In one series of the tweetsKojima revealed that the project – which could be a movie, rather than a game – will be “a friend (male/female) with a special team of detectives going up against the legendary heroes in the backstage. school.” Boys, based on the comic books by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, sees an underground vigilante team engaged in a corrupt, corporate-owned superhero business.
“I watched a few episodes that were broadcast when I was about to start a project that I had been cherishing for a long time, and paused because of the same concept,” revealed Kojima. “I thought of Mads as the lead,” he said, referring to Death Stranding star and lover Mrs. Mikelsen. When is Kojima Not think about Mads?
“Today, as superheroes continue to be mass-produced in the entertainment industry, this drama has to be a radically hardcore action series, neither hero nor villain, with the setting of an amazing black joke and a worldview that is the exact opposite of what we Kojima say. Kojima has long harbored ambitions as a filmmaker, and his studio Kojima Productions say it’s exploring “Various possibilities with games, movies, and music.”
“The idea is the same, a black ‘anti-hero’ story where a superhero and a human go head to head,” Kojima said a little later, after catching up on the first eight episodes of the season. “But the setting, the gimmick, and the tone [of The Boys] very different from what I thought about my previous project. “
