Announced at Tokyo Comic Con, the collaboration will launch next year, bringing a property that’s been a pop culture classic since the 1960s to a whole new set of fans. Beginning next year, Marvel will expand the previous iconic era of the Ultras through the lens of Marvel’s art and storytelling.
We don’t have many details yet, but both parties are excited to put out new Ultraman stories.
“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,” says Marvel Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski. “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. We are so thrilled to introduce new chapters to the Ultraman Multiverse next year.”
“We are delighted to announce the partnership with Marvel, one of the leading entertainment companies that has produced fascinating characters and stories loved by fans across the globe for over 80 years,” says Tsuburaya Production CEO Takayuki Tsukagoshi. “We can’t be more excited to explore and create new stories for the Ultraman franchise with Marvel and bringing them to both Marvel and Ultraman fans all around the world.”
