‘Yoga Hosers’ Will Reunite Stan Lee and Kevin Smith

Writer/director Kevin Smith built his career off the back of his love for comic books and geek fandom. While his proclivities for geek culture seeped into many of his movies, none so more than his 1995 romantic comedy Mallrats.

Besides the film featuring a main character who collects comic books and has a weird obsession with super hero sex organs, the stand out fan-boy moment is when Marvel comics legend Stan Lee makes a cameo as himself and tells a story about “the girl that got away”.

A delightful and inspiring scene on what was otherwise a juvenile movie. Really, though, I think Smith simply wrote the scene as an excuse to work with one of his comic book heroes. Whatever the case, it worked. Smith and Lee have become life long friends. A geeks dream come true.

Now, 20 years later (feeling old are you?) Kevin Smith and Stan Lee will reunite for Smith’s upcoming film Yoga Hosers.

During last weekends Wizard World Chicago Comic Con Stan Lee made his usual appearance, although this time there was an added twist. Towards the end of Stan’s panel, Wizard World CEO John Macaluso challenged Stan Lee to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. You’d have to be Amish or living in a cave to not know what the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is so I won’t go into what it’s all about. If you haven’t already seen a ton of videos on the Internet then this one will explain the concept well enough. (more…)

We were teased the other day with mysterious hints that there would be big news from Marvel coming out of The View today. Now we know what it’s all about. It seems that Thor has lost his mojo and his hammer after he becomes unworthy to hold the mighty Uru hammer. Details are sparse, but the big announcement was that a female character will be filling the gap and taking up Thor’s hammer and powers. (more…)

Stan-Lee

For many years now, the creation of a Marvel movie hasn’t been complete until former Marvel All Father Stan Lee has stepped in and made his cameo appearance.  All of Stan’s cameos have been great little nods to the comic community, who without, all these multi-million dollar super hero movies would never exist.

Never being shy to promote himself, Lee as has confirmed his appearance in Marvel’s upcoming tent pole super team extravaganza Avengers: Age of Ultron. He also (jokingly) teased something about Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. (more…)

Stan The Man Responds to Goyer’s She-Hulk Comments

Hey! Comic nerds! Did anything, I don’t know, incidiary happen on the internet in the last 24 hours? Haha. I’m kidding of course. By now you will have surely heard about David Goyer‘s alleged smack talk about She-Hulk in the midst of an all-star screenwriters panel on a live edition of John August’s ScriptNotes podcast. In no uncertain terms, Goyer said that She-Hulk was as a sexed up male fantasy whose sole function was to be a girl only the Hulk could, ahem, love. Leaving aside the ickiness of She-Hulk being Man-Hulk’s cousin and everything, a lot of people are of the opinion that Goyer’s comments are off the mark, and one of them is She-Hulk’s co-creator Stan “The Man” Lee.
