“As one of the world’s most popular franchises, ‘Ultraman’ has brought together some of the most passionate fandoms in pop culture today, and we can’t wait to bring his story to even more fans around the globe,” Marvel’s editor-in-chief, C.B. Cebulski, said.
“Ultraman” was created by Eiji Tsuburaya and Tetsuo Kinjo as a follow-up to “Ultra Q” — the first title in the “Ultra Series” — in July 1966, according to Ultraman-Movie. The original series, which was produced by Tsuburaya Productions, ran for 40 episodes on the Tokyo Broadcasting System (T.B.S.) from July 17, 1966 to April 9, 1967.
“Like Marvel, ‘Ultraman’ captivated generations by telling spectacular stories grounded in the real world, and it continues to be a beloved classic through its television shows, movies, toys, games, comics, and more,” C.B. Cebulski added in the statement. “We are so thrilled to introduce new chapters to the Ultraman Multiverse next year.”
Marvel did not elaborate on specific details of the collaboration. But World of Buzz reported it’s likely the agreement will only cover printed materials, including comic books and graphic novels.
