Stan Lee Picks The Marvel Hero He'd Like To Be And Praises The Marvel Films Of Today
Out of all the Marvel heroes that were created by Stan Lee, which one would he like to be most? Spider-Man? Hulk? Daredevil? Plus, the legendary comic book writer shares his thoughts on the current flux of Marvel adaptations.
Stan Lee ran into CNN reporters at Thursday's Iron Man marathon at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood that he would love to be Iron Man.
Stan Lee: "I think I'd want to be Tony Stark because he's the best-looking and the richest![...]When I was writing these stories, the one thought in my mind was I hoped the books would sell so that I could keep my job and be able to pay the rent," he said. "I never thought there'd be a day when I'd be interviewed by the press and there would be exhibits of the characters. It never entered my mind."
As far as adaptations of the beloved characters Stan created in the 60's, Stan went on to say, "The movies have these great special effects; there's nothing they can't do. You couldn't have done 'Spider-Man' 20 years ago - there's no way you could have had him swinging on his webs that way," Lee said. "You couldn't have done 'Iron Man' this way 20 years ago. But now anything you can imagine, no matter how wild it is, you can put on the screen."
