Comic-Con 2020: Did Sharkboy and Lavagirl have sex? Fans can't wait to see them in Netflix's 'We Can Be Heroes'
Director Robert Rodriguez revealed that adult versions of Sharkboy and Lavagirl would appear in his upcoming Netflix movie 'We Can Be Heroes' and the fans are losing it
The 2005 children's action movie, 'The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D', by Robert Rodriguez is finally getting a sequel (sort of). During [email protected], the veteran director revealed that adult versions of Sharkboy (Taylor Lautner) and Lavagirl (Taylor Dooley) would appear in his upcoming Netflix movie, 'We Can Be Heroes', starring Pedro Pascal and Priyanka Chopra and revolving around two generations of superheroes, including 11 super-powered kids.
While that's surprising enough, Rodriguez raised the hype even higher by revealing that the characters now have a daughter. “Sharkboy and Lava Girl show up as superhero parents who now have a daughter who has shark and lava powers," Rodriguez revealed, before adding that "the only speaking role is for Lavagirl."
'The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D' was a huge part of our childhoods so a lot of fans are understandably excited. Was it a particularly good movie? Maybe not, but it's still a cult classic and nobody expected them to make a comeback, much less with a child.
"The Sharkboy and Lavagirl sequel’s actually a thing. You’ve got to be kidding me," one fan wrote on Twitter. Another fan tweeted, "WAS NOT EXPECTING A F***IN SHARKBOY AND LAVAGIRL SEQUEL." Yet another fan took a much calmer approach to the news, noting that while this new development does make the upcoming movie more interesting, we still need answers for how Sharkboy and Lavagirl could have kids.
"Hold on...We Can Be Heroes was a pseudo-sequel to Sharkboy and Lavagirl the whole time? Actually, I'm interested now @Rodriguez.Though, how did Sharkboy and Lavagirl age, much less have a child hybrid? Well, I guess they did become real at the end. Kinda," they wrote.
Right now, not much is known about the comeback and Rodriguez hasn't revealed if Taylor Lautner and Taylor Dooley will reprise their roles as the fan-favorite characters. But even with all those questions, the biggest thing the fans want to know is how exactly these two, who were depicted as imaginary beings, could have sex.
One fan tweeted, "SHARKBOY AND LAVAGIRL HAD SEX I REPEAT SHARKBOY AND LAVE GIRL HAD SEX." "Yoooo what?! Sharkboy and Lavagirl making a comeback?! And this man fathered a child with her?! Bruh this can't be true," one bewildered fan wrote.
Another fan got super nostalgic writing, "Sharkboy and Lavagirl are having a kid... life comes at you fast."
Are you excited to see Sharkboy and Lavagirl again after all these years? Does this news make you miss those good old days? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
'We Can Be Heroes' doesn't have an official release date yet but it should arrive on Netflix by 2021.
