    Mario had one in the 1990s, Sonic the Hedgehog will be getting one next year, and soon to join the ranks of live action video game movies is Capcom's Blue Bomber, Mega Man. Simply titled Mega Man, it'll be written and directed by the partner team of Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, known for their work on "Paranormal Activity 4", as well as the MTV show "Catfish". Outside of the aforementioned, details are fairly light on what the movie will entail, or when it will release. This follows the recent release of Mega Man 11, the Mega Man X Collection, and the new CGI cartoon "Mega Man Fully Charged".

    it's just gonna be the main character trying to say his lines for the first scene without screwing up over and over and over again.

    I feel like they should’ve made it a CGI movie or at least had Michael Bay produce it lol.

    Live action...megaman...

    I mean, it's the story of how a robot butler consumes his enemies to absorb their powers in an effort to take down the nemesis of his creator.

    Not sure how well that's going to translate to the big screen.

    Wasn't it dead already? 11 is more or like a zombie


    And stop with this live action bullshit for movies that should obviously be in cgi/2d.

    Yikes. Did they specifically request the most D-list writer/directors they possibly could, or did they just offer next to nothing for compensation?
