Stan Lee Comics has a slick new animated sci-fi slate launching next year, with a saga featuring Star Marshalls and their five alien prisoners crash-landing in the desert. Stan Lee's Mighty 7 is a trilogy of direct-to-DVD anime films with Stan Lee playing himself as an Archie Comics writer suffering from writer's block who collides with the alien survivors and decides to create a comic-book series based on their paranormal Earthly exploits. The talented voice cast stars Armie Hammer, Christian Slater, Mayim Bialik, Teri Hatcher, Flea, Darren Criss, Sean Austin, Jim Belushi and Michael Ironside.
Here's Smilin' Stan's official synopsis:
SLAM 7 is the first reality-style comic books series and the first superhero project from Stan Lee Comics. We’re combining fantasy and reality, comedy and adventure for a superhero series unlike anything I’ve created before. These incredible actors have brought these alien superheroes to life even better than I could have imagined…if that’s even possible! The SLAM 7 trilogy begins with three feature-length films, a monthly comic book and an animated television series thereafter, to debut in 2015. The Hub Network has the world premiere of all three movies starting with the first movie, Beginnings, in early 2014. Cinedigm will release a DVD and Digital release in the U.S. in summer 2014.
