Want to know what Stan Lee‘s least favorite Marvel movies are? In a recent interview at the 2012 Fan Expo in Canada, the comic book legend talked about his characters being adapted for the big screen. He loved The Avengers, but didn’t seem to really care for some of the other films that were made before Marvel started making their own movies.
I would have liked the Hulk to be smaller in the first two movies, and I didn’t like the way Doctor Doom was portrayed in Fantastic Four. Now with Daredevil, they just wrote the whole thing wrong. They made him too tragic. That’s not the way I wrote him. I think they’re working on a new Daredevil movie and it will be better, so hold your judgment until then.
He then goes on to talk about about some of the Marvel superheroes he’d like to see up on the big screen,
Deadpool is such a popular character, I’d be surprised if he wasn’t in his own movie in the near future, or introduced in another movie first. They’re thinking about a Doctor Strange movie, a Black Panther movie, an Ant-Man movie—there’s just so many ideas in the works right now at Marvel!
He obviously isn’t up to date on what’s going on in the Marvel movie world. The Daredevil movie has been scrapped, and Fox is letting the rights revert back to Marvel. Deadpool has been in development for years, but is currently sitting in hell. As for Doctor Strange, Black Panther and Ant-Man, all of them are in development with scripts, but Ant-Man is the closest one to getting the green light.
What are your thoughts on Fantastic Four, the way Doctor Doom was Portrayed, and Daredevil?
