RODIONOFF TALKS MAN-THING

From Comic Book Resources' interview with 'Man-Thing' scribe Hans Rodionoff:

Writing 'Man-Thing' could prove challenging to some writers, because unlike DC Comics' 'Swamp Thing' Marvel's swamp monster can not talk. This wasn't a problem for Rodionoff. 'Actually, I think that's what makes Man-Thing a better character to adapt for the big screen than Swamp Thing,' said Rodinoff. 'While it might work well in comics, I think talking swamp monsters wind up being pretty ludicrous on screen, as proven by both 'Swamp Thing' movies. When creatures vocalize, they lose all of their power. How do you make a whole movie where the main character doesn't speak? The way I got around that was by shifting the focus of the story to the human characters. If the Man-Thing was the protagonist of the movie, then yeah, I could see that being a pretty difficult task. But as it is, the Man-Thing is a malignant force of nature. The shark didn't talk in Jaws. I approached the Man-Thing in a similar way.'

Rodionoff was reluctant to reveal any plot details about 'Man-Thing.' 'Well, it's a horror film, so I don't want to give too much away prematurely because I feel like that will ruin it. The basic idea is... cue the ominous music... Deep in the dark, brackish waters of the Louisiana swamp, something has been awakened. Something terrible,' he told CBR News. He also said that unlike past Marvel films, 'Man-Thing' is not exactly an origin story.
