It’s been five years since we last heard anything about a Mega Man movie being in the works and, as is common with video game film adaptation projects, we’ve heard very little since (aside from confirming the movie’s writer earlier this year). We still aren’t any the wiser regarding the film’s details, but that’s hopefully set to change soon.
In an interview with IGN, the live-action Mega Man movie directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman discussed the project as part of Comic Con at Home (an online event held in place of the canceled San Diego Comic Con 2020), wherein Joost teased that he may have “big news” to share soon.
“We had such a great time working with Mattson [Tomlin] on Project Power that we invited him in to help us out with Mega Man. We’re super excited about it,” Joost says. “I think we’re gonna have some big news about it soon. I can’t say all that much right now, but it’s a project very near and dear to our hearts and we’re psyched.”

It’s a promising update for those who want to see the Blue Bomber on the big screen, and a Mega Buster to the face of cynics like me who assumed Mega Man would get mega-canned.
