While a sequel to the hit Disney superhero animated film Big Hero 6 escaped us for almost a decade, the Saviors of San Francisco could potentially return to the big screen sometime in the future. And given some recent Disney acquisitions, a sequel to Big Hero 6 could finally see the link between the book’s title and some of the X-Men’s main characters.
Amazingly, seven whole years have passed since Big Hero 6 was first released in theaters, and there is still no indication of when another movie will hit the big screen. Between $ 657.9 million in ticket sales, links to the ever-popular Marvel Comics, incredibly marketable mascots, and the moving story of subversive superheroes captivating audiences and critics, the film had – and still has – written “The Potential Franchise.»
Our screens have not been complete without Big Hero 6 since the movie’s release in 2014. Big Hero 6: The Series, a 2D animated sequel, lasted three seasons on Disney XD and the Disney Channel from 2017 to 2021. What else, Baymax! – a spin-off animated series in the 3D style of the film – is expected to make its Disney + debut in 2022. But even those who were waiting for a new release of the franchise in cinemas had to wait.
Now and then, a new rumor emerges that Disney is developing a sequel to Big Hero 6, although it almost always leads nowhere. Recently, there have even been rumors of plans to introduce Big Hero 6 characters to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, this idea was quickly rejected by a Marvel Studios source. And while it is true that the first Big Hero 6 movie in its history was quite significant, Disney would have a lot of new material to work on after acquiring 21st Century Fox in 2019, and with it, the rights to the movie. X- The men.
Anyone familiar with Marvel’s Big Hero 6 comics will know that the title team has some great X-Men teams. Created by members of the Man of Action collective, also known as Steve Seagle and Duncan Rouleau, the original Big Hero 6 series consisted of Baymax, Hiro Takachiho, Go Go Tomago, and Honey Lemon, and Sunfire (created by Roy Thomas and Don Heck) and Silver.
Samurai (produced by Steve Gerber and Bob Brown). Sunfire also topped the team’s first title, with Sunfire and Big Hero Six competing on three tracks in late 1998. Sunfire (also known as Shiro Yoshida) is a first-time mutant. The 1970s. Although Sunfire did not yet need to be adapted for live-action, it was a recurring player in X-Men: The Animated Series and appeared in other Marvel cartoons and video games.
Meanwhile, Silver Samurai (also known as Keniuchio Harada) first appeared in Daredevil # 111 in 1974. Silver Samurai himself is a mutant and has strong ties to the X-Men legend, most notably Wolverine. As a result, the character made his live-action debut in Fox’s 2013 X-Men spin-off film, The Wolverine, starring both Haruhiko Yamanouchi and Ken Yamamura.
In the comics, Big Hero 6 was a group of superheroes approved by the Japanese government. Due to other needs, Sunfire and Silver Samurai eventually left the team. Sunpyre and Ebon Samurai, respectively, later replaced them. However, the Big Hero 6 cartoon of Chris Claremont and David Nakayama introduced Fredzilla and Wasabi-No Ginger to the team. Anyone who has seen the first Big Hero 6 movie already knows Baymax, Hiro, Go Go, Honey Lemon, Fred, and Wasabi. But now that Disney has taken over the rights to the X-Men, a sequel to Sunfire and Silver Samurai can finally prove it.
There are a few reasons why Disney would not want to do this; beware. Because even if the first Big Hero 6 were technically based on Marvel comics, you would never know it from marketing. It was only announced as a Disney movie, and Marvel’s name was nowhere in the ads. Also, the film itself was a very loose comic metaphor; the only prominent “Marvel” was the post-credit scene with a cameo by the late great Stan Lee, who -even then- was an elf, he added. Time. Big Hero 6 was pleased that it was one, and the presentation of the X-Men characters in a possible sequel could undermine that.
Instead, let’s not forget that Sunfire and Silver Samurai were founding members of Big Hero 6.
