My only question is which version of The Human Fly are we going to get? Because there are two. One was a super-villain that did battle with Spider-Man and the other was a good guy based on stuntman Rick Rojatt (although we’ve seen other sites that say Joe Ramacieri). I can guess it’s the good guy, but then again, a battle between Spidey and the Fly would be pretty cool.
A Human Fly comic, based on real-life stuntman Joe Ramacieri, was licensed and published by Marvel from 1977-1979. Over its 19-issue run and in various other Marvel comics, the Human Fly had run-ins with Spider-Man and Daredevil, among others in the Marvel stable. Alan Brewer and Steven Goldmann picked up the reverted rights on the property recently. Eisenberg-Fisher Productions, which is based on the Paramount lot, will executive produce the proposed indie, with financing said to be coming from private-equity sources. Goldmann is poised to direct. Brewer, along with James Reach, will produce. Tony Babinski, Cirque Du Soleil’s in-house historian, wrote the Montreal-based screenplay.
I’ve never read ‘The Human Fly’ so I can’t say for sure. My only thing is how this will work and quite frankly, haven’t we had enough comic book movies? I like comic book movies just like the next guy, but not every character deserves a movie, right? Tell me if I’m wrong in comments or on Twitter!
