Marvel Entertainment has formed an international advisory board to expand the reach of its key character brands.

James Halpin, a Marvel director, will chair the new board while Simon Philips, president of Marvel's worldwide consumer products division, will act as the primary liaison. Others who will serve on the advisory board are Peter Yip, executive vice chairman and chief executive officer of the CDC Corporation; Manmohan Shetty, Bollywood film producer and former chairman of Adlabs Films Limited. Yip and Shetty will represent China and India, respectively. Two additional board members are being sought out by Marvel.

"The success of our feature films and other entertainment media in many international markets over the past several years has created increasing consumer awareness of, and appreciation for, our iconic brands," says Philips. "The formation of this advisory board will help us leverage this growing recognition into an expanding base of business opportunities on a global basis."
