What’s it all about?
What happens next?
Is it any good?
Marvel Zombies is excellent, as long as you love gore and superheroes. It comes across as both a parody of modern comic books and a legitimate splatter zombie tale. Marvel Zombies has a great cult following and, in pure horror tradition, has spawned a good deal of sequels.
Is there a movie?
Nope. There are rumors of an animated movie, but when you consider just how violent Marvel Zombies is – it does not seem likely. Don’t forget that Marvel are now a division of Disney, and mixing their classic characters with ultra-violence may not be the way to go. Pity.
