MAGIC: THE GATHERING Animated Series From AVENGERS: ENDGAME Directors In The Works At Netflix

Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo will executive produce a new animated series based on the best-selling fantasy card game, Magic: The Gathering, for Netflix. More past the jump...

Netflix has commissioned a new animated series based on Magic: The Gathering, and Avengers: Endgame duo Joe and Anthony Russo are on board as executive producers.

The Russos, who are long-time fans and players of the fantasy trading card game, will be joined by Henry Gilroy (Star Wars Rebels, Star Wars: The Clone Wars) and Jose Molina (The Tick, Agent Carter) as lead writers and co-exec producers. The series will reportedly focus on an all-new storyline, but it will involve M:TG's famed Planeswalkers "as they contend with stakes larger than any one world can hold."

"Magic is a beloved global franchise with a massively engaged fan base that has only continued to grow over the last 25 years,” said John Derderian, head of anime programming at Netflix. "There’s no one better suited to bring this story to audiences around the world than Joe and Anthony Russo, whose talent for genre storytelling is unmatched, as demonstrated by their central role in creating some of the biggest box office hits of all time."



Apparently, the the long-term plan is for Netflix and Hasbro-owned Wizards of the Coast to expand the anime show into a larger franchise featuring multiple series.
