The live-action adaptation of My Hero Academia will appear on Netflix. It is unknown when exactly it will be available on the streaming service. The movie is still in development, and there is not even a cast list yet. Legendary Entertainment‘s Mary Parent and Alex Garcia will produce it. [Thanks, Variety!]
So far, there is an established line-up of staff working on the Netflix My Hero Academia live-action movie. Shinsuke Sato will be the director and executive producer. He previously worked on Alice in Borderland. This is also the first English movie in his career. Joby Harold of Obi-Wan Kenobi worked on the screenplay.
My Hero Academia is the latest in a beloved anime, manga, or video game franchises appearing in live-action format. Just within the year, we saw companies working on the live-action versions of Yu Yu Hakusho, Death Note, and Golden Kamuy. In fact, Yu Yu Hakusho and Death Note will also appear on Netflix. Time will tell if the live-action Golden Kamuy will make it onto the streaming service.
My Hero Academia is a wildly popular superhero manga and anime series that started serialization in 2014. It follows Izuku “Deku” Midoriya, who lives in a world where everyone has a Quirk (or superpower) and some people make a career out of it as superheroes. He loves superheroes but unfortunately, he does not have a Quirk. One day, he meets his hero All Might, who is the greatest superhero in the world, and All Might bestows upon Midoriya his One For All Quirk. With his new power, Midoriya starts attending U.A. High School in hopes of becoming a superhero.
