Castlevania showrunner Adi Shankar has become well known for his dark retellings of the nerdy franchises that we hold near and dear to our hearts, but which fandom does he want to tackle next?
Last week, Shankar added a gritty, violent Pokemon parody, The End of Pokemon, to his Bootleg Cinematic Universe. After the trailer debuted exclusively on IGN, we caught up with Shankar to ask if there are any anime series he dreams of adapting for live-action. He told IGN’s Jacki Jing that the anime at the top of his wishlist is My Hero Academia.
“It’s that tone that Pixar really nails – adult themes, not watered down,” Shankar said of how he would approach adapting a series that is much lighter than the likes of Castlevania or his upcoming Devil May Cry series for Netflix.
