Warner Bros.’ adaptation of the DC/Vertigo comic book The Losers seems to be generating bigger buzz. With more and more actors of note being added to the cast, The Losers is looking like it could potentially be one hell of a surprise action hit for Warner Bros.

Coming late to the party, Alex Billington over at First Showing thought to familiarize himself (and by extension the many of you out there who also aren’t familiar) with the world of The Losers by matching Wikipedia‘s handy Loser‘s character list to the actors playing the roles. Get familiar:

The Losers was a DC/Vertigo comic book series that ran from August 2003 to March 2006. It follows a special forces unit tasked with waging the war on terror, who are ultimately betrayed by their handler, Max (Jason Patric) and get left for dead. Of course they don’t die, but instead band together to get their revenge on Max, and also wipe their names and identities off a CIA “death list.”

The cast now includes Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen), Idris Elba (The Wire), Zoe Saldana (Star Trek), Chris Evans (Push), Columbus Short (Stomp The Yard), Jason Patric (Speed 2, Baby!) Holt McCallany (Vantage Point) and Spanish actor Óscar Jaenada (The Limits of Control). The film is being adapted and directed by Sylvain White (Stomp The Yard).

Since First Showing did so much C&P work, I’ll just introduce you to three of The Losers we’ve already covered, and then point you to where you can meet the rest. Here are your top Losers:

.

Clay (Jeffrey Dean Morgan)

Clay is the leader, a brilliant tactician with a big revenge grudge.

The Losers is slated to hit theaters on April 16, 2010 (one week before The Expendables, which is another special-operatives-bent-on-revenge flick).
