Virtual reality company Legend VR has partnered with Stan Lee’s Pow! Entertainment to create virtual reality episodes for the new adult animated series “Stan Lee’s Cosmic Crusaders” and is expanding its virtual reality division.
The company also said it has promoted the series’ VR producer Will Maurer to vice president of business development for its standalone VR and VFX divisions.
The series is the first show to debut on THR.com, the website of industry newspaper The Hollywood Reporter, and the first four episodes will air exclusively on THR.com leading up to Comic-Con International 2016 in San Diego this week. The VR episodes will premiere on the Hindsight VR app.
Legend VR said Maurer’s promotion “underscores the company’s commitment to expanding Legend VR," its freestanding virtual reality division that helps studios, documentary filmmakers and others create interactive content. Its clients have included Lionsgate, Warner Brothers, Apple Music, Annapurna Pictures, Hulu, and Tidal.
