Besides starring in it, Bingbing will serve as the movie’s executive producer. She also participated in the creative process, met with the screenwriter and production team over the past year.

Lee said,

“What a kick it has been to create our first Chinese female superhero, and an empowering one at that

“It has been such a fun experience bringing to life an international woman character, and the ability to do so has been different from anything we’ve ever done! I am thoroughly enjoying every minute of it.”

Realm will be a joint production between Stan Lee Global Entertainment and the mainland Chinese production-distribution company Fundamental Films.

It will be Bingbing’s first time working with Marvel Comics, though it is not her first venture into the Hollywood scene.
