A rumor has been going around social media today that Funko, developer of the popular line of Pop vinyl figures, is gearing up with Warner's to release a feature length film based around a shared universe of Pop figures, ala The LEGO Movie.
Daniel Richtman of Super Bro Movies has been tweeting details of what could possibly be included in the film, which would feature multiple properties like Marvel, DC, Star Wars, Stranger Things, Mortal Kombat, and more.
This would be a pretty cool move for Funko, and it would be pretty fun to see all of these different universes running around as Pops onscreen. Funko has produced a ton of animated shorts in the past featuring Marvel, Star Wars, DC, and other characters.
Some characters already confirmed for the Funko movie: Darth Vader, Deadpool, Hellboy, Harley Quinn, Wonder Woman, Care Bears, My Little Pony.

For now though, it is just a rumor. The LEGO Movie was such a game-changer, that it was inevitable that someone else would come along and do something similar. Will Pops running around talking translate to screen well? Would actors and actresses reprise their roles if their Pop figures are featured? Would the Pops have mouths???
For now, we can only speculate. If this becomes official, with things like a director or casting announcements, we will be sure to bring them to you.
