Stan Lee Comics, a joint venture between Stan Lee’s POW Entertainment, A Squared Entertainment and Archie Comics, has announced plans to offer “Stan Lee’s Mighty 7” as a movie trilogy at MipTV this April.
The animated trilogy features Stan Lee himself as a writer hired by Archie Comics to create a new group of superheroes. When seven aliens crash land near his trailer in the desert, Stan helps them make a home on Earth by teaching them how to behave as superheroes and simultaneously resolves his writer’s block.
The new offering will be presented by distributor and brand manager PGS Entertainment.
“Absolutely no one does the superhero genre better than the great Stan Lee, and in this exciting trilogy, there’s a whole new twist,” says Andy Heyward, co-president, A Squared Entertainment. “Fantasy meets reality and comedy meets adventure when a crew of aliens crash on earth and become Stan’s latest superheroes. We’re so pleased to have our partners at PGS representing this project worldwide and think broadcasters everywhere are going to love it as much as we do.”
