Resident Evil isn’t any stranger to live-action diversifications, however the Paul W.S. Anderson motion pictures aren’t the one game on the town. Netflix is launching its personal collection based mostly on the storied online game franchise, and its place within the timeline means beloved characters might show up.
Netflix simply introduced the collection with a teaser trailer, calling the show a “battle for survival” within the description. What little we’ve seen reveals the anticipated zombies, contaminated canine, and underground labs. The show is ready in New Raccoon City, which was initially destroyed on the conclusion of Resident Evil 2 and three. Those happen concurrently, and this new collection runs concurrently with Resident Evil Village as effectively.
Being set in the identical timeline, there’s a pure query of current Resident Evil characters showing within the show. Albert Wesker has already been confirmed, which could elevate followers’ eyebrows because the villain was blown up in a volcano throughout the occasions of Resident Evil 5. This was addressed by showrunner Andrew Dabb, as reported by GameSpot. “There is a very good reason that Wesker is back, and it does not come down to the fact that he was wearing lava-and-rocket proof clothes,” Dabb jokingly said.
It’s Resident Evil Village’s Lady Dimitrescu who’s on many followers’ minds although — she was voted as probably the most datable character in that game, in any case. The show runs parallel to Village, however that doesn’t imply she’ll essentially show up. “I don’t want to wedge characters in that don’t fit organically,” the showrunner continued. “I don’t want to chase a trend because the production cycles on these things are so long. I could be sitting here like, oh they just released a new Village expansion and the best character is someone else, and we hate the tall vampire lady now.” Dabb makes no guarantees, however a Lady Dimitrescu look isn’t off the desk.
Hopefully, Dabb’s prediction doesn’t come true, as a result of we’re certainly getting free DLC for Village sooner or later. That was introduced final October, however we haven’t heard something since.
