Comic Book Superhero legend Stan Lee is partnering with the Chinese studio Fundamental Films to bring an original superhero story to the big screen, with a female Chinese superhero lead.
The film, titled Realm, has little to no confirmed details as far as plot or characters but we do know that actress Li Bingbing will play the central protagonist.
Lee has brought some of the most iconic superheroes in fiction to life, including Spider-Man, X-Men and Hulk and he’s very excited to write a new original superhero for film. “What a kick it has been to create our first Chinese female superhero, and an empowering one at that,” said Lee. “It has been such a fun experience bringing to life an international woman character, and the ability to do so has been different from anything we’ve ever done! I am thoroughly enjoying every minute of it.”
“Stan Lee’s imagination has brought the world some of its most iconic pop-culture stories and characters. It gives us incredible pleasure and excitement to present his latest creation,” said Mark Gao, Chairman of Fundamental Films.
Li Bingbing has recently appeared in Resident Evil: Retribution, Transformers: Age of Extinction and Zhongkui: Snow Girl and the Dark Crystal. Who knows what kind of exciting new superhero Bingbing’s character will make? Can’t wait for more details!
