We all have seen Shah Rukh Khan in Ra.One as a superhero. Can we imagine something greater than that? YES, WE DEFINITELY CAN. It seems, Stephen Wacker, VP of Creative Development at Marvel is a fan of THE KING OF BOLLYWOOD himself. AND, in case there is any Indian content in the future, Marvel shall cast Shah Rukh Khan. Sorry Krrish, it is just not your time! Imagine Shah Rukh Khan amongst the World's mightiest heroes. Sounds pretty exciting!
Marvel's content is very appealing worldwide. Be it their movies or their TV shows, fans can binge watch for hours. What makes Marvel interested in India is the growth of viewership in the last few years. The fanbase has increased massively with the likes of the latest Avengers: Infinity War. Now, Marvel wants to do something for the Indian fan base. That might include creating Indian content in the future. Of course, we are all game for that!

Speaking with Indian Express, Stephen said, “It’s the belief that there is a hero inside all of us. Within each of us is the belief that we can be better than who we are. I think that’s exciting for everybody.” Not only that, ''We want to find a way to create characters that have a home in this world so we can bring Indian culture to the core North American Marvel fan. Let them understand a different part of the world too. I think that’s going to be an exciting thing for Marvel. My hope is that the fan in India feels just as much part of the Marvel universe as some kid in New York.” said Stephen.
