Fullmetal Alchemist: The Final Chapter – Scar the Avenger is the first film in a two-part live-action film series, set to debut later this year. The movies will pick up where the last live-action film left off in 2017. Scar the Avenger and The Last Transmutation will feature a cast of popular Japanese actors. Last month, the Twitter account released a series of stills featuring these actors playing characters such as Van Hohenheim, King Bradley, Ling Yao, and Olivier Mira Armstrong.

The latest series of Fullmetal Alchemist live-action stills focus on King Bradley and his family, including Selim Bradley. The two characters are also known as Wrath and Pride, respectively. Wrath and Pride are two Homunculi that play an important part in Fullmetal Alchemist‘s story. Importantly, Selim is the second-in-command of the Homunculi, and is arguably King Bradley’s senior. To this, Hiroshi Tachi commented that, despite being vastly different in age, Terada was a “brilliant actor” that was “able to immediately immerse himself into the world’s setting.”

Terada, a 13-year-old child actor, stated that one of his favorite scenes was when Selim was able to be a regular kid around King Bradley and his wife. In order to differentiate his two personalities, Terada explained that he focused on changes in voice depth. When acting as Pride, Terada also focused on acting arrogant and looking down on people.

The Fullmetal Alchemist: The Final Chapter – Scar the Avenger live-action movie will premiere in Japanese theaters on May 20, 2022. The second new entry, The Last Transmutation, will debut on June 24, 2022. There is no confirmation of an English or Western release.
