This assertion has grown to be a popular one in recent years. “Marvel movies”They’re a powerful force that can be stopped and have a significant influence on pop culture. There are, however, signs of what might be coming in the future, especially if you’ve been paying attention to actual Comic book sales in America lately.

Assuming that today’s children will grow up to want to see their favorite manga characters in movies, it makes sense for a smart producer to grab the rights to some of the most beloved franchises. Jerry Bruckheimer has the most hits. Beverly Hills Cop, Top Gun, Bad Boys, ArmageddonAnd Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Bruckheimer is now a member of the manga (and other related-toys) wagon With Beyblade.
