Forget Sharktopus. The biggest monsters in sci-fi right now might just be ... lawyers. Because according to Len Wein, co-creator of Wolverine, Storm, Swamp Thing and other comic-book characters, they're all that stand between us and a big-budget, CGI Swamp Thing movie that Hollywood is just dying to make.

Catching up with Wein, movieweb recently asked him whether there's a film future for the character.

"There is a rights problem which I don't understand because I'm not a lawyer," said Wein. "We desperately want to make a new Swamp Thing movie. I've written a screenplay, Joel Silver's gung-ho to make it, to do it right, big budget, CG, the whole dance. I know Akiva Goldsman wants to take my script and rewrite that and do something with it. We want to do a Swamp Thing movie. Once we can figure out the rights problem, we will."

What do you think? Are you up for Swamp Thing done right?
