Matthew Vaughn is adapting the comic book “The Golden Age” by Jonathan Ross and Tommy Lee Edwards, and he wants some fucking starpower to do it. The comic book is about a group of retired superheroes who have to once again don the cloak to help out their grandkids when their own children fuck up the world, and Vaughn wants some big boppers to fill the roles. Atop his wishlist are “Clint Eastwood, Jack Nicholson, and Warren Beatty.”
Thoughts? Me? Meh. I’ve seen this concept done to death in the funny books themselves, and Watchmen already took a cinematic dump on the motif.
