Ask almost anyone walking down the streets who Stan Lee is and they'll be able to tell you that he is one of the most prolific comic book creators of all time. Unlike Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, or Bob Kane, who created Superman and Batman respectively, Stan Lee has become just as popular as the characters he created, much like Walt Disney had become after creating Mickey Mouse.
And now, the pop-culture icon will be the subject of a new documentary titled With Great Power: The Stan Lee Story, which explores Lee's early days and his rise to fame. With interviews by comic book talent and actors such as Nicolas Cage, Tobey Maguire, Frank Miller, and more, the documentary looks jam-packed with comic book history and anecdotes.
Entertainment Weekly has provided an exclusive trailer for the film, which will be playing at the Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, Utah on January 24. Let's hope it gets a wide release some time in the near future as well.
