Mania.com talked with Rick Remender about the book and the upcoming film starring Sam Worthington. “You know, there’s a mentality in Hollywood where they’re turning to comic books for their ideas now, because comic books are not made by committee.

Release date: TBA

Directed by Sam Raimi, release date: May 5th, 2011
