Universal Pictures will not doubt continue to build anticipation during the interim. In furtherance of that purpose, 16 new images from the film have been released.

When it comes to diversifying his brand, 50 Cent is no slouch. Though his star no longer shines nearly as brightly as it once did, he keeps pushing boldly into new territory. Now, he’s looking to conquer yet another medium: comic books. That would seem to be an easy fit given his larger than life persona and superhero physique. However, his first venture into the world of primary colors will not be the usual capes and tights fare. Instead, it will be an adaptation of 50’s 2009 novel with Robert Greene, The 50th Law.
