Telugu writer-director Prasanth Varma, who is celebrating his birthday today, has announced ‘the first original superhero film in Telugu’. Titled Hanu-Man, the movie is also supposed to introduce a cinematic universe of superheroes.

The teaser features shots of a snow-clad mountainous region as it morphs into the poster. The poster shows the movie’s logo that has Hanu and Man with a graphic of the sun separating them. A man stands between the two mountain peaks.
“The dawn of a new cinematic universe,” declares the text on the poster.
In a statement, the makers promised that Hanu-Man will be a “visual extravaganza”. The cast and crew of the project will be announced soon.
Prasanth Varma’s last film was a zombie comedy titled Zombie Reddy, which released earlier this year.
