Jonah Hex SDCC 09 Teaser Movie Poster

DC Comics - Jonah Hex Cover ArtworkDC Comics’ popular Western antihero Jonah Hex is finally getting the big screen treatment. Hex has gone through some crazy adventures over the years…he started out as an anything but typical Western bounty hunter, but was then unexpectedly thrown into a post-apocalyptic future where he became a sort of Mad Max wannabe. Even trading in his Confederate Army inspired wardrobe for a horribly cliché 80’s futuristic costume. Jonah Hex then returned to the past just in time to explore the weird and dark Wild West of the Vertigo Universe, DC Comics’ “adult oriented” imprint.

After a brief hiatus, Hex is now back in the DC Universe and starring in a popular comic book series written by Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti. He also made an all but too brief appearance in the DC cartoon Batman: The Brave and The Bold. Next up, Hex will be starring in his own live action motion picture starring Josh Brolin as Jonah Hex, John Malkovich as Quentin Turnbull and Megan Fox as Leila (Hex’s love interest).

Photos of Fox on the set of Jonah Hex is a ridiculously tight corset set the internet a blaze last month, and has given the DC Comics inspired movie an unexpected jolt of early publicity. Here’s hoping the photo above isn’t the potential summer blockbuster’s lone highlight. The Blot’s just hoping Fox doesn’t ruin the film with her incredibly bad acting. The less she says the better!

Jonah Hex is scheduled to hit theaters next summer on June 18, 2010.
