There’s a chance you might remember when we called attention to an installment of Epic Rap Battles of History because it featured Steven Spielberg and Alfred Hitchcock going head to head in a face-off of crushing rhymes about film. It’s as amusing as it is surreal of a concept to even think about.
And now Epic Rap Battles is back with two more entertainment icons. This time is Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee, the creator of X-Men, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk and more, battling Jim Henson, the genius behind the fuzzy Muppets that adults and kids alike enjoy so much. However, this particular rap battle isn’t like the rest you may have seen, because a third party enters the ring to shake things up. Watch the Stan Lee and Jim Henson Epic Rap Battle below!

One of the staples of pretty much every single Marvel film, whether they’re from Marvel Studios, 20th Century Fox, Paramount Pictures, Universal Pictures or Sony Pictures, is a cameo from Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee.
The man responsible for creating Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, X-Men and more has played a variety of characters in comic book films (though there’s a theory that they’re all the same character), and as long as he’s alive, you can bet he’ll appear in every future Marvel film at various studios as well.
In fact, Lee just confirmed a cameo for X-Men: Apocalypse, but it sounds like it’ll be something a little different than what we’re used to seeing the comic creator do on the big screen. Find out more about the Stan Lee X-Men Apocalypse cameo after the jump! Read More »

Fox’s Marvel universe is a damn big place, and the studio didn’t mind reminding fans of that fact at Comic-Con. At the end of the 20th Century Fox Hall H panel on Saturday, Fox brought out every mutant, supersoldier, and interdimensional traveler it could find for one truly epic superhero selfie.
The final photo consists of over two dozen characters from Fox’s Marvel mega-franchise, including the casts of X-Men: Apocalypse, Fantastic Four, and Deadpool, plus the grandfather of them all, Stan Lee. Check it out after the jump. Read More »
Let’s be honest. When you think of cameos in movies today, you think of Stan Lee. The Marvel legend obviously didn’t invent the cameo, but he’s made it his own over the past twenty years in everything from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to the Spider-Man films, X-Men films and even Mallrats. That last one, more of an extended cameo, was directed by Kevin Smith who himself has had a good run with cameos both as an actor and director.
So what better combo than Lee and Smith to do a quick short called Cameo School which itself features some funny cameos? Smith directed Lee, who stars, but Smith also appears. Check it out below. Read More »
On a pretty regular basis, we see photos of high-end collectible figures. Most of the time, they are a 1:6 scale, and based on superhero characters.

And it’s just too funny. Check out images, video and find out more about the Stan Lee action figure below. Read More »
Well, is it coming or what? Yes, Mallrats 2 is coming according to filmmaker Kevin Smith. The writer/director first teased the sequel on his Twitter before clarifying on his podcast.

They are Stan Lee, who played himself in the original, and Michael Rooker, who played the evil Mr. Svenning, father to Brandy, who married TS when Jaws popped out of the water.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
When I interviewed Big Hero 6 directors Don Hall and Chris Williams, I mentioned to them their Marvel adaptation was missing an end credits scene like other Marvel movies. As I walked out the door, Williams stopped me and said, “See it again once the film is in theaters.” Which I did. And lo and behold, Disney Animation held back an awesome end credits scene just for paying audiences — most screenings right up until the release of the film did not have the tag.
The scene not only potentially sets up a sequel, it features a world class voice cameo. We won’t spoil it above the jump, but below, we will do so, and even show you some footage. Learn about the Big Hero 6 end credits scene below. Read More »

One of the staples of a Marvel movie is the Stan Lee cameo. He’s been in all the MCU movies to date, all five Spider-Mans, both Fantastic Fours, two X-Mens, Hulk, and Daredevil. But he never shows up as the same character twice… or so we thought.
The Stan Lee theory posits that the Marvel legend has secretly been playing the same character all along –namely Uatu, the Watcher. That, of course, would mean that all the Marvel movies take place in the same universe, even the non-MCU ones. Explore this delightfully bizarre Stan Lee Watcher theory with us after the jump.
