Gina Carano Signs Up For A Comic Book Movie
Gina Carano, former MMA fighter and current rising star actress, has signed up for a comic book movie. Her name has been thrown out for every female role imaginable, and people have been campaigning hard for her to be Wonder Woman. Well the actress has finally found a role, and it comes in the form of Rob Liefeld‘s Avengelyne.
Liefeld and Carano have partnered up and will appear at Comic-Con this Saturday to meet the fans and sign posters that feature Carano as Avengelyne. The character first appeared in 1995, and the stories focused on a fallen angel who had to find and protect “the one.” Avengelyne had to watch over “the one” because they held the key to saving mankind from demons and the like. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Carano and Liefeld are reworking the character to make a movie Carano can star in. It will have franchise potential of course. According to the site, the movie will be in the vein of Underworld, with its supernatural elements and lead female butt kicker. Liefeld and Carano will start the search for next week for a writer or possibly a writer-director to adapt the film.
This is the second big movie announced in as many weeks based on Rob Liefeld’s comic creations. Jefff Wadlow signed up to work on the X-Force movie, and now Liefeld will be looking for someone to work on Avengelyne. I wouldn’t be surprised if we hear about another Liefeld property getting the movie treatment before long.What do you think about Carano taking on Avengelyne?
UPDATE: Rob Liefeld took to his Instagram account to show off the poster he and Carano will be signing at Comic-Con.
