My Hero Academia Getting Netflix Live-Action

My Hero Academia Getting Netflix Live-Action

The My Hero Academia anime launched back in 2016, and has since grown to be one of the more popular shonen titles today. We know that Netflix is already working on adaptations of several anime properties, and it looks like Deku and his friends could be getting the live-action treatment next.

As per The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix has teamed up with Legendary Entertainment for the live-action adaptation of My Hero Academia. The streaming service has hired Joby Harold (Obi-Wan Kenobi) to write the feature film, and will have director Shinsuke Sato (Alice in Borderland, Bleach) at the helm.

Just to get an idea of what kind of anime adaptation we can expect from Sato, here’s the trailer for his adaptation of Bleach:

I personally never expect too much from these anime adaptations, and I’m pretty sure Netflix is still sitting in that ‘bad anime adaptation’ hole after the live-action Cowboy Bebop. Even if that is the case though, I can’t blame them for trying.

With superhero properties being released left and right, and with Disney+ setting the bar with their Marvel series, My Hero Academia the movie has a lot to live-up to. Then again, they pretty much already made the ‘school for superheroes’ movie when Disney released Sky High back in 2005. Some fans are still waiting on that sequel which would have put the main characters in superhero college a.k.a. Save U.

No release date has been set for the live-action adaptation of My Hero Academia.
