Moonshark, a startup backed by Qualcomm and talent agency CAA, teams up with big-name creative talent to create mobile games and apps. For its first game, it partnered with Jennifer Lopez. For its second title, it’s working with a star of a very different type — Stan Lee, the comic book writer who co-created (with artists Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko) most of Marvel’s biggest characters, including Spider-Man, and who’s now chairman and chief creative officer at POW! Entertainment.
Lee is supposed to take the stage at the Comikaze Expo (or, to use its full title, Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo) this morning, where he’s going to announce his partnership with Moonshark and show a brief trailer of the upcoming game, which will be called Verticus. I got on the phone with Moonshark CEO Matt Kozlov yesterday to get some of the details.
