Late last year, I spoke to comic book writer and former studio exec Jeff Katz about “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and the various characters he helped bring to the big screen during the last decade. Along with co-writing DC’s “Booster Gold” series and work on other titles, Katz has been a driving force in bringing comics to Hollywood as adaptations received well by both comics fans and mainstream audiences alike (including the “Blade” and “X-Men” franchises).

That’s why today’s announcement about American Original, the new entertainment company created by Katz for developing genre content across comics, movies, television, gaming, toys and just about every other possible medium, really didn’t come as much of a surprise.
