“Ultraman, and his Ultra Brothers, has been inspiring and exciting people around the world for over half a century. We’re honored to have an opportunity to add a unique thread to the grand Ultraman tapestry- drawing on all that has come before, to create something unlike anything that has come before,” Higgins and Groom told Marvel.com last month. “Familiar faces, taking on brand-new roles. Familiar ideas, but given brand-new spins. We’re doing our best to ensure fans of Ultraman get to see the elements they know and love – but also the ensure those same fans will never be able to guess what comes next, at every step.”
