Mega Man is getting a live-action Netflix movie

There are plans to make a live-action Netflix series based on Mega Man’s classic Capcom video game. It seems like Netflix would be the ideal home for the project, considering how successful its adaptations of Castlevania, The Witcher, and League of Legends: Arcane have been.

Just last week, we saw new trailers for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Halo, two video game adaptations on a tear. Chris Pratt plays Mario, and we’re getting an Uncharted movie in the near future.

Netflix announced recently that they will bring a more classic franchise to the streaming service: Mega Man, the Capcom “blue bomber” from the original NES.

Netflix is producing a live-action Mega Man movie

The Mega Man movie’s been in the works at Chernin Entertainment for a while now, and it became more formal in 2018 when Capcom revealed it would be live-action (!) and that Henry Joost and Rel Schulman were on board to write and direct.

Netflix recently announced (via Comicbook and IGN) that the picture had been picked up by the duo (via Supermarché).

They already have their hands full with projects like an adaptation of Mega Man for Chernin Entertainment and Netflix, for which they wrote the script and are directing.

The movie is still in its infancy, and there’s no indication of when it might be released. IGN reports that it’s still in very early stages of development. There is one thing worth pointing out, however: Netflix has a first-look agreement with Chernin. 

It is worth noting, however, that Chernin has a first-look agreement with Netflix. In any case, Netflix has a first-look agreement with Chernin. Netflix and Supermarché did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Netflix has identified the potential thanks to the success of its Witcher and Castlevania series that video game IP for adaptation is proving to be a gold rush, of course, and I can attest to the popularity of those series.

Netflix is also working on Resident Evil and Tomb Raider shows, as well as a Pokemon series. Gaming is generally regarded as having great potential, even when it comes to buying up film studios by itself.

We have recently seen Monster Hunter and Mortal Kombat movies, a The Last of Us TV series for HBO, maybe a Mass Effect show for Amazon, a Fallout series that’s for Amazon, and we just had Ghost of Tsushima and Metal Gear Solid movies. 

There is a possibility that a Portal movie will be made someday.

Conclusion

Netflix has a first-look agreement with Chernin Entertainment. The movie is still in its infancy, and there’s no indication of when it might be released. Netflix is also working on Resident Evil and Tomb Raider shows, as well as a Pokemon series.

The video game IP for adaptation is proving to be a gold rush, and gaming is generally regarded as having great potential, even when it comes to buying up film studios by itself. Netflix and Supermarché did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
