Finn Wolfhard joins his brother, Nick Wolfhard for a brand new role for the Stranger Things actor.
According to Metro, the show is called New-Gen and is an animated Marvel series set in the future. The Witcher star Anya Chalotra is set to join Wolfhard for the show in which a seemingly perfect world is threatened by an evil overlord. It’s down to teen superheros to team together and eliminate the threat… pretty standard superhero stuff really.
New-Gen is based on the comic of the same name by J.D. Matonti, Chris Matonti and Julia Coppola, of A.P.N.G. Enterprises.
The show is planning on breaking down some barriers, with talks of it incorporating augmented reality which allows the viewers to infiltrate and interact with the show! It will be interesting to see how they pull this feature off.
New-Gen is in pre-production stage so we are a way off from seeing any actual trailers but this is something we will be keeping our eye on. With the acting talents of Wolfhard and Chalotra taking the lead roles we can expect big things from this series.
We saw some similar interaction recently with Netflix’s Black Mirror in which the viewer could make decisions and ultimately alter the outcome of the film. This received relatively high praise so could we be seeing the same with New-Gen? We’ll have to wait to find out.
