Better Call Saul is about to come to an end. The series, in general, has been exceptional. So much so that most of us have overlooked that the appearance of their characters does not fit their true age in the universe breaking bad. Recall that it is set several years before the main series. However, those responsible never contemplated resorting to the magic of computer generated graphics to rejuvenate them.
Now, the above did not prevent some fans from imagining what some characters would have looked like in a younger version than the one seen in breaking bad. For this reason, the visual effects artists at TheCynicalProduction studio were tasked with rejuvenate Saul Goodman, Gustavo Fring, Jesse Pinkman and Mike Ehrmantraut. The result, of course, will leave you speechless.
Precisely, it is Saul Goodman and Gustavo Fring who most suffer from the issue of age. However, thanks to visual effects, they go back in time. The case of Jesse Pinkman is also interesting because the scene of him in Better Call Saul We had already seen her in Breaking Bad*. Therefore, we are facing a recreation that can be directly compared with the original sequence. We, of course, are left with the latter. You can watch the videos below:
It is possible that after seeing the work of TheCynicalProduction you have thought that AMC could have dedicated some effort to subtract years from the faces of Better Call Saul. However, nothing happens because they have not done so. From the beginning we knew that this would be one of the small “inconveniences” of the series, especially after having seen El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie. In the end we ignore it because, in narrative terms, the series of the controversial lawyer has not been left to duty.
the future of the universe breaking bad after Better Call Saul
Will we see Saul Goodman again in a future spin-off of breaking bad? It is still too early to guarantee it. First, because we do not know what his fate will be in Better Call Saul, and second because AMC will surely want to focus on other characters. Who wouldn’t want to know what Kim Wexler’s new life was like? This is just one of many possibilities.
Of course, we will have to wait several years to see another series -or movie- of the universe breaking bad. In the middle of April, Vince Gilligan, creator of the franchise, said he will pause his adventure in this universe to focus on other projects. For his part, peter gouldGilligan’s inseparable screenwriter, also thinks the same: “I love these characters, I love this world. Maybe one day [regrese]but personally I’m going to take a little break from that world and try something else, just to show that I can.”
Of course, at AMC they are more than willing to undertake another spin-off as soon as Gilligan and Gould have a concrete idea. “I can tell you that if I could do anything to encourage Vince and Peter to continue in this universe, I would. I think you’d have to ask them, but the door is always open and I long for the day my phone rings and Vince, Peter or our friends at Sony call to say, ‘Hey, I think we have another show based on this universe,'” said Dan McDermott, president of AMC Studios.
