Synopsis
Akira is set in the post-apocalypse Neo-Tokyo of 2030, a vast metropolis built on the ashes of a Tokyo annihilated by an apocalyptic blast of unknown power that triggered World War III. The lives of two streetwise teenage friends, Tetsuo and Kaneda, change forever when dormant paranormal abilities begin to waken in Tetsuo, who becomes a target for a shadowy government operation, a group who will stop at nothing to prevent another catastrophe like that which leveled Tokyo. And at the core of their motivation is a raw, all-consuming fear: a fear of someone -- or something -- of unthinkably monstrous power known only as... Akira. Note: Won the 1984 Kodansha Manga Award for best general manga, won the Harvey Award for Best American Edition of Foreign Material in 1993 and was nominated for the Harvey for Best Graphic Album of Previously Published Work in 2002.

Director does not confirm if he has signed on to proposed film Director Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok, Boy, Hunt for the Wilderpeople) commented in an interview with media news website IGN on Tuesday about reports of him negotiating to direct Warner Brothers' live-action Akira film project.

He said that he would not be interested in remaking the 1988 Katsuhiro Otomo film, but would be interested in "do[ing] an adaptation of the books," referring to Otomo's original six-volume manga. Regarding casting, he said, "Actually Asian teenagers would be the way to do it for me and probably no, not, like no name, I mean sort of unfound, untapped talent." Both the recent live-action Ghost in the Shell film and Death Note Netflix movie have drawn criticism for alleged whitewashed casting.

Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski has admitted to using the pseudonym “Akira Yoshida” to write multiple comic books in the mid-2000s, as reported Tuesday by Bleeding Cool. This revelation has caused waves on social media, with observers questioning both the business ethics implications of Cebulski using a pen name as a writer while employed as a Marvel editor, and criticism that a Caucasian using a Japanese name to write manga-influenced comics is tantamount to yellowface; especially given the continued lack of diversity among creators in the mainstream North American comic book market. Marvel declined comment on the situation when reached by CBR. RELATED: C.B. Cebulski Named Marvel Comics Editor-In-Chief Cebulski was announced on Nov. 17 as Marvel’s new Editor-in-Chief, following Axel Alonso, who had held the position since 2011.
