Appreciate the thanks, but, it isn't necessary.
I don't remember seeing this TV series last week.
The Mtime article/video was pretty good. There were also a lot of Chinese articles on "Arch Alien" last week, but, they were a subset of the Mtime one.
It was nice to hear that "Chakra" finally went into pre-production. I hope we keep getting news as casting is done and filming starts. The director said he will work in a Stan Lee cameo.
It will be interesting to see what the new animated series Genius Brands is working on. I read their 10K, the "Mighty 7" movie hasn't made enough money to cover production costs, so no money was dispersed to POW! for it. The Las Vegas Licensing show isn't too far off.
I haven't heard anything from Focus Media about their fundraising, they had debt due on the 18th. I was hoping to hear that being paid off, it would mean they were successful. I'm hoping that POW! gets money from them for the movie IP.
Also nothing on international broadcast sales of "Lucky Man". News is coming out about network renews and cancellations, though.
There are a lot of stuff on POW!'s plate, I hope some or all of it is good.
Focus Media has a link to the Mtime article/video on their Facebook page. They also mention that the last 4.5minutes of the Mtime video mentions two ("The Annihilator" and "Realm") of the three movie projects. Not sure if the movie budget went up, but, they also describe them as US $60 million budget films.
I never watched the whole video, I guess I will have to, now.
Trying to put the link here. Typing stuff in so it might not be rejected.
Article on desiforce website, titled "Stan Lee's Indian Superhero to be made into Bollywood Movie", dated May 18th. Casting rumors include Ranveer Signh as Raju Rai. Says entering preproduction at the end of the article.
Sorry, no link on iHub. I ran out of posts.
Link on iHub. Stan talks POW! projects first (Lucky Man, Arch Alien, Realm), Mentions the hologram Stan Lee is ready, may be out in China this year. Holographic shows based on Chinese mythology, heroes fighting beasts,, with a holographic Stan Lee introducing the shows.
Shareholder's letter is out for Genius Brands, on Yahoo, GNUS news.
Genius Brands will be at the Las Vegas Licensing show starting June 21. Stan Lee Comics will be one of the five brands they will feature at their booth. They will sneak peek, their two new series, I think one is a Stan Lee based property.
It's in their 10Q they reported today. That gives Genius Brands 2/3 and POW! 1/3.
No 8K with shareholder's letter, yet.
At 93, he is one injury away from being incapacitated. But, he is awfully spry for someone his age. I would say, it's even money on two, or more, years.
Hopefully we can get a share price increase before anything happens to him.

They mention "Arch Alien", and how it is supposed to include merchandise, comic book, and theme park stuff. He is an ex-lawmaker from Taiwan.
Article and link on iHub.
The movie stuff is mentioned starting on page 10 (link on iHub). "The Annihilator" and "Realm" arein the final stages of script development and the movies are expected to be completed and released in 2018. "Replicator & Antilight" is expected to be completed and released in 2019.
I added a YouTube video on iHub (it's in a Chinese dialect). I think it is reporting the "Realm of the Tiger" movie with Li Bing Bing and Stan Lee.
China Kemet Picture Film company is supposed to be working on it.

I'm not sure if there was any new news in this. It looks like the Marvel "Captain America: Civil War" movie spurred the article.
Pure happenstance. I started checking their Facebook page after their (moral) support of "Stan Lee's Lucky Man". I checked to see if they said anything about "Chakra", it turned out to be something better.
I do wish Stan and POW! president Gill Champion would get on board and update POW!'s website with news, and maybe an article on TheRealStanLee website (which finally just carried an article on the new "Chakra" news).
"Chakra" created a lot of exposure for POW! over the last week. I hope it continues as the movie is being made. I hope they announce the actors as they are chosen. I think the character has good long term potential.
"Chakra" and the"Zodiac Legacy" are the two POW! IPs I like best, so far (haven't seen an episode of "Lucky Man" yet).
I think the Chinese movies have good money potential, especially if they generate sequels.
