    David Fincher Offers an Update on The Goon & Black Hole | Shock Till You Drop

    ComingSoon.net/SuperHeroHype had a rare opportunity to sit down with filmmaker David Fincher earlier today to talk about his fantastic new film The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and our questions about the amazing opening credits title sequences animated by Tim Miller at Blur in Venice led to us asking about his other animated project, producing Eric Powell’s animated movie based on his popular Dark Horse comic book character The Goon.





    "Eric’s been working on it and Tim’s been working on it, and Jeff (Fowler). People continue to work on it and refine stuff, but it’s hard for me because I’m in Sweden, so I can’t really make many production meetings, but the attempt is to in January really go out and try and figure out a price that makes sense," he said.

    He also mused, "I don’t know why you can spend $200 million on The incredibles but you can’t spend $50 million on The Goon,’or $130 million on Kung Fu Panda and $50 million on The Goon."

    Bringing up that comic adaptation reminded us that Fincher had been developing an adaptation of Charles Burns’ award-winning graphic novel Black Hole for a number of years. In fact we spoke to Burns himself about it three years ago, but apparently, Fincher has already moved past the original screenplay by Neil Gaiman and Roger Avery:

    "It’s a really great script by Dante Harper, so the hope is that will win out," he said. "It’s so weird. It’s so great, because it would be great to see. It’s a very tough… there’s make-up FX and digital FX that are expensive and to do it right, you gotta do it just right, because it has to challenge your idea of the human body."

    David Fincher Talks About What His SPIDER-MAN Movie Would Have Been Like

    Speaking with io9, Fincher revealed his big issue with the Spider-Man character and talked about what his iteration would have entailed:

    “My impression what Spider-Man could be is very different from what Sam [Raimi] did or what Sam wanted to do. I think the reason he directed that movie was because he wanted to do the Marvel comic superhero. I was never interested in the genesis story. I couldn’t get past a guy getting bit by a red and blue spider. It was just a problem… It was not something that I felt I could do straight-faced. I wanted to start with Gwen Stacy and the Green Goblin, and I wanted to kill Gwen Stacy.”

    And just how exactly would Fincher have set up Stacy’s death? With an elaborate, operatic title sequence of course:

    “The title sequence of the movie that I was going to do was going to be a ten minute — basically a music video, an opera, which was going to be the one shot that took you through the entire Peter Parker [backstory]. Bit by a radio active spider, the death of Uncle Ben, the loss of Mary Jane, and [then the movie] was going to begin with Peter meeting Gwen Stacy. It was a very different thing, it wasn’t the teenager story. It was much more of the guy who’s settled into being a freak.”
    Brilliant. Dispense with the oft-rehashed origin story and actually start getting into the meat of things. Hollywood, are you listening????

    Axel-In-Charge: One Year Behind Us, One Year Ahead - Comic Book Resources

    “I’m not only excited about “AvX,” but where it leaves the Marvel Universe — the creative opportunities it creates. There’s been a lot of speculation online as to whether this will lead to a reboot, and I’m not going to fuel that one way or another!”
    Oh, jesus...

    I should consider myself lucky that I only got community service for uploading Glitter.
