Invincible Robert Kirkman has shared a promising new update on the status of the live-action movie in the making. While Invincible has become more popular than ever in recent years thanks to the animated series on Prime Video, as early as 2017 Skybound Entertainment revealed that a movie based on the series would take place at Universal Pictures. However, in the six or so years since that announcement, nothing substantial has happened regarding the project, leading some fans to wonder if it’s still in development. Fortunately, Kirkman has now confirmed that the film is still in progress and production is picking up steam.
In conversation with ComicBook.com to look back on 20 years Invincible, Kirkman emphasized that the film adaptation of the series is still in the pipeline. While he wasn’t committed to when there would be substantial new updates to the film, Kirkman added that the success of the TV series has only helped when it comes to moving the project to Universal.
“We’re still working on that,” Kirkman said of the live-action film. “Sometimes movies take a little bit longer. I think it’s safe to say the show contributed a lot to that. People are really excited about that movie potential at Universal. So we’re riding that excitement and trying to push things forward as quickly as possible .”
Currently, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are still linked for the Invincible movie. And while Rogen and Goldberg have plenty of other projects they’re juggling at the moment, Rogen himself is still bound to Invincible in a fairly direct way. In particular, Rogen serves as an executive producer on the Invincible TV series and coincidentally also the character, Allen the Alien, on the show.
Even if 2023 comes and goes in some major news about the Invincible movie, we do know that this year still has to be big for the real estate. Notably, it is now known that “late 2023” will finally bring the second season of Invincible on Prime Video. If there’s any additional information about the movie this year, we’ll be sure to update you here at ComicBook.com.
