We will still need to wait more than a month before we get to see the first sequel to the live-action Fullmetal Alchemist movie but Mackenyu is clearly hyped up for his upcoming project. The One Piece star shared his thoughts on playing Scar in the first sequel Fullmetal Alchemist: Final Chapter - The Avenger Scar. In addition to that, we got a new still of the Scarred Man in the highly anticipated film!
The official Fullmetal Alchemist movie Twitter account shared a new behind-the-scenes look at Mackenyu filming his scenes with Ryosuke Yamada who plays Edward Alfric in the movies. The video also features the Pacific Rim: Uprising actor talking about how he approached his role as Scar in the live-action films.
It's great to see Mackenyu and Ryosuke Yamada filming the first fight between Scar and Edward Alfric which is expected to appear in Fullmetal Alchemist: Final Chapter - The Avenger Scar. However, it also looks like a dangerous encounter for Edward considering that the Scarred Man is believed to be a serial killer who targets alchemists. But what made a seeming seril killer who targets alchemists. But what made a former priest go violent? We'll learn the truth later in May.
We also got a new still of Scar as he faces off against Edward. It's a clear look at the scar on his face and we could find out how he got the wound in the first place.
The Fullmetal Alchemist films will bring back Ryosuke Yamada as Edward Elric, Atomu Mizuishi as Alphonse Elric, Tsubasa Honda, as Winry Rockbell, and Dean Fujioka as Roy Mustang.
Fullmetal Alchemist: Final Chapter - The Avenger Scar will premiere in Japan on May 20, 2022. Fullmetal Alchemist: Final Chapter - The Last Transmutation is scheduled for release on June 24, 2022.
