My Hero Academia has become very successful over the years, and of course, a series as big as this should get more recognition by announcing a Live-Action film. Recently, Legendary Entertainment Announced that they’re working on a My Hero Academia Live-Action film.
My Hero Academia Live-Action Film Announced
Not much is known about the movie so far, but we do know that Alex Garcia and Jay Ashenfelter will be overseeing the project for Legendary Entertainment, while the Editor of Kohei Horikoshi’s manga, Ryousuke Yoritimi will be overseeing the project for Shueisha. The movie is distributed in Japan by Toho. I don’t really have high hopes for the movie, but I hope that it doesn’t disappoint. As you all know, Live-Action films don’t really do well when they adapt mangas. We have seen enough disasters, and frankly, we don’t really want yet another Dragon Ball Evolution.
Now on the bright side, I checked out Tokyo Ghoul’s Live-Action film, and it wasn’t half bad, while Full Metal Alchemist was decent as well. I’d put them way above Dragon Ball Evolution, and if the movie is anything like that, I’d be happy. I don’t know how it is going to turn out. I’m already skeptical about the One Piece Live-Action TV show that was announced last year, and now we have this.
As I said before, my expectations aren’t high at all. In fact, I’ve kept them pretty low. I will definitely check this film out once it comes out, as if it turns out to be bad, then I won’t be surprised. However, if it is actually good, I will be very happy to see a decent Live-Action Adaptation.
So far, a release date for the Live-Action film hasn’t been announced. It is going to take some time for them to come out with this movie, and it definitely won’t be out in 2019. When we do get some more information on My Hero Academia Live-Action film, we’ll let you all know. Make sure you check out Otakukart regularly for all the updates related to anime, and manga. I’ll see you guys soon!
