Stan Lee’s Indian superhero Chakra the Invincible is heading to Bollywood.
Created by the legendary writer and cartoonist Jeevan J. Kang, the comic debuted last year from Graphic India, introducing teen tech genius Raju Rai, who develops a suit that activates the mystical chakras of the body, unleashing special powers.
However, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the live-action film in development by Lee’s POW! Entertainment and Graphic India will feature an adult Chakra, who faces his arch-enemy Boss Yama. Lee, Gill Champion of POW! and Sharad Devarajan of Graphic India are reportedly meeting with leading Bollywood directors, writers and producers about the adaptation.
“We’ve set up some great meetings already with some of the most amazingly talented actors and directors in Indian cinema,” Lee said in a statement, “and I have no doubt that these individuals will help make the Chakra film a massive hit in India and around the globe.”
The character made his animated debut in November 2013 with an hour-long television movie broadcast across South Asia on Cartoon Network.
