Greg Grunberg has weighed in on reboot series Heroes Reborn, five years since it was axed after 13 episodes.
Grunberg portrayed mind-reading lawman Matt Parkman in both the original Heroes (a much more beloved project) and Reborn, but while chatting to NME recently, he shared his disappointment about the reboot.
"That was a bit disappointing for me as far as my character," he said of Reborn. "I was killing everyone. I'm like, 'What is Matt Parkman doing killing everyone?' That just didn't make sense.
"I felt like they were going in the right direction, character wise, and there were some great actors and everybody did a great job. But it just didn't flow the same way."
Still, Grunberg fancies a go at Heroes on the big screen, as he suggested: "I had the time of my life and loved that character so much. I would love to see it done on the big screen.
"If you gave it a big budget or big stories – let's do it as a feature film. Let's see Heroes the movie, and see what happens there."
Talking about the legacy of Heroes, which aired for four seasons between 2006 and 2010, Grunberg namechecked The Boys as a show that's pushing the genre forward.
"That show takes what we did in Heroes and takes it to the next level," he noted.
"It takes these characters and makes them so popular and powerful, that suddenly you're like, 'They're unstoppable'. I want to be on The Boys!"
