For this reason, it is still risky to predict the arrival of Meteoro streaming.

Now, it should be mentioned that this is not the first time that a Meteoro audiovisual project has been worked on with flesh and blood characters.

Already in 2008, the Wachowski sisters premiered a film starring Emile Hirsch in the role of Meteor.

This film was not well received by critics or the public.

At the time, Meteor, the movie, was branded as “boring”. He was also attacked for his visual style, which resembled a video game.

Let’s hope that this new one tried to dust off a classic story, now if it is not a failure in the audiences.

The director and the writers will have the responsibility to balance the story with the special effects to deliver a production that captures the subscribers of Apple TV +.
