“A New Universe…”

Pardon the quote from The Avengers*, readers, but it is fitting. Japan is going to attempt their own MCU-style film serial starring some of their most famous properties. These include Godzilla*, Ultraman, Kamen Rider, and an Evangelion series. Since I have not kept up with Evangelion I hesitate to say which version it is; the article linked below will have more information for the curious.

Given the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe it is not at all surprising that others would attempt to follow in their footsteps. It remains to be seen if Japan’s monumental plan will accomplish its ends with the same degree of financial reward. But you have to admire their ambition – and, if you are a fan of these properties, being cautiously or raucously optimistic certainly doesn’t hurt!

One thought on ““A New Universe…”

  1. Great project! Since this comes from Japan, dare we hope that the result might be superhero films without toxic “wokeness?” Even the need for English subtitles would be no impediment to my enjoyment of any film reaching that goal. I can always learn new characters. 😁
