Comic book legend Stan Lee introduced his latest animation character as part of a co-production between India and China. Lee had created the character with his long-time collaborator Sharad Devarajan. Chinese film group Shinework Pictures has announced a partnership with Lee's media company POW Entertainment and Graphic India, to begin pre-production on a live-action Chinese theatrical film. The new animated character brings together two of the world's biggest film industries - Indian and Chinese - through interconnected legends.

Recently, Shinework announced its film fund and initial slate of projects, previously known for one of the biggest co-production films in China. The film will be for a global audience. The film will primarily be targeted toward the Chinese market, but will also be developed to appeal to international markets globally. The partners will look to cast leading Chinese, Indian, and international stars.
