Ever since the hit television series Heroes came to an end, fans have been calling for the cast to reunite for either a new season, a one-off special or even a Heroes movie. Unfortunately we have been waiting and waiting with nothing coming our way, until now.
It was recently confirmed that NBC had given the go ahead for a new Heroes television series which would be titled Heroes Reborn and focus on a whole new group of heroes. It has been suggested that we could see a few of the original Heroes characters making cameo appearances in Heroes Reborn and it has now been confirmed that there are even bigger plans for the Heroes franchise.
It has been confirmed that original Heroes stars Hayden Panettiere, who played the role of Claire Bennett in the hit series, as well as Milo Ventimiglia, who was the main protagonist Peter Petrelli, have both signed on to star in a planned Heroes movie. The idea is that we will see a number of original Heroes characters sharing the big screen with the new stars, as the old guard hand over to the new comers.
A source explained, “Now that NBC have given the new Heroes Reborn the green light, they decided that it would be a great idea to see the original Heroes characters leading the way for the new characters, before signing off. We will no doubt see them again in guest roles on the new Heroes series.”
