Noir to Get Live Action Series on Starz!

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Female assassin anime Noir is getting the live action treatment thanks to Sam Raimi and Starz.

Why's this important to X-23 fans?
Well for now, it's about the closest we may get to something like an X-23 tv series on tv.

Until ABC, ABC Family, Disney, Fox, or Marvel finally push for an X-23 anything, they are just being one upped left and right by everyone else.
Bubblegum Crisis in 2012, Nikita on TV now, Noir coming soon from Sam Raimi, Sucker Punch being released soon, Buffy the Vampire Slayer being remade for theaters, among many more probably in the pipeline including Kick-ass 2.

The time for female protagonists is now. The market is primed, the timing is near perfect, and if they wait past 2013 they'll miss both a prime marketing point, and risk a chance of it becoming an oversaturated market.

Coming soon, the movie rant to end all rants, that talks about exactly what they should do for an X-23 movie, and what the release date should be. All speculative mind you until someone actually gets back to me about this if ever. (Yeah, like that's going to happen, but we shall see.)


  1. That's some pretty good news! I watched Noir a few years ago and actually bought it on DVD a month ago. It's a really great series, hopefully they get it right!

  2. Should be good with Raimi attached. I can't wait!
