Following the release of Godzilla vs. Kong earlier this year, Legendary Entertainment has announced plans for a live-action adaptation of the popular superhero manga and anime series, My Hero Academia.
Shinsuke Sato, the director of Netflix series Alice in Borderland and Kingdom, and live-action adaptations Death Note: New Generation and Bleach, will make his English-language film debut with this project. My Hero Academia was created by Kohei Horikoshi in 2014, and has become a hit sensation in Japan and abroad, with over 50 million manga copies sold, five seasons of anime, and a feature film.
For those unfamiliar with the show, the story is centered around Izuku Midoriya, a young student who’s a huge fan of superheroes despite not having any natural abilities (quirks) of his own. In a chance encounter, he meets the most powerful superhero in the world, All-Might, from which he inherits a powerful quark of his own. Midoriya enrolls into the prestigious U.A High School hero academy and begins his tumultuous journey to becoming the world’s greatest hero.
