Watch Rare Footage of Stan Lee and Michael Jackson Discussing Purchase of Marvel Comics
So leave it to Reddit to direct me to an old MTV article from 2009 talking about Michael Jackson's obsession with comic books. The king of pop supposedly had a collection of comics, memorabilia, and costumes that would make any fan salivate, but it wasn't enough. In the late '90s, Jackson approached Marvel comics wishing to buy the lion's share of the company as well as invest in an upcoming Spider-Man film. Stan Lee later added that he believed Jackson wanted a role in the film, but there's no solid confirmation of that. Anyway, the above video is Stan and Michael walking around the office, discussing comics, and discussing the direction the two would like to take Marvel in the future. Something I noticed watching this video...how does Stan Lee never look older?!
