Back in January, reports started to come in that Rob Liefeld's series The Godyssey would be making its way to the big screen in a feature adaptation. Now it seems one of the characters from that series will be getting her own (unrelated) movie. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Haywire star Gina Carano has signed on to star in a film series based on the character Avengelyne.
Carano and Liefeld are said to be reworking the title into a starring vehicle for Carano in the vein of the "Underworld" franchise, featuring Carano as a fallen angel fighting off demons and monsters. Both Carano and Liefeld will be on hand at the San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday to sign posters featuring her likeness as the character.
Avengelyne first appeared in comics in May of 1995 and has gone on to appear in countless mini-series and crossovers with other characters.
