Pics From The Losers Movie Released

The movie based on the DC Comics series has finished filming.



Soon we will have another comic book adapted movie.  The Losers is a series from DC Comics that was loosely based off the Golden Age team with the same name.  The Losers is a group of CIA black ops who were betrayed and left for dead.  Now their only mission is to get revenge against those who set them up.  The movie stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Clay, Chris Evans as Jensen, Zoe Saldana as Aisha, Idris Elba as Roque and Jason Patric as Max, the 'bad' guy.
 
The movie currently has an April 9, 2010 release date.  Andy Diggle, the writer of the Vertigo series, posted a couple images via his Twitter account.  I think it's great that this movie is about to happen.  As much as I like the comic book movies, I really like seeing the non-superhero comic books get adapted.  This should be an interesting movie.

I loved this book. Hopefully this won't suck. Cast looks pretty tight.

correct 
 
this is an original comic "loosely" based off of DC's Losers, so loosely that Andy Diggle has stated (back in 2008 anyways when the Vertigo Encyclopedia was published and his 32 issue series long completed) he's never read a single issue of the original...

I've missed so much in comics. I really wanted to read the modern Losers. I also found the war time Losers very interesting. First Losers story I read was in the Losers Special Crisis tie-in. I wanted to read more but it turned out to be their last story. 
 
I was like "WHAT?" Don't know if there have been any stories with the WW II Losers since the CoIE (haven't found any) but I've heard good stuff about Diggle's Losers. Now there's a movie. It's too much to handle for one brain. Hopefully I'll be able to scrounge up some cash for back issues on Diggle's Losers. 
 
Plus Zoe Saldana and Jeffrey Dean Morgan looking good.

So is their arch nemesis the All-Winners Squad?

For those that haven't read the Losers comic I highly recommend it. It's really well written and has intriguing characters.
