There’s a thin line between perseverance and masochism, a time when you have to realise no matter how much you’ve tried – some things just aren’t meant to be.
Marvel hasn’t gotten that through their heads yet with Hulk despite two decent but misguided attempts at bringing the green meanie to the big screen. Now Capcom needs to learn the lesson as well as they still plan on foraging ahead with a third big screen take on their “Street Fighter” property.
In an interview with GamerLive.tv, Capcom’s VP of Strategic Planning and Business Development says that in regards to the “Street Fighter” movies, “hopefully” the company plans to “get one right sometime in the future.”
The comments come after 1994’s “Street Fighter” which was painfully bad and 2009’s “Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li” which proved even worse. In regards to the latter, the VP acknowledged the issues saying “Let’s just say there were a lot of people with different ideas as to what was the best route to take with that movie. A path was chosen, a result was had.”
Like all truly annoying optimists though, he plans to turn that setback into an learning lesson – “I think there are some learnings internally that we’ve taken away from that experience. I think you’ll see some clever live-action stuff that will excite our fans at some point in the future, based on Street Fighter. Let’s just say that the book is not yet done on Street Fighter film and video projects.”
