A new trailer for Stan Lee’s new animated superhero series Stan Lee’s Mighty 7 just hit and – well – it leave s bit to be desired. Honestly, when a trailer hits, it should make you excited to see more and this one doesn’t excite me at all.
Basically, Stan Lee’s Mighty 7 starts with Stan Lee driving in his car talking about all the superheroes he created over his life when he sees an alien spacecraft crash in the desert. Aboard the craft are two super powered aliens bringing in five fugitives. When they crash, they start to fight with Stan Lee caught in the middle, but when the government closes in, Lee offers them all safety with one condition.
Stan Lee offers to help them as long as they let him tell their stories in a comic book.
Stan Lee’s Mighty 7 is designed to be a trilogy and is described as a “reality-style” based superhero properties. They are not just looking at the trilogy of movies, but also a comic book series and eventually an animated television series, so they are looking at going all out with this project. It sounds like Stan Lee is shooting for the stars here.
The voice cast includes Stan Lee as himself and Armie Hammer, Christian Slater, Mayim Bialik, Teri Hatcher, Flea, Darren Criss and Sean Austin. Jim Belushi voices an American military leader and Michael Ironside is Xanar, the leader of warring aliens.
The first movie – Beginnings – hits the Hub Network in early 2014, hit DVD in summer 2014 and the TV series debuts in 2015. How does the trailer look to you? Does Stan Lee’s Mighty 7 have a chance to actually be entertaining? Chime in below.
