The live-action film adaptation of Yukito Kishiro’s cyberpunk sci-fi manga series, Battle Angel Alita, finally hit theaters back in February. Directed by Robert Rodriguez and co-written by James Cameron, Alita: Battle Angel (as the movie was retitled) featured The Maze Runner trilogy’s Rosa Salazar as Alita, a cyborg who awakens in a brand-new body with no memory of who she is or what she’s designed to do.
Alita: Battle Angel Star, Roza Salazar wants to play the role of Alita until her “last breath.” She also tells that the studio should develop more “Alita” projects in the future so that she could be the part of it.
Salazar said that “Thanks to performance capture technology,” she probably could continue playing the cyborg character for the rest of her life. Though there has not been any talk about the sequel of this movie, Salazar honestly wants to be a part of it and encourages the audience to make some noise about the sequel so, the creators take some notes from that and recreate the sequel.
Alita: Battle Angel also stars Jennifer Connelly (Top Gun: Maverick), Academy Award winner Mahershala Ali (Moonlight, Green Book), Ed Skrein (Deadpool), and Jackie Earle Haley.
Talking about the success of Alita: Battle Angel earned modest popularity. It had a mix of positive to mediocre reviews. But saying that, the storyline was overshadowed by the sci-fi visuals. And visuals are what, most attracted the audiences.
Though, many critics argued that the film doesn’t have a proper ending for a sequel, but still the creators wanted to make multiple sequels for the movie.
