Episode 327: Bringing back Ultraman with Jeff Gomez
Transmedia expert Jeff Gomez and his company Starlight Runner have been tapped by Japan’s Tsuburaya to bring the classic Ultraman back to the pop culture masses, with an emphasis on expanding the brand across the globe. The venture is massive and will involve crafting a story across multiple forms of media from TV, books, video games, and more.
Gomez has a history of doing the same for Spider-Man, Halo, Pirates of the Caribbean, among others. Not to mention, he has a personal history with Renton’s Wizards of the Coast as the game company was forming over the 1990s.
