Seth Rogen And Evan Goldberg Swear Invincible Film Will Be Better Than Comic

Goldberg says it'll be more dynamic.

The richest man in Kentucky Robert Kirkman's Invincible may be coming to an end with issue #144, but that's just the beginning for the movie adaptation of the comic. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are helming the film and are planning on making it better than the source material. Because if there's one thing Hollywood knows better than comics it's how to tell a long-form story.

"We are definitely telling the classic story of Invincible, and we are doing some directorial things that will make it more dynamic than just the straight-up story," Goldberg explained during a recent interview.

Somehow the two are planning on adapting the 144-issue series into a two-hour film, without changing much. Thankfully with the modern use of decompression in comics, there's only about one-hours worth of material in the entire series.

"We've come up with some conventions that I think will make it a more cinematic experience that fits in the timeframe more. But we're not reinventing the wheel here, we're not going to massively change Invincible. The core story of that comic and the core characters are what makes it great."

The final issue of Invincible by Kirkman and Ryan Ottley was released this week.
