Although he’s been rumored to be attached to several, Johnny Depp has yet to actually star in a superhero comic book movie — yes, yes, he did star in FROM HELL, but that was long before it was fashionable. He’s also been attached to some in development, like REX MUNDI. In an interview with Geoff Boucher, Depp reveals that he outgrew comics at an early age, preferring the rock ‘n’ roll thing (i.e. girls.) However before he moved on, he did become attached to Prince Namor.
Namor is great. There was this strange double edge to the guy. And there was also something about living underwater that I liked a lot.
As excuse to find pictures of Namor (by Marko Djurdjevic) and Johnny Depp? Why not.
