Quotes

Kevin Smith: [talking about Spider-Man's angry DAILY BUGLE boss] Another immortal character in the Spider-Man mythos is J. Jonah Jameson.
Stan Lee: Oh, I loved him.

A nice chat, but not much new here
19 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

Stan Lee is very complimentary of his collaborators, but struggles with acknowledging them as co-creators. Lee continually brought up his fuzzy memory, but at the start of the film recollects the creation of Spider-Man in detail (maybe in response to the assertions of Kirby, or even Joe Simon, that they created the character. There's not much we didn't know here, and Smith almost answers some questions for Lee when he's asking them. Smith is annoying as an interviewer, feeling he has to say "Uh-huh", "yeah", "Hm", "right" or some exclamation after each sentence or pause that Lee makes. This film is a love letter to Stan Lee, so don't expect anything incisive or controversial. There are some nice extras, including an interview with Lee's wife, who wasn't what I expected. Label this one "For Marvel Zombies Only"
