Legendary Pictures is a US film producer and financer. They specialise in funnelling money from hedge funds/private investors into the film industry, and have been pretty successful, with lots of great films. Hits include Inception, The 300, Dark Knight, The Hangover.
The reason that I am writing about them is that they are starting a comic division, with the aim of releasing 4-6 graphic novels each year. I love this, because i love Transmedia.
The books will serve as translations from the producer’s film and TV properties. I’m looking forward to these ventures appearing in India. I think that both UTV and Reliance have the capacity for this in-house already, perhaps its just a matter of finding film or TV content with enough fandom-power to warrant a comic book.
Once again we are back to the question – where are the Indian Superheroes?
Krrrish doesn’t count.
