Stan Lee created The Hulk, The X-Men, Daredevil, The Fantastic Four, Spider-Man and many other iconic super heroes. The
man god deserves your attention. When he speaks, you listen. The power of Lee compels you!
Stan “The Man” Lee is slicking his hair back, trimming his mustache and polishing up his spectacles in preparation for the upcoming London Super Comic Con, where he is sure to razzle-dazzle his true believers. Leading-up to UK Con, TNT Magazine caught up with the Marvel mogul. He was asked what he thought of British actors playing the American characters that he created in Spider-Man and The Lizard saying, “I love British actors. I wish I were British. When British people talk it sounds more impressive than when Americans talk.” Goddamn, that was a great comment, makes me remember how much I love Stan Lee. Anyway, he also addressed the concern of Andrew Garfield taking over for Toby Maguire as Spider-Man, “Everybody was worried about Garfield. How could he replace Maguire? But he brings a whole new feeling to it, the way Parker ought to be but with a different take on it. From what I have seen, the public will love it,” assured Lee.
One of the most anticipated story lines this year will be how The Avengers and The Amazing Spider-Man stack up against Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. Lee seems unphased and rather neutral about the subject, saying that when you release a movie you go up against a lot of good movies. He also said that Batman is “Damn good” but is darker then what they are going for at Marvel Studios.
Stan doesn’t trash talk anything, he’s such a positive person. I approve of this way of thinking. I feel that fans shouldn’t be arguing on what film is gonna be better , or which we should be more excited about. Polarized fans should sit on their hands and appreciate how privileged they are at seeing these legendary comic heroes come to life.
Well, that’s what we fans should be doing, but it’s obvious none us are gonna be that classy. So, let the arguments begin!
