After we're done watching movies about Marvel characters, maybe they'll start making movies their employees. I'd like to see one about the megalomaniac Stan Lee first.

lol, with all the biopics in development (PKD, etc) your suggestion makes great economic and creative sense.

Nick Nolte can play him.

Nolte is too tall and handsome and charming to play Stan Lee. Sorry Fizz!

Considering the wealth of movie cameo's the man has done, he should play himself.

Ak you're right...Nolte is too good looking for someone like Stan Lee.

The only actor I can think of who would do the role justice is Andy Serkis

David Carradine can do it.
"There's this whole school of thought that movies are always so great when you're 10 or 12 years old, and the reality of it is, when you're 10 or 12 years old, you've only seen 100 stories. By the time you get to be 25, you've seen 3,000. You've seen every permutation of every dramatic arc. And when somebody takes that and stands it on its head, that can be exciting." David Fincher

In the words of Lee himself (from silverbulletcomicbooks.com):

Quote
Meth: Who should play Stan Lee in �The Stan Lee Story?�

Lee: Let�s see� I could go for Robert Redford, Paul Newman� Errol Flynn isn�t around anymore� Marlon Brando would probably be interested�

Marvel Enterprises will pay Paramount, or any other studio, a 10% distribution fee as it sets out to make its own pics.

Company disclosed the maximum fee allowable under its loan structure during a conference call with Wall Streeters. Briefing was designed to introduce the studio's new management team sans Avi Arad and detail its upcoming slate.

The absence of Arad, who shocked many by stepping down from his post as chairman of Marvel Studios in May, was somewhat surprising as he is still producing several Marvel pics and is drawing his full salary until the end of the year as a "creative adviser."

Asked about Arad's absence, a Marvel spokesman noted that "Avi has his own production company now, and these are the Marvel executives putting forth the long-term strategy."

Investors and the press had become used to the boisterous exec as the public face of the company; Thursday call was the first major Marvel Studios event with prexy Michael Helfant and production topper Kevin Feige out front.

Marvel will use the $525 million Merrill Lynch debt facility to fund its slate, which will kick off with "Iron Man" and "The Incredible Hulk" in 2008. Par is set to release most of the Marvel pics, although Universal will distribute "Iron Man."

Responding to an analyst's question, studio execs said they aren't worried about saturating the marketplace by turning out two pics a year. They said there continues to be a "large appetite" for such pics.

Films are expected to cost $130 million or less.

Marvel execs also tried to allay concerns over New Line putting "Iron Man" into turnaround and U giving back the rights for the "Hulk" sequel. They said these are common practices in Hollywood.

Asked about potential sequels, studio said there would probably be a gap of 18-30 months between installments.
