MEGA MAN Movie to Happen Soon?

Greetings Comic Book Fans,

Yesterday, Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, directors of the 2010 documentary Catfish, are "final negotiations" to direct 20th Century Fox's live-action Mega Man film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Although best known for their documentary, Joost and Schulman transitioned to fictional films with 2016's Nerve and two Paranormal Activity sequels.

Fox's Mega Man film is being produced by Heroes alum Masi Oka and Chernin Entetainment.


Breaking News Comic Book fans!

Sega of America has terminated Archie Comics' license to produce comic books based on its Sonic the Hedgehog.

"After 24 years of memorable storytelling, SEGA of America will conclude their Sonic the Hedgehog publishing partnership with Archie Comics," stated a statement from SEGA. "This does not mark the end of Sonic in comics, but signifies SEGA of America's decision to take a different direction for the series that will be announced at a later date. SEGA would like to thank Sonic's amazing fans for their loyalty and passion over all the years. SEGA looks foward to providing more information soon."

First launched in 1992, Archie produced over 280 issues of a Sonic the Hedgehog series as well as various spin-offs. In January 2017, the publisher abruptly cancelled all solicited Sonic-related titles (as well as a planned 2017 Free Comic Book Day title) and did not solicit any since.

What do you think of this move?  Where would you like to see Sonic end up?
