Wanted Comic Review & Movie Preview
* First off I’d like to thank Mr.C for lending me the comics to begin with. You inspired this entry.
I recently saw a trailer for “Wanted” while I was waiting for I AM LEGEND and to be honest the movie didn’t strike me as anything special. I figured it would just be another average shoot’ em up movie. However a co-worker of mine lent me the Wanted Comic series and now my perspective has changed. Wanted could actually kick some serious ass. The comic was created by an awesome team including, Mark Millar, JG Jones and Paul Mounts. They are a couple of the most talented people in the comic book industry.
The comic evolves around Wesley Gibson: an average guy leading an average life. One fateful day he finds out that his father was a legendary criminal in a secret society of Super Villains. Wesley is eventually recruited into the organization and follows in the footsteps of his old man. The comic is really GRAPHIC and there is a lot of sex, violence & mayhem.
Due to the graphic nature of the comic, I highly doubt the movie will be following it too closely. Although I really hope it does. In the comic, Villains win, Wesley becomes a super villain, and Mr. Wesley kicks ASS. He steals from the poor, murders innocent people and pillages unsuspecting citizens.
Although this sounds horrid it’s an interesting twist from the do-gooder norm.
The comic is GREAT & the movie has potentials to be AWESOME.
Keep your eyes open.
Check out this trailer I made!
