Stan Lee’s life story to be told as an action adventure spy movie from FOX

Seriously, we had to check our calendars… it’s not April Fool’s so read on.

It looks like FOX – the good folks behind X-Men and, em, Fantastic Four, have bought the rights to Stan Lee’s life story. And the movie is set to be an action/adventure, spy movie.

No, seriously.

Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey, the producers behind such movies as Twilight, The Maze Runner and the upcoming Power Rangers, are attached to produce what is described as being in the tone of Kingsman: The Secret Service or, as one insider put it, “Roger Moore’s 007.”

Lee has had a fascinating life that no comic fan wouldn’t want to see, from his early days working for his uncle at Timely comics, to the creation of The Fantastic four as his last ditch attempt at a comic book – he co-created it when he was in his 40s.

The movie, from all that we’re hearing, will be very – VERY – loosely based on facts and will be a fun, silly, exciting adventure comedy outing.

We’re not sure what this is exactly or how this is happening but, dammit, we’re all in!


Wait, we just thought… who will play him?!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
