The unique hairdo that he reveals is thought by most who’ve seen it to be a reference to Tor Cyan, a character spun off of Rogue Trooper, one of 2000 AD‘s signature characters. Before Watchmen‘s Dave Gibbons was drawing Dr. Manhattan, he was giving life to this blue-skinned muscleman, a genetically engineered soldier fighting a planetary civil war on a world where the atmosphere has long since become toxic.
Mohawked Tor Cyan is a medical shuttle driver, who ultimately discovers he has a connection to the Rogue Troopers–something you’d think the blue skin would have given right away. Rogue Trooper is by far the better known title, so it seems most likely Jones would do a Rogue Trooper movie that Cyan happens to be a character in…though it’s possible he could just leap straight into a Tor Cyan solo film. Until we know what the approximate budget is, it’s hard to guess.
Are you excited for Jones to take on a future war? Or are we way off base, with the hint meaning something else? Let us know what you think below.
