We told you last week about Epix’ Avengers premiere contest and now comes some fresh footage about another Avengers adjacent and relevant bit of news from Epix, featuring none-other than Avengers co-creator Stan Lee. In the clip, from the upcoming EPIX documentary, With Great Power: The Stan Lee Story, Lee talks about the way he helped shine a light on artists and writers in the golden and silver age by giving them proper credit on the cover of their books. Lee also gave them nicknames in an effort to more ably single out these talents, comic historian Jim McLauchlin explains, ”Stan Made sure that everyone got a credit and he started building personality behind these people.”
So, will the full documentary shine a light on Lee’s opinions about the other ways some writers and artists have been cheated out of full credit? We’ll see when With Great Power: The Stan Lee Story premiers on Epix during their Marvel Heroes Weekend, a marathon of Marvel movies Iron Man 2, Thor, and Captain America: The First Avenger that takes place April 27th to the 29th. For more info on the marathon and the Lee documentary check out the Epix facebook page.
