People are very excited about Universal’s film potential. So we’re building on that excitement and trying to push things forward and move as quickly as possible.”
Since its debut in 2021, the series of invincible has conquered the public thanks to its originality and zero censorship when it comes to telling a superhero story, for which the film adaptation has been awaited by its fans for a long time.

And besides, his own Rogen is linked to the animated show invinciblesince it performs as Executive producer of the series and gives voice to the character by Allen the Alienso its closeness to the story could help create a live action very close to the original comic.
The movie hasn’t yet an estimated date to start productionso it is likely that the film will be delayed for several more years, since the priority for now is the animated series, which will premiere the second season of invincible in Amazon Prime Video and its success will cause streaming to want to release more seasons.
kirkman had anticipated that the animated series would need approximately 5 or 7 seasons to adapt the entire comic, so this would keep the creatives more busy and they would neglect live action for several years. “We have drawn a route of where the different stories will be located and how many seasons it would take us to open and close arcs, but it varies depending on how much we want to work or not,” explained the artist. “I can see myself involved in this project between 5 and 7 seasons. It is not something that is set in stone, it could last more or less, who knows? But there is potential to do 100 seasons.”
