In a statement from Skybound Entertainment, this is what Kirkman has to say about the announcement:

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. Invincible’s surprising, edgy, shocking, and oftentimes blood-soaked story couldn’t be in more capable hands. With the team of Rogen, Goldberg and Universal, I’m very confident this will be another superhero movie, in a long line of superhero movies that continues to prove that it’s a viable, thrilling genre that will keep people coming to the cinema for years to come.

Invincible is the second longest running independent comic book by Robert Kirkman and artist Cory Walker that dates back in 2003. This tells the story of Mark Grayson, an average student and son of the greatest superhero that has walked on the face of the universe, Omni-Man. Once he discovered his newfound powers, he chose to use them to save the world as Invincible. The comic is currently on its 133rd issue that will end after its 12 issue story arc in #144. A definite release or production date, and cast members are yet to be confirmed.
