The many viewers that tuned in were not prepared for the blood, gore, and action in the animated adaptation of the “Invincible” comic. Amazon’s hit show got immensely popular, so much so, that talks of a live-action version have come to light. Showrunner Robert Kirkman in conversation with comicbook.com had some very promising things to say with regard to the project.
“We’re very much still working on that,” Kirkman said.
“Sometimes movies take a little bit longer. I think it’s safe to say, if anything, the show has just helped that immensely. People are very excited about that movie potential at Universal. So we’re riding that excitement and trying to push things forward as quickly as possible.” He explained.
Now, even though there is a promise, some fans are worried about the live-action version living up to the animated masterpiece’s success. Achieving the delicate balance between storyline, action, and gore is in some terms easier to achieve in animation, Thus, many are unsure if it will be aptly duplicated in the live-action version, additionally, actors have not been spoken of for any characters. However, for now, we can look forward to the coming season two and watch how the unruly young hero deals with the coming calamities in late 2023.
