Stan Lee’s Pow! Entertainment and A Squared Entertainment announced Sunday at the Comikaze Expothat they were teaming up to make a feature film for the comic book legend's newest superhero series, Stan Lee’s Mighty 7 (SLAM7).
The film will premiere on The Hub TV Network and serve as a springboard for a potential television series.
At the same time, a new licensing partnership between Hot Topic and GreenSource was announced for an exclusive SLAM7 apparel program in 2013.
Archie Comics, publisher of the “Stan Lee’s Mighty 7” comic book series, also announced another series of SLAM7 comic books to be released every other month through 2013. The new series will star Stan Lee himself as he teaches a crew of alien prisoners and their jailers, who have crash-landed on Earth, how to work together and use their powers to be superheroes.
“In doing a new superhero project, the most important problem is how to make it new and different?” says Lee. “Our Mighty 7 is the world's first original and exciting "reality" superhero thriller.”
