The new Mega Man animated series is still a couple years away, but that won't stop its creative force from talking about it. Sitting down with Comicbook.com, Man of Action Studios dishes on what they hope to do with the character.

You’re other big project, obviously, is the Mega Man animated series. How did that project come about? And I know it’s still early in the production process, but is there anything you can tease about that project?
Rouleau: We’re working with Capcom and Dentsu Entertainment. Dentsu is a company that we’ve worked with in the past on Monsuno, specifically. We also developed a few other project ideas with them over the years. So when they approached us about doing this, I knew that I loved Mega Man. He has a deep mythology. So, we just synthesized a lot of things from his history. And yeah, we are in development right now, so we can’t go into the direction it will take.
Kelly: Our goal is to make a show that we, ourselves, would want to watch. We want a show that’s fun for us. We’re fans of the Mega Man character, so we take our love and look at the DNA of it, and go, “How do we make this cool?” So the goal is to have a really fun and exciting show.
Do you have a release date targeted?
Casey: It’s too early to say, but I do know that Mega Man’s 30th anniversary is in 2017.
