During Sunrise's panel at New York Comic Con, it was announced that Tiger and Bunny will receive a live-action adaptation.

Brian Grazer and Ron Howard (Imagine Entertainment) have partnered with Sandy Climan and Annmarie Bailey (All Nippon Entertainment Works), and Masayuki Ozaki (Bandai Namco Pictures) to produce the film. Imagine Entertainment's president Erica Huggins will oversee the new film. The director and screenwriter have yet to be announced.

"During the deal talks, our chief focus was to ensure continuing involvement by the original creators to maintain quality and flexibility which would allow the original work to continue," said Ozaki.

Tiger & Bunny is an original anime by Sunrise that aired in 2011. Satou Keiichi (The Big O, Shingeki no Bahamut: Genesis) directed the anime. It also received two anime movies.

I don't really know what to say about this, especially since I haven't seen the anime of Tiger & Bunny yet.

HIGH chance for season 2 now <3

Best of luck to them I guess.

But why?

It won't sell, it's not a popular series for the masses, which live action films appeal to.

Meh, I was hoping for another season rather than a live action film. Most likely will not be watching unless I read some good reviews about it.

Well, I for one think that this could be very good. It's a great satire on all the superhero movies and the abundance of product placements that are always included in them. The only problem I see for American audiences it the title, "Tiger & Bunny" . People will think it is a "Winnie the Pooh" movie :-) But a good promotion will fix that. I will look forward to this.

This could be great or terrible. I have no idea. Of all the anime shows turned Hollywood, this one has the best chance of not sucking, I think. It doesn't need to keep the same plot, only the same character development - and since the cast is so diverse it doesn't need to whitewash the cast.

Please don't whitewash the cast. Please. Let Kotetsu be our scruffy Asian middle-aged daddy.

I saw the anime. So... Maybe they will be using real companies to represent fictional superheroes. Oh, wait that happens on the anime... But Now American companies.

If we see a re-imagining in the same sense as All You Need is Kill this could actually be pretty good. But I feel a big reason for this series in particular being used is the current superhero trend, so its also possible that this is being done just because it is something that hasn't been done yet, meaning there might not be very much effort put forth.

I am excited, yet very concerned.

I'm conflicted on this one because live-action superhero movies are already such a diluted product. Also, I personally found the anime to be too much on the cheesy side for my tastes (I ended up dropping it). That being said, I think there's actually a good amount of potential for the Hollywood movie machine to crank out a good live-action movie with the concept of Tiger & Bunny.

Seems like Hollywood is getting desperate in the search for more source material to make terrible superhero movies of.

Yeah, because Dragonball Evolution, Speed Racer, and the predevelopment Hell that was supposed to be the Akira movie were such rousing success, why not make an attempt with THIS flash-in-the-pan endeavor? Best case scenario, it will be as quickly forgotten as Final Fantasy Spirits Within.

This has potential to be great. The next big "meta" thing considering meta tongue-in-cheek superhero films like Kick-ass, Chronicle or Birdman have been very well received.

Hoping they don't fuck up.

If they get good scriptwriters they might be able to do this. MAYBE.

Heard about this the other day. Not sure if I should feel excited or terrified this will end up like crap. I'd prefer season 2 but for now let's wait and see

All You Need is Kill was quite good, with non-cg mech suites & the plot.

T&B might work if they focus on comedy & campiness, like a long ad for sponsors, but it's tough to pull off.

Attack on Titan 1 was pretty ok as a sidestory for the campiness.

Honestly, I think this is a good idea.

Hollywood does well with superhero concepts, and Tiger and Bunny has a great one. Hollywood did well with Edge of Tomorrow, which was more of a very loose adaptation of All You Need is Kill if anything. If they can do with Tiger and Bunny what they did with All You Need is Kill, it should be fine.

A superhero live-action movie is not a terrible idea with Hollywood budgeting. Eden of Tomorrow adapted All You Need is Kill well recentishly, so there's hope.

...BUT WHERE THE FUCK IS THE THIRD ANIME MOVIE/A CONCLUSION TO THE ANIME?
