Watch: Kick Ass Teaser for Blur Studio's Animated The Goon!
One comic book adaptation we've been following for years is The Goon. Blur Studios, the animation house also working on David Fincher's Heavy Metal, has been developing this animated feature for quite a while. We featured a first look photo last March, as well as provided a few updates on its voice cast and status, but we've still been waiting to see any footage. That wait is over as MTV has debuted a totally kick ass 30-second teaser for The Goon to tease the upcoming Comic-Con panel on Friday night (where even more footage will be shown). The voices are Clancy Brown as the Goon and Paul Giamatti as sidekick Franky. Have fun!
Watch the short teaser trailer for Blur Studio's The Goon:
As far as we know, this still doesn't have a distributor or release date yet, so we're not sure when we'll see it.
The Goon is a comic book series created by Eric Powell in 1999 and published by Avatar Press. It follows the adventures of the Goon, a muscle-bound brawler who claims to be the primary enforcer for feared mobster Labrazio. The Goon (and his sidekick Franky) often get tied up in "other machinations," often in relation to the evil zombie gangs under the command of the Nameless Zombie Priest (ahh!). The series has a distinctly paranormal slant, with the average story concerning ghosts, ghouls, skunk-apes, extra-dimensional aliens, and mad scientists. We'll have more updates on The Goon for you from Comic-Con this week - stay tuned!
