Marvel Studios Is Reportedly in Active Development on a POWER PACK Movie or TV Series
Last year we learned that Marvel Studios was interested in developing a movie based on their comic book property Power Pack. The comic centers around a grou of superpowered kids who embark on adventures to fight evil. It was director James Gunn who originally pitched this movie to Marvel.
When previously talking about the Power Pack movie, Kevin Feige said:
"Power Pack is a property that we've been interested in for a long time, for many years because we wanted to do something for families, something that's a little younger, Ant-Man has kind of become that franchise, certainly with Ant-Man and the Wasp, but Power Pack still is one of the many things that we discuss, wouldn't it be fun to do someday?"
According to a “reliable source” at MCU Cosmic, a Power Pack project is now in “active development” at Marvel Studios. At this point, it’s not known if this is going to be a theatrical film or a TV series that could end up on Disney+. This is kind of property seems like it would be a good fit for Disney+ because it’s something the younger fans are sure to enjoy.
Power Pack was created by Louise Simonson and June Brigman and first appeared in Power Pack Vol. 1 issue 1 in 1984.
The story focuses on Alex (12), Julie (10), Jack (8), and Katie Power (5) who meet an alien named "Whitey" Whitemane. This alien gives each of them one of his powers before his death, imbuing them with unique superpowers. These four kids end up becoming one the youngest superhero teams ever, and they fight to save the world from an alien invasion.
What do you think of Marvel developing a Power Pack film at some point in the future?
