Legendary Entertainment, the company behind the Mass Effect movie, has finally released information about the project they have been working on, and one noticeable piece of intel is Seth Green will not be taking the role of Joker.
While fan backlash has been started over smaller things, it could be a clever swerve, or they are trying to put their own spin on it. The movie will also be an entirely new story as well as focus on male Commander Shepard – no timeline as to when, just the confirmation of what is not in it – so this won’t be an adaption of the soon to be finished trilogy. No other casting decisions – or indeed, what exclusions have been made certain, but Legendary – the company behind Inception and The Dark Knight, did state that Bioware were heavily involved in the process of making sure the story would fit in with the timeline.
With movies adapted from games being notoriously…meh, one of the greatest series in recent times now faces a challenge – will the new story, lack of two fan favourites in the form of FemShep and Seth Green be a hinderence, or will Legendary buck the trend? I’m desperately hoping for the latter.
