The countdown to New York Comic Con is getting shorter. Today Valiant Publishing announced that news from their “Top-Secret, Live Action” project will be seen for the first time an NYCC. The series is directed by Aaron and Sean Shoenke from Bat in the Sun. The series is said to feature brutal live-action sequences with a top-secret roster of some of Valiant’s most iconic heroes.
Valiant has confirmed that Kevin Porter (Dodgeball) and Ciera Foster (Straight out of Compton) will be joining lead actor Michael Row (Arrow, The Flash) on the project. The cast also includes Jason David Frank (Power Rangers), John Morrison (Lucha Underground), Derek Theler (Baby Daddy) and Chantelle Barry (Entourage).
“We’ve been quietly working behind the scenes on this series since 2015 and are incredibly excited to be debuting the first look at footage this year at New York Comic Con. We’ve set out to make the best and most ambitious series ever produced in the digital space – one that will live up to the high standards we’ve set in publishing,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “As Valiant gears up for an upcoming slate of film, television and video game releases, we felt the timing was right to begin to produce live-action digital content that would both give ours fans an experience truly worthy of the Valiant Universe, while also introducing new fans to the Valiant characters in the same way the animated television shows of the 1980s and 1990s did for comics in years past. Get ready to lose your mind – seeing Ninjak in action for the first time in nothing short of incredible.”
