With their resources of characters, it’s always struck me as rather peculiar (or during least, a unequivocally large missed opportunity) that Marvel doesn’t do adequate in terms of strange charcterised movies. There’s unequivocally zero to stop them from exploiting a direct-to-DVD charcterised marketplace a approach D.C. is doing in their partnership with Warner Bros. Sure, D.C. tends to get fixated on Batman and Superman, though we unequivocally can’t error them for going behind to a good so often, given that Bats and Supes continue to sell. we would suppose they’ll stop double/triple/quadruple dipping usually when those dual guys stop producing.
After giving a direct-to-DVD charcterised height a go in 2006 with dual “Ultimate Avengers” movie, afterwards following that adult with “Planet Hulk” in 2010, Marvel is jumping behind into a charcterised diversion with a “Big Hero 6″ movie.
Wait. “Big Hero 6″? Who a ruin is “Big Hero 6″?
Well, we could ask a same thing about a “Guardians of a Galaxy”, that Marvel is now reliable to be prepping for 2014. I’m flattering certain 99% of a moviegoing open have no thought who a Guardians are, either, and will be even less associating about “Big Hero 6″. Which would make it, what, 99.9999% who have never listened of a comics? Close enough.
Apparently “Big Hero 6″ is a organisation of “powerful people with extravagantly opposite histories and powers, joined by a Japanese supervision as a crisis-fighting super-squad.” Basically a Avengers — though Japanese. The register now includes: informed X-Men characters Sunfire and Silver Samurai, along with Honey Lemon, something called Go-Go Tomago, and Hiro, a 13-year aged child talent and his drudge pet dragon, Baymax.
There are no confirmations that this is something Marvel is partnering adult with Disney Animated to replenish their direct-to-DVD efforts with, though it sounds like a flattering plain bet. It indeed creates some-more clarity than we would think. The studio has been doing a slew of ongoing charcterised TV shows directed roughly exclusively during a Japanese market. Iron Man, Wolverine, and a X-Men have all been relaunched in new years with a decidedly Japanese tint. Why not go all-in with an all-Japanese superhero line-up?
As with a “Guardians of a Galaxy” film announcement, design a “Big Hero 6″ central proclamation to come during Marvel’s army during Comic Con subsequent month. we consternation how a studio is feeling right now about all their large announcements removing leaked weeks forward of time? You got some strong large leakages there, Marvel. Best start doing some plugging…
