Higgins revealed that thanks to his time working on Power Rangers, he discovered and learn more about the tokusatsu and even stated that it has been a huge source of joy for him. He stated, "It's a genre so ripe with possibilities, even down to what we conceive of in the structure of Super Hero storytelling. It’s both an honor and a privilege to bring Ultraman to Marvel."
He continued, "He imagined the darkness looming overhead as tall as skyscrapers— alien and unknowable and ANGRY. But he also imagined us being able to stand up to those monsters, by rising above our worst impulses and embracing a nobler way of being. He imagined Ultraman. What does that mean in this complex, contradictory world of lies? We're going to find out..."
The Rise of Ultraman is set for a release later this year.
