FROM MTV GEEK: Marvel's Phase Three movies remain largely unknown. "Ant-Man" arrives in November 2015, and a slew of release dates are already on hold for Marvel past that — but the exact titles remain unclear.
If Marvel legend Stan Lee is to be believed, however, we may know two of Marvel's upcoming mystery projects: "Doctor Strange" and "Black Panther."
Speaking with MTV Geek, Lee revealed his belief that Marvel will eventually get to "everything we have" in the House of Ideas' extensive catalogue, dropping the two unannounced titles as evidence.

Stan Lee's known as many things: writer, creator, showman, promoter, spokesman, and cameo actor extraordinaire. But can we add Trekkie to that list? An interview conducted by Rod Roddenberry for "Trek Nation," the documentary about his late father Gene Roddenberry, reveals that Stan Lee considered the "Star Trek" creator to be something of a kindred spirit.
"I tried to, given the fact that there was a fantasy angle [to the Marvel Comics superheroes] somewhere, I tried to make everything else as realistic as possible," Lee says to Roddenberry. "It's sort of a case of realistic fantasy, and I would say your father [Gene] was a master of that."

"Amazing Spider-Man 2" director Marc Webb has been keeping his Twitter feed alive with daily photo updates from the Spidey set's sequel. This batch of photos focuses on the days surrounding the filming of a graduation ceremony last week, with some photos showing off the exiting class and one familiar face in the crowd.

What do we have to look forward to in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2"? A whole lot, according to director Marc Webb.
"We're going to explore Peter Parker's universe more in a deeper way, and we're going to get to know some new characters who are familiar from the comics but haven't yet been introduced in our universe," Webb explained in an answer to a fan question, referencing the recently-cast Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson and rumors of Jamie Foxx as Electro. "There's a new villain and there is a further exploration of the relationship between Peter Parker and his parents, which I think will be really exciting for the audience."
The one recurring feature in Marvel movies that we look forward to seeing is the cameo appearance by Stan Lee. The comic book creator behind everything from Spider-Man to the X-Men has appeared in some small capacity in the majority of the movies made based off of Marvel comics. Most recently, he appeared as a librarian in "The Amazing Spider-Man," but apparently he didn't think that role was enough for him.
Collider was recently interviewing "Amazing Spider-Man" director Marc Webb when Lee walked in to the middle of their discussion. Lee took that opportunity to tell Webb that he wasn't that impressed with the cameo the director provided for him.
Stan Lee might be one of the proud parents of many of our most iconic comic book superheroes, but he's also not afraid to play favorites.
In a series of videos posted to his YouTube channel, Lee has given his own take on some of the biggest questions circling the comic book movie industry. Who should be the next Marvel superhero to get a movie? Did Tobey Maguire or Andrew Garfield play Spider-Man better? Which DC Comics character is Lee's favorite? Find out what he had to say after the jump.
"The Dark Knight Rises" won't have any mention of Joker, if Christopher Nolan is to be believed. But that doesn't mean the Clown Prince of Crime won't be back in the near future — and wait till you see all of his wonderful new toys!

Stan Lee is one of the coolest dudes in history. Not only is he the creator behind innumerable legendary comic book heroes, he's also incredibly charming, and fans look forward to his obligatory cameo in just about every Marvel film. So as Activision is wrapping up its "Amazing Spider-Man" game – a tie-in for the upcoming film – it seems like a no-brainer to involve Lee in the project. What I didn't expect, however, is to see the eighty-nine year old legend swinging from a web through New York City.
Yes, Stan The Man is going to be a playable character in "The Amazing Spider-Man." He'll even make snappy quips as you stare in wonder at the absurdity of the "Stan Lee Adventure Pack." Speaking to Yahoo!, Lee joked about his incredible agility on display for the game.

At this day and age, you'd be pretty hard pressed to find someone who isn't aware of Stan Lee. After all, Marvel movies are all the rage right now. With the release of "The Avengers" and "The Amazing Spider-Man" just on the horizon, and sequels to "Iron Man," "Captain America," and "Thor" in the works, it's safe to say that there is not a single person in this country that has yet to be affected by the likes of these superheroes.
Lee's place in the history of comic books and popular culture alone should be reason enough to watch "With Great Power: The Stan Lee Story," the EPIX original documentary following the life and times of Stan the man himself. However, for those a bit more skeptical about the life of Stan, we've compiled a list of reasons why we think "With Great Power" is worth a watch.

Despite the fact that virtually everyone knows who Stan Lee is, the vast majority of his life remains a mystery to most. Sure, he played an instrumental part in creating practically all of our favorite superheroes (Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, The Hulk, etc.), but that's all anyone really knows about him. That, and the fact that he has a small cameo in every Marvel movie.
Well, EPIX plans to remedy that with their new documentary about the life and times of the one and only Stan Lee. "With Great Power: The Stan Lee Story" shows us a side of Lee that we've never seen before. We see him at home with his family. We see him as a young man writing his first comic books. And we even see him enlisting in the army!
