Walt Disney Gets Stan Lee
Walt Disney Studios has signed an exclusive multi-year deal with Stan Lee and his production company POW! Entertainment Inc. Lee and POW! will be developing and producing "all sorts of entertainment," according to the House of Mouse.
After a nearly unbroken string of successful movies based on characters and/or concepts which Lee helped to develop, this deal’s a natural. It’s also ironic, as his former employer – Marvel – has been patterning itself after Disney of late. Stan is expected to retain his credit as Marvel’s chairnam emeritus.
The question is, is the world ready for the True Believer animatronic?
Thanks to John Tebbel for the timely lead.
