As we mentioned earlier today, there are plenty of superheroes and superhero teams that deserve their own movies. But the next superhero to get the big-screen treatment isn't one you're familiar with: it's Stan Lee's newest hero, The Annihilator.
The new Conan the Barbarian movie that saw release last week thought it had seen hard times. Its opening weekend tanked at a dismal $10 million when estimates are that the film cost around $70 million to make. That alone isn't great ... but now they're facing a lawsuit from Stan Lee!
Spoiler alert, True Believers! At the Dallas Comic Con, Stan "The Man" Lee told everyone in attendance what his favorite Marvel movie cameo is—the one he filmed for the upcoming Amazing Spiderman.
Is a Marvel Comics movie without a Stan Lee cameo still a Marvel Comics movie? He's been a hot dog vendor in X-Men, WIllie Lumpkin in Fantastic Four and (most recently) a guy who rips up his truck trying to move Thor's hammer. If you're hoping to spot him in X-Men: First Class, though, you're going to be disappointed.
Everyone wants to be a zombie these days. Eating brains and stumbling around? That's what all the cool kids do. It wasn't always this way, but ever since Robert Kirkman's Walking Dead comic turned TV series became a major success, everyone's been asking him, "Can I be a zombie, too?"
We're all desperately waiting to see the Marvel Universe come together on screen in The Avengers on May 4, 2012 (assuming the date doesn't shift, that is). But it turns out the creation of that supergroup was an accident, brought about by an impending deadline and an artist with a drinking problem.
Yes, I'm sure you were kind of hoping that Arnold Schwarzenegger's foray into children's animation, The Governator, was some kind of incredibly elaborate April Fool's Day joke. Alas, it was not, as this footage makes abundantly clear.
Ever since the former governor of California left office, there's been reams of speculation as to how he'd re-enter the pop culture landscape. Now, the question of "What's next for Arnold Schwarzenegger?" has been answered. Boy, has it ever been answered.
Back in Kevin Smith's 1995 flick Mallrats, Stan Lee was approached by Jason Lee's character and asked, "Is his dork made out of orange rock like the rest of his body?" Lee wouldn't answer, calling it a superhero secret. But now, he's letting that secret hang out.
That record-breaking sale of Amazing Fantasy #15 we told you about last year (you know—the comic that contained the first appearance of Spider-Man) ain't a record any more. Because when it came to buying the highest graded existing copy of the book, $280,000 would have just been chump change.
