Perhaps there is some chance that David Tennant will be in a movie adaptation of a comic book. According to the latest issue of Total Film Magazine, there is Hollywood interest in turning the comic book series America’s Got Powers into a movie.

America’s Got Powers is a six issue miniseries created UK TV presenter and chat show host Jonathan Ross and Marvel Comics artist Bryan Hitch (Fantastic Four, Stormwatch). The series features a character based on the image of David Tennant. America’s Got Powers tells the story of the aftermath of an event in San Francisco when a mysterious stone gave superpowers to a number of newborn babies. Years later, the babies are now teens and are battling one another in a brutal TV show. The David Tennant look-a-like, Professor Colin Syell, is the dark Simon Cowell-type figure behind the show.

Bryan Hitch was asked by Total Film Magazine:

TFM: Has there been any interest from Hollywood in your creator owned book, America’s Got Powers with Jonathan Ross?

Hitch: Yup, there has been and stuff is moving very nicely thank you!

We have our fingers crossed for both the movie adaptation and a certain actor that might resemble Professor Colin Syell.

Thanks to Comic Book Movie for the Heads Up.
