In a recent appearance on The Rick & Cutter Show,  former AEW World Champion Chris Jericho discussed his plans for his Painmaker character that he debuted in NJPW and later brought to AEW.

The character was eventually inducted into the comic book medium by Jericho himself and it appears that The Lionheart wishes to see Painmaker in a movie role.


You can check out a highlight from the podcast below:

On the trajectory he envisions for the Painmaker persona: “I just put out a comic book for a character that I played in Japan called the Painmaker. It’s a wrestling character that I made a comic book character with the end game being a Painmaker movie because I’m sick of Batman, Superman, Spider-Man movies. Sooner or later, someone has to create a new superhero, so I created this Painmaker character. ‘You want to do a movie?’ Yeah, I’m going to do a movie. What do you think about that? You just get the confidence to know there is always a way to make things work if you believe in it and want to do it, then go do it. Don’t make excuses why it’s not going to happen, find out the reasons how you can make it work and then make it go happen.”
