STAN 'THE MAN' LEE AND KEVIN SMITH TEAM UP FOR MAVERICK INTERACTIVE'S FIRST DVD RELEASE
One's the biggest name in comic book history, the other's the hottest moviemaker in the world under 40 – together they're dynamite in Marvel Then & Now: An Evening With Stan Lee and Kevin Smith
, available on DVD just in time for the holidays as the debut feature from the Tampa studios of Maverick Interactive.
Filmed in front of a packed house at UCLA, Then & Now
is two-and-a-half hours of Marvel tales and nuggets from the man who created Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four, The Incredible Hulk and legions of other legendary superheroes and nefarious villains. Lee is joined by Joe Quesada, the current editor-in-chief at Marvel Comics. Smith, director of fan favorites and box office hits like Clerks, Clerks II, Dogma, and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, ties the evening together as host and taskmaster.
In addition to the main feature, Then & Now
sports a host of bonus material, from VIP room interviews to a behind-the-scenes reel with special guests like comic creators Brian Pulido and Jeph Loeb.
Marvel Then & Now
sells for $24.99; a portion of the proceeds benefit The Hero Initiative, a charitable foundation benefiting struggling comic industry veterans.
