Disney’s First Animated Marvel Comic Book Movie ‘Big Hero 6′ Hitting Theaters in 2014?
As we all know, Disney and Marvel Studios aren’t done making blockbusters based on Marvel Comics just yet. We’ve got ‘Iron Man 3,’ ‘Thor: The Dark World,’ ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’ and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ to look forward to between now and the end of 2014. And now we’ve learned that Disney’s first animated film based on a Marvel comic could be hitting theaters as soon as November 2014.
Disney and Marvel Studios are reportedly bringing the Marvel superhero comic ‘Big Hero 6’ to theaters next year. A new report from Bleeding Cool states that the Marvel animated flick is slated for a November 2014 release in Spain, and the U.S. release will happen around the same time.
‘Big Hero 6’ isn’t as popular a book as, say, ‘The Avengers’ or ‘Iron Man,’ of course, but the comic sounds like it could make a pretty unique action-adventure flick. The book centers on a team of superheroes formed by the Japanese government who live under a Japanese theme park. ‘Big Hero 6′ characters include Silver Samurai, a mutant who wields a supercharged katana, Sunfire, a former X-Man gifted with the power of flight and super heat generation, and Fred, aka “Fredzilla,” because of his ability to turn into a giant lizard-like monster.
This sounds like it could be a pretty crazy animated film if they stick close to the source material. What do you think? Are you excited to see ‘Big Hero 6’ hit theaters?
