Stan Lee’s World Of Heroes – SDCC Panel Recap

Ashley Piderman writes for Bleeding Cool:

stan-leeThis panel has the potential to be my personal highlight of the Con, but there are still two full days for me to be proved wrong.

The line up situation was a bit confusing to me, not just because I am a first timer, but also because one of the line attendants noticed Press written on my badge, so ended up being bounced around and then eventually went to the back of the line. The line up started moving about half hour before the scheduled start time, so I wandered in and took my seat in the front of house.

The panel was a bit behind schedule, but the wait was well worth it. The show started with Ben Gigli introducing himself and then we got to hear Sonya Belousova from Cosplay Piano preform her arrangements  before and after the whole panel was introduced. Her rendition of the Game of Thrones main theme quite literally gave me chills.

The Panel consisted of the man behind Super Hero Bad Days, Junaid Chundrigar. The Creators of How It Should Have Ended, Tina Alexander and Daniel Baxter. As well as Sonya Belousova. And of course Stan Lee! Although the man was a few minutes behind schedule, but we were told to expect him to enter like the rockstar that he is.

Each panel member went over how they became affiliated with the channel alined with intimidation and joy of working with Stan Lee.  During How It Should Have Ended’s intro to who they are Stan Lee walked in to a deafening welcome. He still is the man. The channel announced that there would be six more collaborations with How It Should Have Ended featuring Stan Lee’s versions of how movies would have ended them.

There were many teaser videos played on the content that has appeared and will appear in the future, including Star Wars Speed Dating, and slight changes to classic video games. Laughs were heard throughout the room. We also had a cameo from the new, improved iJustine, in her new and improved superhero costume, which apparently had free wifi. This really was a “tidal wave of goodies” and “something wonderful” as was mentioned during some of the amazing banter between Ben and Stan Lee.

New shows or continuations of old ones announced were those six new How Stan Would Have Ended It, Marvelous Movie Schwarma, along with plans to work with the nerdist. Apparently, more will be announced in the next few weeks, and I am so looking forward to it.

And when it comes to the next phases of the Marvel movies we can expect “no stone unturned and no character un-movie.

Stan Lee is one of the greats, but to see him in the same room and hear his voice, his jokes and how charismatic he can be, this was truly a great experience. I had heard of the channel prior to attending the panel, watched a few videos, primarily HESHE, but you can now guarantee that I will be a subscriber to Stan Lee’s World of Heros.
