One of the classic video games from back in the day is Mega Man. The franchise is still being played even today, and we’ve seen various collections and remasters made over the years. However, it looks like Capcom could be looking to revitalize the series by making a movie based around it.

This is according to a report from IGN who has heard from their sources that Netflix and Capcom are apparently developing a live-action Mega Man movie. Netflix has yet to officially announce anything, but Rockman Corner discovered a post on Supermarche’s website (the film’s production company) that let some details slip.

According to the post, “Henry, Rel, and their in-house producer Orlee-Rose Strauss maintain an active development slate. Features in the works include an adaptation of Capcom’s Mega Man for Chernin Entertainment and Netflix, which they wrote and are directing.”

This wouldn’t be the first time that the idea of a live-action Mega Man movie was floated. It was revealed back in 2018 that a movie was being developed and was initially meant to be released by 20th Century Fox, however this new report suggests that it might have been moved onto Netflix’s platform.

Netflix has been steadily expanding its library of movies and TV shows based around video games, such as The Witcher TV series, Castlevania, Dota 2, Arcane, and so on.
