Dan Gilroy

stan lee annihilator

We all know Stan Lee as one of the creative minds behind some of the best-known super hero personas in the business.  But Lee didn’t stop making stuff up once he left Marvel.  He has continued to create new characters and stories and now it looks like one of those “others”, the Annihilator, will be making his way to the screen.

The Annihilator’s back-story is that he’s a Chinese ex-prisoner given the super-soldier upgrade by the U.S. government.  They boost his genetics and give him a bunch of nifty animal powers.  He then sets out with said powers on a quest to beat the bad guys.

The project is being produced by Barry Josephson (Bones) and the script was put together by Dan Gilroy (The Bourne Legacy).  Other than that, no details are as-of-yet known.


Thanks to /film for the heads-up.

The guy who breathed life into Hugh Jackman‘s Rock ’em Sock ’em Robot movie will now do the same for the latest sensational Stan “the Man” Lee find! Ok, Stan Lee really hasn’t a ‘sensational find’ in decades, but lets give him a chance on this one.

According to Showblitz Real Steel and Bourne Legacy scribe Dan Gilroy will adapt a concept developed by Lee at his POW! Entertainment which was then acquired by Magic Storm who envision The Annihilator as a studio-level picture capable of appealing to Asian and global audiences. Don’t know who The Annihilator is?

Well there is more after the jump, true believer.
