A rumor has been circulating on social media that the ‘Berserk’ franchise created by Kentaro Miura, will get a live-action movie from Netflix.
The rumors of anime and manga franchises getting a movie adaptation are not new. This time Berserk, the dark franchise created by Kentaro Miura, has become the victim of these rumors. It’s been a few days, a rumor has been circulating on social that Berserk, the dark franchise, will get a live-action movie adaptation on Netflix. While this comes as big news for Berserk fans, it is one hundred percent fake. We should make it clear that Netflix is not producing a live-action Berserk movie.
The rumors began when an Instagram user Guts CG shared a wondrous image which many believed was a poster for an upcoming Berserk short film to arrive on Netflix later this year. The user did write “This is a Joke” at the bottom of the photo caption, but many fans missed this and fall into the trap of this fake news. You can check the poster here:

We know that Berserk fans are excited about the anime return on small screens, they’ll definitely have to wait a bit longer.
