Bananaman Teaser Poster Released Online


Exact details on the production are still scarce, but DC Thomson is moving ahead with their planned Bananaman movie, and have released the first teaser poster, which you can see above via CBM and IMP Awards. Superhero parody Bananaman is an English comic book character memorable to American audiences for his animated shorts in the '80s (the 40 Bananaman episodes aired in the United States on the Nickelodeon cable network as a companion piece to Dangermouse). News broke earlier this month that he was getting his own feature film. The character, who still appears sporadically in The Beano and the recently-cancelled Dandy comics, is a play on characters like Marvelman and Captain Marvel; he's a child who grows to an adult and gains super powers after eating a banana. Little in the way of details is yet known, although the film has an official website and a studio has also got it on the production slate.
