    Stan Lee to create Chinese movie superhero Monkey Master

    Marvel Comics great Stan Lee is to enter the Chinese film market by co-creating a new superhero movie character, Monkey Master.

    “I have always been fascinated by the Chinese and Indian cultures which are so philosophical and rich in tradition and morality. Monkey Master will be unique in how it interweaves Chinese and Indian myth to create a hero that will entertain fans across the world with his martial arts skills and unstoppable superpowers.”

    “The story will take place between ancient and modern-day China and India as the myth of monkey warriors, known to both cultures, come together in the creation of a modern-day superhero.”


    This won't be anything new, not for the creator of Thor and certainly not for Son Wukong.

    But here's hoping it will be interesting.

    I always wanted to see a big budget movie based on Sun Wukong. There are so many things in media based off that legend but nothing that is just the original done up right.

    I'd be keen on this, my only exposure to the character is the TV show Monkey and Dragon Ball.
