In a world filled with superhero movies, two living comic-book legends are teaming up for a new mystery project based on an original creation. So what are Stan and and Avi cooking up?
Stan Lee, aka the guy who co-created everything from the X-Men to Spider-Man, has joined forces with uber-film producer Avi Arad (X-Men, Spider-Man, Iron Man) to develop a new film featuring a brand-new character created by Lee.
Needless to say, this could be a really, really big deal. Arad is a former head of Marvel Studios and has been involved with virtually every Marvel project over the past two decades. As for Lee? He helped create the vast majority of those properties, and at 90 years old is still going strong.
Neither side has opened up about the potential story, though it sounds like the title could hold some major details. As Arad teased: “Some titles give away too much." Hmm, so we should apparently be keeping an eye out for more info.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the project is still in its early stages, and producers hope to hire a writer soon to pen the screenplay.
So what do you think this project is about? Can Stan Lee capture some of his classic magic and breathe some fresh life into the genre?
