On this special extended-edition of The Movie Defenders podcast, the Defenders look back on the life of one of the titans of pop culture, Stan Lee, who recently left us. We talk about the first time we ever heard his voice or his name, the things he created, and the life he lived. We play a lot of Stan clips as we talk about our favorite Stan Lee cameos in a special segment of 5 by 5. We also play a very touching and funny story about how he ended up doing his first movie cameo, Mallrats.
Then, in honor of Stan, we tackle the most maligned Marvel super hero film of the last many years, X-Men Origins: Wolverine. We talk about many common criticisms, strange mutants with strange powers, the direction of the film, and yes, even that bizarre version of Deadpool that showed up.
So come with us as we celebrate the life of a giant, and maybe shed a little more light onto a movie that just might be better than you think.
