I think Josh Brolin is an inspired choice for the character of JH.

P.S. somebody move this to the western section please.

Jonah Hex is Josey Wales before Josey Wales. This could be interesting.

So long as they stick with the feel of the original comics.
I really don't want JH tangeling with supernatural beings like in some of the newer stuff.

Stick with the whole "unluckiest guy in the west finds himself in odd but believable situations" and everything should be fine. Oh... and give it an R rating!

Well, if they stay true to the original comics, he's gonna get wounded a lot of times during the movie. Don't know how the audience will respond to that.

Hah, ''unluckiest guy in the west'', that's a good description of Jonah Hex.

I hope they leave the whole scarring of his face to be shown in flashback.
His origins aren't exactly the most exciting part of the series.

What was it, ''a lion ate his face while he was saving the chief'' ?

I'd have to read those comics again.

But I agree, or even better - don't even show it.

The Indians he grew up with did it to him after he killed one of the Chief's sons in self defense.

They used a hot poker stick I think.

Aha, right, I forgot all about that... Why the heck did I think a lion ate his face? (Nevermind.)

I'm now thinking of a classic ''in search for a treasure'' story.

So long as it doesn't resemble the script that was being kicked around town it's fine with me.

It will be interesting because in any case they have to make up a good villain, that is completely new to the audience. I don't recall him having a decent enemy throughout the (comic book) series.

They actually have very little to use besides his character, which might be a good thing.

All of the comics I've read he kills the villains off at the end but there is one recurring baddie named El Papagayo (when Sonny comes by I'll ask her to take a photo of the comic where he appears in so I can show you).
Mexican bandit leader with a parrot on his shoulder.
While I wouldn't want him to be the main villains he could be a good side villain.

I hope they keep Bat Lash out of the whole movie and lets pray a love interest shows up to get killed off.

As promised...






Papagayo should be treated like a secondary Bond villain.
Have a pre-credit sequence where P. puts Hex in Mortal danger then have him disappear until the final minutes (just after the climax) where Jonah can give him some good punishment.
Since the comics were a throwback to western serials (and always left Hex in danger by the last page) the movie should have a cliff hanger ending that still works as a decent closing.

Thanks FC! Afro

That's number 9 of the original series right? I'm definitely gonna have to read some JH comics before I watch the movie, the bad things is that there is so much of them. The three mini-series from the 90s were by far better than V1 and V2.
