According to the latest reports, a live-action movie based on
the popular Megaman character is being made by
Netflix. Megaman is a challenging, classic 2D game series
that Capcom is tasked with releasing. At that time, the film was
called "MEGA MAN". Henry Just and Ariel Schulman have confirmed
that the film was written and directed. New Megaman movie
news has been released via an update on Supermarch's website. In
the published article, a list of works of art by Just and Rell
Schulman, which includes two parts of the paranormal activity
series and , can be seen.
According to this update, the latest project currently being
worked on by the two is a live-action film based on the
Megaman classic video game series. Specifically, Henry Just,
Rell Schulman, and producer Orly Rose Strauss will co-write and
direct an adaptation of Megaman for Chernin Entertainment
and Netflix. Netflix and Capcom have not yet made
official statements, and fans should keep that in mind. Fans should
not expect much unless there is a marketing campaign or promotion
for the film. We hope that this little information will not cancel
this project because it often happens behind the scenes that causes
such things to happen. "We are very excited about this film," Jost
said. I think we will publish important details about it soon. I
can not say much at the moment, but this is a project that is very
dear and valuable to us.
Since the film is made live-action, the question arises as to how they will achieve this goal. Bringing a moving blue robot to life is not an easy task. There are several paths they can take to reach this goal, but there are also many paths that can help defeat this film. On the other hand, making films based on popular game characters has always faced opposition. Everyone has seen what happens when creators design a character in a way that does not reflect the source of their adaptation. Sonic the Hedgehog was the victim of a backlash from the fans due to the design of the main character in its first trailer, although it had a design closer to the real world. As Sonic's design came closer to the game version, fans flocked to watch the movie. With Megaman entering the live-action format, it's hard to say which way the filmmakers will go. He may be portrayed as an actor in a robotic suit or with special effects in a world where those around him are real.
Although the film is in the early stages of development, it can be said that Netflix Looks like the company has had a lot of success with recent adaptations of the Witcher series, the Castle and the League of Legends (Arkin).
