The final tidbits from the Russo Brothers panel at San Diego Comic-Con include that their film Cherry starring Tom Holland will be Rated-R, considering it’ll be a bank-robbing film that makes a lot of sense.

They also announced that they’ll be making a project based on the anime Battle of The Planets (Anthony Russo was rocking a t-shirt), not sure if that is animated/live-action or for TV or film. The details there are a little scarce at the moment.

The Russos also showed off a couple of logos for various projects were dropped including one for their Netflix series for Magic: The Gathering and The Thomas Crown Affair reboot.

Deadline added a little bit more information on the Battle of The Planets thing.

Today at Comic-Con, the Joe and Anthony Russo announced projects that their AGBO Studios are in development on: an adaptation of the 1978 Japanese anime series Battle of the Planets and an Amazon series based on the graphic novel Grimjack Comics. 

Battle of the Planets was originally created by Tatsuo Yoshida and Tatsunoko Studios and was arguably the first mainstream glimpse for U.S. audiences into Japanese anime during the late 1970s. In addition, it was one of the few sci-fi cartoons during that era. The series follows five young orphans who are trained from a young age to form an elite, intergalactic team known as G-Force, swearing to protect Earth and its allies from otherworldly invading forces.
