Marvel has disclosed that the studio is quite interested in making productions focused on Indian content in the coming future. Talking to the Indian press, Stephen Wacker (VP, Creative Development, Marvel), said that it wants to create more characters ‘with a real toehold in Indian culture’, adding that it will try for authenticity that can go as far as finding Indian talent. “We want to find a way to create characters that have a home in this world so we can bring Indian culture to the core North American Marvel fan,” he said. “Let them understand a different part of the world too. I think that’s going to be an exciting thing for Marvel.” Wacker also revealed that he hopes for Marvel to create an Indian character on par with Black Panther. When asked who they’d cast, he shared, “If we make Indian content, we have to put Shah Rukh Khan. He has to be in it.”Published in Daily Times, September 14th 2018.
