|I still remember the studio boss saying how it was going to be such a great film for all the family when it first was announced. This is Millars rare decent comic book which is no way right for all the family. also what has happened to Angelina Jolie? From the look of the picture the wight of her head is threatening to snap her incredibly skinny neck. More|

|has been changed to much from the graphic novel, they shoulda kept it the same. millers version of it was artistic enough to not change it anymore. so yeah thanks HOLLYWOOD for ruining comic movies once again first daredevil, then punisher, then xmen...and the list goes on. And for anyone who thinks different, how can you call yourself a comic fan stories shouldnt be changed. More|

|another comic book turned into a movie which is probably going to be absolute shit. people say oh there are times the graphic novel went overboard? wtf NO IT DIDNT. theres no such thing as overboard in comics IT ADDS to the story. the fact that this movie is going to be toned down for an audience makes me not want to see it, its going to suck.

|Mr & Mrs Smith was hJolie's best film in ages and McAvoy can rock the action (see Children of Dune). Nightwatch was one of the most original looking films of recent years. I can't wait. More|

|Whoa! This looks good! I really like James Mcavoy and he looks stunning yet in fighting mode in this. I can't wait to see this, full of action and possiably a romance for James and Angelina. More|

|A visual rich and inventive move where a lonely office worker meets sexy, mysterious woman who introduces him to a secret society and leads to him learning superhuman capabilities - sound familiar. Here's hoping that the story is as well told and not like a couple of disappointing sequels I can think of. More|

|McAvoy is a great choice of lead, and he improves on the one thing that I didn't really like about the comic: the fact that Wesley looks exactly like Eminem. More|

It is Top Cow but the Superheroes in the story are riffs on DC characters sp;
Ah ok, that makes sense. Thanks.
I do believe Empire got a scoop. Every other news piece is linking back to here. More|

| I re-read this again recently. It's as dark as ever.
Good cast and good choice of director.
Be interesting to see how that translates to film, especially the last two pages.
But whoever it was who said it came out before The Matrix.....nope, sorry. It didn't.
It was 2003/2004 as I remember it. More|

| It is Top Cow but the Superheroes in the story are riffs on DC characters e.g. The guy who is their "Superman" ends up a crippled old man in a wheelchair who believes himself to only have played the character in films; and his arch nemesis is similar to Lex Luthor, with that gang of villains also resembling other enemies of Superman.
And if you don't get to the end of the comic (the last few pages) then you don't get the real message of the book

| RE: Empire haven't read wanted?|
| I am pretty sure it will be very toned down for a Hollywood audience.
I have read the graphic novel, and it is extremely dark, but at the same time tongue in cheek. There are times the graphic novel did go overboard though, with the supposed protangonist killing and raping at will.
Its about a world where the Supervillians defeat the Superheroes and control reality. Its a fun concept with plenty of potential.
I have seen they have changed alot just by looking at the pictures. More|

|Empire haven't read wanted?|
|Well be warned - it is some seriously sick shit. I didn't read the whole thing - why would I when glancing through the first issue made me feel ill? The Fox slaughters a whole restaurant of innocent people including children just to get Wes' attention. Later, Wes pops off more innocents with a sniper rifle while narrating something like 'you don't realise how much you hate other people until you see them squirming in your sights'. The premise is basically no-one would use superpowers to benefit More|

|Gusbuster, how the fuck does it sound like the Matrix? WOW an office worker becomes a superpowered killer. Very little similarity to the Matrix (and as the comic was released before the Matrix any similarities should be The Matrix sounds like this)
Cool pictures though, seriously looking forward to the trailer More|
