Stan Lee On IRON MAN 3 And Marvel Studios
Stan Lee praises director Shane Black and Marvel Studios from the set of Iron Man 3. "I think the people at Marvel who are making these movies are the most talented moviemakers on the face of the planet," says the living legend.
"It really has to do with talent. I think the people at Marvel who are making these movies are the most talented moviemakers on the face of the planet. They hire the best writers, directors - like Shane, the best actors and they take what they do seriously. They go back to the roots of the comics and they say 'What made this script so successful?' And once they decide what that element or those elements may be, they keep to those elements. Other companies, they try to improvise and they try to change things but the people at Marvel are so intelligent and so literate and so well-versed in story and photography and in movies they know how to put these elements together. They're starting out with very colorful characters but if they put them in the real world and give them real problems, then everyone wants to see it. I know the characters and I can't wait to see the movies."
