EPIX’s Marvel Heroes Weekend Presents – With Great Power: The Stan Lee Story


Our friends over at EPIX have been kind enough to give us the heads up on a new documentary they have planned for their Marvel Heroes Weekend that will take place April 27th – 29th. The weekend will see the TV channel airing Iron Man 2, Thor, and the television premiere of Captain America: The First Avenger, all of this of course is to help get everyone excited about the May 4th release of the Avengers in theaters.

Along with those Mighty Marvel movies, the original documentary With Great Power: The Stan Lee Story, will air as well. The documentary will showcase the life and creations of Stan Lee, the co-creator of the Fantastic Four, the Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, Spider-Man and obviously so many more.

The two clips below from the documentary give us a glimpse at what we can expect:

1) Stan Lee discusses the origin of the staff nicknames that Marvel Comics was quite well known for.

2) Stan Lee explains his decision to quit Marvel Comics in the 1960s…though we fans know that didn’t occur, this event led to the very creation of Spider-Man.

The marathon weekend will also include EPIX Extra: Mighty Movie Superheroes, examining the origins and fan following of the mighty team.
