Forums - Movies Discussion - Devil May Cry Series Joins Castlevania in New Multiverse from Adi Shankar

 

IGN can confirm that an animated-series adaptation of Capcom's popular video game franchise, Devil May Cry, is in the works. The series will be developed by Castlevania executive producer Adi Shankar.

Shankar, in an exclusive interview with IGN's Jacki Jing, also revealed that his Devil May Cry series “will join Castlevania in what we’re now calling the bootleg multiverse.”

While Shankar didn't give us any specifics in terms of what this all means for the series' overall story, he did inform us that he "acquired these (Devil May Cry) rights myself so the jabronis in Hollywood don’t f*** this one up too." Shankar's financial investment should allow him more creative freedom, as he begins to build this wildly ambitious multiverse of his.

Shankar attributes the Devil May Cry series announcement to the success Castlevania, which he says, "really over-performed. It did crazy well. We immediately got greenlit for Season 3.” Thanking the fans who made this all possible, Shankar said, “I wouldn’t have a job if it wasn’t for the fans."

So Dante and Alucard may be fighting together in a new series, or in Castlevania season 3? Who knows, but since I liked Castlevania, I'm looking forward to this.

I guess this is the thing everybody thought might be Zelda a few weeks ago



Nothing to see here, move along

I updated the title to remove the ALL CAPS.

You made the thread 7% less awesome.

I actually don't know how I didn't think of the caps when I pasted it. lol

I'm on episode 3 of season 2 of Castlevania, seems like they are really spreading it thin to get those 8 episodes out.

@John2290 
I've only seen Season 1 so far. But I heard good things of Season 2.

This.

First season of Castlevania was great but I'm not sure if I'm even gonna bother finishing the second it's so damn dull.

I'll give Dante a go but hopefully it's better.



Mmmh ... I really wanted it to be a Zelda series but it shouldn't surprise anyone when you look at the producer for these series.

I guess we can still hope for a Ninty x Ghibli colaboration :O
