Published 02/09/2023, 4:30 AM EST

Although it has not made it to the books, a widely accepted rule after becoming a Marvel superstar is to find an equally exciting Netflix project to work on. And if that is not the case, then Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, and Ryan Reynolds signing up for Netflix projects after their successful Marvel ventures can only be described as a work of God. Following their footsteps, Academy Award-winning actress Brie Larson is in talks to star in a hopefully stellar adaptation of the Gears of War.

Is Brie Larson starring in Gears of War?

Gears of War, much like the material it presents, has a vast fanbase spanning over five games, numerous novels, and comic books. Given its popularity, it comes as no surprise that Netflix wants to make a live-action adaptation of it. While many streamers are coming up with their live-action productions of video games, the OTT Mughal was among the first to try it out with The Witcher.

Gears of War has no confirmed names as of now, but Dave Bautista, being the gamer that he is, has been hinting at starring in a video game adaptation as reported by Giant Freakin Robot. Brie Larson is yet to greenlight the project, but she would be the perfect casting for Reyna Diaz or any of the other powerful female characters in the franchise.
