BRZRKR (TBC) Netflix - Keanu Reeves stars

Keanu Reeves is to headline a movie based on the BOOM! comic book series. Reeves plays (and helps write the source material) an immortal who finds himself working for the U.S. Government, taking down baddies deemed too violent or dangerous for anyone else. He is also voicing the same character for an anime spin-off.

I had a flick through BRZRKR #1 a couple of weeks ago and it's pretty fun. It is shamelessly storyboarding for the movie and/or anime, though. It was a harder, grosser, bloodier John Wick without the emotional depth.

I don't get these sorts of ventures. Announcing comic, movie and cartoon at the same time just makes me wonder whether it's going to do any of those things particularly well. It's all very "co-ordinated media synergy stunt."

Sounds like a winner to me!

I agree with your second part though. It's like an over-excited child with too many new toys. Inevitably there will be tears when something gets broken.

Standard Netflix bull in a China shop stuff as well.
