Before he was the Animal Man you know in DC COMICS-THE NEW 52, Buddy Baker starred in an independent movie. THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER has your exclusive first look at this film, as shown in ANIMAL MAN #6. “This issue is a bit different in that it focuses in the ‘indie film’ that part-time superhero, part-time actor, full-time Dad, Buddy Baker made before all of this trouble began,” series writer Jeff Lemire told them. “The character that Buddy plays in the ‘film’ is a washed up superhero who has lost almost all connection to his own wife and son. It is very much a mirror reflecting Buddy's darkest fears back on him. The film is a metaphor for what he may become if things don't turn out right.” Head over to THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER to read the full interview with Lemire and to check out their exclusive preview of ANIMAL MAN #6, in stores tomorrow.
