    So do you peeps think it'll be an unbearably stupid premise so far from its source that the mind will boggle at how they came up with it?

    Or will it be like some gritty ass robocop knock off with an OoC Mega Man who blasts Wily in the head at the end?

    Considering the Sonic movie dumpster fire (and the tendency of video game movies to be awful) I don't expect anything good to come of this.

    Like, seriously, if you're going to make a video game movie, make it animated!
    I don't expect that Mario movie from Illumination to be good (in fact I expect them to turn marketable mascot characters like Toads into Minions 2.0), but at least it's going to be an animated movie. Games like Sonic, Mega Man, Mario--they don't translate to live-action. Being animated wouldn't mean it'd be good but it would be a step in the right direction.

    Hollywood sure hates making money on cartoon and game films for some reason.

    No to derail the topic but this is related to Video game movies. I would love to see a Metroid movie. I know after the disaster that was the Super Mario Bros Nintendo didn’t want to make another VG movie. You can tell the directors had no idea how to handle the source material. If the can keep the atmosphere of the Megaman games (as well as the designs) it should do good.

    It already sort of has a movie in Aliens, because that's what Metroid is based on. And then they made an Aliens game on...I think the Sega Genesis.

    True but the main character didn’t ware a battle suit shooting stuff.

    I'm a bit confused at this statement, not being familiar with Astroboy. (And yes I know he was an influence on the blue bomber.)

    There was an CGI animated Astro Boy movie like...Oh wow, ten years ago. Fans of the character are generally divided on the quality of the film.

    For a while my sister wouldn't stop watching it. Anyway, I think what BB Shockwave was saying is that he thinks that movie was bad, and IgnikaMarcus is disagreeing?

    Dwayne Johnson should play Megaman. The Rock playing Rockman. If the movie's gonna be bad, they should shoot for so bad, it's good
