Fox To Pile Onto The Superhero Heap With ‘Malignant Man’

Monday, June 23 by
This guy DOES look pretty malignant.  

Fox hasn’t gotten QUITE as busy as some of the other studios with its superhero roster of films, but what it lacks in quantity, it might be going for in quality. Since Fox doesn’t have a Marvel or DC at its disposal, it’s going with the smaller, dare I say “grittier” adaptations of graphic novels.

Most recently, Fox has announced that it will be telling the story of Malignant Man, a dude who’s diagnosed with terminal cancer, only to find that the tumor is actually a parasite that gives him super powers. Fun for the whole family, no?

The film version will likely be directed by James Wan, who is currently hard at work on Fast & Furious 7.

If you’re excited about this project, you may want to take a breath, though. It’s currently not slated until 2017.
