We already know Marvel plans on making a Doctor Strange and Black Panther films, scripts have been written, and it's just a matter of time before it happens. But for those of you who need a little more confirmation that these movies are coming, Stan Lee is here to give you peace of mind. In a recent interview with District the comic legend had this to say,
Oh they are all being made into movies! I can tell you there will definitely be a Dr. Strange movie! They are working on Antman, which requires really small cameras! Black Panther is being developed, one of my favorites…the Inhumans…All the hero’s will eventually be made into movies."
All the superheroes will get movies! Damn, he does realize there's over 5,000 of them. But I imagine he means the main heroes that most of us know, and maybe even a few that we don't.
So have you ever wondered what exactly Lee does as an executive producer at Marvel? He doesn't do much, he just enjoys collecting the paycheck. Here's what he had to say when asked about his duties...
None whatsoever, I have very little control. I don’t see the script, occasionally I will have lunch with the director or a star, like the guy making Antman, I don’t remember his name- I don’t remember names, or Robert Downey Jr., for Ironman and we talk about the characters. But all I do for the movies are the cameos really. Then when the movie comes out I am excited to see it just like all of you. I’m seeing it for the first time.
His name is Edgar Wright Stan, and that must be a great job to not really have to do anything anymore. I guess he's earned it... right? He definitley talks to a lot of people so he should have a good idea of what is going on over at Marvel.
My most anticipated Marvel movie at this point is Dr. Strange, and who knows when Marvel will actually get around to making it. Hopefully sooner rather than later. Maybe he'll make his debut in Thor: The Dark World like it was previously rumored, or maybe he'll show up somewhere in phase three of Marvel's movie universe.
What Marvel character are you most looking forward to seeing that hasn't been made into a movie yet?
