In one of his latest interview, Cavill has talked about his passion for the immensely popular action role-playing video game from developer CD Projekt Red when he was asked about what he has been playing lately.

Yeah, that would be an amazing role."

The Witcher video game franchise was built upon the novels written by Andrzej Sapkowski, by Polish developer studio CD Projekt Red, which led to three successful installments and received critical acclaim. Back in May 2017, online streaming-service Netflix decided to explore their very distinct take on the lore of the game before producer Lauren Schmidt Hissrich (Marvel's Daredevil, Marvel's The Defenders) was finally announced as series show-runner in December 2017.

Cavill also took interest in reading Sapkowski's novels and recommended them worth reading as they are really good. Previously, he revealed on Conan that he originally missed the call from director Zack Snyder to be cast as Superman in the first place, because he was too busy playing World of Warcraft at that time. Although we know very less about the status of this Netflix series development, the script for pilot has been completed according to some recent report but no news on casting yet.

Aside from being a little too short in length, Castlevania animated TV series was meant to change standards for video game adaptation and it did by breaking a streak on Rotten Tomatoes. On the same year, Assassin’s Creed and Warcraft movies opened up to less favorable critical reception. This year, Hollywood superstar Dwayne Johnson (Baywatch, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) starrer monster flick Rampage debuted with a bang but then failed to keep up in long run.

Back in January, series writer Warren Ellis (Astonishing X-Men – Xenogenesis, Iron Man – Extremis) announced on Twitter that Castlevania series is returning to summer 2018 with eight episodes for this season and Netflix has announced that date to be October 26, 2018.

Neil Druckmann Talks The Last of Us Inspiration

As creative game director at Naughty Dog, Neil Druckmann can surely take pride for his contribution to The Last of Us and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. Among these, the former is a critically acclaimed and commercially successful game with a sequel in works. At the 21st DICE Awards, he opened up about his source of inspiration for The Last of Us and its strong narrative in an interview with director Dan Trachtenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane, Black Mirror).

Druckmann says that how much he was fond of Monkey Island and the Sierra games. He revealed that as a story-centric game, Half-Life truly blew him away. His time at Naughty Dog started off as a programming intern working on Jak 3 and Jak X: Combat Racing. These eventually led him to work with adventurer Nathan Drake for the action-adventure genre of Uncharted game series.

RELATED: The Last of Us Part II Premiere Trailer

While working on these projects, Druckmann was always seeking answer for better ways of telling stories throughout the gameplay and with that mindset, his goal was to create characters who can tell stories without wearing any fancy costumes. So, when he got the chance to shape the world of The Last of Us for Naughty Dog in 2013, his long-time dream actually came true at long last.

In the game, the protagonist tries to protect a girl from the hazards of a post-apocalyptic world while constantly fighting ravaging infected populace of their surroundings. The perfect blend of story-telling through the elements of survival horror was created in the process and it left a deep impact on gamers and pop culture. With a record-breaking game taking the gaming world by storm, the developers focused on a sequel.

Currently, The Last of Us Part 2 II is in works for PlayStation 4 and already two breathtaking trailers are dropped. As he was talking about it, Druckmann reveals that the game took major inspiration from the dark comedy original Netflix series The End of the F***ing World and the emphasis were mainly focused on the dialogue of the sequel. According to him, the story of the series is well written and acted, which you would agree too if you have already watched the show or the trailer.

"There’s a show on Netflix called End of the F***ing World – which is so well written, acted, and quirky – has been totally inspiring the stuff we’re doing in [The Last of Us 2]. Again, more on the dialogue stuff."

Though the show, The End of the F***ing World is worth a binge watch if you are all game for a good time, the black comedic tones of the series hardly matches with a post-apocalyptic game setting of The Last of Us filled with cannibals and hostile humans everywhere. The edgy dialogues of it however, go along fine with the messed up atmosphere of the game. Neil Druckmann was probably referring to laughing at the darker side of things in Naughty Dog's crown jewel.

Netflix’s Castlevania Returns on Summer 2018

The animated TV series adaptation of Konami's fan-favorite action-adventure horror game series Castlevania by comic-book writer Warren Ellis (Astonishing X-Men: Xenogenesis, Iron Man: Extremis) and executive producer Adi Shankar (Dredd, The Grey), Castlevania on Netflix was exceptionally well received by the fans. As Netflix was interested for Castlevania Season 2 after the first Season, viewers are growing restless for it.

Recently, series writer Warren Ellis took Twitter to clear some air about the speculation for the second Season and here it goes.


Ellis is the one who helped Adi Shankar to adapt this Netflix project on 1989's Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse from game developer studio Konami. When the online streaming network was pleased with the positive reception for the four episode-long Season 1 of Castlevania anime, they decided to continue with a second Season. However, there were no announcement on when the show will return again and everyone was kind of caught off in the show's success party.


The Tweet from Warren Ellis reveals that the show is returning this summer of 2018 and instead of only four episodes, they are doubling up the number to eight. Which means, we are about to witness a lot more blood, gore, sword fighting and whip-wielding action from the Belmont clan with the undead monsters of night this summer. We are excited to see Trevor Belmont (voiced by Richard Armitage), Sypha Belnades (voiced by Alejandra Reynoso) and Alucard (voiced by James Callis) to return for more adventure this Season.


Netflix’s Castlevania anime adaptation for TV is also proven to be one of the most successful adaptations of a popular video game, which even broke the plateau of bad receptions on Rotten Tomatoes for the type. Many believes that Shankar’s Castlevania Netflix series having critically praised is no coincidence because, his unique take at this horror franchise was what it needed actually helped get it a lot of attention in the first place.

Castlevania Breaks Rotten Tomatoes Record

It's been quite a trend in Hollywood that whenever they see a franchise with a massive cult-following, they feel the necessity of milking that cow, regardless of the genre of that franchise. So far, comic-book movie adaptations are a phenomenon these days on both theater and televisions. Sometime, they even manage to garner critique's praises too. This trend is goes reverse whenever they decide to do a video game adaptation and for decades, it's been carried away like an ancient curse.

There are movies that made huge bucks at the box office like Tomb Raider movies, a series of multiple sequels like Resident Evil or have highly dedicated fan groups like Silent Hill that ranks high among the list of video game adaptations that has failed to satisfy the ever so unsatisfied tastes of the critiques. It looks like there is no apparent end to this misfortune of critically unsuccessful video game adaptations. The most recent causalities to add to the pile are the Assassin’s Creed and Warcraft adaptation films of 2017.

This massive curse streak has been broken recently and the credit goes entirely to the Netflix’s Castlevania anime series that has been certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes with a 90% rating. However, the rating is currently based on 10 reviews that have been given by various reviewers but to officially certified as “fresh”, Castlevania has to get a total 20 positive reviews. Still, the sign is enough for everyone to take a hint about what is about to happen.

Netflix’s Castlevania series is a project produced by Adi Shankar (Dredd, The Grey) and popular comic-book writer Warren Ellis (Iron Man, Ultimate Fantastic Four). The immense success of the series has also resulted a renewal for Castlevania Season Two by Netflix. With everything going right, there is also news that Shankar will also be taking over Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed TV Series adaptations.

Netflix Wants Castlevania Season 2

The news of the frequent cancellation of Netflix shows are a common thing these days. Castlevania video game adaptation series however is going quite opposite of that road. Perhaps, they really want to blow us off with more of this unique, perfect and never-before seen series and to back that up, executive producer of the show, Adi Shankar (Dredd, The Grey) has revealed that the streaming service has finally approved for the second season which features eight episodes instead of four from Season 1.

The news came in Shankar's reaction to a question regarding if there was any aspects that he wanted to adapt into the show but couldn't, he simply replied,

“Well, let’s remember that this is just season one, and not only has season two already been greenlit, but the episode order has been doubled to eight episodes. So the chapter definitely hasn’t fully closed on this story.”

Based on a smash-hit video game franchise, the plot of the Castlevania series revolves around the chronicles of the Belmont family, who has been hunting Vampires for generation to rid the world from the menace of the bloodsuckers. About the show, Shankar claimed at one point that it would turn out to be one of the first good video game adaptations and turns out, he was right.

Although many eager fans were quite disappointed knowing that the Castlevania adaptation series on Netflix will not be a live-action one but animated, Adi Shankar has really put a lot of effort to portray the bloody violence needed for the show and earned his applause in the end. So, it is safe to say that whatever happened eventually turned out for good because, the past record for live-action portrayal for video game has always been somewhat a disappointing experience for the hardcore fan-base.

Assassin's Creed Anime Announced

The producer and the mastermind behind the most recent animated Castlevania TV Series on Netflix, Adi Shankar, have recently announced his upcoming project that he took. He declares that fans should be anticipating an anime adaption of the ever popular Assassin’s Creed. Though there was no confirmation of any sort from Ubisoft officials, much of the news had come from one of Adi Shankar’s recent post on Facebook, where he briefly told us about his new project.

Assassin's Creed Anime Announced

According to the post, Shankar is quite happy to announce that his new project, Assassin’s Creed anime series. He continues by telling us how he thought it would be almost impossible or perhaps unimaginable that he could take the world of Assassin's Creed to another level. Shankar emphasizes on following your passion regardless of what others' says.



While this is an important step in moving Ubisoft's popular franchise to another level, it is clear that this is not the first time that the series has tried to transcend its video game world. In 2016, Michael Fassbender was picked as the major character Callum Lynch in the Assassin’s Creed live-action movie, where he revisited his ancestor’s memories to discover the location of the Apple of Eden.

Many people believed the film didn’t really do well yet it projected the fact that the series had potentials of working outside the video game and perhaps Adi Shankar should consider this in the new anime series. The series is included in Ubisoft Motion Pictures slate alongside a Splinter Cell movie adaptation starring Tom Hardy and Jake Gyllenhaal starrer The Division movie.

Shankar is quite famous for his many notable works as executive producer in Dredd, Lone Survivor etc. Apart from that, he is a content creator, a notable gamer and a staunch fan of the Assassin’s Creed. Although he never disclosed anything, not a single character, settings or even a release date apart from the fact that he has been asked to create an original story by Ubisoft. Fans still expect a huge surprise from his involvement to the project.

The name of the hero is still to be revealed and as this is Castlevania series, it is safe to assume that Dracula is the ultimate bad-guy of the show of course.

The Witcher Is Coming to Netflix

Ever since online streaming-service Netflix has ventured into television production and started working with big leagues like Marvel Studios, they gave the fans popular shows like Daredevil, Defenders, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. Beside those, Netflix have also produced a couple of other hit originals like House of Cards, Narcos and Orange is the New Black.

A while ago, they have announced debuting Castlevania series as one of their upcoming projects. Looks like fan-favorite action role-playing video game The Witcher is next on their list.

The Witcher Is Coming to Netflix

Yes, this is no rumor that Netflix has really begun developing a television series based on The Witcher. Since, Netflix is quite a big-deal on entertainment media these days, it is only natural that this massively popular video game adaptation should be on their fold. The series will be mostly based on the fictional books of Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski, rather than the works of developer studio CD Projekt Red.

So, fans who thought they are going to have a live-action Witcher series based on the game have to hold their horses. However, it is still not set in stone that any of the material from the game will be there or not but Sapkowski's work will be used as the primary source material for the show, that includes his eight novels and a collection of The Witcher Saga short-stories.

Sean Daniel (The Mummy) and Jason Brown (The Expanse); executive producers of the show suggested that the show will be an original take on the game and actually set focus on more than the surrounding materials of the story and not only on the primary characters, who are a group of hunters known as “Witchers”.

Activision Considering Call of Duty Cinematic Universe

When Iron Man came out on 2008, only a very few people were really aware of a Cinematic Universe that Marvel was building. Today, DC Films, Legendary Pictures and Universal Studios are following the footsteps of Marvel Studios by creating their own Cinematic Universe. Following the success of that trend, video game publisher Activision Blizzard has now decided to build a movie franchise which will be a Cinematic Universe on its own and they are about to start with one of their most successful titles; Call of Duty.

Almost two years ago, Activision took initiatives and announced to make successful live-action films and TV Series adaptations based on their properties. To make sure the quality of their production, they decided to do this in house. Now, with all those superhero movies breaking box-office records every other day, Activision is all set to debut their movie adaptation Call of Duty (probably in 2018) to jump-start their very own Cinematic Universe.

Solely for adapting games into blockbuster movies and popular television series, Activision has formed Activision Blizzard Studios and tasked its co-presidents Stacey Sher and Nick van Dyk to oversee the project for having previous expertise in movie industries. Sher is credited for Pulp Fiction, Garden State and The Hateful Eight, whereas Van Dyk was senior executive at Disney and has worked on films like Star Wars. With so many good-to-go scripts at their hand, they are just waiting for the right one to fit for an interconnected Cinematic Universe.

Though, they are initially focused on making a Call of Duty Cinematic Universe, Van Dyk also shared the idea of a potential Overwatch movie that will have its sequels. To test the water for their venture, Activision Blizzard has already released “Skylanders” series on Netflix in 2016 that managed to garner 10 million viewers in total.

Assassin's Creed TV Series Confirmed

Developer studio Ubisoft has finally unveiled its brand-new project which is Assassin’s Creed TV Series to expand their already popular franchise even further. Aymar Azazia, Assassin’s Creed head of content, shares this info at the Reddit AMA session. However, he has chosen to refrain from disclosing any other details about the series beforehand. Even while he chose to make the details a secret, Azaizia only promises to deliver the fans nothing but the best.

It is clear that an Assassin’s Creed TV show has, for now, not been formally announced. Yves Guillemot, CEO of Ubisoft, said that he had a formal talk with Netflix for an Assassin’s Creed TV series.

Assassin's Creed TV Series Confirmed

As for now, it seems the Assassin’s Creed TV show would perhaps be produced by Ubisoft Motion Pictures; Ubisoft’s TV and motion picture division. Ubisoft Motion Picture has previously produced the Nickelodeon TV show Rabbids Invasion as well as the Assassin’s Creed live-action movie, which came out in December 2016, starring actor Michael Fassbender. Also, as a major hint on the Assassin’s Creed TV show, Ubisoft is on the move on Assassin’s Creed sequel.

In the hope of getting more details, during AMA, Azaizia was interviewed about the new rumored Assassin’s Creed game, Assassin’s Creed: Empire, about which, Azaizia gave no significant node but it will presumably be set to have its setting in Egypt and a release date is set for later this year. Well, we can only assume that as Ubisoft did not release any major game title in 2016. Now, it is clear that Ubisoft’s cross media has finally tied up unto the task of expanding Assassin’s Creed franchise with a TV adaptation of the popular video game series.

Netflix’s Castlevania Poster Reveals Dracula’s Castle

Castlevania has been a well-known franchise to the video gamers of the world for many decades, which has more sequels than any other games out there as well as a handful of tie-in games and gambling machines based on its theme. A few days ago, news of a new drama series adaptation of Castlevania on Netflix was announced and now, the executive producer of the show, Adi Shankar has revealed a new poster for the series.

The poster showcases Dracula’s legendary castle on blood moon night with bats; the creature of the night that foreshadows the lord of vampire. The castle that depicts and symbolizes Dracula's lair was also a recurring theme of the Castlevania games. Throughout the years of the game's run, fans have become quite familiar with the castle where they have slain Dracula a number of times as he comes back resurrected each time anew.

The primary setup of Castlevania revolves around the Belmont clan, a family of hunters who slays Vampires for a living. They antagonized the race of blood sucking undeads and their dark lord for all their lives, to eradicate them from existence forever. So far, this was the base line for the main game plot that first came out in September 26, 1986 from developer studio Konami. But how much the source material is connected to Shankar’s Castlevania Netflix Series is still unclear since he teased of his association with this Netflix project.

Adi Shankar has previously worked on a couple of shorts on the re-imagining origin stories of The Punisher, Venom and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers for his Bootleg Universe. Shankar will be aided in the upcoming Castlevania Netflix Series by writer Warren Ellis, whose work on Transmetropolitan, Astonishing X-Men: Xenogenesis and Iron Man: Extremis story work is insanely popular among the fan base.

We are still nowhere close to a possible release date but according to Shankar, the show will drop its first season in 2017. The last game of the Castlevania series titled Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, was released back in 2014.
