Amazing Spider-Man 2 discussed by Stan Lee in latest video

Tuesday, 29th April 2014 20:12 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

With The Amazing Spider-Man 2 landing on PS4 and PS3 this week, Sony thought it would be grand to speak to Spidey’s creator Stan Lee. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game releases for 3DS, PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, and is out today on Xbox One and Xbox 360.

    Even though I dislike the direction Marvel has taken at the moment (the dichotomy of a new ‘for kids’ vision mixed with one of the most openly perverted and misogynistic writers who’s ever worked for Marvel), I still really dig the Generalissimo, and though I despise the current Spidey stories (nothing will ever match the ’70s and early ’80s stuff for me), I’m still a Spidey fan.

    So I’m going to pick this up and have a blast swinging around, and that I get to natter at the Generalissimo is just a massive bonus, for me. Stan is one of the original comic nerds, and he really loves and believes in his characters. This always comes over with pretty much anything that he himself made, and Spidey was created (alongside the venerable Mr. Ditko) by the Generalissimo.

    You can just hear it in his voice, he still has so, so much love for the character. And I have a great amount of respect for Beenox for letting a 91 year old comic book nerd meet and talk with one of his earliest creations. That’s the stuff of wonder, right there. I just wish it were more common. If we were more invested in actually helping people realise their dreams rather than festering with our survival instinct and parasitically always looking out for only oneself or one’s herd, the world would be a much better place.

    But that’s like wishing for the moon, innit?

    Still, we have this slice of wonder, here, and I think it’s fabulous of Beenox to have enabled it. Bless you, Stan Lee, you’re one in a million.

    Ok, I’ll bite. After reading both this comment and the one you left on the previous Star Wars article, I’m really curious at what your underlying beef is with Brian Michael Bendis and “post-Disney” Marvel comics.

    In your last post you told us to “seriously, look up Bendis”. So I did. The first thing I found was a blog praising him for slamming a mysoginistic writer demanding to know why he put female X-Men as the main characters of his X-Men comics. How is this guy “the most openly perverted and misogynistic writers who’s ever worked for Marvel”?

    On top of that, Bendis has had the least to do with Marvel then ever before. The most important thing he’s done in recent years is write Ultimate Spider-Man #200. He works on a few X-Men comics and that’s about it. He doesn’t write the big events, he doesn’t architect new heroes, and he definitely isn’t on the executive team. Why do you act like he’s running the show? If anything, Disney is giving Marvel more creative freedom than ever, allowing them to bring back non-mainstream heroes as well as support them in giving a free iPad code with EVERY new comic you buy. This is something no other comic book company is consistently doing.

    How can you also say that Disney is aligning their comics with the movies? Marvel comics has had nothing to do with the films other than the most popular characters getting movies. Iron Fist and Moon Knight just started new runs as did several other comics. Infinity, last year’s event, was an all-out galactic war staring Avengers who will never appear in the films. This summer’s event is a murder mystery involving The Watcher. Please explain to me again how the comics are mirroring the films?

    Anyway, I’m seriously not trying to start an argument with you, I’m just really curious on what you’re basing your essays on, because I can clearly tell you have not read anything recent that Marvel has put out.

    Yeah Wulf… from the 2nd Paragraph down, great comment. I agree with you.

    But what have you got against Bendis? He revitalized Marvel in many ways. Saved them even with the Ultimate line. Long time reader here too. Been reading since 1989 and have read all Spiderm-Man back to the 60s among other comics.
