DETECTIVE PIKACHU 2 Will Reportedly Be The Next Film In The Franchise; Spinoffs To Follow

Detective Pikachu, AKA the movie to break the video game curse, will be followed by a direct sequel. This will then lead to a more diverse slate for the newfound cinematic universe. Check it out...

Pokemon: Detective Pikachu managed to deliver solid box office returns during its opening weekend, especially against the juggernaut that is Avengers: Endgame. The latest reports regarding the status of the franchise points to a direct sequel being the next film in the Pokemon cinematic expansion. 

In the same way that Iron Man 2 was fast-tracked in response to the success of its predecessor, ComicBook.com reports that Legendary is hoping to do the same by getting a sequel out as soon as possible before banking on riskier endeavors.

Earlier this year The Hollywood Reporter announced the involvement of Oren Uziel (Sonic The Hedgehog) to write the screenplay for the sequel. It has also been reported by GWW that a Red and Blue adaptation is in the works. Factoring in the ComicBook.com report, it seems as though fans now have a better idea of Legendary's upcoming slate.

Are you excited for the upcoming sequel?
