Endgame directors pick up Battle of the Planets rights

Ed Willey

Over the weekend the Russo brothers held a panel to discuss all things Avengers, naturally, but things got interesting when talk turned to what lay in their future.

The pair announced they’ve secured the rights to Battle of the Planets (aka Gatchaman, aka G-Force) the widely loved 70s anime.

Whilst they said they plan on turning the property into a movie, they held off on committing to directorial duties.

The series, created by Tatsuo Yoshida, is widely credited with popularising anime outside of it’s native Japan, with its hyper-stylised look and super-energetic action it remains much loved to this day.

Given the series focus of a team of heroes protecting the Earth from threats across the universe, it would seem the Russo brothers have found their niche.
