Shankar also told the outlet:

"acquired these (Devil May Cry) rights myself so the jabronis in Hollywood don't f*** this one up too." Shankar's financial investment should allow him more creative freedom, as he begins to build this wildly ambitious multiverse of his.

Shankar followed up this news with this tweet:

We'll let you know when we hear more about this news.
