The 88-year old comic pioneer, best known for co-creating a multitude of comic characters from Spider-Man to the X-Men, Stan Lee is undeniably a cultural icon. Even if you dont read comics or give two shits who invented who, its likely you recognize that old guy who seems to pop up in just about anything comic book related. Or, you just think hes Larry King.

The documentary, WITH GREAT POWER: THE STAN LEE STORY, covers Stan-the-Mans life story, from his depression era upbringing, early days at Timely comics, World War 2 service, battles with censorship, to the revolution of Marvel comics that would change the face of comics forever. Entertainment Weekly has the exclusive trailer, which you can view by clicking HERE

The doc is playing at the Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, on Jan. 24 and features a bevy of celebrity appearances, including: Samuel L. Jackson, Nicolas Cage, Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, Patrick Stewart, Jon Favreau, Frank Miller, Jim Lee, Avi Arad, Kevin Smith, andParis Hilton?

How the F*ck Paris Hilton gets in a Stan Lee documentary is beyond me. Is there a sex tape we dont know about? Go Stan!

If youre lucky enough to catch a screening let us know what you think. Otherwise, well just kick back and wait for the eventual DVD release later this year.

Extra Tidbit: Stan Lee served as a playwright in the US Army during WWII. There were only 9 people to serve with that distinction.

This played once at a small festival I worked in early November. I'd've checked it out were I not on shift, but I was shocked to see how few people actually came out for it. Hope it's good, and if it is good I hope it does better at Slam!

he just always looks like he's having a blast, and isn't taking anything for granted.

Watching this trailer put the biggest, gooniest grin on my face. I'm with The Shred Dude in that seeing Mallrats really started making me just as interested in the people making the comics I've been reading anyway. Stan Lee is almost 90 and he's still as busy as he ever was and still acts like an excited fanboy. I can't help but feel inspired and just plain happy whenever I see or hear him talk about anything.
tl;dr - I love me some Stan Lee and I can't wait to see this movie.

Mallrats

is responsible for making me aware of Stan Lee. Before that I just read them, didn't care who was behind it all.

What a great trailer, everyone from Ringo to Sam Jackson should be talking Stan! This is a must own for me on DVD, what a remarkable life he has led.
