Pikachu, Warner Bros. you choose as the next big franchise. Detective Pikachu 2 is already in preparation, more than three months before the date scheduled for the release of the first film in cinemas. This is a clear sign of confidence on the part of the studio and this means that they are betting heavily on their Pokemon live-action universe for the future. It is a property that has proven for more than two decades that it has a captive global audience. With this in mind, it makes sense that they have confidence in the future of this franchise.
According to a new report, the screenwriter Oren Uziel was called to write the scenario of . Pikachu 2 . The details of the story are currently kept secret. Although that makes sense, given that the first film has not yet been released and that it is becoming increasingly clear that there are big secrets that the Yellow Pokémon and its human partner will discover. Previous credits from Uziel include Men In Black: International 22 Jump Street and The Cloverfield Paradox . Admittedly, it has not been so successful, but it would be difficult to impose it precisely. Uziel was also exploited to write the film Supergirl for Warner Bros.

To date, there have been more than 20 animated films, hundreds of animated TV episodes, several very successful video games and the card game.

Ryan Reynolds is on hand to make Pikachu's voice heard in the first film, with a cast that also includes Judge Smith, Kathryn Newton, Ken Watanabe, Suki Waterhouse, Rita Ora and Bill Nighy. At the moment, it is difficult to know who, if any, would come back for the future. We have also recently heard rumors that a movie about Pokemon Red and Blue is being created and would be related to the universe, but would be its own thing. If this is true, Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures already have the basic elements of the cinematic universe Pokemon. While they will likely wait to see what Detective Pikachu will do before actually going forward, they are at least prepared for this to be their next big cash cow.
