Stan Lee might be 85 years old, but he’s showing no signs of slowing down.
Variety reports that Lee’s POW! Entertainment has inked a deal with Disney to set up three projects — titled Nick Ratchet, Blaze, and Tigress — based on characters developed by Lee. The agreement comes on the heels of a first-look deal between Disney and POW! that the companies signed in June 2007. From the article:
“Tigress” is being written by newcomer Zoe Green. State Street Pictures’ Robert Teitel and George Tillman will produce. Film is not the same as a previously announced project titled “Tigress” that Lee is developing with Michelle Rodriguez attached to star. That project is based on a “Conan the Barbarian” villainess.
According to Lee, “it’s not unlikely” that the films could inspire comic book spinoffs; as he tells Variety, “You either have a great comic book and it becomes a great movie. Or you have a great movie that becomes a great comic book. These things have a natural progression.”
