Godzilla vs Kong’s Adam Wingard directing live-action Thundercats movie

April 2nd, 2021 by Marc Comments

Last we heard about a Thundercats movie was in September 2018 (here) when we heard a He-Man and Thundercats shared movieverse was in development.

We’re not entirely sure of that’s still the case but what we do know is that Godzilla vs Kong’s Adam Wingard will be directing it.

Thundercats is a series based around a group of cat-like humanoids caught on a planet called Thundera and ruled by an evil monster called Mumm-Ra and is one of the great iconic franchises from the 1980s that has lived well into the modern world.

Wingard’s movie will take the original comic series which ran from 1985-1989 and develop a story that he’s had in mind for a long time that takes place after the events in that series.

Little else is known about the series for now but altogether now… Thundercats, Hooooooooooooo!!!

Are you excited for a Thundercats movie? I know I certainly am… let me know your thoughts, gang.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
