Without wasting any of your precious time, lets begin.
Netflix Making A Live Action Mega Man movie
Netflix is not slowing down with their live action remakes or adaptations with rumours popping up that they are currently developing a live Action Mega Man movie.
The movie itself is said to have been in development since 2015 with an official announcement being made by Capcom in 2018, the movie has Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman writing and directing. It is unkown when the movie will come but it is said to be in early development stages.
Wednesday Addams Spin-off in the works
Wednesday Addams is getting her own live action spin-off series on Netflix which will see the character go off to school at the magical Nevermore Academy, her parents will have roles in the series.
Directed by Tim Burton and with music from Danny Elfman the series will reunite the iconic duo and be Burton’s first series directorial debute, the series will come to netflix in 2022.
Gotham Knights series coming to The CW
A Gotham Knights series is currently in the works for The CW and if you’re worried then you’re just like me. The series will not be connected to the video game of the same name and will be written by the writers of Batwoman.
The series won’t have a similar story to that of the game but will instead see Bruce Wayne’s rebellious son team up with the children of Batman’s classic villains that have been framed as accomplices in Bruce’s murder, they will fight to clear their name and in time become a new symbol of hope for Gotham. I don’t know about you but that sounds kinda interesting.
Kickass will be rebooted soon
Remember Kickass? The action comedy movie that saw comic book nerd Dave (Skinnier Aaron Taylor-Johnson) become a real-life superhero called Kick-Ass. The movie series was a based on the comic book from Mark Millar and John Romita. Well that will be rebooted in 2 years confirmed director Matthew Vaughn.
The rights to the property are currently own by Marv Films and many other different companies in other countries (Probably for distribution) but after 2 years these right will come back to Marv Films which is owned by Vaughn. Check out the entire story here.
