Despite the unfortunate passing of Stan Lee earlier this month, it appears that the Marvel Comics icon's contribution to the world of superheroes isn't over just yet.
According to Deadline, The B-Team -- an idea hatched by Lee himself -- is currently being adapted into a live-action television series by South Korean production company Studio Invictus.
The B-Team will follow a group of B-list superheroes who battle the scientist who created them and is set to be written by Kang Eun-kyung. Eun-kyung is a recipient of the Baeksang Arts Award for Best TV Script and a two-time winner of the KBS Drama Awards' Best Writer honor.
"Through careful planning with Stan, we are confident his vision will continue to be recognized through our current and future Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment projects," CEO of POW! Entertainment Shane Duffy said. "The Group will firmly push forward the development of Stan Lee IP and strive to integrate Stan Lee elements with oriental tradition to realize Mr. Stan Lee’s great vision.”
Working with Studio Invictus on the new series will be South Korea's JYP Pictures, as well as China's Camsing International, which acquired Lee's company POW! Entertainment in 2017.
It is expected that two versions of The B-Team will be produced, one for Korea and one for China. The series will debut sometime in 2020.
