The Bumilangit Cinematic Universe in collaboration with online community forum Kaskus has launched a fan forum called Rumah Perdamaian (House of Peace) on community platform Kaskus.

The forum will enable fans to discuss theories and share information about the development of the Bumilangit Cinematic Universe.

"We witnessed the enthusiasm of Gundala comic book fans as the movie that kicked off the Bumilangit Cinematic Universe premiered last year," Bismarka Kurniawan, founder and CEO of Bumilangit Entertainment Corpora, said in a statement. "Kaskus is the perfect community platform for us to build a headquarters for those who are eager to know everything about Bumilangit."
