Pokémon – Detective Pikachu Could Be The Beginning Of A Cinematic Pokémon Universe!
“Detective Pikachu” may be one of the hottest movies this year. After initial skepticism, most Pokémon fans are now looking forward to the unusual story that we are already experiencing on the big screen in May. New rumors suggest that the movie may just be the beginning and we may soon see a whole cinematic Pokémon universe in the movies!
All a question of money
It may not be obvious to everyone, but we may be in one of the most important moments in film history right now. Marvel and Disney have created something with their cinematic universe that was never thought possible before. A total of 22 films can be found in the studio. Which still stands alone in connection and thus has created a new narrative medium for storytelling.
This principle tries to imitate other film studios, but not always with success. So far, Warner Bros. and DC have not really been able to get all the fans excited. As they’ve been trying to bring the “Justice League” to the screen after only a few movies. But such a business requires work and building of characters, say critics and fans.
“Detective Pikachu”, which will appear in Germany in May in the cinema, could also be the beginning of a cinematic universe. In an interview with IGN, producer Ali Mendes of Legendary Entertainment talked about the franchise’s possibilities:
[Pokémon] is such a rich universe. There are so many ways to get into the world. We’ll try to get the first movie right and if we make it, we’ll see where it goes. But there are definitely many possibilities! “
Of course, this statement does not officially confirm anything. But rumors about a filmic Pokémon universe have been around for quite some time. According to insiders, there has already been talked about a “Pokémon: Red and Blue”. The movie based on the events of the first Pokémon game. Furthermore, it would be almost too bad if “Detective Pikachu”. would remain the only cinematic entry in the world of pocket monsters.
Everything depends of course on the success of “Detective Pikachu”, which will be released on May 9, 2019, in Germany.
