Stan Lee has spent decades building superhero mythologies. Creating superteams and cameoing in Marvel movies is pretty much all he does. But he’s never had a chance to mix it up with supervillains… until now.
The clip is pretty much exactly what you’d expect of Stan: Plenty of winking at the audience and enthusiasm. Oh, and also the ongoing theme of “Stan Lee Has Got To Get Paid.”
Mighty 7: Beginnings is, as you might expect, the start of a trilogy of animated movies debuting on the Hub Network. It’s also a wrap-up for two years of expectation for fans, who saw the original miniseries cut short in favor of shifting over to a series of animated movies. The movie premiered in February, but the Blu-Ray is packed full of extras, including this look at Stan voicing himself.
And, of course, it’s got Stan Lee kicking some butt. It’s not quite Spider-Stan, but hey, we’ll take what we can get.
