Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston’s Black Hammer may be getting a Film and TV show

Legendary Entertainment has picked up Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston’s Black Hammer. It is a brilliant comic, first published by Dark Horse in 2016.

Once they were heroes, but the age of heroes has long since passed. Banished from existence by a multiversal crisis, the old champions of Spiral City – Abraham Slam, Golden Gail, Colonel Weird, Madame Dragonfly, and Barbalien – now lead simple lives in an idyllic, timeless farming village from which there is no escape! But as they employ all of their super abilities to free themselves from this strange purgatory, a mysterious stranger works to bring them back into action for one last adventure!

“With our development team, one of our big initiatives was to bring in a superhero universe,” said Nick Pepper, the president of Legendary Television Studios. “We were lucky enough that this was available.”

Legendary also say that “in Black Hammer, the characters come first, and the superhero aspects become the canvas to tell their stories.”

It is a beautiful, bizarre tale of weird and tragic characters. I picked up Volume 1 a few months ago and loved it. Lemire will serve as an executive producer with Dean Ormston, the co-creator and illustrator of the comic series

Personally, I feel it would work best as a TV show, but I am happy to see it in any incarnation.

The question remains, who would you cast to play the likes of Golden Gail, Barbalien, Colonel Weird, Abraham Slam and the rest?
