Today’s comics movie casting news
In addition to the news about Lionsgate acquiring distribution rights to Frank Miller’s film version of The Spirit, we wanted to pass along a couple of casting notes:
Thomas Jane tells Ain’t It Cool News (in a very strange email) that he’s dropped out of the sequel to The Punisher, said to be darker and grittier than the original, if such a thing is possible.
And Slice of SciFi is reporting that Angel and Bones star David Boreanaz has auditioned for the title role in Marvel’s upcoming flick based on the Sub-Mariner comics. Can a Namor "comiquette" be far behind (pun intended)?
