Will There Be a Heroes Movie?

by at . Comments

Heroes has officially been canceled by NBC.

But talk of a movie - meant to wrap the series up to the satisfaction of fans - continues to persist. Might this actually come to fruition? Entertainment Weekly posed this question to creator Tim Kring. He replied:

No decision has been made. But the Heroes brand is an extremely broad premise. It was a premise about ordinary people, an undisclosed number of people all over the world, who were waking up to these extraordinary abilities. Any number of stories could happen around that. We never posited a single ending or a single premise.  It wasn’t about getting off of an island or stopping something from happening.

We told stories in volumes that had a beginning, a middle, and an end. Those volumes could go on and on and on with many different characters. As a result, that Heroes universe is something that can be tapped into again in many ways. Certainly, a movie is a way to do that and clearly, there is an entire world and a number of platforms that this property could live in. Movies sometimes need a little distance from the television show.

I am hopeful they will do a mini series or a tv movie to give some closure. After seeing Arrested Development coming back for a short season and a movie, I am keeping the fingers crossed. Do one thing right NBC.

I'm sitting here again for the fifth night and a row watching NBC. I'm in utter shock that I've watched 5 nights and haven't seen one show with the quality of cast or writers of Heros. Wow NBC YOU SUCK!!!!

I think it is awful Hero's was canceled. I am just now watching it on Netflix as well. It would be great if Tim Kring would come up with a movie, or something to "finalize it better. I am quiet sure it would be a block buster movie.

I'm one of those people watching Heroes on Netflix right now, just getting into Season 4. Everyone at my office who's watched that show was an avid fan, tuning in week after week, and they are all devastated (including me) that it was cancelled. The show is diversified, amazing, entertaining, exciting, thrilling....I could go on and on with adjectives describing it. The acting and chemistry between the actors is real and convincing. Their talent is fresh, new and welcoming. The scripts are great and reach that kid in all of us who loves to anticipate how they will "get out of this one". What's wrong with Television these days??? Everything is about reality shows now and I find it sickening. Shame on you, NBC, for disappointing so many viewers and not caring enough to give us closure.
