Watchman Director Bringing MAGE Comic to Big Screen

Watchmen producer Lloyd Levin has acquired the film rights to Matt Wagner’s epic comic book MAGE.

Watchmen producer Lloyd Levin is looking to give another epic comic book series the big-screen treatment. According to Variety, Levin has acquired the rights to Matt Wagner’s MAGE- a reinterpretation of the King Arthur story where the main character, Kevin Matchstick, is essentially a stand-in for Wagner himself.

The Mage series has two volumes released so far, each consisting of 15 issues. Levin plans on adapting the first volume, The Hero Discovered but there’s no mention of whether he also owns the rights to the subsequent volume The Hero Defined or the planned final volume The Hero Denied.

I love this series as much as you can love a series that is years upon years in the making. I am hopeful this all works-out and we get to see it on the big screen.  Are you excited to see the comic become a movie?
