Stan Lee, the all-father of comics, is high on my lists of people I want to sit down and have a drink with. I’d love to get him drunk and hear some stories. I was a little jealous when I saw that Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb actually got to do this. That lucky bastard! It seems the only way to get some time with Lee is to make a super hero movie. Kickstarter here I come…
In a ploy to have comic books fans buy into this Spider-Man reboot, Webb sat down with Stan Lee for “Cocktails with Stan.” Lee doesn’t actually get drunk, but he does get super excited about a glass of vodka. Check out the interview with host Jenna in the video below:
OK, so the round table wasn’t as epic as you though it might be. Regardless, Stan is such a funny old man. I love hearing him speak. Oh, and that panel that Lee was talking about was a story of Spider Man fighting the Lizard, ironically.
The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents’ disappearance leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Ifans), his father’s former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors’ alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.
