Your Questions Answered: The Comic-Con Film Panel

Thank you to everyone who came out to our pre-production film panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con!  Many of our fans tweeted questions for our panelists that we were unable to answer during the panel – read on for answers to some of the more popular questions.


Will it just be an adaptation of the first game, second game, or a completely new story?

It will focus on Commander Shepard’s journey, centering around the story of the original Mass Effect game.

How are you going to address the element of ‘choice’ that the players have in the game?

The writer is weaving a path through Shepard’s decisions that best supports the narrative of the movie and the motivations of its characters.

Will it be a trilogy?

We are really focused on making this a great movie, so we’ll see where it takes us.  We have to get the first one right to know whether there will be more.

Will Seth Green portray Joker, the character he voiced in the game?

No casting decisions have been made yet.

Will the movie be focused on Shepard?


If the movie is focused on Shepard, will it be the male Shepard or the female Shepard?

Will BioWare allow plot / character changes?

Would you consider Daft Punk to do the soundtrack?
