunched title, by Justin Jordan and Patrick Zircher, debuts next month.

Interesting! Longtime fans of the Shadowman franchise will remember that during the heights of Shadowman’s popularity under acclaim it was rumored to be in production with such names as Ice Cube and DMX rumored attached. Would you be interested in a new Blacksuperhero Movie? Is Shadowman what we want?
