The Man- Generalissimo- Stan Lee is a god among Marvel fans and filmmakers. He’s written many of the Marvel comic book characters and produced all the movie adaptations. So when he announced on his official Facebook page what’s his favorite comic book movie so far, fans perked up!
He told his fans that “it was the first one that was such a hit, the first Spider-Man.”
The first Spider-Man movie, starring Tobey Maguire and directed by Sam Raimi back in 2003, was one of Marvel’s first films of the new millennia following Fox’s X-Men in 2000. It was also successful and had two Oscar nominations.
“After that [Spider-Man], everything else seemed easy,” Stan Lee added. The movie paved the way for more comic book movies.
Spider-Man does have a special place in his heart. He first made the comic book character during the silver age of comics with other well-known comic writers and artists.
The new Spider-Man franchise, starring talented newbie Tom Holland, will premiere in 2017.
