AMC 'Into the Badlands' martial arts series

AMC teased a couple of series during last night's Walking Dead season finale

One promised some kind of martial arts drama 'loosely based on Journey to the West'

This better be good. I don't wanna see some ghetto scenes where they jump off a staircase and are flying with a sword.

I want real martial arts with different styles in the mix (judo, muay thai, wushu w/e).

I am going to remain cautiously optimistic about this one.

I guess it would have been too tough and expensive to do a live action Dragonball. We got Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat though.

What about Dragon Ball Z: Light of Hope? :-0

Dragonball Evolution was a live action movie.
I mean a real one based directly off the manga. But with them doing animation again I guess that hope is fading unless Attack On Titan does well. I'm cringing on that one though and it's all Japanese cast in a medieval fantasy manga with virtually no Asians in it at all. Much like the laughable Patlabor or Gatchaman live films of the past couple years. And people go on about Hollywood...

Some updates came out of SD Comic Con

Hollywood Reporter article "Comic-Con: AMC's 'Into the Badlands' Debuts First Full Trailer, Stars Talk Martial-Arts Boot Camp"

Daniel Wu's a decent actor. I hope the story and characters have some substance.
The last thing we need is more martial arts just for the sake of martial arts.

Here's hoping it's not just Revolution with more and better choreographed fight scenes
