In the past, Netflix has partnered with Dark Horse Comics in both directions. And more are on the way. This is a comprehensive breakdown of each Dark Horse Comics series, movies, and series that you can currently watch on Netflix.
Dark Horse Comics, founded 35 years ago has grown into one of the largest comic publishers in the world. It is now aggressively moving to the television and movie market just like its counterparts.
Netflix is helping them to achieve this. The streaming giant has already released several adaptations and will do so more aggressively in the future thanks to an exclusive deal that was struck in 2019.
Netflix Released January 25th 2019, 2019
Mads Mikkelsen was most well-known for NBC's Hannibal. This was the first Dark Horse Comics movie to be brought to Netflix.
The action movie directed by Jonas Åkerlund with a soundtrack provided by Deadmau5 didn't do particularly well with critics with it only carrying a 19 on Metacritic. Although the film has received much more positive reviews from the public, the movie remains very basic.
Status: Season 3 Renewed
The most popular Dark Horse Comic title to make the jump over to Netflix so far is The Umbrella Academy which was produced by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá.
It tells the story about former adopted children heroes who come together after the death of their father. Steve Blackman acts as showrunner.
There have been 3 seasons, with the first season arriving on Netflix in February 2019.
Netflix is expected to release season 3 in 2022.
Produced and produced by 88 Pictures, the animated TV program will adapt Samurai Rabbit comics. (It seems that this is Netflix's equivalent of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles).
It follows the adventures of a teenage rabbit, who is a descendant from Miyamoto Usagi, a great warrior.
Darren Barnet is among those who have been cast as voice actors for the series, along with Shelby Rabara and Aleks Le.
Andrew Dabb, based upon Matt Wagner's comic, will write and host this series of action-fantasy.
It will be the story of a fencer with a double life who becomes an assassin to get revenge on his love. But rather than taking their place, he enters the criminal underground.
Kevin Corrigan and Jaime Ray Newman are joining the board as stars.
Blake Lively stars in this adaptation of Diablo Cody. Lady Killer was a comic-book series by Jamie S. Rich and Joelle Jones. It was first published in 2015.
Lady Killer tells the tale of Lady Killer, a 1950s-era housewife hiding a dark secret.
It will be the story of Alice Waddington, the daughter and victim of a murder scientist who uncovers his tragic death in deep-sea research facilities. Alice Waddington is the Paradise Hills director and will be directing this feature movie.
The project is still in the early stages of development, as at late 2021.
Tiffany Haddish has signed on to the part of Trine. McG will direct this thriller.
It is about a young girl who has psychic powers and a police officer with no skills to help solve criminal cases.
