On Twitter, Savage Dragon creator Erik Larsen insisted the character would only stay in the comic book world.
Wild dragon Creator Erik Larsen has no interest in seeing his creation appear in a movie. On Twitter, he insisted that the character, currently released by Image Comics, will only remain in the comic book business.
“I’ve heard it before and I’m going to hear it again: ‘They should do a Wild dragon movie, “he wrote.” Honestly – and I know people mean that as a compliment – but I couldn’t give a fuck to see Wild dragon on the big screen. “
“Savage Dragon in the comics is MY character. He looks the way I want him to look. He acts the way I want him to. Every word is emphasized the way I wanted. Every gesture, every expression, everything – everything is as I imagined it, ”he continued.
I’ve heard it before and I’m going to hear it again: “They should make a Savage Dragon movie.”
Honestly – and I know people mean this as a compliment – but I couldn’t care less to see Savage Dragon on the big screen.

The writer-artist ruled out the comic being adapted as an animated series, although it aired as a cartoon for two seasons in 1995 on Cartoon Express in the United States. “If you like my work and you like Wild dragon – there is, and always will be, one place where you can find it. And it’s not on the big or small screen – it’s in print. It’s a comic, ”Larsen concluded.
The character, a large humanoid with green skin who made his debut in Graphic fantasy # 1 in 1982, is a crime-fighting cop with his super strength and quick heal factor. Wild dragon # 231, the next issue in the ongoing series, goes on sale February 7.
