When it comes to Marvel and DC, there’s no shortage of comic book TV content. Marvel thrives on Disney + and DC has great content from both The CW and HBO Max. In fact, this week will see the highly anticipated debut of Peacemaker, the follow-up led by John Cena of James Gunn The suicide squad. There are endless possibilities for future comic book content, and a writer has an idea. Jimmy Palmiotti has a long history with comics, and he recently took to Twitter to see if fans would be interested in a TV show based on the. Jonas Hex comic book he created with Justin Gray, Russ Heath and Jordi Bernet.
“Why doesn’t @wbpictures take our JONAH HEX DONE -IN-ONE stories that we wrote for the series [ 70] & not doing a weekly series for @hbomaxmovies is a mystery to me. Seriously, reduce the scar, focus on the post-war adventures, and hire us to consult with RT if you wish, âPalmiotti wrote. He added in the comments, âIt’s always good to remind people what they’re sitting on. Justin and I could easily adapt our own work to the form of a script. We both have scriptwriting experience. It would be fun. I mean, isn’t Yellowstone killing him now? “You can check out the post below:

Of course, if Warner Bros. was set to create a Jonah Hex series, it wouldn’t be the first time the character has been seen onscreen. Hex was played by Johnathon Schaech on both Legends of tomorrow and Batwoman. In 2010, long before Josh Brolin was Thanos or Cable, he starred in a DC Western comic book movie adaptation that follows the antihero / sniper / bounty hunter who managed to cheat the dead in a significant way. Jonas Hex did not receive top reviews, achieving a 12% review score and an audience rating of 20% on Rotten Tomatoes. The film also starred Megan Fox, who spoke to the Washington post last year about her performance in the film, claiming that she did better in the film than believed at the time.
âWhile I shouldn’t have been nominated for an Oscar for that, I’m definitely not bad at it,â Fox said. Fox admitted that she had recently watched Jonas Hex for the first time, and I felt the film was “decent”. It’s a far cry from her stance years ago when she advised fans that no one should ever see Jonas Hex.
