Robert Kirkman is probably most recognized for creating The Walking Dead comic, and Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg — the guys behind Preacher — want to work on another one of Kirkman's comics, Invincible.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, both Rogen and Goldberg are attached to write, direct, and produce the movie. Kirkman himself is also set to produce the movie, and he has this to say about the director duo:

"For nearly a decade I've had to endure the ‘what about Invincible?' question as fans have watched The Walking Dead grow into the multi-media monstrosity it has become over the years. The answer was always that we were waiting for the right team to partner with. That team has arrived! The esteemed misters Goldberg and Rogen have proven themselves to be top-notch directors with a keen collective eye for stunning visuals after slumming it by writing hit after juggernaut hit."

Rogen and Goldberg have actually written for a superhero movie before; that movie being the box office disaster that was 2011's The Green Hornet starring Rogen himself. It's been six years since then, and the two have made up for their geek-cred by delivering a faithful adaptation of the comic Preacher.

No official release date has been set for Invincible, so fans should just keep their ears on the ground for more news on the movie.

Mark Grayson is teenage superhero Invincible. He was a normal high school senior with a normal part-time job and otherwise normal life, except his father Nolan is the superhero Omni-Man, the most powerful superhero on the planet. At the age of 17, Mark begins to display superpowers, which come from his father being a member of the Viltrumite race, who, according to Nolan, pioneer the galaxy on a mission of benevolence and enlightenment. As Invincible, Mark begins working as a superhero, with his father acting as his mentor, and meeting other heroes. — Image Comics
