Unfortunately it was not this time …
Operation Big Hero has cultivated a legion of fans combining the world of superheroes and Japanese culture. Rumors have surfaced recently about a possible live-action version, but according to the Variety portal, that shouldn’t happen.
The original animation was based on old Marvel comics from 1998 written by Scott Lobdell and the arts by Gus Vasquez.
Soon, although unlikely, many people gave some credence to the rumor that the characters were part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After all, after the additions of WandaVision and with the multiverse ever closer, anything can happen.
But it seems that is not the case. At least for a while. Variety has verified the information with Disney sources who have denied that such a project is in production.
It should be remembered that after three seasons, Operation Big Hero: The Series recently ended on Disney XD. In December, Disney announced new animation focused exclusively on Baymax for Disney +, which means franchise plans remain in the animation realm.
A different take on the characters in the more mature Marvel series could confuse casual consumers of the brand, which Disney has shied away from in several divisions.
