HOLLYWOOD,CA (PRWEB) October 19, 2006
One of the more interesting events of the 'scary season' is the scheduled live appearance by Stan Lee, the creator of some of the most memorable comic book and movie characters ever, like The Hulk, X-Men and Spider-Man. The event will include a special screening of Spider-Man 2 and fans are encouraged to come as their favorite 'Stan Lee character'.
The renowned Hollywood’s Master Storytellers Series will showcase the career of the legendary POW!Entertainment Chairman, Stan Lee and provide insight into a creative career that has spanned seven decades. The live interview will be conducted by special guest host writer-director Kevin Smith ("Clerks II" and "Daredevil") after a special screening of Spider-Man 2 at the Mann Grauman’s Chinese Theatre Complex on Monday, October 30, at 7:30 PM.
Hollywood's Master Storytellers co-producer, John Culton says, "This will be fun! We are inviting the fans to get into the Halloween spirit and celebrate the star-studded event by coming dressed as Wolverine, Electra, Spider-Man, or your favorite Stan Lee character."
Legendary writer Stan “The Man” Lee remains the most well-recognized figure in comic book history for creating such iconic superheroes as Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four, The Incredible Hulk, and the X-Men. Lee entered the comic book scene at the age of 17 working for Timely Comics Group, which would later become Marvel Comics. In 1942, he was promoted to editor. Under his editorial guidance, Lee’s Marvel revolution extended beyond the characters and storylines to the way in which comic books engaged the readers and built a sense of community between fans and creators. His success helped transform Marvel Comics from a small publishing house to a large multimedia corporation. He has also written more than a dozen bestselling books. Known for his signature dark sunglasses, Lee often narrates for animated series featuring his Marvel Comics characters and usually does cameo appearances in the live-action films based on his comics.
Stan Lee and guest host Kevin Smith have collaborated on several projects. Smith began a lengthy association with Marvel Comics in 1999 when he took over as the writer of the Marvel Comic Daredevil. Lee later made an extensive cameo in the Kevin Smith film Mallrats. Lee plays himself, visiting "the" mall to sign books at a comic store. Later, he takes on the role of a sage-like character, giving Jason Lee's character, Brodie Bruce (a longtime fan of Lee's), advice on his love life. He also recorded interviews with Smith for the non-fiction video Stan Lee's Mutants, Monsters, and Marvels (2002). Smith’s most recent film endeavor, Clerks II, a follow-up the 1994 cult classic Clerks, will be out on DVD on November 28th. Other popular Smith titles include Chasing Amy, Dogma, Daredevil, and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, featuring Smith himself as “Silent Bob.”
Hollywood’s Master Storytellers is known for honoring high-profile actors, directors, and writers in the industry. “I’ve produced a lot of shows over the years and I am beyond excited about this night,” says Hollywood’s Master Storytellers Executive Producer Nadine Hamdan.
