Devil May Cry will join Adi Shankar's Castlevania television show universe

November 16, 2018 1 min read

Castlevania executive producer Adi Shankar has told IGN that he has acquired the adaptation rights for the Devil May Cry franchise and that the two properties will be part of a multiverse of his own creation. Shankar also thanks fans for the positive reception for Castlevania season 2 on Netflix, which he credits for a quick third season renewal. Shankar is calling this multiverse project a "bootleg multiverse."

A bit of a strange title if you ask me, since Shankar emphasizes that he legally has the rights. As he tells IGN, he "acquired these [Devil May Cry] rights [himself] so the jabronis in Hollywood don’t f*** this one up too." In case you don't recognize this non-jabroni from anything outside of Castlevania, Shankar is also responsible for "Bootleg Universe" short films based on The Punisher (with Thomas Jane), Venom, and Power Rangers.
