X-SOLDIER
Default Netflix Castlevania Series!?!

Developed by Frederator Networks, written by Warren Ellis, and produced by Adi Shankar. Colour me intrigued but also completely and utterly baffled.

I look forward to hearing more about this.

If the show is bad, I won't be surprised.

If the show is good, I'll be surprised.

If the show is good and FEELS like Castlevania, I'll enter a state of bliss.

Well, if it's bad, it won't be because of the writer. Everything I've ever read by Ellis was fantastic.

Furthermore Adi Shankar usually puts his money behind solid projects that he legitimately believes in. I don't think I've seen anything yet with him attached that has failed to deliver. Especially in terms of authenticity and passion. At the very least we get something that's incredibly entertaining


That said I wonder where, when and what the story will be. There is a lot of room to work with here as far as the Castlevania timeline is concerned. Even though the earlier stages of the games lore is a bit weak they really do make a decent story in the later additions and the current "ending" for the Lore in regards to Soma and Dracula is decent at least.

As bad ass as Alucard is I hope they don't take the lazy way out and have it be based around him.

Well, it comes with practice. I can think of nothing.
I do not feel the need to occupy my mind with nonsense, just to avoid thinking about what really matters.

This Adi Shankar sounds like he is high on something, but you certainly get the impression that he puts genuine effort and passion into his project. That's assuring.

Here's a video of his that I have shared a lot, but it really makes his speech style and cadence in that interview immediately more understandable.

true and true!

also, yep, seen this on Facebook (I got a Castlevania facebook page on my feed) and I'm intrigued, too. I'm also apprehensive, because Castlevania seems to have a hit-and-miss track record and I hope they don't shit the bed as I'd love to Netflix the shit outta this. Here's hopin'!
