Stan Lee, surveying his domain at Comic-Con International
Adding to his long list of projects, Stan Lee has signed on to create a superhero for the Chinese government-run National Film Capital.
The Los Angeles Times reports that the character, called the Annihilator, will star in an English-language movie that tops a slate of of planned Hollywood co-productions that includes the action-fantasy Dragon Scroll and the historical epic Genghis Khan.
“This is the perfect Chinese hero,” Lee said in a taped message shown Monday at the Shanghai International Film Festival. “China is a nation that is involved with movies and the industry is growing so it’s as though all the pieces are coming together beautifully.”
