Comic Con is headed to Tokyo, courtesy of Steve Wozniak. It’s the first time the convention will ever be held in Japan, and it’s planned for December 2016. It’s going to be a sister event to the Apple co-founder’s Silicon Valley Comic Con, and the Woz himself appeared in Tokyo last weekend to get people excited. In…
This is the point we’ve reached now. Hot Toys has made so many eerily accurate replices of Marvel’s movie superheroes, they’re now turning to a man who played a role in some of their creation stories for toy inspiration. Yes, now even Stan Lee is getting immortalized in plastic. Excelsior!
Hey, folks! Sorry to dispense with my normal nonsense, but I got a really important letter that I‘m very excited to share. I don’t get a ton of letters dealing with real issues, but I’m always happy to try to help. If you only read this for silliness, don’t worry—there’s still an insane Mad Max theory and the world’s…
The Fantastic Four is one of my favorite teams in comic books. That is because, essentially, they aren’t a team, they are a family. Two of them are siblings, two of them are married, two of them have been best friends for years. They bicker, they squabble, but at the end of the day, they have each other’s backs and…
20th Century Fox ended its Hall H Comic-Con panel on Saturday by bringing together the casts of Fantastic Four, X-Men Apocalypse, The Wolverine, Deadpool and even Channing Tatum as Gambit for an awesome group photo.
After many years helping to create superhero icons alongside the likes of Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, and many other creators, Stan Lee is getting the honour many of his characters have had for decades: An action figure! It is, of course, as wonderful and as weird as a Stan Lee figure should be.
Let’s all be glad Stan Lee is still alive. Let’s all be sad that the words “Stan Lee” are still appearing in front of new things.
How have Stan Lee's ideas about superpowers changed as he's gotten older? In this sketch from Key & Peele, the Marvel Comics creator pitches several new characters based on his more recent frustrations and desires.
What do you get as a present for Stan Lee, the man who has a cameo in every Marvel movie? How about a sculpture of his face fashioned into a cameo jewel? Someone commissioned this Stan Lee cameo as a gift for Lee and you can buy one for yourself.
There's a rumor going around that Stan Lee, who has managed to cameo in almost every Marvel movie including those made by Sony and Fox, is not just playing random characters but is instead Uatu, the cosmic alien known as The Watcher. This rumor is dumb, and this compilation of Lee's cameos proves why.
Updated! Apparently Disney didn't forbid the scene, because they never saw it. Director James Gunn took to Instagram to clear up the story. It boils down to this: He shot it with a double (seen in the pic below) but before the real Stan could film it, decided it was too similar to Star-Lord's finger gag. Good call!
The answer depends on how much you think Stan Lee knows about Marvel's movie plans. But he said it was happening at Fan Expo Canada.
In 1963, George R. Martin (who, at that age, had yet to earn his second "R") wrote to Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in feigned praise of Fantastic Four #17, an issue he refers to, dryly, as "greater than great... absolutely stupendous, the ultimate, utmost!" Proving that even as a boy, GRRM was an acerbic, 65-year-old man.
We've seen numerous western superheroes drawn in the styles of Japanese manga artists, but what if famous Japanese characters had been designed by American artists? Jack Kirby's take on Akira might have been an American version worth looking at.
Three new clips from Amazing Spider-Man 2 have just dropped, complete with narration by Stan Lee. They're also complete with a pretty major spoiler for the movie if you're interested (it's in the last video below).
If the world seems a little grayer today, if children seem to laugh less, or if puppies and kittens look a little less cute, please don't be confused. This is merely the consequence of the devastating news that Stan Lee will somehow not have a cameo in Marvel's upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film.
Playing "spot the Stan Lee cameo" is a tradition when watching Marvel movies, but in an upcoming episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., he'll be getting more than a brief shot and a quippy line.
Could Stephen King's The Stand become a movie at last? Stan Lee's working on a movie for Sony, details have emerged about the in-development Agent Carter series, and someone we know well is getting shot by Oliver on Arrow. Plus, there's a rumor CBS is working on two Star Trek series — but what are they about? Spoilers…
No one likes to think about it but there will be a day when Stan Lee’s cameos will end. He may be an indefatigable 90-year-old but the co-creator of The Fantastic Four, Hulk and Spider-Man is still only human. But, in the upcoming Lego Marvel Super-Heroes video game, Stan Lee is pretty much omnipotent.
This week in the world of cartoons, Bender is robo-jacked on Futurama, Stan Lee voices a janitor on Ultimate Spider-Man, and we are treated to the spectacular Gravity Falls season finale.
