Mega Man Fan-Film Update

After a little delay, Eddie Lebron returns with more updates regarding the status of his upcoming, live action Mega Man fan-film.

Currently, Eddie is devoting his time to the completion of the finale, which he describes as the most complex scene of the entire film. Once this scene is appropriately edited, the film will move even closer to finally being completed. Additionally, there is some work to be done on the score and VFX.

To generate hype for the film and reinvigorate interest in the official blog, visitors are being asked to send in their questions and comments to the film's actors. Questions asked before Friday, the 11th, will be presented to the cast who will answer them personally.

Finally, as a special treat, Mr. Lebron revealed four new film posters featuring Mega Man, Fire Man, Elec Man, and Cut Man (pictured)

More updates expected to appear on the project's official blog.

  1. If I didn't have to be logged in to comment, I'd ask them how they feel about the people who mindlessly bash the film because it's "different".

    I'm likin' those posters. :) Can't wait to see the finished film (and here's to hoping that it won't be in some weirdass file format that my computer can't read)!

  2. The posters look neat, but I'm not really digging Cutman's design there.

    Up to now it looks like another videogame-adaption that'll be destined to be deemed horrible by fans and bashed all over the place.

    I'll wait until it's out to tell my personal opinion about it.

  5. @Anon1: It'd look even uglier if he stuck with Capcom's design 100%. Some things don't translate well to real life.

    ...Figured it wouldn't be long before the disrespectful comments showed up.

  8. I'm impressed by the amount of effort these guys have put into this. Adapting ANY cartoony version of something to a live-action movie is extremely difficult. For example, the scary thing that is Disney's Alice and Wonderland (whose advertisement poster made me freak out).

  9. I am genuinely impressed at the fact that there isn't a single unfair comment yet. Have we finally decided to reserve judgment until the film is released?

  11. @AsianSteev: None? XD Pluvius has already called someone a nice name because he thought Cutman was ugly.

  13. Many people are bashing the film because of its realistic way 'cause they prefer to see the actors using spandex with armor parts like the games! :P
    Come on, it's not THAT bad, is it? At least the visual is better then the Dragon Ball movie...

  18. @ Pluvius:

    Then consider me one of those "fuckfaces". Every single person in this film is miscast. Mega Man is a not a full-grown man. Casting preteen/young teenagers in the roles of Rock and Roll make sense, casting adults does not. Dr. Wily having gray hair and a gray mustache makes sense, casting a guy who looks far too young to play Dr. Wily and does not have gray hair or a gray mustache does not. CGI characters that actually resemble the robot masters makes sense, CGI characters that bear no resemblance to robot masters does not.

    See a pattern here? All you people saying "I'll wait till it's out to tell my personal opinion" are denying the undeniable: the movie may be fantastic on sheer cinematic merits alone, but as an adaption of the Mega Man series it looks like a lot of money being spent to make a lot of..for lack of a better word, fail. Kind of like the Hero of Time movie with it's awful casting choices of Link, Zelda, and the Kokiris. Sometimes fan movies can be worse than even the worst Hollywood adaptions!

  19. @anon 12(I think?)

    Are you stupid? The people playing Mega and Roll ARE teenagers. The robot Master would look stupid if they make them look like in the games.Dr. Light I argee with you there. Most of the complaints are that it's not enough like the game. Here a tip,if you want something to just be like Megaman 1,go play Megaman 1
