Kevin Smith wants to direct a biopic about Stan Lee – GeekTyrant

There is no doubt that one day a stan lee Biopic is being done and it would be pretty cool if Marvel Studios did that. But who would direct this film? Spring, Kevin Smith throws his name in the hat.

During a live episode of FatMan BeyondWhen asked which biopic he would most like to direct, the filmmaker replied, “Stan Lee would make an amazing biopic… However, I don’t think I have the talent to tell that story.” I think I’m only good enough to do the Kevin Smith biopic, but if someone were like that, here’s a blank check and you can do whatever you want, as far as biopics go, I’d try to go with Stan Lee .

It’s no secret that Smith idolized Lee, and he even cast him in his classic film mall rats. It was Stan Lee’s feature film debut and that led to him appearing in all sorts of projects over the years, including his amazing streak of cameos in the Marvel movies.

Smith paid a heartfelt tribute to Lee after his death, writing: “Apart from my parents, you were the only adult who gave me the most useful life skills that I still use today. Thank you Stan for not only making me the boy I was, but also the man I am today. You had great power and always used it responsibly, nurturing billions of dreamers who all know your name – a name that is written in the stars for all time. You weren’t just the literary titan of comics, you were our modern-day Mark Twain. I will miss you all my life, my friend and hero. Excelsior forever.”

I think it would be pretty cool if Smith finally got the opportunity to do a Stan Lee biopic. I would be very curious to see how he would handle it, but I bet he would do it in a fun and creative way.

Lee had previously expressed interest in making a film about him, and at one point there were even talks with him Leonardo DiCaprio about starring in it. Referring to this, Lee said, “I’m doing a movie of a lifetime where he plays me, and I said, ‘I’m not sure you’re good enough looking. We’ll test you, see how you look, see how it comes out, don’t get too excited, we’ll let you know.”

Additionally, a Stan Lee/Jack Kirby biopic script titled made the rounds in 2020 wood wool!, which would have told the story of the creation of Marvel Comics and its two main architects. This screenplay made the Blacklist of Best Unproduced Screenplays.

At the moment, as far as I know, there are no current plans regarding a Stan Lee biopic, but perhaps Smith could help get it started. Even though he’s not directing, I imagine it would be cool for Smith to be there as a producer and push it forward. What do you all think?
