...I didn't even know this was a thing.

Kind of surprised there's no confirmation for the rest of the Bronze Saints, if they're even in it.

Mackenyu is starring as Seiya, a street orphan and the title hero of the franchise. When a mystical energy known as Cosmo awakens in him, Seiya embarks on a journey to conquer the ancient Greek armor of Pegasus and choose his side in a preternatural battle for the fate of Sienna (Iseman), a young girl who struggles to control her godly powers.

That's not what the original manga is about.
Let me guess, they're also making Andromeda Shun a woman again because "only women can wear pink" right?

If Sony's working on it, that's a no go from me.

Yeah, he did. For movies and TV shows. That's why he hasn't died in the Snowpiercer TV show either, which is the latest high-profile project he's been in so far.

He's playing Saori (Sienna?)'s grandfather so he'll probably die right away, as Sean Bean is wont to do

Very likely; also, the "Sienna" and "Alman Kiddo" stuff makes me think they're taking some things from the horrible Netflix CG show, so the "Shun as a woman" thing is not far-fetched. I'll watch out of morbid curiosity, but from the plot alone we already know this movie is gonna be trash. Also produced by Sony, so there's that too.

Apparently the fights are choreographed by the same folks who did Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, so if nothing else, the fights oughta look good.

The most important question about this live action Saint Seiya is if Sean Bean is going to die in it?

Can this Movie break the Masami Kurumada curse in America? I hope so but not likely...

Maybe it will get an exception by not being purely American. The director is Polish, and one of the producers is China’s AGRF (A Really Good Film Company, which remains to be seen). So it’s an international production rather than a pure Hollywood one.

"I've turned down stuff. I've said, 'They know my character's going to die because I'm in it!'. I just had to cut that out and start surviving, otherwise it was all a bit predictable,"


So yeah, I think Sean Bean is gonna be fine in this.
