Excelsior! – Remembering Stan Lee

Image result for stan lee spider verse

It took imagination to create these colorful characters and make them heroes and villains. This one man created a comic book revolution and with many artists like Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko and many more, he made characters like Spider-Man, The Hulk, Captain America, Loki, Magneto and much more. This man is Stan Lee. It has been one year since it was announced that Marvel comic book creator and CEO Stan Lee has passed away.

Throughout the years, Stan Lee has created so many heroes and villains and build a world where we grew attached to them. Thanks to him and his team, we can relate to many characters and look up to them. We can be the down to earth and awkward Spider-Man, the rampaging monster Hulk or even someone as patriotic like Captain America. He also made villains that was memorable and gave us lasting impressions on epic heroic battles such as the magnetic manipulator mutant Magneto, the trickster god Loki and the green creep Green Goblin. Not only Stan made so many comics, he was also well known for making cameo appearance in Marvel movies and TV shows. He may not have been in every single film, but he sure knows to attract attention to his fans. He was in Marvel movies (Disney, Fox and Sony), TV shows, video games and even in a DC animated movie called Teen Titans Go! to the movies.

His last cameo was in Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame. As a fan of Stan Lee, it still saddens me that he passed away. However, at least he is resting in peace and he is reunited with his wife, Joan Lee. What is your favorite cameo appearance? Did you meet Stan Lee? What was your favorite characters?

Thank you Stan Lee

2022 is going to be a long wait for Spider-Man fans. It was announced by Marvel and Sony that 2018’s animated movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is going to be getting a sequel. The sequel will be out in theaters on April 8th, 2022. It looks like Miles Morales and Peter B. Parker are going to be meeting some new Spider-Men versions. In a old post I wrote, movie co-producer and writer Phil Lord commented on Twitter that if Spider-Verse makes a lot of money and break records reaching $200 million, he would consider adding the Japanese live action Tokusatsu version Spider-man or also known as Supaidāman.

Tokusatsu Spider-Man synopsis:

1978 Spider-Man tokusatsu series is well known inside and outside the genre, both as a curiosity and as a sign of just how widely popular the Marvel hero is. This iteration of Spidey is a biker named Takuya Yamashiro, who gains his powers after a blood transfusion from the last warrior of Planet Spider. As Spider-Man he can perform all the heroic feats we’re used to, plus transform the ship Marveller into the giant robot Leopardon.

Friday Funny 234: Marvel vs DC – Who was the king and who was the fool?

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome everyone another exciting day of Friday Funny. I hope everyone is staying warm in this fall month. We’re not in summer anymore, so put away the beach towels and cover up the swimming pool. I hope everyone had a good week and are ready for the weekend. Before we begin, let’s talk about what’s new and what to expect this weekend. Toonami just aired the last episode of the English Dub of Dragon Ball Super. The next anime joining Toonami is the second season of One-Punch Man and the anime premiere of Demon Slayer. Today is also the movie release of the classic cartoon The Addams Family. If you’re going to the movies to see Joker, be careful out there and avoid any suspicious people and take kids to see this rated R movie. As we are here in the last quarter of the year, let’s look back in the Marvel and DC comic book movies of this year. Marvel has been unleashing movies from Disney, Fox and Sony. Starting the year, we had the powerful superhero Captain Marvel. This movie shows her origin and how powerful she is across the galaxy. We had the huge cinematic crossover movie and epic conclusion to the Avengers, We had Avengers: Endgame where the Avengers must team up for one more battle and take down Thanos and undo his deeds and bring order to the galaxy. With Sony involved with Disney, we got a follow up story taking place after Endgame focusing on the young webslinger Spider-Man. In Spider-Man: Far From Home, Spider-Man learns the struggles of being a superhero and how tough it is be like Iron Man when he has to face off against some elemental villains. He also learns not everyone can be Iron Man after his encounter with Mysterio. In the Marvel Fox movies, we have Dark Phoenix. In Dark Phoenix, watch how the X-Men must face off against their deadliest foe, their own X-Men friend Jean Grey. DC may have two films this year, but they been enjoyable by fans. If Marvel’s Captain Marvel wasn’t good, how about DC’s version of Captain Marvel, Shazam. In Shazam! watch how a young kid inherits magical powers bestowed by a wizard and how great power comes great responsibility. Last but not least, we Joker. Taking place in a fictional but realistic world of Gotham, watch as one man loses his mind after feeling outcasted and oppressed by society. Joker shows us that life is a joke and you might as well make it a show. What movies did you enjoy the most and what was your least favorite?

Looks like Spidey won’t be leaving us anytime soon. This spider is here to stay! It’s been announced today that Sony and Disney has settled a deal on Thursday night that Spider-Man will remain in the MCu world with the Avengers. Sony Pictures chief Tom Rothman, Feige and Walt Disney Studios co-chairs Alan Horn and Alan Bergman both discussed about the future movies of Spider-Man and finding his place in the Marvel world and they both settled for an agreement. In the summer, Disney-Marvel wanted a 50/50 on the money earned from Sony instead of the proposed 5%. Now, Disney-Marvel agreed to 25% in which they will earn and they hold the merchandising rights. In addition to the deal, it’s been confirmed that they will be doing a third Spider-Man taking place after the events of Far From Home. This new Spider-Man movie will be in theaters July 16, 2021.

“I am thrilled that Spidey’s journey in the MCU will continue, and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited that we get to keep working on it. “Spider-Man is a powerful icon and hero whose story crosses all ages and audiences around the globe. He also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes, so as Sony continues to develop their own Spidey-verse you never know what surprises the future might hold.”
