City of Heroes Coming to Big and Small Screens?
Visitors to Paragon City may become a bit more popular if Transformers and X-Men producer Tom DeSanto has anything to say about it. In a news snippet on Scifi.com it was revealed that the Hollywood mover has optioned the rights for the City of Heroes properties for an eventual feature film and possible television rights. According to the report the story will focus on the invasion of the Rikti that kicked off the game‘s debut storyline a few years ago.
Superfans however should not get too excited here, this is just an option deal, which means it may be under consideration but nothing is believed in production yet. Deals like this are made all the time and may never yield anything. That said, DeSanto has some experience with the genre with X-Men, X2 and the upcoming Teen Titan‘s movie he’s producing so maybe we’ll get a good treatment.
