Stan Lee and Twitter belong together like Dazzler and Longshot, and he continues to make use of his newfound Internet podium with great proposals. For instance, he called upon his followers last night to launch a letter-writing campaign to get him into the next Batman movie. That's probably going to take a lot of mail.
Jon Favreau, meanwhile, arrived home safely from his press junket in Bora Bora to resume editing on "Iron Man 2," which Stan didn't need to solicit write-in votes to appear in. You can find out what they had to say below, along with who Geoff Johns introduced to "Guitar Hero," which recently arrested director angers Phil Hester, and the best reason yet that Archaia should solicit a "Dark Crystal" cover from Ben Templesmith next year.
It's all in the Twitter Report for September 29, 2009.

Parting Wisdom for the Day:
@Templesmith Watching the Dark Crystal as I draw. The opening still kicks so much arse. They don't make films like that anymore.
