Stan Lee's Annihilator has been optioned for cinema by Magic Storm Entertainment.
Bourne Legacy writer Dan Gilroy will pen a screenplay based on the character that Lee created for the Chinese market, The Wrap reports.
Annihilator's story is reminiscent of Captain America's, telling of a young Chinese expatriate named Ming who survives a Us military super-soldier programme thanks to his martial arts training.
TV producer Barry Josephson will oversee the project's development and National Film Capital will provide financial backing.
Lee previously teamed up with Liquid Comics to created a superhero property for the Indian market called Chakra - The Invincible.
Annihilator is yet to appoint a cast and director. »
