Jonah Hex movie News - Fassbender photo

I nabbed this photo from Get The Big Picture and shows Michael Fassbender in his tattoo makeup:
This character, for the folks who have never read the books, does not appear in any Jonah Hex book.

The the incredible multitude of fabulous characters that ARE in the books, why do they need to invent new ones? Heck, I'd rather have Mei Ling than Megan Fox, and I don't even LIKE Mei Ling!

Crab, crab, crab.

I foresee slow motion explosions and lots of heavy metal rock music.

His tattoo is very much in the style of a Maori Tā moko

As it says there ones on lips and chins are more usually worn by women, with men's covering the full face.

Perhaps the character has been to New Zealand - the Land Wars there occurred between 1845 to 1872, and the Otago NZ gold rush was during the 1860s, so a man handy with a gun might have found something to do there in about the time Jonah was around - I've always thoughtthat if the current writers want to send Jonah off on a international trip as MF sometimes did New Zealand could be a good choice...

The film takes place in 1872, so that is a possibility. This reminds me of the one of the characters in the film Moby Dick.
