Hey Russo Brothers! You just completed a the movie event of the Decade what are you going to do next?
Move over Pokemon! One of the biggest card games in generations just got greenlit to a series! Netflix has just announced that Joe and Anthony Russo will spearhead a new animated series as part of a new partnership between the streaming giant and Hasbro’s Allspark Studios. The animated series will revolve around the magic-wielding Planeswalkers.
The Russo Brothers have been very vocal in the past about making projects based on properties they loved when they were kids. When asked if they would direct another Marvel Movie Joe answered “We’re taking a step back from Marvel movies for know but I told them to call me when they’re ready to make Secret Wars”.
At this rate. I think we can all agree that the Russos have earned the right to have “Toy Box Privilege” when Choosing their projects. “We have been huge fans and players of Magic: The Gathering for as long as it has been around, so being able to help bring these stories to life through animation is a true passion project for us,”
What we know now is that the Russos are The executive producers of the series and it will be a Manga Style animation which fits right where Netflix has been going. Bringing series like Castlevania, Ultraman and Ingress: The Animation to it’s lineup.
With the arrival of the new Disney+ Streaming service, Disney will be removing all of it’s content from Netflix leaving a hole of entertainment to be filled. Of course we know Netflix is up to the task and this could be one of the right moves that keeps people from ditching the “Chill” platform for the Mouse. Hey! Competition is good for business right?
