Thunder Agents Comic Book Optioned

June 25, 2015 A major movie and television announcement based on a longstanding comic book universe is hitting Hall H at this year’s San Diego Comic Con. And it’s not the Marvel Universe.

As Marvel skips out on the Comic-Con festivities, the T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents franchise is poised to make a massive announcement regarding feature film and television adaptations.

The T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents, for those not in the-know, are a team of super heroes who work for the United Nations. But instead of behaving like larger-than-life icons, the Agents are merely everyday people, protecting the world as their nine-to-five day job. IDW Publishing currently owns the franchise and publishes T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents comics.

While information regarding a studio and creative talent for a live action T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents is still under wraps, a mysterious panel description for San Diego Comic-Con confirms that big news is coming for the long-standing franchise.

“It’s not often that a major new motion picture and television franchise is announced in a surrounding more intimate than Hall H! So here’s your opportunity to be part of something very special,” reads the official description. “This panel remains top secret as the race is on to bring in an “A-List” franchise director and executive producer, either in person or via a video greeting, studio heads, producers, and include an homage to the underlying comic book artists, writers, and editors.”
