The great Stan Lee wants to put fears to rest that Disney's takeover of Marvel Entertainment Inc. will be disastrous for the comic book kingpin and its fans. Lee says that the core young male audience has nothing to worry about.

Lee, who was recently interviewed by Reuters, said that "to me, becoming 'Disneyfied' is not a bad thing. I mean look at (Disney) movies like 'Pirates of the Caribbean."

Stan Lee, who is currently Marvel's Chairman Emeritus, also happens to be one of the co-founders of the media production company called POW! Entertainment, which also happens to have a business partnership with Disney.

"Disney knows how to do movies. They know how to do colorful characters and I think the fans, if they think about it, they're going to love it," Lee said.

CRITIC17 - 8/31/2009, 10:47 PM

Hopefully Disney will now buy back the Xmen franchise!
CRITIC17 - 8/31/2009, 10:51 PM
@Warpath: LOL!!! But yeah, that'd be a good thing
whiteassmatt - 8/31/2009, 10:51 PM
@warpath: agreed!
CRITIC17 - 8/31/2009, 10:53 PM
@White: Yes, we have everything at this site. You name it: Cap Wars, fancasts, reviews (I write a review almost every week), videos, pictures to drool over, and more... Oh your supposed to pick someone for Captain America. I'd go with Sam Worthington if I were you... ;)
himynameiszach - 8/31/2009, 10:55 PM
whiteassmatt: was up dude!
and i agree with stany disney does know what they are doing
CRITIC17 - 8/31/2009, 10:57 PM
@OZy: Nothing much man... How about you??
whiteassmatt - 8/31/2009, 10:59 PM
@thecritic: I keep kinda busy so I won't get in the way of any of the cap wars.Although they all seem very qualified for the position, maybe some more than others (wink, wink). But I will chime in occasionally! I'm kinda quiet and keep long hours of editing my music and such.

@him: whats up! nice to know everyone is good and friendly on here.
CRITIC17 - 8/31/2009, 10:59 PM
Woah... The comic book movie clock is not 2 hours behind me anymore, but 1 hour and 58 minutes... weird...
CRITIC17 - 8/31/2009, 11:00 PM
@white: Thats cool man... though the wars have kind of died down for a while, but once October or whenever we find out who's playing him, they will start up again.
TheMyth - 8/31/2009, 11:01 PM
[frick] all you and your Captain America shit! I'm going rogue and starting my own candidate now beotches! Aaron Eckhart as Cap!!! Boo-yah!!!

Whiteass, as long as you concede that X-Men are king... you and I will get along fine ;) Oh, and you are suffering from a head injury if you be thinking these assholes are friendly. Sure, they smile now, but watch what happens if you say something like 'Micheal Bay Rulez' or 'Meagan Fox for Catwoman!' Heh heh, I'm just jerkin' your chain. Welcome to CBM, where opinions can get you killed!
whiteassmatt - 8/31/2009, 11:01 PM
hopefully I don't get shut down for the screen name. I got booted off aol for it! lol

@themyth: I can say that X-men do dominate.

But I've been reading the Garth Ennis Preacher stuff and man its fantastic!
CRITIC17 - 8/31/2009, 11:02 PM
Remember, check my new article out people!!!!

http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/criticworld/news/?a=9689

@TheMyth: Eckhart could be a good Cap actually, he'd be my third choice though (after 1: Worthington, and 2: Ackles)...

@Ozy: Cool man... I still have to try and play those games
CRITIC17 - 8/31/2009, 11:03 PM
@white: No one cares about what your screen name is, I've seen more "innappropiate" screen names than Whiteassmatt so its all good
himynameiszach - 8/31/2009, 11:04 PM
the cap wars.......dude i feel like a 7 year old. lol
CRITIC17 - 8/31/2009, 11:06 PM
Stan Lee will save the day!!!!

CRITIC17 - 8/31/2009, 11:08 PM
@white: Is Preacher good? I've got a few on me now, but haven't had the chance to read them...

@OZy: What kind of PSP do you have?
CRITIC17 - 8/31/2009, 11:10 PM
@TheMyth: The X-Men RULE!!!

NERO - 8/31/2009, 11:10 PM
You know I bet Stan owns some serious shares in Marvel. He's lighting a cigar with a $100 bill after this one.
CRITIC17 - 8/31/2009, 11:11 PM
@nerosday: Your probably absolutely right
CRITIC17 - 8/31/2009, 11:15 PM
@Ozy: I have the original black one... 200 dollars for that... but I seen a picture of the one you have and it looked cool
TheMyth - 8/31/2009, 11:15 PM
TheCritic, Damn right!!!!
CRITIC17 - 8/31/2009, 11:16 PM
@Ozy: Did you check out my Transformers article in News??

@Myth: Whos your favorite X-Men character (besides Gambit)?
CRITIC17 - 8/31/2009, 11:20 PM
@Ozy: Happens to me sometimes too...

Guys remember to check out InTylerWeTrust's awesome Spider-Man recast in FanFic
Unmasked - 8/31/2009, 11:21 PM
sniff sniff
(rubs nose)

I'll take Stan's word for now.

(rubs tears from eyes)

I'll give Dis...Disn...Disney a shot. Just one shot. But if they mess up!!!

TheMyth - 8/31/2009, 11:26 PM
TheCritic, Well, Gambit is not only my favorite X-Man, but one of my favorite fictional characters of all time. But as far as X-Men go, after Gambit, Cyclops, Xavier, Rogue, and Colossus fill out my top 5.
CRITIC17 - 8/31/2009, 11:26 PM
@Unmasked: LOL!!! But your right though

@Kes: Your also right man

@Ozy: The only pick I didn't like was Black Cat: Diora Baird for Black Cat!!!! Not Ali Larter!!! (no offense Tyler)

@Myth: Cool man, my favortie is probably everyone's favorite: Wolverine!!!!
Macksimus - 8/31/2009, 11:30 PM
@unmasked

LOL, it will be alright.

HOWEVER, I'm not surprised at all that he would say this about Disney because:

1. He was a business partner with them to begin with.

2. He just MADE A CRAP LOAD OF MONEY!!!

I hope he's not just yanking our chains, but all in all, I DO TRUST STAN LEE.

^haha so true, but the guy's lived a long time so I can give him a break. He does seem to be the eternal optomist, with good reason.

Be a sad day when Stan bites the big one.

Hopefully they have scanned his head and body so he can have cameos in all Marvel movies ever made (I'm sure they have, just thought I'd say it).

TheMyth - 8/31/2009, 11:39 PM
KeepItReal!!! Where you been, or have I just been missing your posts? Either way, good to see a person with class return to the pages. Help save us from the ever increasing numbers of trogs.
CRITIC17 - 8/31/2009, 11:43 PM
@grif: I agree with you there, the first one was the best one out of all three
