Next in line for Netflix’s live-action “Cowboy Bebop” teasers is a snapshot of a renowned showdown between one charismatic bounty hunter and his arch-nemesis.

“IYKYK”: Over the weekend, Netflix dropped teaser photos and videos of seminal moments from their remake of the cult-classic original anime series, including its opening sequence — accompanied by Yoko Kanno’s original track “Tank!” — and a still of John Cho as Spike Spiegel fighting against Alex Hassell as Vicious.

  • In the still, which mirrors an iconic shot from the anime, Spiegel and Vicious are locked in a stalemate, a gun versus a sword, as the light from a cathedral’s stained glass window shines behind them.

  • The scene first aired in the anime’s “Ballad of Fallen Angels” episode in a much darker and contrasted tone.

  • Netflix Geeked, the streaming giant’s entertainment and community-focused Twitter account, continued to post stills and comparison photos of the cast throughout the week.

  • Fans also included stills of the remade characters they were excited for.

  • Although there’s still no new mentions about the live-action’s rendition of Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky IV, the young tech genius and fourth member aboard the Bebop, showrunner André Nemec reassured fans by saying, “People will be…very delighted when they watch the season,” according to Polygon.
  • Until then, Netflix Geeked will continue to share photos of Ed’s fluffy companion Ein, and the account currently has its bio set to say “no thoughts just Ein.”
  • The remake will be released on Nov. 19 and will run for 10 episodes.
