A new Bootleg Universe short film from producer Adi Shankar has been revealed: Mr. Rogers: A War Hero.
The film, which is the Bootleg Universe’s spin on TV icon Mister Rogers, is the latest of a series of popular and sometimes controversial takes on popular IPs. Previous installments have included The Punisher: Dirty Laundry, Venom: Truth in Journalism, and Power/Rangers.
“When I was young my heroes had magazords, adamantium claws, and vampire slaying whips. They were spectacular and unlocked my imagination. But after the events of the past few years my heroes have changed, and now anyone who selflessly enriches a child’s life is a hero to me. This entry is a love letter to a man who showed us what being a good neighbor looks like,” said Bootleg Universe creator Adi Shankar.
