As reported by IGN, the executive producer behind Netflix’s Castlevania series, Adi Shankar, confirmed that a series based on Capcom’s Devil May Cry is in the works.
I think it’s safe to say that the Devil May Cry series has high potential considering just how good Shankar’s Castlevania series is. Shankar told IGN he, “acquired these (Devil May Cry) rights myself so the jabronis in Hollywood don’t f*** this one up too.”
Also, Shankar revealed that the Devil May Cry series “will join Castlevania in what we’re now calling the bootleg multiverse.”
As for what this means for Netflix’s Castlevania as a whole is still unknown. That series just released its second season in late October to high praise amongst fans and critics across the world. Just a few days after the second season launched, Netflix greenlit a third season of the animated show.
The Devil May Cry series has sold more than sixteen million copies worldwide, and is centred around demon-killer Dante, and its atmospheric visuals and scarily tricky bosses sandwich a lot of hacking and a lot of slashing. There’s certainly the guts of an action movie in there.
