It’s been revealed by creator Robert Kirkman that the Invincible live-action movie is still in the works over at Skybound Entertainment and Universal Pictures. This was revealed by Kirkman during an interview with ComicBook.com.
Kirkman is the creator of the comic book, which has gone on to have an animated series over at Amazon Prime Video. The animated series has proven to be incredibly popular with Prime Video subscribers and comic book fans.
The show is now in its second season. It was actually just revealed that the second season will be released towards the end of 2023.
However, it was revealed back in 2017 that Skybound Entertainment had bought the rights for an Invincible live-action movie, which I know fans of the comic book and the animated series would be very interested in watching.

This movie would be happening over at Universal Pictures. However, since the announcement was made, we’ve heard nothing about this project, which doesn’t tend to be good news.
However, Kirkman has now confirmed that the movie is in development, is still happening, and its production might be gaining steam.
He revealed this during a recent interview with ComicBook.com, and the comic book writer stressed that the film adaptation of the series is still in the pipeline.
Although he didn’t commit to when any substantial new updates on the movie might come about, Kirkman added that the success of the TV series has only helped when it comes to moving the project along at Universal.
Why has this project taken so long?

Here’s what Kirkman had to say on the matter:
We’re very much still working on that. Sometimes movies take a little bit longer. I think it’s safe to say, if anything, the show has just helped that immensely. People are very excited about that movie potential at Universal. So we’re riding that excitement and trying to push things forward as quickly as possible.
Currently, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are still attached to write the Invincible live-action movie. And while Rogen and Goldberg have plenty of other projects that they’re juggling at the moment, Rogen himself is still tied to Invincible in a pretty direct manner.
Rogen is an executive producer on the Invincible Prime Video series and also happens to voice the character, Allen the Alien, in the show.
