Stan Lee tells it how it is in CanadaPosted 12:49 pm on Wednesday, September 12th, 2012 by Jose Gutierrez III
In an interview Stan Lee did at the 2012 Fan Expo in Canada, he expressed his opinions on some of the Marvel movies. According to GeekTyrant he loved the Avengers but did not show much else about the prior Marvel comic movies before Marvel Studios began.
He had strong conjectures on a few movies. And he let the audience know without sugar coating it:
I would have liked the Hulk to be smaller in the first two movies, and I didn’t like the way Doctor Doom was portrayed in Fantastic Four,” Lee said. “Now with Daredevil, they just wrote the whole thing wrong. They made him too tragic. That’s not the way I wrote him. I think they’re working on a new Daredevil movie and it will be better, so hold your judgment until then.
I would disagree about the size issue he has with the Hulk. But who am I to argue with the man who created him. I totally agree on Daredevil and the way he was portrayed. Dr. Doom he was an okay character for an okay movie and Daredevil has been returned to Marvel. So we’ll have to wait to see if they plan to make another movie.
When asked what Marvel characters he’d like to see in he future. He answered:
Deadpool is such a popular character, I’d be surprised if he wasn’t in his own movie in the near future, or introduced in another movie first. They’re thinking about a Doctor Strange movie, a Black Panther movie, an Ant-Man movie—there’s just so many ideas in the works right now at Marvel!
Deadpool was a character in that utterly disappointing Wolverine Origins movie. As for getting Deadpool his own movie; that idea is sitting in purgatory right now, though Doctor Strange, Black Panther, and Ant-Man are being developed with scripts in hand. Ant-Man might be the only movie that will hit theaters.
I do hope we get a Deadpool movie as well as a Black Panther movie. I was never much into Doctor Strange or Ant-Man, but I will watch it if it comes out. Tell us your thought about hearing Stan Lee’s opinion on some of these movies.
