The founding chairman of Marvel Studios is teaming with the manager of Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber to create a new entertainment company.

Scooter Braun, the man behind SB Projects and former Marvel Studios chairman, David Maisel have joined together to form Mythos Studios, which will be developing comic book properties for the big screen.

The new entity has acquired 50 per cent of Aspen Comics, the comic book company created by the artist Michael Turner. It will now develop the comic book properties ‘Fathom’ and ‘Mythos’ for the big screen.

In a statement on Tuesday, Braun said: “David’s experience of building some of the greatest franchises in film history during his tenure as founding chairman at Marvel Studios is invaluable and I am excited to be partnering with him on his new venture.”

Mythos reports that it has multiple projects in active development, with Fathom and Soulfire being named as the first projects stemming from the Los Angeles-based company’s investment in Aspen Comics.

Both projects are looking for distribution and financing partners.
