It still brings a tear to the eye to think that the iconic Stan Lee left us last November, but now comes word on a new project that will see The Man’s legacy live on in animated form.
Via Deadline, POW! Entertainment and Pure Imagination Studios are working together on an animated series called The Amazing Stan.
The show will reimagine Stan as a mischievous schoolboy, and the idea itself was conceived by Pure Imagination’s John P. Roberts and Sanjee Gupta. The pair reportedly pitched the idea to Lee and got his approval before his passing last year. Phineas and Ferb’s Scott Peterson is the person tasked with bringing animated lee to The Man.
On this news, Roberts enthused, “Stan Lee turned his childhood daydreams into a universe that features superheroes that have resonated with generations of all ages and cultures. Now, his millions of fans can look forward to seeing him appear as an animated version of his younger self for the very first time.”
At this stage, The Amazing Stan has yet to find a network home or be given any sort of rough premiere date – but expect more on the show as we get it.
