Welcome everyone to the Nexus of All Realities – A Man-Thing podcast!
Today on the program: Man-Thing (The 2005 Movie)
Today on the program I will be discussing the 2005 Brett Leonard directed loose adaptation of Man-Thing. And by “loose adaptation” I’m talking really, really loose. This is something I’ve been threatening to do for a while now and I figured I’d get it out of the way.
Spoilers: It is not a good movie. But I shall endeavor to find something interesting to say about it. It may be difficult.
This is one of those films that was released before the MCU when Marvel was still trying to test the waters and find a formula that would create the perfect comic book adaptation. They didn’t find it here.
But is there anything good to say about this movie? Does it come close to anything from the source material? Well give a listen and find out, or at least find out what I think about it. Thee might even be a musical surprise at the end!
I also give a little background on the making of the film, what the producer thought of it, and how it is generally received by the fans.
