According to the comics, Spawn is a CIA operative-turned-Hellspawn who receives a second chance to live on earth as a Hellspawn warrior. He posses superhuman strength, speed, and the ability to teleport, shapeshift and heal.

The role will mark Jamie Foxx's return to playing comic book characters. The actor has previously played supervillain Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which starred Andrew Garfield in the titular role. 

Jamie will be next seen playing the character of Little John in the upcoming film Robin Hood: Origins.
