Akira is always going to be one of the greatest comics ever made. If you have only seen the Anime you are missing out on about 95% of the story. A western version has been in the works for over a decade but has recently started to get off the ground with writer Jonathan Nolan working on a script.
At the moment it isn’t know if the new film will be based on the Manga or Anime, hopfully it will be a whole new take on the story and a slightly less bridged version of the manga.
Either way here is the first leaked concept art from the movie. It’s a picture of Kaneda looking over a disaster scene which could be one of many from the manga.
The artwork comes from a Warner Bross concept artist called Jonas De Ro.
