Stan Lee Teams Up With China To Save The World of Movies

China has come to have an increasingly large influence on the film market.  One of the reasons that the recent remake of Red Dawn was so delayed was that producers decided that the Chinese villains had to be switched to North Koreans in post to improve the Chinese box office. There's a massive untapped market in the middle kingdom, and comics legend Stan Lee has partnered up with the Chinese state run National Film Capitol production to tailor-make a superhero for a Chinese audience.

The superhero has the weirdly straightforward name The Annihilator, and has been described as "the perfect Chinese" hero by Stan Lee.

The Annihilator's origin is of a Chinese criminal named Ming, who is being held by U.S. authorities.  He agrees to subject himself to genetic experiments that replace his DNA with that of certain animals.  With his newly acuired powers, he returns to China to face an old rival.

The screenwriter is Dan Gilroy, who wrote the recent films The Bourne Legacy and Real Steel.  The film has a listed budget of $150 million dollars.  A release date has not yet been set.
