The Hollywood Reporter has debuted the first clip from Squared Entertainment, Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment and Archie Comics’ upcoming animated film Stan Lee’s Mighty 7, which is the first of three feature-length films.
In the first film, Stan Lee is hired by Archie Comics to create a new group of superheroes. He finds himself stumped with writer’s block and heads to the desert to clear his mind. When seven aliens suddenly crash land near him and start demonstrating their various superpowers, he decides, “Perfect! They will be come my next superheroes!” But almost instantly, he realizes they are being chased by the military and aliens from their own planet, and he needs to act quickly. He makes the decision to have them move into his house in Malibu where he will teach them everything they need to know about being superheroes. Comedy and adventure ensue as the aliens try to adapt to life on earth, and their new roles as superheroes, all the while running for their lives.
Featuring the voices of Armie Hammer, Christian Slater, Mayim Bialik, Teri Hatcher, Flea, Darren Criss, Sean Austin, Jim Belushi and Michael Ironside, Stan Lees Mighty 7 will air on The Hub on Saturday, February 1 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
