Mark Millar doesn’t make bad comics. But this is one I haven’t read of his that is gettinga big screen adaptation. And with the latest wave of movies told from the villain’s side, Nemesis is getting a green light with Tony Scott at the director’s chair.
Tony Scott is attached to direct the film adaptation of the graphic novel “Nemesis” for 20th Century Fox and Scott Free.
The comic follows a billionaire who moonlights as a super villain who picks one cop per year to torment and taunt before finally killing him.
I haven’t read the book, but I would suspect that a film version would be more of a “whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” type of twisted well meaning villain story.
I couldn’t see myself amused by a movie where a cop is tormented a full year just to get bumped off for the next guy to be harassed. There has to be a message or purpose to this villain, who might spare those who endure his tormenting in a sick method of making the police force stronger.
He looks like Batman, but all dressed in white and no ears on the cowl.
Should be interesting to see.
