“The Losers” hits theaters this Friday, April 23, featuring a cast of actors with some history in the comic book movie world. Among them is Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who previously played The Comedian in Zack Snyder’s 2009 adaptation of “Watchmen,” Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ groundbreaking comic book series.
When MTV News caught up with him on the set of “The Losers,” Morgan explained why films based on comics are so appealing to him these days.
“I like the genre, but it seems to me that the best scripts coming out right now are based on graphic novels and comic books,” Morgan told MTV News. “The best characters and the smartest writing is coming from that world.”
“I don’t know if it’s just a trend or how long it’s going to last, but it’s obviously been going for a year or longer, and studios have really caught on to it now,” he added.
As for why his name keeps coming up in discussion of comic book movies, Morgan said he seems to fit a certain profile these days — and he’s not complaining about it.

I agree – comic books these days do have awesome writers – and intriguing storylines and characters. I also find that sometimes, comic books dare to go where some novels fear to tread.
