As somewhat expected given earlier comments, long-time Batman film producer Michael Uslan has announced that T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents is in development as a "very prolific" television and film franchise. Revealed at a panel during New York Comic Con, T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents is being developed by Uslan along with screenwriters Ben Lustig and Jake Thornton.

"The theme of T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents is no matter what our political or cultural differences are, we have to put them aside in the face of a greater threat, and come together as a greater family of man," said Uslan.

Uslan goes on to describe their "modern" spin on the franchise as "Avengers meets Jason Bourne."

China's Huayi Brothers Media Corporation is helping fund the project, and is also involved making sure the TV and film projects work globally.

And although he's best known for appearing in Marvel movies, Uslan revealed that Stan Lee has already been cast in a cameo role -- one which Lee talks abought briefly in a pre-recorded video.

"Oh boy, I just can't wait," said Lee. "Excelsior!"
