Marvel executive producer Stan Lee seemingly confirmed weeks ago that a sequel to the Disney/Marvel animated movie “Big Hero 6” is in their plan. Several theories emerged surrounding the plot that the sequel allegedly titled, “Big Hero 7” could take on, including the theory that Hiro’s brother, Tadashi is still alive and will play the villain. Read on to learn more about this scoop.
“Big Hero 6” fans were excited to hear the news that Lee seemingly confirmed that a sequel to “Big Hero 6” is one of their upcoming projects in the future following “Guardians of the Galaxy 2.” After Lee hinted on the possibility of seeing a sequel in the future, several fans began theorizing that “Big Hero 7” may see the return of Tadashi as the villain.
As previously reported, Tadashi’s remains were not found during the lab explosion, making other fans speculate that his character will still return on “Big Hero 7” and play the villain. Daniel Henney, who lent his voice to give life to Tadashi, previously said in an interview that he is looking forward to doing voiceover work for Tadashi should there be a “Big Hero 6” sequel.
“I think ‘Big Hero 6’ is something super special, and there will never be anything like that for me unless there is a sequel, Tadashi somehow widdles his way in,” Henney told Geeks of Doom.
The 35-year-old actor also entertained the idea of seeing Tadashi back to life. He even suggested this to directors, Chris Williams and Don Hall, while working on the first installment.
“I just kept saying, ‘What if he lives?’ ‘What if he makes it?’” Henney added.
While Henney did not reveal any details on whether or not rumors about Tadashi being alive and playing the villain on “Big Hero 7” are true, the “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” actor’s co-star Genesis Rodriguez, who did voiceover work for Honey Lemon aired her thoughts on doing a sequel.
“I doubt that they wouldn’t want another one. It was a huge success,” she told Screen Rant.
“Big Hero 6” earned a total of $651 million worldwide. If the Disney/Marvel animated film will get a sequel, then fans would see the return of Hiro, Baymax, Fred, Honey Lemon, Wasabi and Go Go Tamago.
