Magic: The Gathering Netflix Series Confirmed With Avengers Endgame Directors

by Liana Ruppert

Netflix has their The Witcher series coming later this year and now it looks like they’re going even deeper in gaming, tabletop, and fantasy with a new anime series based off the Magic: The Gathering universe. Even better? Joe and Anthony Russo are leading the charge! 

A fan-driven podcast also found the US copyright catalog for two seasons of the show by Netflix, Wizards of the Coast, and Hasbro, seen below: 

“We have been huge fans and players of Magic: The Gathering for as long as it has been around, so being able to help bring these stories to life through animation is a true passion project for us,” the Russo brothers said in a public statement following the reveal. 

Given the massive amount of success they’ve had on the big screen, seeing their take on the MtG universe is exciting! I’m also a bit relieved that they are going the anime route instead of live-action, an easy way to retain the magic without erring on the side of “too corny.” 

Excited to see what the Russos have up their sleeves? Hit us up over on Twitter @PrimaGames with your thoughts!
